Roger starts strong

13.05.2009 | Tennis

Roger began his final warmup for Roland Garros with a convincing 6-1, 7-5 victory over Robin Söderling in his first match in Madrid.

 

"It's about playing well and getting ready for Paris," Roger said. "It's good to get the first match."

 

Our champ delivered a first set of near perfection, easing his way through in just 20 minutes. It got a bit tougher in the second set, when his opponent took a 4-2 lead. But once again, a perfect reaction and two breaks followed and Roger made everything clear in two sets.

 

Roger will meet either James Blake or Ivo Karlovic in the next round.

Thank you very much. You gave us an awesome tennis show today. It's really a plaesure to see those magic shots. It's become a regular thing to serve an ace to close out the match for you . Is it your new strategy?

Roger, one more little thing off court. You absolutely need a good rest, and a fresh mind. Building up a good role model for your coming child, esp. surfing the web too long is no good for your eyes and minds.

Your dark circle continues growing up
