Roger starts with a victory

15.03.2010 | Tennis

Roger has returned onto the Tour with a victory, defeating Romania's Victor Hanescu 6-3, 6-7(5), 6-1 in the second round of the Indian Wells ATP tournament on Sunday.

 

Roger looked in great shape in his first appearance on the Tour after his Australian Open triumph. Bidding for a record fourth title at Indian Wells, our champ started with a break in the second game before winning the opening set in just 30 minutes. However, he was surprisingly broken in the sixth game of the second when the Romanian struck a backhand return winner down the line. Although Roger fought back to 6-6, he fell behind 0-3 in the tiebreak, which Hansecu won 7-5 to level the match. Roger reacted right away, breaking again in the second and sixth games to seal victory.

 

Round 3 will bring a meeting with Marcos Baghdatis who has shown a strong year so far (title in Sydney, tight semi-final against Djokovic in Dubai). Roger has won all 6 matches against him so far.
