A victory in straight sets to start off with

25.05.2009 | Tennis

Roger swept into the second round of the French Open today by defeating Spain's Alberto Martin 6-4, 6-3, 6-2.

 

"I started a little slowly," he said afterwards. "He plays very far behind the baseline so I had to make adjustments. Then I started to serve well. That allowed me to play more freely and I was able to dominate."

 

It was a bit of a rough start for Roger when he was broken in his first serve but he later levelled to 2-2. Roger then went on to break Martin for a second time in the 10th game to take the set. From then on our champ was clearly in control, dominating during his serve and breaking his opponent regularly.

 

Roger eased to victory in an hour and 43 minutes, setting up a second-round meeting with either José Acasuso or Santiago Ventura.

Congrats, Champ! I was so impressed with how you adjusted and fought back from two breaks down in the 3rd. Very impressive! Nice strong tie-break to finish!

Did everyone see how happy beautiful Mirka was at the end?

I'm hoping to catch the match

Great.
Its a good test.
Two days off evidently is bad for you. Generally I think is bad for players, they lost rhytm and focus.
Matz Wilander was right, match was close.
But you won.
You dont need to be great just better than your rivals, than in s

The Hewitt vs Nadal match should be good. Hewitt only made 7 unforced errors in his last match! He is doing really well here in RG. Wouldn't that be something if he beat the man in pink?
