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.

very entertaining match from both players. some unbelievable shotmaking and some strange shots. of course you are always the best. i love it when your fans give you instructions on how to improve. i thought there would be a little hangover from a 5 setter. probably the strange shots were from that. but a great win for you. congrats. some shots were jaw dropping. hope you rest well. enjoy the twins and mirka. will be cheering for u next round. congrats on record wins at AO. love u so much!!!

First of all congratulations with your victory. And I must say you were right, good analysis of your own game play. Because i didn't saw a flawless Roger all the time..Good thing you woke up on time, another five setter would have freaked me out. But I was for sure you wouldn't let that happen, so good show, but still I think you can do so much better Champ. It have to be against Robredo on Sunday !!! Good luck on that occasion, Come on and Win it !!!, match by match al the way to the Title !!!
