Clear victory to start with

14.05.2008 | Tennis

Roger moved on to the round of the last 16 in the Hamburg Masters with an effortless 6-1 6-3 victory over Jarkko Nieminen today.

It took Roger only 58 minutes to rack up his ninth straight-sets victory from nine meetings with the Finn, who, as usual, was outclassed by our star. Roger used a full range of shots to dominate the first set, taking a 4-1 lead with a powerful forehand winner past the stranded Nieminen. The level of play dropped a bit in the second set, with four straight breaks of serve at the start. Roger then made the decisive move with another break for a 4-3 lead and wrapped up the match. He had 22 winners, twice as many as Nieminen.
