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).

Keep focused, healthy, determined and aggressive Roger and you will have no problem! I love Roger when he plays aggressive! You certainly look the RF we are accustomed to and love, curls and the old racquet! It is wonderful to see the curls dancing around yet again! Please wear those shoes again, a very interesting colour, it is not a harsh red, I love it and we can watch your feet in action. Good luck Roger, hope the game allows you to get into a rhythm this time! Go on, allezzz!

SEETHARAM,
Some media also called him GOAT when he won USO 2010.. People know who the real GOAT is.. Look at Roger's consistency and innumerable achievements... Its just not the GS count alone... Many of his records stand the test of time..
That Toni is a mobster in tennis who robbed Roger of his victories during his prime by coaching his nephew on court (Roger complained to the umpire many times) like Rome 2006 final, Wimby 2008 final... IMO, Roger's class is way above that heavy-weight boxer.

Ramcharan I agree with you our champ should somehow stop this guy if they meet otherwise the tennis people will call him the new GOAT A guy who moonballs,who takes advantage of single handed backhand who grunts before hitting every shot who makes tennis match look like a boxing match can not be a GOAT It does not set a right example for future generations and I can't stand the sight of his uncle TN standing and cheering when his nephew is about to win the championship ,

Well done, Roger, for your first match. Keep going this way! Best of luck for your second round.
May your back hold up during this tournament.
All my love,
Keiko
