Roger wins first match

09.10.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has booked a spot in the round of the last 16 in Shanghai after a 6-4, 6-3-victory over Andreas Seppi.

 

Roger only encountered a few problems in the opening phase of the match when he was  broken by Seppi to fall back 2-3. But Roger immediately responded, secured a re-break and went on to win the first set without any further difficulties. He opened the second set in style, breaking his opponent to jump to a 2-0 lead and then take home the match after 74 minutes of play.

Next up is Gaël Monfils (ATP 42) in the round of the last 16. Roger leads the head-to-head 6-1.

Come on Rogi. Some of the rust has been knocked off. Keep up the good work.
You will have to work for this one, but should be no problem to one as talented as you. The experience will be a big step to getting match fit again.

It seems Haas has withdrawn from his match against Del Potro.
So Roger's match should be up next?

Match delay: Roger is not up before 3:15pm local time.

Good luck Roger!!!! We are on your side!!!

19 winners to 29 unforced errors ratio is poor for a 2 set match.
And against an opponent who does NOT hit the ball as fast and heavy as Delpo, Nole, Berdych is NOT good.

It will be interesting to how Roger's game improves against Monfils who plays similar to Robredo.
Hope Roger does NOT SELF DESTRUCT.
