Victory in doubles

07.10.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger won his first doubles match together with China's No. 1 Zhang Ze against Tursunov/Anderson 6-2, 6-1.

Roger and Zhang sentered with a wild card and left their opponents no chance. Next up will be the duo Dodig/Melo.

"I am looking forward to enjoying this great atmosphere again," Roger said to his chinese fans after the match.

Kemna you beat me to it! I was just about to comment on "Baby Fed"! He isn't doing particularly well. (I don't fancy him. Fognini who won earlier rocks though, well for me! lol)

Yes, Delpo and Berdych are safe to qualify. Only a miracle can prevent either of them.
I agree, I am also rooting for Stan and Raonic to qualify - it'll be their first chance in the WTF!

He's cute, but no one can replace Roger :-)
Perhaps they can arrange a exhibition match somewhere.

Hey SHATIR, I agree with you. As much as I love Roger, he too has to step up to qualify. He and we cannot count on others too lose. He has to play good too.

And to tell you the truth, I want Roger to qualify so badly, but it would be nice for Stan, Gasquet or even Raonic if they could qualify.
Not that they have to qualify and Roger not. Absolutely not. Roger has to qualify.
But in the end they all deserve to do so.

Anything about Delpo? He will qualify right???

Hey GIRLS......!!!

AAre there any girls here who thinks Dimitrov is a cutiepie???
Well, he just lost to Nishikori...
Too bad. Don't know what is wrong with him. Lately he just keeps losing.

Anyone else have an idea when we will see Roger vs Baby Fed play for the first time??

Even if Murray does play, it is very doubtful that both Raonic and Tsonga will do well in the two ATP 1000 (i.e. at least reach a Final each) in the presence of almost all the best players.

Of course, these are all just theoretical calculations. Practically speaking, Roger will play well, if not excellently, and he won't depend on others' performances to qualify.

Since Stan and Roger are both in the top 8, it doesn't matter if Stan overtakes Roger.
The way I'm calculating it is, Roger is 2 places above the qualifying cut-off (assuming Murray stays out), so it will need 3 guys OUTSIDE the top 8 to enter the cut off. If this doesn't happen, there's no way Roger can fail to qualify.
So the top 3 contenders here are Raonic, Tsonga and Haas.
