Finally: Roland Garros

26.05.2007 | Tennis

Roger will face American Michael Russell (ATP 71) in the first round of the French Open.


"I feel good," Roger said. "I had a few days off after my win in Hamburg. Obviously the feeling now is better than two weeks ago." Roger lost to Nadal in last year's final. Since then, he has won Wimbledon, the U.S. Open and the Australian Open. By winning the French, he would complete a career Grand Slam and a non-calendar Grand Slam.


"I've been working a long time for my French Open goal," he said. "My confidence is back where it was."


Sould Roger proceed, his opponents in the second round would be either local Thierry Ascione or a qualifier. Later he could face Michail Youzhni (RUS/13) and a Swiss quarter final between Roger and Stanislas Wawrinka ist potentially possible even further into the tournament.
