Roger eases on with Air Jordan

27.08.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger raced into the second round of the US Open with a  6-3, 6-4 and 7-6(4) victory over Australia's Marinko Matosevic.

Breaks to reach a 5-3 lead in the first and a 4-3 lead in the second set were perfect to make solid progress in Roger's opening match. He did so again in the third set to reach 4-3, but this time Matosevic managed the re-break to stretch the set into a tie-breaker. But Roger made sure to book the important points and wrapped up the match with a fantastic point after just over 2 hours of play.

Roger had a special guest in his box, basketball-legend Michael Jordan. Roger's new shoes, the NIKECOURT ZOOM VAPOR AJ3, are a mix between basketball and tennis and display both the RF as well as the Air Jordan logos.

In the next round, Roger will meet another Australian, Sam Groth (ATP 104) on Friday.

Lol CJM I now have a glass of wine and I have managed to cool down somewhat. I have been trying to find a replay of the match online but have only been able to bring up some highlights. Time to move on I think. :)

Irritating isn't it CPISCEAN.
I have paid to see a Roger match before, settled to watch and no Roger, just loads of stuff of no interest! Money down the drain! I had to chase around last night to find Roger somewhere. I found him on a Swiss German channel in the end. I was lucky, but for a moment I was very irritated, I had sat up late trying to keep awake to see Doger and then I found either no tennis or different matches on the 3 normal channels I watch!

Ah Fitzy you lucky thing. I just sat down to start watching what I thought was Roger's match from today only to find TO MY HORROR that I have Bernard Tomic instead. I am so angry with the station for not showing Roger's match. To add insult to injury, I pay for this garbage. Very unimpressed. :-(

Congratulations Roger on what I hear was a great win. I am about to watch the replay to see for myself. Only 6 more wins to go. Keep it going.

I second your sentiments Macbeth. I got up especially early to see the match before I went to work - absolutely awesome! I love your outfit too - black panther - which fits perfectly, since you have all the grace and speed of that beautiful animal. You could have finished him off sooner in that third set - but we got another few games where your displayed your beautiful tennis, and who could complain about that! Love you gorgeous man - best luck for the next Aussie, xxxxxxxxxxxx
