Roger mastered the first step of the ATP-1000 tournament in Cincinnati with ease. He held serve throughout a 6-3, 7-5 win over José Acasuso, scoring a total of 14 aces and losing just five points when his first serve was in.

“I think it was a good match for me today,” Roger said. “I’m happy to still be playing."

Roger's serve was near to perfect today, Acasuso had a hard time getting into the match. At 4-3 in the first set Roger had only dropped three points and the first set was over after just 27 minutes. Roger then saw himself confronted with excellent serves and seized the last opportunity to break his opponent and win the second set 7-5.

Roger will now meet David Ferrer who elminated Roger's fellow countryman Stanislas Wawrinka in the first round. Roger has won all matches against Ferrer so far, dropping just one single set.
