Federer-Express with a bumpy start

29.05.2008 | Tennis

It took Roger the first set to get going today, but he then left no doubts against Spanish claycourter Albert Montañes: 6-7(5), 6-1, 6-0, 6-4.


After a rain delay at 5-5 Roger did not manage to win the tie-break, but the Federer-Express started rolling right after that, bringing home the final three sets with ease. "The weather conditions were not easy," he said. "After (the delay), I felt a bit better, more relaxed."


He next takes on Croatia's Mario Ancic (ATP 46), the last man to beat him at Wimbledon in 2002. Roger leads the head-to-head 4-1.
