Roger powers in Cincy

16.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger made a perfect start into the Cincinnati Masters, defeating Alex Bogomolov 6-3, 6-2.

"It was a good match for me," Roger commented. "It was a good win. I don't know his game that well, but we played a good match. The switch from grass to hardcourt is difficult. This court is faster than Wimbledon and the bounce is really high. It was a good first round for me. It may have gone quickly and there were hardly any rallies, but I was pleased to close it out."

Roger showed an excellent display, impressing with his winners, serves (12 aces) and also approaches to the net. Our champ was able to break the Russian to take a 3-1 lead in the first set and again in the second to move ahead 1-0 and 4-1. The match lasted just an hour as Roger dominated all aspects of the match.

Roger will now play Bernard Tomic in the round of the last sixteen on Thursday. Roger clearly won both encounters with the young Australian last season.

Bravo, you played aggressively, really impressive.

I was happy it was a fast match. I woke up at 1:10 a.m. and could go back to sleep after your 60 minutes and 10 seconds show. Nice!
