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.

Well done, Roger. That's the way to do it with one match at a time even if the first one took two days to complete. You are the champ...

Yes, it was a clear star, but you must maintain the confidence in yourself...
Later, step by step, without losing the concentration in each match.
Calm, the first matches are very dangerous.
The journalists already began to say that you are the first f
