A promising start

11.08.2008 | Tennis

Top seed Roger opened his Olympic campaign with a straightforward 6-4, 6-2 win over Russia's Dmitry Tursunov today. He converted his first break point at 1-1 in the first set and broke twice in the second to complete an easy victory in one hour and five minutes.

 

"Sometimes it plays a trick in your mind where you think maybe you're not playing that well, but it's actually not the case," Roger said, clearly relieved to be up and running at the tournament after a difficult five weeks. "I played well, hit some great winners, got some good balls back. I was playing very solid."

 

Roger's next opponent will be Rafael Arevalo of El Salvador, the 447th- ranked player in the world.
