A perfect start

24.06.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger made a perfect start into the tournament in Wimbledon with a 6-3, 6-2, 6-0 win over Victor Hanescu.


Looking back at his first title in 2003, Roger commented: "It's slightly different. Nine years ago when I came out the first time, it was the most special thing in the world. It still feels amazing. It was an absolute pleasure playing on Centre Court."

Roger found his rhythm right from the start, winning 90 percent of the points when he put his first serve in. He scored seven aces and just six unforced errors. In the final set, Roger left a mere 4 points for Hanescu to score.

Our champ will now meet Sergej Stachowski (ATP 116) in round two. Roger clearly won the only match between them so far.

He's not playing badly it's just the other guy is bettering him just like Tsonga a couple of years ago .....

He is just wasting too many breakpoints... And that's costing him the match. You can't win without breaking. He couldn't convert a 15/40 few times already...

I told Roger to play every match like those are practices against Nadal. it's a very good way to improve. hope he listen to this.

Well that's it and Wimbledon is over for me. My home tournament.

An injury just like Rafa? An excuse then? Surely not!

Stakhovsky looks more prepared, planned, determined and playing better than experienced Roger. What a sloppy and docile match by Roger against a player who had criticized him last year. Roger seems to have lost focus after the need to play the Nadal QF disappeared and after the accolades he got from crushing Hanescu. Or was Roger spending too much time on ATP Player Council business during Wimbledon? Ugh.
