Roger with perfect start

14.01.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger won his first match of the 2014 Australian Open with ease, defeating Australia's James Duckworth 6-4, 6-4 and 6-2.

 

Roger also broke another Grand Slam record by playing his 57th consecutive major tournament, surpassing the Open Era record of 56 he had shared with South African Wayne Ferreira.

With his new coach Stefan Edberg in the stands for the first time, Roger said "It's in a way a dream come true for me. I used to watch his matches and get inspired to play this great game, so it's very special."

As temperates rose to over 40 degrees, Roger was always clearly in charge of the match and was able to wrap up the victory after 1:44h of play. Next up is Blaz Kavcic (ATP 99) against whom Roger has never played before.

DEAR FRIENDS,

RIGHT AND WRONG IS A MATTER OF OPINION SOMETIMES, BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO REMEMBER WHO OUR FRIENDS ARE.
DEAR ***DUTCHLADY, YOU ARE ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED HERE - THIS IS A YOUNGER GENERATION - OF COURSE THEY/WE MUST STILL BEHAVE - YOU MUST BE FEELING UNHAPPY AND PERHAPS IN A BAD MOOD.
YOUNG PEOPLE WILL FROLIC BUT I MUST SAY THEY'RE QUITE RESPONSIBLE HOWEVER THOSE WHO BEHAVE IRRSESPONSIBLY WILL BE IRRESPONSIBLE.
HULI STOOD UP FOR YOU - LET'S SAY FANS BELONG HERE.
