Roger flies into next round

21.01.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger defeated Xavier Malisse 6-3, 6-3, 6-1 at the Australian Open on Friday to reach the fourth round.

"I pulled up with no back problems after the match with Simon, which in the past would have scared me a little bit," Roger said. "I'm happy how my body is feeling and I'm moving well. Obviously key to good tennis play today is good movement. That's what I've got at the moment, so I'm very happy."

Roger started perfectly, breaking Malisse twice and racing to a 4-0 lead and then easily securing the first set. But after the break between the sets his game wasn't what he had started with, falling 1-3 behind after a break by the Belgian. But Roger woke up immediately, won 10 games in a row to fly to a 6-3 and then 5-0 lead and eventually move into the fourth round after 1 hour 45 minutes.

Our champ will now play Tommy Robredo (ATP 52) on Sunday. He stands 9-0 against the Spaniard, a 2007 quarter-finalist.

Felicidades Roger!! El primer set fué increíbleee!! No perdiste ni un solo punto de tu saque....fué espectacular, hasta record creo que hiciste!! wowww
En el segundo algo te pasó que hasta te rompió el servicio, me quedé en shock...pero volviste a darle con todo y llegaste a ganar fácilmente en el 4o set.
Bien Roger!! Ahora sí a ponerte las pilas, porque vienen partidos más difíciles, digo para tus futuros oponentes....yeahhh!! Gracias campeón!!
