A clear start

29.05.2007 | Tennis

Roger was able to finish his match against Michael Russell (ATP 68) today after play was suspended because of rain yesterday. He wrapped up a straight-sets first-round win over the American: 6-4, 6-2, 6-4.  


Resuming second up on a sun-kissed Philippe Chatrier today, Roger - aiming for a first title at Roland Garros - was in just as clinical mood. And he was happy with the way he played in his opening match this year. “I was in a comfortable position going into today, so that was a good situation to be in,” he said.


“I played okay I thought. I served well. I didn't get much chance on his serve, and from the baseline I played well when I had to. So it was a good opening match for me.”


Roger will now face Frenchman Thierry Ascione (ATP 168) in the second round.

You played superb on the first 2 sets. You got CARELESS on the 3rd and had to sweat a little for the victory. The conditions on the court seemed pretty bad and I’m sure it became increasingly difficult to play. So that’s okay champ, CONGRATULAT

just to let the fans know roger has just won against Ascione, 6-1 6-2 7-6, he should have finished it of sooner but got broken but playing in that weather i don't blame him it was horrible for them both raining, cold and very slippery which could have bee
