A start in straight sets

31.08.2009 | Tennis

Roger got his bid for a sixth consecutive US Open title going in convincing fashion with a comfortable 6-1, 6-3, 7-5 victory over Devin Britton.

 

Roger now has a winning streak of 35 matches at the US Open. He started perfectly, sending down an ace as he won the first game to love on the way to a 3-0 lead, dropping just one point in the process and then wrapping up the first set in 18 minutes. In the second set, he answered a break by his opponent with a re-break, then taking a 2-0 lead in sets. The third set was more evenly contested but having again gone a break up at 4-3, Britton was again immediately overpowered by our champ, losing his serve and eventually the match.

 

Roger will play his next round against Germany's Simon Greul (ATP 65).
