Roger eases into round two

25.05.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger easily reached the secound round of the French Open after a 6-2, 6-4, 6-2 win over Lukas Lacko.

"I wasn't nervous actually going into the match. It's more just like those hints of fear, maybe yesterday, maybe this morning at one point, just for like five seconds, `Oh, I really hope I don't have to pack my bags today,' that kind of feeling," Roger commented.

Roger will meet a qualifyer in the next round, either Gastao Elias (ATP 178) or Diego Sebastian Schwartzman (ATP 109).

With you all the way with toasting Roger, however my choice of poison is white rather than red. :-)

Here's an interesting question for Shatir, when was the last time that both Williams sisters lost in the second round on the same day at a Grand Slam? The way Serena is playing she will be joining Venus.

A glass of wine sounds great Paddy. In the meantime Serena is about to lose the first set!

CPiscean...haha...ours is a mixed marriage when watching the rugby...go the All Blacks...lol

Anyhow on the serious issue tonight...here's toasting Roger (glass of red in hand) and wishing him an easy win.

Paddy, I was listening to the radio tonight and they were doing the pre-game warm up. The DJ was talking about the number of "mixed marriages". I must say I was taken aback..... and then I realised he was talking about the fan couples coming in with one member in a Qld jersey and the other in a NSW one.

Stepanek is through against Youzhny.

Young Anna has come through but excellent play from both players.
Cpi...married a banana bender...have no choice...don't care but prefer a happy husband

Yep, Venus is out.
Meanwhile, Youzhny looks on his way out - if Stepanek manages to serve out the match. Which could mean Roger might face him in round 4.
