Roger win first match in Hamburg

17.07.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger won his first match in Hamburg today, defeating Germany's Daniel Brands (ATP 58) 3-6, 6-3 and 6-2.

 

It was Roger' first match with a larger racket (his Wilson racket now has 632cm2, previously it was 581). His serve was very strong, especially in the second set - where Roger won four out of five games to love. Our champ broke once in the second set and twice in the third to reach the third round in Hamburg, where he will meet Czech Jan Hajek.

I know FANCYFREE, that article could have been written before the game even! I could not watch the match ( have now found a channel for tomorrow, Yeah!) but I hardly call the score line "a struggle". He had one bad game in the whole match to lose the first set, that is all and it is regarded as a struggle. Second and third sets were decisive enough. Not even a mention that he was "struggling" to get used to a new racquet which is vastly different in size to anything else he has played with.
