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.

Roger, the GENIUS !!!

Concentration, be confident, play aggressively, 100% FIRST serve,
do not let JB to take any advantage from you, put him off every point,
make him feel unconfortable at the court - to loose points, and I
want to see you dancing at the Court, dearest MAESTRO !!!!!!

Come on ROGER, beat him one more time, WE are waiting to
celebrate with you again with another victory !!!!

GO ROGER GO, CHAMP !!!!!
