A solid start

01.01.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger opened the new year with a solid 6-4, 6-2 win over Jarkko Nieminen in Brisbane.

Our champ took a 3-2 lead after a first break in the opening set. He was even more efficient in the second set, going up 4-0 and eventually securing the victory after 68 minutes of play.

Roger will now play Australia's Marinko Matosevic (ATP 61) - the two have never met so far.


In the doubles, Roger has also advanced to the next round alongside Nicolas Mahut, defeating Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau (HOL/ROU) 7-5, 7-6(5). They will now meet Jérémy Chardy/Grigor Dimitrov (FRA/BUL) or Colin Fleming/Ross Hutchins (GBR).

Congrats on the latest win.

Just clicked onto British eurosport and the Brisbane Cilic v Neikeshori match was on. I'm happy as they may show Federer's match too. Up until yesterday the Doha open was on.

Woop woop

Another lovely win, Roger! Congratulations and good luck in the semi tomorrow vs Jeremy and then the doubles with Nico. Much love as always to you and your dear family.

I am not surprised Matosevec celebrated as if he had won Wimbledon when he won a game. It probably felt a huge achievement taking a game off Roger in that form!
An excellent score Roger and I would imagine an excellent game from you, I look forward to seeing the highlights. I presume all magical shots Roger produced were more conventional ones! That shot he produced in the doubles took the biscuit, only Roger can do the impossible, or so it seems! I loved the reaction of the other players!

Lovely to see Roger play with confidence and flair. A great start to the New Year!

Just as well it was a quick match with such a busy day tomorrow - have only seen glimpses of the doubles but it is wonderful to see Roger moving so well and having fun on court.
