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.

Roger, we know you were not happy with the situation yesterday. It’s terribly insensitive and disrespectful what they did to you. It’s good you voiced your thoughts after the match; it sounds like they’re going to do some about it… eventually… For right n

cruising. Go Rog, keep on attacking and nobody can beat you. What a shot you had, even you were impressed!!! We love it! You should complain about the lighting, that was rediculous.

good luck tomorrow.

I've been watching your matches and Nadal's and let me tell you this: If you play the way you are playing you will roast him especially the earlier part of your second round match. Nadal is playing lower-ranked players and he is more troubled than you are
