Roger aims for second Paris victory this year

11.11.2009 | Tennis

After Roger's triumph at the French Open in June, he has returned to Paris this week in the quest for a second title in the French capital this year. André Agassi is the only player to have achieved this feat in 1999. Roger would tie the American's record of 17 Masters 1000 victories should he win the tournament.


Roger will start the BNP Parisbas Masters with his second round match today against France's Julien Benneteau (ATP 49). He could then meet Gaël Monfils or Stanislas Wawrinka in the following round. The quarters could mean a clash between Roger and Spain's Fernando Verdasco and Andy Murray or Juan Martin del Potro could be waiting in the semis.


Roger advanced to the quarter finals last year, but had to pull out of the tournament before playing the round due to a stiff back.

I'm so furious right now! It's one of Roger's very few losses that did not make me sad, but furious! How can he lose against Benneteau, even if the Frenchman probably had his best day?

I can't believe some of the comments on here.
They are hurtful ! Why does everyone seem to expect so much of Roger ? He has achieved so MUCH, and now, at this time, after so much success, he can afford to enjoy tennis and not push himself it he doesn't

i'm also afraid cause i don't see roger win any match at the world tour finals if he plays like that.... don't know if it's a lack of motivation due to the end of the season or what but you need to step it up Roger!!!

Hard to say how leaving in the first (well - second) round of the tournament amounts to aiming for victory in that same tournament :) - see article title. Have fun in Paris though Roger - it's the greatest city after all :).

On another note, if you wa
