Roger wins second match

29.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

A 23minute first set sums up the total domination of Roger over the 188th ranked Indian Somdev Dewarman when he won 6-2, 6-1, 6-1. Our champ was able to spray shots all over the court with ease as he cruised into the 3rd round of the French open.


“I tried to finish the match quite quickly, because I was afraid it would rain," Roger said. "So I was very focused, and I'm very happy for that." As a sign of his staying power, Roger moved ahead of Budge Patty into third place on the men's list for match victories at Roland Garros with 56. Guillermo Vilas and Nicola Pietrangeli share the record of 58. “I'm happy that I was playing offensive and aggressive tennis in the first two matches," he said. "I didn't back off and start to play passive tennis and wait for mistakes. I took it to my opponent."

Next up is Julien Benneteau who could well present Roger with a much sterner test.

Wow roger you are doing exactly the same thing as you fans are expecting. You are making short work of early round opponents to prepare yourself for bigger competitions. Julien can not even touch you in third round at this level. Make his quick work. Stay healthy good luck

1-\(^o^)/ Superb! peRFection!

Smart and precise display! Unbelievable shots, beautiful game. Well done Roger. That's the spirit! Total delight!

You opponent was like: \(//∇//)\'Was that a tornado, a hurricane? Lighting fell all over me! What was that?!' And I'm like: (*´◡`*)'Don't worry about it! It was just your friendly neighborhood RF THE actual superhero.'

2-Roger I think you are at your physically strongest ever. You have a spectacular athletic physic, supremely beautiful and effective! And yet you have this amazing extension. You are something else. Mr. Paganini should write a book, need to know all his secrets, big fan!

You know I'm perfectly entertained, in my humble opinion things are fine. There's more to the game than pyrotechnic shows. And it was nice to have Fabrice for the on court interview; liked this one.
