Roger with a good start

28.08.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger won his first round at the US Open against Grega Zemlja (ATP 62) 6-3, 6-2 and 7-5. 

Roger was in very good shape, winning the match in 1 hour 33 minutes. The stats for his first round are certainly impressive: 85% of points won on his first serve, 12 aces, backed up by 35 clean winners, the last of them a forehand volley to wrap it up.

The two players split the first six games to begin the match, before Roger won three in a row to take the first set, 6-3. He continued that success in the second set, winning 6-2 before taking the match with a 7-5 victory in the third set.

Roger will now play Argentina's Carlos Berlocq (ATP 48).

I am pleased you have gone back to your old racquet for now Roger. You may still switch to the black one in the future, fully trained with and tweaked and tuned to peRFection. Meanwhile, I think the old racquet looks and plays as a part of you for now and you have full confidence in it and therefore yourself! The new racquet has to be one an extension of you before you fully trust it in the heat of a competition. Good luck in the next round. I am hoping it will be another evening match for me!

A practise at the end of a match seems a very good plan to me. He and his team have the match and problem areas fresh in their minds to work on. He is warmed up already, so it makes a lot of sense. I loved his outfit. Shorts were lovely! Always loved him in that shade of blue. As for those shoes, an interesting colour, loved them Hope to see plenty more of the whole outfit and with it completed with the trophy!

Hi I have just watched again while a bit more awake. It was such a brief blip. Started with a double fault, then I think he just got frustrated, possibly because of the lack of rhythm throughout the match, and rushed his shots, he won back to deuce a couple of times, but then Zemlja put in a good shot just at the right time, then Roger, still slightly in that mode could not break service back. At 5:5 Roger was back as his normal efficient self and finished off cleanly.
