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.

Dearest Roger,

Congratulations for making the 4th round. You made another record! I'm glad to know you feel no back problems after the tense 5 setter with Simon.
Take some rest and on Sunday I will send you all my love and energy!

God bless you.

Felicidades Roger!! Otro Record más...y así seguirán más!!
Hubo errores no forzados que ni tu podías creer, se te vió molesto en el 1er set, en el 4o y 5o juego...qué fué??
Ojalá y en los próximos partidos todo esté mejor y juegues al 100%, porque éstos momentos me hacen sufrir, como creo a todos tus fans.
Lo importante es que finalmente ganaste y nos regalaste puntos maravillosos...Gracias Roger por ser lo máximo y deleitarnos con tu gran estilo de tennis....love you ;) Descansa
