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 would say: remove those upper sections and get a roof, but who am I :-)...?

But you seem to be handling it all very well and have done so over the years since you have done so well here over the past years. May this year be no different!

I wsh you all the very best for your next match against Bjorn Phau.

Hello Roger,
A good start against a potentially tricky opponent. Donald Young may have dropped in the rankings and lost more matches over the last months than he won, but you can never be sure.
I must say that the US Open is my least favourite of the 4 grand slams, because there always is so much noise and the crowd seems to be more interested in their own conversation than in the tennis. I do wonder why people bother to buy a ticket for that nosebleed section at all: one can hardly see....

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

SPEED is the most important factor in winning against MURRAY & DJOKOVIC as they can reach any part of the court with ease!!! Therefore, you have to play OFF-GUARD shots, so that you won't get tired & waste your energy !!!! REMEMBER THIS !!!
