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).

Boting, whatever you think, some of the words you have used are crude. I don't care whether they come from football fans or whoever else - they are still crude and therefore disrespectful. This isn't a football terrace, it's the website of *Roger Federer*. Or do you think Roger will love to see messages insulting him and crude words/phrases in "football" language directed at some of his fans or himself? And also using capitals indicates shouting. Why do you need to shout? Why not be respectful?

Yes of course Rosaline I agree wholeheartedly with you. I'm sorry you thought otherwise!

Fancyfree - if there are no mods here, it doesn't mean that people posting here should be as insulting/crude/objectionable as they please? Or do you think it's just fine to be insulting/crude etc on Roger Federer's website *so long as a Mod doesn't catch you*?

I don;t think there are any Moderators here Rosaline as it is not technically a thread! Just as well or many of us would be shown the red card!

Reread some of your back posts, Boting. You have used some crude words and phrases to some other(s) posting here which is very impolite behaviour. I must assume you aren't English if you think those words/phrases are not rude in English. However I was originally referring to some other posters who have insulted Roger and if you look back you'll see those messages unless the Mods have now deleted them.
