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.

Good luck today in doubles with Stan. He has a tough match in singles, but I hope he can recover for doubles, so you can defend your gold medal !

You can watch Roger's or other matches online using the live streaming sites such as www.livescorehunter.com and www.sportlemon.com. Go to the website, select tennis from the various sports, and then find the match you want to watch. Wait for the first ad to disappear, don't try to close it. Is nice watching full screen option. If stream dies, go through the process again. Avoid links relating to betting unless you want to bet etc. It's very easy once you're used to doing it.
