Scouting: Roger is of course one of the greatest players of all time. Roger is 5 times champion at Wimbledon and has also won the US Open and Australian Open. Thus, the French Open is the only Grand Slam to aloud this great champion.

Roger has one of the best all-round games on the tour. He has a big serve especially when it comes to big moments in the match. His movement is so fluid and has great anticipation, plus he also likes to mix up with a few serve and volley points from time to time (normally once a game and when he is leading in the game). His forehand is his stronger side and also makes the big shot with this stroke. If he does have a slight weakness is his backhand and his inability to make this shot when being rushed. If a player can stay in the ralley long enough you need to continue to work over his backhand and then try to push forward when possible and make him his a rushed passing shot.
