A clear start

30.03.2008 | Tennis

Roger has successfully taken the first step towards a first title in 2008 with a victory in straight sets over Frenchman Gaël Monfils in the Sony Ericsson Open on Saturday.


Roger beat Monfils 6-3, 6-4 in the second round of the ATP tournament — he had a first-round bye — to set up a clash with Swede Robin Söderling in the third round. "I played well on the big points," Roger said. "The times he had break points, many times I served well and stayed aggressive. All in all, I played a very good match."


Söderling prepared for the match with a win over Roger's fellow countryman, Stanislas Wawrinka, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.
