Roger through in Basel

21.10.2008 | Tennis

Roger won his first round in Basel today. He endured a tricky 6-3 6-7 (6) 6-3 win over Bobby Reynolds to reach the second round at the Swiss Indoors.

 

"I didn't really have so much time to get used to the conditions," Roger said after the match. "I was only able to hit here for two hours in practice. He served very well and it the corners, it was tough to read."

 

Our two-time defending champion took the first set but was taken to a tie-break in a tight second. He clawed his way back from 5-1 down before the American world number 86 clinched it 8-6 to force the decider, but Roger came through.

***Tilou - Glad I brought a smile to your face.

Hope Roger plays better against Bolelli tomorrow - I think it will be the first meeting. Whenever Roger under performs in a match, he plays much better in the next match.

Have a lovely night!

***brian999666*** I agree with you about ***boting.

I was actually letting ***aggiedoodle*** know that Roger had played and beat Jarkko several times before, but boting took a different spin on my post. So, today, on October 23, 2008 (since apparently

Well done, Roger. You hung on by your fingernails, but won nevertheless. Apparently you learn fast and well from the lesson Niemenen supposedly taught you in this match, according to one of your "fans".

It's Bolelli in the next round. Good luck and God
