Roger battles into next round

28.05.2009 | Tennis

Roger survived a bumpy ride today to advance to the third round of the French Open. He defeated José Acasuso 7-6(8), 5-7, 7-6(2) and 6-2.

 

"It was really tough," Roger said. "The first three sets could have gone either way." Roger had to deal with some rather tough moments, not making it easy for himself in the first set, but eventually taking it to a tiebreak where he saved four set points and finally took the set with a dropshot. Our champ was even 5-1 down in the third set but fought back in great manner, saving a set point at 5-2, taking five games in a row and snatching the tie-break in the end. This broke the Argentinian's resistance and Roger scored a neat 6-2 in the final set to win the match.

 

Next up is France's Paul-Henri Mathieu or Spain's Pablo Andujar on Saturday.

I can imagine that Roger's first serve percentage is way down this match due to the wind - only 59%. Monday's conditions will likely be quite different again. Tsonga looking very strong in his last match. Djok out. Who knows what will happen next? Lo

Haas and Roger have never met on clay before. Should be interesting. Tommy has a beautiful backhand too. Quite handsome so will be a nice match ;-)
