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.

Rogi, although I know you will triumph in this match, please get Mary-Jo the hell out of your box (she had this long face in the only shot I saw of her). She was dissing you and bigging-up Nada earlier this year, forgetting who signed her hubby's pay-cheq
