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.
