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"

Hi Roger, one down, four more to go.
I watched the whole match. Yes, in the beginning you were rusty, but like a maestro you found your rythem again and won with some good points.
To tell the truth, Grega was not bad either. He played really good and made you run a lot, but you won.
PLEASE MAKE IT TO THE SEMIS, BECAUSE I HAVE GOT THE TICKETS ESPECIALLY TO SEE YOU. Did not know whether you would play in the day or at night, so I bought them both. How is that for your die hard fan, huh??
