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.

Roger,
I am glad that you won the match. But I have to say that it was a boring match. Your mind seemed to be else where. You can't afford to play like this as the tournament goes deeper. I believe Berdych is in your draw. You should check out his video. He is like an animal powered by firearms. Your strength is a highly focused mind, FedEx-like footwork and decisive shot selection. You have to hit through the shots, not to let the ball hanging in the air. Berdych will hammer it dead!
