Roger starts on Monday

23.05.2009 | Tennis

Roger's bid to win his first French Open championship - and tie Pete Sampras with a record 14th major singles title - will start on Monday against Alberto Martin of Spain (ATP 97). The two have met once before in Monaco in 2006, where Roger clearly defeated Martin 6-0, 6-1.


Roger and Novak Djokovic are lined up to meet in the semifinals, before that a clash with James Blake in the round of the last 16 and Andy Roddick in the quarter finals are possible.

It's great to hear Roger finished the match in the usual GS 1st round fashion - giving his opponent 100 minutes in time on court, doing enough to beat the guy and playing some beautiful shots. I had to go out and so missed the match,
