Roger breezes through

19.01.2009 | Tennis

Roger got his bid for a record 14th Grand Slam title underway today with a 6-1, 7-6 (4), 7-5 victory over Andreas Seppi.

 

"He is a very tough customer, he played really well," Roger said of the 35th-ranked Seppi. "I think I played well, too. I had to."

 

Our champ was at his best on the big points on the opening day. He certainly raced through the first set but seemed to take his foot off the accelerator in the second. He managed to win the match without dropping a single service game but he had to save ten break points.

 

He faces Russian qualifier Evgeny Korolev (ATP 118, a cousin of Anna Kurnikowa) in the next round.
