Among the last 16

05.09.2005 | Tennis

Top seed Roger Federer booked his place in the last 16 of the US Open with a 6-3 7-6 (8/6) 6-2 victory against Olivier Rochus at Flushing Meadows.

The world number one's victory against the 27th seed extended his winning streak to 21 matches overall.

The Swiss ace won in straight sets for the third time in as many matches and has dropped just one set in his last eight Grand Slam matches, but is determined not to be complacent.

"I don't like to think about I'm number one and that he's not going to try," Federer said. "That can work against you. They can come out and want to win and may play better than they usually do."

Federer now meets unseeded Nicolas Kiefer after the German advanced to the fourth round for the second consecutive year with a 6-4 6-7 (5/7) 6-4 6-1 victory over Arnaud Clement.

I am a little worry the schedule is being against you.Why USTA didn't play Roger in the opening match of the first day.So now you will have to play last day without enough recess.Of course you might control your game and you will win this open

Hi R_F!!
Just another warm-up match against Rochus before the quarter-finals (Kiefer would probably prove to be a good training too).
