A start in straight sets

31.08.2009 | Tennis

Roger got his bid for a sixth consecutive US Open title going in convincing fashion with a comfortable 6-1, 6-3, 7-5 victory over Devin Britton.


Roger now has a winning streak of 35 matches at the US Open. He started perfectly, sending down an ace as he won the first game to love on the way to a 3-0 lead, dropping just one point in the process and then wrapping up the first set in 18 minutes. In the second set, he answered a break by his opponent with a re-break, then taking a 2-0 lead in sets. The third set was more evenly contested but having again gone a break up at 4-3, Britton was again immediately overpowered by our champ, losing his serve and eventually the match.


Roger will play his next round against Germany's Simon Greul (ATP 65).

Please, what is the score now in Set 2?

Greul has strong deep shots and Federer will have to prevent any rally in order to avoid any unforced errors …

roger is slowing down and Gruel is gaining a bit of momentum
