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).

Well NOT 32 UEs exactly, some of them were FORCED ERRORS.
UNFORCED ERRORS must be around 20-25..

I was analysing the full singles match (OFFICIAL from Brisbane Intl.)

Although Roger made 32 UEs (yes, i counted), he hit a lot more winners(sorry did NOT count winnners) and ALL of his shots have improved a notch, thanks to the NEW LARGER RACQUET.

And Roger is looking very fit.
AO open slam to be added soon to Roger's trophy cabinet.

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

I'm back for a simple message: BE MENTALLY STRONG, ALWAYS. It seems now-a-days that this mental strength that was your nature has influenced players like Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. I wish you will stay positive mentally & physically and prove to the world that the genius of ROGER FEDERER is still alive in body & spirit. Good luck in the New Year. I wish you and your family a happy new year 2014. We Love You - ALWAYS!!!
