In round three with ease

31.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger cruised into round three at the US Open with a very clear 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Germany's Bjorn Phau today.

“It was a great match for me,” Roger said after the match. “Bjorn had some incredible shot-making."

Top-seeded Roger needed only 90 minutes to close out the match and showed glimpse of his abilities to outclass Phau in their fourth encounter. He finished with 44 winners to 16 for his overmatched opponent and also with 15 aces.

Roger will play Spain's Fernando Verdasco in the third round on Saturday and said: "The next match with Verdasco will be another tough one. He’s a guy who has been around a long time and had some big wins. He’s a lefty, so that makes things different.”

Thank you for the beautiful show, you toyed with Phau and owned him, you ruled the court actually. So happy to see you enjoying Phau's tennis. He has a good game and sorry to see him upstaging you with a few stunning shots, just a few for old times sake. Today it's a different story, it's hot and humid and I hope your fitness helps you withstand the tough conditions. Best of Luck Dear Roger .. Have a good match

*WilliamAlphonso* I really do wish you would stop with the advice to the World No.1, holder of 17 Slam titles!!!! It is SO VERY annoying...you do it all the time. Roger needs no advice from anyone other than his team. Can't you just wish our champ all the best and good luck like the rest of us: that's all he needs - us rooting for him as always, so Go Champ, love and energy to you, xxxxxxxx

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

I understand that you can't really play that well against left handed players but when you feed loose balls in front of these fire power lefty players, what can you expect??? It's the same thing, you play Nadal or play Verdasco, they are the same style players, except Nadal has extra power!!! You better find his weakness and capitalize on it!!! Good Luck! but please, focus on 100% serve.
