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.

Second set snoozes! I thought you gave those up! But struggling in the early rounds seems to be a good sign. You always win the title in the end. I must say, you played brilliantly in the first set. Try to make it a two-fer with Benneteau. And no more snoozing!!!

I echo what previous posters have said, "Phew!!!"
Congrats on making it to round 2.
We love you and we believe in you.
BELIEVE!
