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).

First i dont like Novak, but i dont think that you should be pleased with Novak's defeat or anybody else's who is good at tennis. For you its the best that all good players go out and then Roger have clear pass for title. I think if Roger wants to play good tennis he should be able to WIN every match. It isnt same if you beat Novak or Rafa in finals or somebody else. It isnt same satisfaction.
PS: Roger I wish u all luck to win the tournament.
