Roger eases through

25.06.2007 | Tennis

Roger made a successful start to his bid for a fifth straight Wimbledon title today. He cruised through the match against Russia's Gabashvili to take a 6-3 6-2 6-4 victory in just 92 minutes.

 

The start of Roger's favourite tournament, Wimbledon, had to be delayed slightly as the weather was rather cool and wet today. Roger appeared on Centre Court in style wearing a white jacket with gold crest on the breast pocket and retro long white trousers.

Our star was never troubled by the 85th-ranked Gabashvili, who was making his Wimbledon debut and had won only one previous grass-court match. Roger finished with 33 winners and 13 unforced errors. He broke the Russian four times and saved the only break point against him. Lynette, Roger's mother, sat in the Royal Box, while Mirka was joined by Italian motorcycling star Valentino Rossi in his supporters' section.

Rogers game against Del Porto has been suspended to next day (Thursday) because of rain. He is leading 6-2, 7-5, 2-0. Hopefully he can finish this one quick & start focusing on the next game (most possibly against Safin). That should be a more challenging
