Roger fights back in style

22.11.2009 | Tennis

It took Roger just under two hours on the opening night at the ATP World Tour Finals to defeat Fernando Verdasco 4-6, 7-5, 6-1.


Roger did not find his rhythm in the starting phase of the match. He opened with a double fault and did not win a single point in his opening game. He had trouble coping with Verdasco's sliced serves at first. But Roger committed a lot less unforced errors in the second set and he finally had break-points himself at the very end of the second set - which he made use of straight away. He then carried on the Federer-way: taking the next five games and finally the match in masterly style.


Roger will play his next match on Tuesday against Andy Murray who won his opening match against del Potro.

Roger has a great chance to be in the semis but I think he must win a set against delpo to be sure. It depends on what happens in the other matches from now on.
