Next up: round four

29.03.2010 | Tennis

Roger defeated France's Florent Serra (ATP 61) in a pair of tiebreaks today: 7-6(2), 7-6(3).

 

Roger displayed some awesome tennis, starting the match well as he raced to a 5-2 lead. But he had to accept a break by his opponent, who managed to level the set at 5-5. As the set went into the tie-break, Roger regained the momentum and spared two points to close it by 7 points to 2. The second set brought an early break in the third game for our maestro, who then consolidated the lead with a double break for 4-1. Serra once again broke Roger to close in the gap, and successfully levelled the set once again at 5-5 with consecutive service breaks. Roger, surprised by the Frenchman's tenacity, failed to grab another break and looked for closure in the tie-break, which progressed as expected, giving Roger a mini-break lead at 3-1. With a lead, he closed the 7-6(2), 7-6(3) match in one hour and 32 minutes of play.

 

Next up is the winner of the match between Tomas Berdych and Horacio Zeballos.

Congratulations on your win against Serra. Too bad you weren't able to close out the match earlier, maybe the wind played a part or a lapse in concentration plus Serra's fine returns on serve.
All in all, great match, really enjoyed those exquisite winne
