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).

News article title on US Open Website:
"Five-time champ Federer frustrates Young"

I guess you frustrated his father as well! He kept taking notes all along the match. And TV cameras only focused his box but not yours (except at the very end, at 1st match ball). Who knows why?

Well, well...
...this time you didn't ask us about the colour of the socks.
But you're very diplomatic: at Roland Garros you wore black as some fans preferred and here at the US Open you wore white as some other fans (like me) prefer.

Back to tennis: Keep rogering all your opponents!

Well, Federer really looked relaxed today and had a comfortable victory. What's more important this time is how he will play when he reaches the second week of the tournament. Since the last 3 years at US Open, he has been defeated in a heartbreaking manner, losses in which he could have easily won. The difference now is he is World No. 1, has the confidence and belief to reclaim his throne at Arthur Ashe stadium.. Go Roger!

Wow! Last night, you looked the younger player on the court. Speed, accuracy and focus were main qualities I noticed in the match against the American Donald Young. Great opener!
Next Phau from Germany. Go and get him, Roger!
