Tomas Berdych in action against France's Edoaurd Roger-Vasselin



H2H Edouard-Roger Vasselin vs Tomas Berdych

So far, so good for Edouard Roger-Vasselin: after making it through the qualifying rounds, he sent Ivo Karlovic packing (4-6, 7-6, 7-6) to secure a spot in the second round of the BNP Paribas Masters a career first. Although the doubles world No.16 (singles No.149) got off to a sluggish start once again, dropping the first set in a repeat of his two qualifying rounds, he finally picked up the pace to close out. Karlovic, up 5-3 and serving for the match, was unable to hold on as Roger-Vasselin broke him at every chance, making victory that much sweeter for the Frenchman. He’ll face No.5 Tomas Berdych in the second round.
