Round two in London

28.07.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger had to fight in the opening round of the Olympic tournament at the All England Club today, defeating Colombia's Alejandro Falla 6-3, 5-7, 6-3.

"It's great coming back (after winning Wimbledon), but it's so much harder to do it again in the first round knowing that every match for me is like a final. I'm really relieved and hoping to keep it up," Roger said.

Our champ seemed to absolve the first round with ease, when he allowed Falla back into the match after wasting three match points in the second set. He was then pushed hard by the world number 51 in the decider before sealing a tougher than expected win on his fifth match point.

Roger will now face Julien Benneteau in the last 32. Roger had to come from two sets down to win against the Frenchman in this year's Wimbledon.

So happy and relieved you're thru to the 2nd round my Dearest Roger. It was frightening to watch you get broken while serving for the match. Here in the US we were served an AM Horror show .. lol.. but you were down briefly & not out, your mental strength boggles the mind. Best of Luck against the "Mad Hitter" Benneteau, Oh boy such wicked match ups. But you can do it GREATEST.. Alles Suisse .. Make it a real fun match, we'll be in battle with you in spirit ..

Hugs
