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).

Stunning performance indeed. You are the USO brightest star and its fireworks. I was so proud to watch your Mercedes commercial on my local TV here in NY. Fly high and higher Dearest Roger. I was at your Friday practice and I have to apologize for my screams to get your attention. I was calling you my Swiss-made Superman. I assure you I'm an educated, suave and mature lady but all that goes out the window when you appear .. Wishing you smooth sailing against Phau, Alles..
