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 UNUSUAL EXPRESSION ON ROGER'S FACE AFTER MATCH POINT , I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO ROAR LIKE A LION AND SAY "YES!!!" OR " COME ON !!! " , INSTEAD HE LOOKED TO HIS BOX WITH A SMIRK ON HIS FACE LIKE HE'S SAYING TO HIMSELF : " I GOT AWAY WITH MURDER TODAY , HOW FREAKIN LUCKY CAN I GET ??? "

Come on Dear Roger! Keep Going! Eagerly expecting your No. 5 - No17 & No.68

i have to vent a little. nadal gets the best luck. cilic or isner will be too wiped out to even give nadal any challenge. he would win anyway but they will give him NO trouble now. just like djokovic after his 5 setter with roger at the us open. i hope soderling and murray don't do the same thing. you need all the rest you can get playing him. i hope roger can come through easily from now on. nadal already has an easier draw than roger. this just irks me. he is just skating through.
