Roger in round three

12.08.2009 | Tennis

Roger defeated Canadian outsider Frederic Niemeyer to advance 7-6 (3), 6-4 in the second round of the ATP Montreal Masters.


"I'm very happy with my game. I reacted well in my first match back," Roger commented. "I played the big points well. I'm very pleased. I'm happy to be back after the long break. We played at a very high level. Frederic has a big serve and is tough."


Our number one had a bit of adjusting to do. As the first set failed to produce a break, Roger then took the opener in a tie-break 7-3. Niemeyer continued to battle in the second until Roger finally wore down the Canadian, earning the only break of the match to go up 4-3 before wrapping it up after 86 minutes.


Next up is either fellow countryman Stanislas Wawrinka (ATP 22) or Andrej Golubew (ATP 66).

they wrote "Félicitations Roger - Mirka" with 2 little hearts.
I hope Dame Mirka was watching TV!

He seems to have lost concentration now. Maybe this won't be his set. Hope he picks up again. Lots of balls into the net lately.

thanks for the link - urrgggggg Roger broken early in the second set. I didn't get to see when he won the first set but he seems to be playing well but Stan is a good player too.

Very nice gesture from the organisators here on round 3 to congratulate you and Mirka (with panels lifted by the public).

I was afraid you could loose concentration, but no, you even did the break going into 5/3 and then won the 1st set!
