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.

Dear Rog, good luck on your matches: singles, and doubles with Stan. It was nice seeing you and Mirka watching Stan's match to give support.

All the best for today against Benne - at least that match is sure to take place whatever the weather. Hope you can come out in a dominant frame of mind and blast him off the court. Best of luck for you and Stan in the rescheduled dubs match later on and pray that it stays fine and warm for you so you get that match out of the way. Lots and lots of love and best wishes for 2 victories!!! xxxxxxx
