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).

Already done with lunch (it's 3:07 PM).
Having a pretty light workday today - not much to do!

Simon is broken back, and breaks back again to lead 4-3.
Gah! Get your act together Gilles!

Well yes I see that Simon is 3-2 ahead, first set. So Roger will be around midday, UK time! Work your lunch hour and leave early!.

No day off, given that Roger's match will start towards the end of the work day here - 6:30 PM or so.

No, looks like it's in progress. Simon just broke his opponent's serve and leads 3-2 (it was tied at 2-2 a few minutes ago.

I'm only following scores on the RG iPhone app for now.

So have you taken a day off for Roger?

Shatir, Well his first match was about 45 minutes earlier than scheduled! Hum I reckon then about 2pm as you say. However I think the play is suspended due to rain!

Hi Fancyfree!

Roger's match does not have a fixed start time.
If Simon and Serena finish their matches quickly, Roger's match will start early.
I gave the men's match 2 hours and Serena's match 1 hour, so that's about 1 PM UK time.
Worst case, let's say 2 PM?

Game, set and match Roger! It is scheduled to start at 3 pm not 1 pm UK time so Shatir, you will be back in time!
