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).

My dearest Fed,
Thank you for your first win at US-Open 2013. Never mind wrong umpiring decisions or lines judge calling incorrectly. Donot be concerned unduly whether you win the first set, game or point. In your dark moments, donot flinch. Fight, be nonchalant and elegant, find your way back. At this level all things are more in the mind. Contd.

Hence believe in yourself that you can beat any guy in any court condition etc. Practice a lot and vanquish your opponents. May God bless you to the utmost.
Yours lovingly,

I was only lucky because of the raindelay.
If there was no raindelay, the initial match would be in Holland at 02:30 at midnight and I have to get up at 5 or 5:30 to work !!! So without the raindelay I would not be able to watch it.
If I watch the match at night, I have sometimes trouble keeping my eyes open at work during the day !!!

DEAR ROGEY - WELL DONE MAN ! GOOD START ! PLEASE WORK ON CREATING A STRONG IMAGE - Third set should have been done and dusted at 6-3 ! Give it your full force from start to finish making it clear to your challengers that you are here to dominate and win the 18th Grand Slam ! You are moving much better getting to the ball early and the first serve is coming in ! Bravo - Work on the timing ! Let the music flow ! ALL THE BEST FOR THE SECOND ROUND MATCH AND REMEMBER FROM START TO FINISH _ FULL FORCE

Sadly, no I could not, I kept waiting but the match started after 1 AM Indian time.
Also missed the highlights as I had to attend office. Only saw the glimpse of few winning points later on.
You are so lucky Kemna. Tell me have u found our IDOL is improving.
