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.

All good luck and love for your match against Davy. Keep it choppy Roger, don't let him get into that hideous corner-to-corner baseline rhythm. Will be watching and cheering for you as ever. GO ROGER!!! xxxxxx
