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.

This was super. Just keep it up and play your best even against a # 144 or so. They can be pretty tricky as they have nothing to lose.
Hearty wishes for success going your way for tomorrow's games and GBY always.

In my little world, no one is allowe
