Perfect US Open start

28.08.2007 | Tennis

Roger began his quest for a fourth straight U.S. Open title with an easy straight-set win yesterday. Our star posted a 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 victory over American qualifier Scoville Jenkins (ATP 319). He needed just 92 minutes and faced only two break points - saving both - against his powerful serve.


"I thought it was a good match, tough match," said Federer. "I didn't allow my opponent many chances on my serve. I was serving well. Unfortunately for him he double faulted quite a bit on breakpoints, which obviously helped. It was a good opening match for me."


The second round opponent for our number one is another qualifier, Paul Capdeville. The Chilean outlasted Germany's Rainer Schuettler 5-7, 6-3, 6-7(4), 6-4, 6-3.

Great job Roger - good luck in your next match! Should be a great match; prime time night in NCY after Serena, how much better can it get!

All the best for moving onward through the draw!

hi Roger. Sounds like you're in fine form, but I don't understand why you even play qualifiers. They're just finger exercises for you and an end to any hopes they might have had for them. I certainly wouldn't want to play you right off the bat because
