Roger cruises into round 3

30.05.2007 | Tennis

Roger celebrated a clear victory over Frenchman Thierry Ascione in the evening of the second round at the French Open today.

 

He prevailed 6-1, 6-2, 7-6 (10-8) in the day's last game on Suzanne Lenglen court. Our champ broke Ascione (ATP 168) twice in the first set, in the second and fourth games, and twice again early in the second set to establish a firm grip on the contest with just 48 minutes played.

 

The third set, which lasted more than an hour, was not quite as straightforward for Roger, who was broken when serving at 5-4 up, having squandered two match points in that game.

 

Our star will play Italy's Potito Starace in the third round.

Congratulations, Roger!!!!!!!!
The only thing I didn't like was that a lot of kids were desperately asking for an autogragh and you did not sign one. I thought you could have been more polite. Anyway take care and best wishes!!!!!

Maybe it's wishful thinking so early in the tournament, but perhaps the French Open 2007 will be a tournament you'll win in straight sets like the Australian...??? :-)

Whatever, wish you all the best for the other matches.
