Roger breezes into the next round

16.08.2007 | Tennis

Roger made a smooth start to his Cincinnati Masters title bid by beating Frenchman Julien Benneteau 6-3 6-3. With this victory, he has already advanced one round further than a year ago.


An early break put Roger, looking for his 50th career title, on his way and after taking the first set, he broke in the seventh and ninth games of the second to clinch victory. He will next play Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus, who beat Argentine Juan Ignacio Chela 6-7 6-4 6-2, in the third round.


"It gives you a fright when you see some people retiring and others, like Djokovic, who had the tournament of his life last week, losing quite comfortably," Roger said in a courtside interview. "It puts extra pressure on you so I'm happy I am the one to survive." Rafael Nadal was forced to retire on Wednesday.
