Back in action - and winning

17.10.2007 | Tennis

Roger claimed a swift victory over Robby Ginepri 7-6(2), 6-4 in his first match of the Madrid Masters 2007.

"I took a rest so I could be 100 percent here, and now I'm fresh and eager to play here again," he said before the match. After a fairly long break since his fourth US Open title in September, Roger showed a few weaknesses in his game, but remained a long way ahead of his 72-ranked rival. "I was struggling in the beginning a little bit, but I served well to get out of trouble. I'm happy I won this first match, for me it was a big win today." Roger had to play two tiebreakers against Ginepri in the seventh game of the first set, but thanks to an ace and a service point he dominated the situation. In the second set, our star breezily went 4-2 ahead and served 10 aces after breaking the American's service in the eighth game.

Roger will next play the winner between Argentina's Agustin Calleri and Guillermo Canas on Wednesday.

Am keeping for fingers and toes crossed for the match against Canas later today. You must get that monkey off your back. I cannot believe how well you played the first match back. You obviously needed a good rest and got one. Let's hope Murray can put

Dear Roger,

I think this time you know how to TAME a tough and tricky opponent as CANAS. The 2 defeats will improve your GUTS/tactic/mental/game plan. We used to learn more in failure than in victory. This is continuous improvement or the philosophy KA

Congratulations on this win - best of luck with Canas :-)

Love forever,
