Roger breezes through

Roger defeated Richard Gasquet 6-4, 6-4 in his opening match in Paris today, setting up a third-round clash against Radek Stepanek.

Roger showed a fresh and strong display today. He scored a break early in either set, giving him the necessary comfortable lead. Roger completely dominated on serve - hitting 7 aces and 90 percent of his first services into the field. Gasquet did not see any break-balls during the entire match.

"It is always dangerous playing against Richard here," Federer said. "I don't think there was much between us except maybe a couple of games where I played really well."

Roger will now play Radek Stepanek in the quarter finals. The two had already met last week in Basel in the quarters, where Roger dominated 6-3, 6-2. Roger leads the head-to-head 9-2.
