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.

Good job, Rogie!! Sweet, the way you're closing out your matches with aces, and you picked up 1st serve % from 50 to 57, according to the stats.

I only saw five games, but I'll watch the replay tonight.

ALLEZ, ROGERRRR!!!!
