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.

regardless of winning or losing the match, roger will have a lot to think about. let's hope he will draw the right conclusions.

As great as Federer is -- one match at a time. He still has to win this and he should. It is a reasonably fair draw till semis. After that it is anybody's match.

Let us all remember that he had to play on really tough match in the last two grand slams before making it to the finals, this might be the case. Remember the US open and the five setter against Andreev, he came back from that, and at the Austrialian agai
