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).

i don't think draws are rigged but RF got all the big servers in his half; milos, tsonga, berdych, cilic, and murray. ND got tipsaravic, ferrer. he got roddick, stan, gulbis, isner, and delpo. roddick not good, isner usually has a long game and in tired by the time he gets to anyone of substance, gulbis too erratic and wins only one big match, and delpo and his wrist are questionable. stan gets close but that's all. hopefully it will all turn out easier for RF than i think. hope so.
