In round 2 with ease

15.01.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger opened his 2013 Australian Open quest with a straight-sets win against Benoît Paire today.

"I'm happy, he's a good player, good talent and I have not played a match this season yet so I wasn't sure and that's why you're relieved when you're through the first one," Roger said.

It was Roger's first match on the Tour since the ATP World Tour finals in London in November, and he showed no real signs of rustiness, breaking the Frenchman six times and serving solidly himself to secure a 6-2, 6-4, 6-1 win.

Competing in his 53rd straight Grand Slam, Roger is bidding to become only the second player after Australia's Roy Emerson (six titles from 1961-1967) to win five Australian Open titles. Our champ could regain the number one spot should he win this year's Australian Open while Novak Djokovic would drop out before the semi-finals.

***shadows and dust***
That's so nice! I also just watched the 1/4 final from 2010 against davydenko. I only hope Roger will play like hè did from the score 3-2 in the second set! If hè does that, there is no stopping him! Lets also hope davydenko is a bit worn out from last week.... I hope for a nice match but preferably an easy win, so straight sets. Go Rog!!you can do it! I love you. You are the best, now and forever.
