Roger rushes in round 2

26.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger was in cruise control mode to win his first game at Roland Garros 6-2,6-2,6-3 in 80 minutes. Carreno-Busta, a 21 year old qualifier, was considerably outclassed by our Champ - it also helped that Roger managed to have 67% of first serves in completing 10 aces in the process. His second serve was even better with a 74% success rate. A good start to his challenge for the French Open.

Next up will be another qualifier: Somdev Devvarman (ATP 188) or Daniel Munoz-De La Nava (ATP 145).

Well done, Roger! I was watching your match, it was great! I wish you good luck for the next round! Just keep it up and go for it :)

I hope Roger is watching as this is an eye opener. Brands is defeating Nadal quite fuss free. It is wonderful to watch. Do hope he can take this tiebreak and go 2 sets up.
Allezzzzz Brands!
