A last victory before the first big tournament

13.01.2006 | Tennis

Roger was given a preview of his potential Australian Open third-round clash when he just squeezed past Mirnyi, leaving his best until the very last before winning 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 7-6 (7-1).


"Players like him, they've got great serves, they're great athletes, at the net especially but I think at the same time it's a great challenge to always keep on passing. You're always going to see nice points and always a lot of winners and I enjoy that actually."


He plays unknown wildcard Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan in the first round of the Australian Open. Roger is really looking forward to the first big tournament this year. "There's obviously nerves always involved and a lot at stake for me."

I'm pretty nervous when you play also, Roger but I have learned to have faith in you no matter the score. Nerves are natural before a big tournament but you shall prevail!

Good luck and know that all your fans love you no matter what!

Love, Colleen

Roggie, I wish I could take your nerves away from you---Wait! What am I saying? I'm always a nervous wreck for you during the big occasions also! I'd be a basket case if I took on more. If I could, I would!!

All good wishes sent your way for a fabu
