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.

That's it. You need to think about your game. You still are not ready for the big guys. Think to hire a new coach. Maybe you need to rest until next year, I do not know, only you are able to talk about this.

Anyway, I saw how afraid was Mirka

Oh, well!!

You and Mirka have to decide if you want to achieve more greatness, or if you want to be a Baby-Daddy!!

SHE has all she ever wanted. What about you?

I can't stand seeing far inferior players beating you. Sure Benneteau had a good ma

Absolutely dissapointing... Roger should start thinking about doing something similar like Marat Safin after his match against Del Potro.

Sad ending but that's the way it goes. I only hope that Roger can pull together better in London. What a disappointment today.

I was hoping that ball was out but no luck. The teeth again. Well if Roger plays like this he can't win the tournament anyway quite frankly against all those others. It's just as well he goes out and does some more training this week.

Benneteau is ranked 49th I just saw. You are right, he is playing extremely well and I do give him credit.

Dear, you are starting to player really bad again. You used to decide a point with a winner, and now you are trying to push the ball against your opponent instead to make the winner. Stop with this asap, please. Make the winner and you are going
