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).

There is no need to miss Brisbane matches - http://www.drakulastream.eu and although Roger's match isn't there yet, just wait, it will be eventually.

Wasn't able to watch the match - but thanks CPISCEAN for the link so I could watch that incredible shot - no matter what happens, Rog always gives us those magical Federistic shots you get from no-one else!

Congratulations to Federer/Mahut on the win - another hard-fought match. Good luck Rog on your next singles match, love xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I watched Roger's doubles match today and there is an accidental shot that Roger hit off the top of the frame that bounced on the opponent's side of the net and because it had soooo much spin on it, Chardy was not able to touch the ball before it bounced back onto Roger's side of the net. It was just amazing!!!

(The point starts at the 23 second mark and Roger's shot is at the 32 second mark. Take a look, it is pretty special)

a very happy new year !!! Can't you watch through Streamhunter?
They are showing the men's matches from yesterday, not before. Even Roger's doubles. He won today against Dimi and Chardy. Did have to get up at 6 this morning, but it was worth it.
BUT..... seeing Roger playing doubles is as nervous as his singles matches....
I could barely watch the super TB.

Talk to you later....
