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 remember at IW this year when Berlocq complained that Murray is delaying between points (something like that), Murray retorted about his loud grunting throughout the match... Later one of the media persons asked Nadal to comment on that issue... LOL... If he ever grunted... He said "I don't know what you're talking, I don't understand the question..."

I guess so. And he's trying hard to imitate Sharapova too with that loud noise he makes..

Good question CJM!

I'm loving this...i just wish Nadal yells like this too....Berlocq is in stress mode.

Awesome shots by Roger.

Is Berlocq trying to imitate Rafa with his taped knee?

Thanks FANCYFREE . I am now watching but everything was showing the same matches. Then they deemed it more important to show Murray walking around. Unbelievable!
