Roger swept into the second round of the Roland Garros today by defeating a persistent Alejandro Falla 6-3, 6-3 and 6-4.

"Winning a match like this is a good thing. I hit a lot of balls today. Clearly hope that I will start to play better and better as the match, as the tournament goes on," Roger said.

Roger was never in danger today as he was in control right from the start. He only faced a break-point in the middle of the third set, but our champ fought it off in style to eventually book his spot in the second round.

Our champ's next opponent is either Spain's Marcel Granollers (ATP 56) or Germany's Mathias Bachinger (ATP 125).

Djokovic too strong http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5136-djokovic-zu-stark.html Roger's quest for his first claycourt title in Rome was ended today by a 4-6-, 3-6 defeat in the... Roger's quest for his first claycourt title in Rome was ended today by a 4-6-, 3-6 defeat in the final against Novak Djokovic. 

After three great matches in Italy's capital our champ was not quite able to play on the same level today, unfortunately. He did have the first opportunity for a break at 4-4 in the opening set, but did not convert it. Djokovic, unbeaten this season after Roger's victory in Dubai, showed a more efficient performance and took the following five games. Roger did manage to find his game in the second set at 0-3, but could not prevent the world number one from going all the way. 

Roland Garros , the second Grand Slam of the season, starts in Paris in 7 days time.

Roger breezes through http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5130-im-eilzugstempo-ins-halbfinale.html Our Champ showed a strong display today and defeated Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-3 in only 1 hour and 6... Our Champ showed a strong display today and defeated Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-3 in only 1 hour and 6 minutes.
Roger  has yet to be defeated on clay by Berdych. The Czech held pace up to 3-3 in both sets but was unable to challenge Roger's strong serves. Roger wrapped up the fast win upon his first - highly deserved - match point.
Roger will now meet either Rafael Nadal or Stan Wawrinka in the semis.

Roger easily defeats Anderson http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5127-klarer-sieg-ueber-anderson.html Roger continued his quest for a first title in Rome by defeating Kevin Anderson 6-3, 7-5...

Roger continued his quest for a first title in Rome by defeating Kevin Anderson 6-3, 7-5 today.

 

Apart from a short, weak phase towards the end, our champ displayed clever tactics and a strong game. He took an early lead in both sets, enabling him to keep strong-serving Anderson at bay and focus on his own serve.

 

Roger will now either meet Tomas Berdych or Fabio Fognini in the quarter-finals.

Roger through in Rome http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5124-roger-in-rom-eine-runde-weiter.html Our Champ convincingly won his first round in Rome today, defeating Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas... Our Champ convincingly won his first round in Rome today, defeating Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas 7-6(3), 6-4. 

It was clear right in the opening set that Roger was more focused than in Madrid last week. Cuevas did manage to put up a fight, but our champ clearly prevailed in the tie-break to take the first set. He then put on more pressure in the second, converting his fourth break-ball to take a 3-2 lead. Shortly afterwards he already had a first match-ball which he did not hesitate to make use of. 

In the round of sixteen Roger will play South Africa's Kevin Anderson (ATP 16) on Thursday.

This week Roger is in Italy for the Masters 1000 tournament in Rome. Our triple finalist will start against the winner of the match between Italy's Paolo Lorenzi (ATP 95) and Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas (ATP 24).
In the round of the last sixteen, he could cross the path of South Africa's Kevin Andreson (ATP 17). Tomas Berdych (ATP 7) or Grigor Dimitrov (ATP 11) are then likely opponents in the quarter-finals.
And then, in theory, a semi-final against Rafael Nadal (ATP 4) is possible.

Roger loses 2nd round match http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5118-roger-in-der-zweiten-runde-ausgeschieden.html Roger suffered an incredibly close defeat in the secound round of the Mutua Open in Madrid today....
The match was a thriller all the way through to the tie-break of the third set as Kyrgios converted his matchball to 14-12. Before that, Roger had simply not displayed a constant enough performance to be able to dominate the talented Aussie. Our champ had to recover from a break right in the beginning of the match - but was able to level again at 5-5. He then secured an early break in set number two but gave away the advantage later on.

The early out will not have any consequences regarding Roger's ranking as he had not taken part in Madrid last year when his twin boys were born.]]>
