French Open draw

23.05.2008 | Tennis

The French Open draw this morning revealed a challenging start for Roger. His first opponent is American Sam Querrey (ATP 41) who knocked out Carlos Moya, Andreas Seppi and Richard Gasquetat at the Monte Carlo Masters in April. Roger clearly won the first encounter with the 20 year-old so far (Miami 2007, 6-4, 6-3).

 

Our champ could meet Albert Montanes (ESP) or Kristof Vliegen (BEL) in the second round, before Mario Ancic (CRO) or - just like in the semi-final in Hamburg - Andreas Seppi (ITA/31) in the third. Roger could then face Argentinian claycourter Juan Monaco in the fourth round before a possible quarter-final match-up with compatriot Stanilas Wawrinka, the ninth seed, or French eighth seed Richard Gasquet.

 

Numbers two and three of the world ranking, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, are not in Roger's half of the draw and could play each other in the semi-final.

Hey Guys,

It really does not matter where Roger plays, I'm more concerned about how well he plays. Remember at last year's US Open, It wasn't until later on in the tournament that he started playing on Ashe? For his first two or three matches, he pla

Solid performance. Querry would be a dangerous opponent on any other surface. The clay exposed his inability to change direction.

It could have been more of a test if Querry's first serve was firing on all cyliners.

The shot he played when he tho

Congratulations on your win today against the American Roger!!
Roger, you need to stop Nadal from winning 4 in a row, just like he tried to stop you at Wimbledon! Stay focused, do not think about the draw, one match at a time!
