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).

I met with CPiscean at the Brisbane Int yesterday. It was great to meet a fellow rf.com fan from here. She along with some friends have given the Red Envelope and a soft toy koala to Roger at a training session a couple of days ago. She showed me a super special photo of Roger with the RE and Koala. If you sent Roger a message for the Brisbane RE he now has it!

@RF4World thank you very much for the great analysis of Roger's singles match last night. I agree with you he seemed the most at ease to date with his new 98 racquet. It will be interesting to see how he goes with his doubles match today.

There are only 6 days left before Roger's Gala Charity Exhibition. Please send your messages congratulating Roger on the 10th Anniversary of his Foundation to...
