A successful start

03.01.2006 | Tennis

Roger has made a great start into the new season. He dropped just four games in posting a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Ivo Minar of the Czech Republic in Tuesday's first round of the season-opening Qatar Open.


"I am overwhelmed by this start into the season," Roger said. "It is always important to win the first match of the year. I felt I was playing well in training -  I was also able to show it in the match."


Roger will meet Fabrice Santoro (ATP 58) in the second round on Wednesday. The Frenchman, suffering from pain in the neck, dropped Oliver Marach (ATP 127) of Austria, 6-0, 2-6, 6-4.
