In control

08.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger made a successful start after a break of several weeks, defeating Radek Stepanek 6-3, 6-3 at the Madrid Open.

"I didn't think I played incredible, but that's not what I was expecting myself to do here. But I didn't play bad, either. So I'm very happy with how things went today. Stepanek is a player who can cause a lot of difficulties in the game. He has caused me difficulties in the past. Today that wasn't the case. I thought I was pretty much in control," Roger said after the match.

It didn't take long for Roger to get into the rhythm of his game, cruising past stepanek in 81 minutes. He will now either play Japan's Kei Nishikori (ATP 16) or Viktor Troicki of Serbia (ATP 44).

After playing so well and winning the 2nd set against Kei, I just couldn't believe what happened to Roger in the 3rd set, I was totally bemused.

So Feds in Rome I will be supporting you all the way and at every point.

" GOOD LUCK FEDS FOREVER"

EVERYBODY - I HAVE WATCHED ROG FOR MANY YEARS - IN THE FINAL SET, HE HAD BREAKPOINTS AGAINST KEI.HE HIT 6 SERVICE RETURNS. 5 WERE OUT !!!

I'VE NEVER NEVER SEEN THAT !!! HE WAS TRYING BUT HE EITHER MISSEDD THE LINES BY 1 mm OR HE WAS OUT BY A MILE SHANKING THE BALL AGAIN AND AGAIN.

WHEN HE MISSED THE 5 SERVICE RETURNS I KNEW HIS CHANCES WERE COLDER THAN FREEZING WATER - I LOVE HIM BUT I FEAR THIS IS NOT THE LAST TIME HE WILL DO THIS , THIS YEAR AND I AM THE ONE WHO PREDICTED 4 MORE GSs FOR

FANCYFREE...ROGER didn`t win Rome and Monte carlo before

Concerning Rome dont know if I am wrong but cannot remember he ever won
that title.

Yes he lost and I'm disappointed too. Yes I also wonder if he will have it in him a grand slam again. I think Roger has doubts as well sometimes but he also knows he is still one of the best and he loves a challenge. He will come back strong(er) because he is still young enough and fit enough. It's getting tougher and tougher but others will have bad periods as well. This defeat will wake Roger up and let's not forget that this was his second match in a long time. Give the guy some credit please
