Round three in Paris

31.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Our Roger came through the 3rd round with a commanding 6-3, 6-4, 7-5 against Benneteau in 91 minutes today.


Every time the Benneteau raised his game so did our champ – even with a break down in the final set Roger broke back at 4-5 for 5-5 and went on to win the set 7-5. Benneteau gave him his stiffest test so far and there was some delightful touch tennis volleys between the two. In the end Roger’s champion’s approach outclassed his opponent. 


He will now meet either Sam Querry or Giles Simon in the next round.

So far Simon has only won 2 points on Roger's serve in the 5th. Looking good :)

He is still missing easy balls he cannot afford to get broken.

You can win this game. And I will be very happy with that. But so far you have 50 unforced errors. It is too much. You have to take calm and put the ball back to the other side. Sometimes you have to try a winner, but you do not need to do this all the time. Take calm, like Rafa did. That is why he win you so frequently.
