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).

The best on your Thursday second match against Mr. Phau of Germany. Did not realize you lost once to him in 1999 in DC Washington. So interesting. Please stay healthy and happy. We all support you now and always.

So wonderul to see you in full display, well, as much as was needed! You raised your level as required, but there is more there, I know. Good going, and please keep your focus, and your goal firmly in your depths always. This sounds like a noisy pro American tournament to me, with the comms talking always about American players. Sure, but ATP is international, as is the sport. They try to create public opinion: but you make it when you play. Feel well, and steadfast, and carry the fire inside.

Good win, Roger! Good luck for the rest of the tournament, I know you will do great! God Bless!
