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.

people now start to realize how lucky nadal is. I do not really how he always has an easy draw. all the time nadal has an easy draw. fed or djoko has the toughthest one. now solder-murray have the strongest draw. still fed has a strong draw. at The us open fed has to go through tough opponent while nadal is facing some easy one and finally djoko beat fed in 5. fed is a human being like everyone , he can be so tired and not be able to win. wait to how the french open draw will be, same craps f na

Great, Champ! Keep on movin' on, and keep the fire burnin'! Don't up set for anything what happens in the matches. Keep your concentration under control! Direct your hits strongly especially from your backhand. Then they'll become shaper. Good luck and skill!
