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.

I am the most ardent roger fan...but one has to admit just like Sampras this could be the end for roger .....maybe one more slam just like Sampras to sign off on a winning note...it usually ends where it all started

well from this moment everything is falling apart. Federer is going to drop 1920 points, and he goes to number 6 in the ATP rankings.

Roger must adopt the method of moonballing from Nadal to avoid net errors and have the confidence back on his game and improve on his backhand return to have good results ahead!

Having watched all your finals at Wimbledon since 2006, you could ace guys with your eyes closed, it helped you on the big points, these things don't last forever, when you saved the match point I thought of 2008, but it's 2013 and you are not going to get those quick points like before. Accept that the streak was going to end and it is a blessing in disguise since you can play without pressure at grandslams now.

Tonyn,

Did Stakovsky criticize Roger last year? What did he say?
