Roger stunning in opener

28.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger produced a great display in the opening round of the US open, dismissing Donald Young (ATP 81) 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.

"I think it was a good start in difficult conditions," Roger said. "He was a talented opponent and I'd never played him before but it was good."

Our champion did not get distracted by the windy and humid conditions at Flushing Meadows, clearly dominating the match and making it clear that he was aiming for a fast first-round victory.

After 3-3, he took all further games in the opening set. Improving even more, the second also went onto his account with ease 6-2. Young did manage a break in the thrid set, but Roger finally secured the match upon his third match-ball after 94 minutes of play.

Roger will now play Germany's Björn Phau (ATP 83).

After an exhausting Notting Hill Carnival here in London, your match was just too late too watch here! Thrilled that when I woke up to learn of your victory! As you have said "it will take something special to beat me" Yes indeed! You are so wonderful!
