A convincing start

08.05.2007 | Tennis

Roger began his bid for a first Rome Masters title with a 6-3 6-4 victory over Nicolas Almagro today.

 

"I think it was a good performance. Nicolas is a good player, especially on clay, and the first round is always difficult. I hope I can play even better in the second round," he commented.

 

Roger won with minimum effort, raising his game to break the Spaniard in his opening service game and then again in the first game of the second set. He clearly dominated the match – a fact that is underlined with the 66-54 statistic winners-statistic. Roger never lost his own serve and only faced one break ball, but had five of them himself.

 

Our star will enjoy a day off on Wednesday and will meet either Filippo Volandri oder Richard Gasquet in the next round.

 

 

Yesterday, Roger met Rafael Nadal in doubles for the first time. Nadal teamed with Carlos Moya and Roger played with his Davis Cup teammate Stanislas Wawrinka - Nadal/Moya took home the match 6-4, 7-6 (5) in the first round of the Rome Masters.

I've asked you not to wear that ugly design red shirt. You keep on wearing and keep on bringing bad luck. Since you lost now, I don't think you will win french Open this year and I'm not sure whether you will win french Open ever. And most importantly I '

I am a huge fan of yours as are many others that i know of. It saddens me to see your recent form slump and i sincerely hope that over the next few weeks before Roland Garros you can elevate your game to the level of play which we are all aware you are ca

Roger,
No one is asking you to win all the time, but you have got to re evaluate your game. Most of these guys beating you these days use to praise your game and remark on how invicible you are, what happened my friend?
This is unacceptable, period.

so disappointed to say anything , I even think that by the end of this 2007 then he will have lost this current position , it's a mater of fact . Being real fans , we should be critic in such a case , don't praise blindly , and Roger , why don't you try t

You are not having much luck on the clay , sorry you lost to Volandri.You know when somebody is playing "in the zone" , there is not much the opponent can do. Somehow you were not on top of your game , like against Almagro. Hope you can figure the problem
