Roger Federer recorded his career's 952th match win, 266th win at a grand slam & 59th win at Roland Garros (equalling him with Rafa Nadal as the most number of wins at Roland Garros) as he eased past Lukas Lacko 6-2, 6-4, 6-2 to reach the 2nd round of French Open, 2014 in 1 hour & 24 minutes.

Roland Garros is Federer's 58th successive grand slam (overall 60th slam), only Fabrice Santoro (70 slams) & Andre Agassi (61 slams) have played more grand slams than the 32 year old Roger Federer.

 

 

Lukas Lacko was playing in his first clay court tournament after Roland Garros, 2013. Lacko's last match at a clay court event was in Prague in May, 2011, since then, he has lost 10 successive matches on clay. Clearly, Federer was the hot favorite for the match & he dominated Lacko throughout the match.

 

1st Set

 

 

Mirka Federer, his twins daughters (Myla Rose & Charlene Riva) along with his coach Severin Luthi were present to cheer for Roger Federer.

Federer looked in good touch & started confidently & broke Lacko's service in the 5th & 7th game as he wrapped up the 1st set 6-2 in just 24 minutes.

 

 

Here are the 1st set stats ----

Federer's 1st serve % was 70% for the set & he converted both of his break points.

 

 

2nd set

 

 

Federer broke Lacko's service in the 3rd game & that one break of service was enough as Federer served out the set in the 10th game winning the 2nd set 6-4 in just 34 minutes.

 

 

Here are the 2nd set stats -----

3rd Set

 

 

The Swiss maestro broke Lacko's serve in the opening game of the 3rd set after Lacko double faulted. Federer got the double break in the 5th game to get to a 4-1 lead.

 

 

Lukas Lacko saved 1 match point (break point) on his service in the 7th game but Federer served out the match in the 8th game winning the 3rd set 6-2 in just 26 minutes.

Although the sky was not blue, at least it was dry in Paris for Roger Federer's first match in his 2014 Roland Garros campaign.

It was particularly good to see Mirka there with Charlene and Myla. In an interview played on TV before the match Roger spoke of his family and said that things were much better and the boys were now putting on weight. At least the anxieties over the early arrival of the twins are behind them now.

The atmosphere around the court, and indeed on court appeared to be very relaxed, helped somewhat by the deep, honeyed tones of the French chair umpire, Kader Nouni.

Roger calmly set about the task in hand and without too much pressure from Lukas Lacko was able to find his range under match conditions. He came to the net a fair bit and served well, with a total of 7 aces in the course of the match.

There were some miss hits and sometimes I felt it was because he was maybe a bit too laid back. Thankfully this did not adversely affect the outcome of the match. There were no pinch points or edge of the seat moments.

Stan Wawrinka was there watching too. He tweeted a selfie during the match ....
Enjoying the match of the Boss @rogerfederer @rolandgarros !!

All in all a good, calm, untaxing start to Roland Garros for Roger Federer. He was pleased as were his fans :)

During the match the comms talked about the different sound the ball makes as it strikes Roger's racquet, comparing it to his previous one. The new one making more of a "ping" sound sometimes. In fact you can pick that out on the Highlights package above by comparing it to the sound of the ball hitting Lacko's racquet. :)

Federer's presser ----

 

10401915_720397488003869_833012135014726

 

 

 

 

Q.  Tennis alone doesn't give you happiness, but how much happier are you today with your game and with your life?
    

 

ROGER FEDERER:  I mean, everything is great.  I'm happy I got off to a good start for the tournament here in Paris.  There's always that little bit of feeling that if you don't feel well, if the opponent plays great, whatever happens so you could lose early.
    So I was happy seeing, getting early signs out of the match that I was actually playing well and I was going to get my chances I was looking for.
    I'm very pleased with the outcome of the match, you know, very satisfied.
    My personal life, as we know, it's all great, so I'm happy the family is here.

    Q.  You get to play one of two qualifiers next.  I was wondering if you knew much about them, Schwartzman or Elias.  If you don't know much about them, how would you prepare for a match like that?

 

    ROGER FEDERER:  Yeah, I don't know Schwartzman, to be honest, and I know Gastao Elias better.  I have practiced with him in the past, and when he was just sort of coming up, you know, when he was still maybe 17 I was practicing in a few days in a row in Monaco, I think, one time and again maybe in Miami.  I know him quite well.  We always have a chat.  So it will be fun playing against him, clearly.

    Q.  You have been working with Edberg.  Can you talk about your work with him and how is it progressing and whether you have done anything special for this tournament.

 

    ROGER FEDERER:  Well, I mean, I think for me it was more the last few months getting back in shape, becoming healthy again, 100%, and then solidifying all of that, really.  I think Stefan comes in the most, you know, with little hints, little advice here and there, and just observing what is going on, and just sort of staying in touch with him.

 

    If I have any questions, I can always ask him.  It's really nice for me to have him as such an inspirational person, you know, in my team.  He was very happy with what he saw today, so that makes me happy, too.

    Q.  You played against Slovak opponent.  Your wife has Slovak background.  Do you speak any Slovak?  We know your great language skills.

 

    ROGER FEDERER:  Yeah, but not on that one (laughter). For some reason, I don't understand a word when she speaks.  And it's been, what, 15 years now I have been with her almost?  It's such a hard language that    I don't know.  At least my daughters understand it, and my wife speaks it and all that, so that's enough.  It's good for them.
    No, clearly I have never been to Slovakia, would like to go one day, and sure, we had to smile when we saw the draw that I was going to playing against Lacko today.

Federer about Nadal, the eight-time champion is still the favorite??
 
“I think he’s back on where he wants to be,” Federer said. “He’s played his matches he needs to play. He’s even won one of the Masters 1000 at home in Madrid for him. So I think he probably is where he wants to be, in my opinion.”
 
As for Novak Djokovic being tapped as the favorite?
 
“Not for me, but maybe for you,” Federer said. “And three weeks ago he couldn’t play tennis anymore, I remember that too. When he was injured, oh, my God, you know. Things are looking so terrible. Now everything is great. … It doesn’t go week by week. I don’t know who’s talking all the time, but Rafa is the favorite, and then Novak, and then the rest. It’s very clear.
 
“But it doesn’t matter who is the favorite or not. We will see in a few weeks.”

When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a Roger Federer to smile.

Thanks Kishore :)
