September 2, 2017 -- Flushing Meadows, NYC
Roger was all business in his Round of 32 match against Feliciano Lopez. Looking sharp and healthy, Roger played aggressively and looked strong after battling through his first two rounds in five sets. The 3rd seed won the match 6-3, 6-3, 7-5.
"I'm really excited how I feel after two five-setters," the 19-time Grand Slam champion said. "It was clearly nice to go up two sets to love for a change. Feels different from there. I think now I'm just trusting my movement better. My serve is there. My mind is there. I can finally focus on playing tennis and not so much about the past."
Next up for Roger will be another ATP veteran, Philipp Kohlschriber.
