Roger eases through

13.02.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Our Champ opened his account in Rotterdam with a convincing win over Grega Zemlja 6-3, 6-1 in only 57 minutes. Roger is the current defending champion in this event which he has now appeared in 8 times and won twice. It took Roger only 29 minutes to get through the first set with service games that were impenetrable and he won it 6-3. The second set was no better for Zemlja and Roger was quickly up to a 3-1 lead drilling forehand winners right and left. Another weapon he employed was the odd backhand which he used sparingly but to great effect and closing out with a break in the penultimate game. This was our champ at his brilliant best.  ''Hall play is different. It's warmer, so the ball flies more and it takes a bit of getting used to,'' Roger said. ''The first ones are never easy but I'm happy to be back and playing well. I've been here and preparing for a few days, but matches are always different than training"

Hello Roger,
Your first match of the tournament gave the fans what they came to see: a quick match with brilliant shots, good serves and a very open and friendly oncourt interview afterwards. The red shirts and caps and flags were everywhere, not only high up in the stadium, but also in the business seats in the VIP boxes close to the court. I have a ticket for the whole week, together with members of Fans4Roger from Switzerland and the members of RF.com who organized the RE this year.

Hi Rog, Congratulations, great start, and lovely to see you play. I think because you were finished so early, they showed a film of practically all your wins over the years, also great to watch, you certainly have cried a lot of tears over the years!, but just shows how much this sport means to you. Good luck against de Bakker. Take care.
