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).

I love Rafa but please note one and for all, I love Roger more.

As I said prior, he too deserves respect. Roger too has tremendous respect for him saying Rafa should be seeded much higher in The French Open. (God give me strength!)

No more Botting. I\m not interested in a pointless silly argument with you.

The bottom line is that for some unknown reason to us all, Roger is not winning these days. His performances are erratic and to his devoted fans are suffering, such is the pain of these losses.

Let's hope for the best for him in the coming tournaments. We all know he's highly talented! X

Watching right now how two players in the 30 are playing with such spirit
Ferrer and Haas. People should ask themselves why Federer is playing without hart
after the so called hard work in Switzerland.
