Roger opened his 2010 season in Abu Dhabi today. He was beaten in three sets by Swede Robin Söderling (ATP 8) at the high-profile exhibition tournament: 7-6(6), 6-7(1), 2-6.


Roger commented: "Obviously it's hard to start playing against him but I had fun." He will be playing his first ATP tournament next week in Doha.


This week, Roger also announced that he will skip Switzerland’s Davis Cup first round in Spain in March.

Glad to see you back again, even losing. Do wish you wouldn't bail out on the Swiss DC team, though.
