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.

How can a guy ranked 116 play like this? Roger is serving and playing well. We have had some magic from him. This guy is not meant to play like this. As we know, if he gets past RF (God forbid) he will not play anything like this and be beaten straight sets.

Yes last year McEnroe was very dismissive of Roger .....

The only thing is that you lose the atmosphere!

Obviously McEnroe is envious of Roger for many years now. So no wonder he talks that way.

I wish Mac Enroe would shut up !!

It is not over yet. Roger is playing very good, but so is the other guy.
