Roger starts successfully

14.01.2009 | Tennis

Roger has started his preparation for the Australian Open well. He defeated Spaniard Carlos Moya in the AAMI Classic at Kooyong with ease 6-2, 6-3.


The match lasted just 57 minutes with Roger bouncing back from defeats to Andy Murray in Abu Dhabi and in Doha."I was a little rusty in the beginning, missed quite a few forehands, but I thought it was a good match overall," he said. "There were a few gusts of wind, which makes it not easy to play, but I felt like I was playing okay today."


Roger's next opponent will be Spanish Davis Cup hero Fernando Verdasco, who had little trouble defeating rising Croatian star Marin Cilic 6-2 7-5. Roger will be looking to add to his tally of 13 Grand Slam victories at Melbourne Park next week.

Hey Roger,
You will equal Pete's record of 14 slams at Australian Open & surpass him in this year.

Thanks champ! My birthday was yesterday. What a nice way to celebrate. A Roger classic win. Loved the top spin lob against Moya. We are hoping for a "Swiss Chocolate Final." Got my Villars ready
