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.

Roger still haven't improved on his backhand return after I have posted so many suggestions sigh...his backhand return is very weak but his otoher clutch shots are amazing that makes it up for it....Roger must return backhand return and net errors.

That is a relief, one set up. This guy is playing well and is dangerous. He is trying to do a Darcis on our Rogi! Roger is making good use of his aces I am very pleased to see!

Come on Roger, I believe in you. You can do it. Your opponent looks dangerous,
but you can do it !!!

The opponents fall away one by one as I said before... for their own reasons. Focus and play. This one is yours. Hugs and best wishes!

So... I hear you have to change your shoes. The soles they say were too bright? One article said - "he could play in shoeboxes, wooden clogs or bare feet and still make the semifinals." I think you can win the final in them all! Good luck. Love you!
