Through to quarters in four

23.01.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has made it through the first week Down Under and will play the quarter finals next week thanks to a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Tommy Robredo.

"It was a tough match and I'm really happy to be in the next round," Roger commented. "I'm sweating bullets out here so I'm really delighted to win this match."

Once again, Roger started perfectly, hitting ace after ace and not conceding a single point on his serve in the first set. But the second proved to be a rough ride as he struggled with his return and couldn't get the balls into play like he wanted to. But he went on to regain control in the third and fourth set, taking each one thanks to early breaks.

With the victory, Roger has reached the quarter-finals for 27 consecutive majors since his third-round exit at the 2004 French Open, equaling Connors Open era record! Of his 26 previous quarter-final appearances, he has converted 24 into semifinals, gone on to reach 20 finals and won 14 of them.

In the quarter-final, he will either meet Andy Roddick (ATP 8) or his Swiss Olympic teammate Stanislas Warwinka (ATP 19) on Tuesday.

Dear Roger
I will not repeat how happy I am seeing you in QF! Of course I expect to see you in the final match as well. I'm sure that step by step you'll reach your goal: the 17th GS trophy at AO. But to achieve this you, at least, have to beat your next opponent! I don't know what you think about that, but please, show no mercy! It's QF! Hope you have rested enough and feel well!
I wish you all the best and good luck dearest Roger.
Go, Roger, goooooooooooo!
Love, Mimi

Dear Roger,
My prayers + good wishes are with you for the match against Stan.
Try not to get bothered by him,
Put up your 'assassin's mood', as someone said here,
but most of all, CONCENTRATE 100%. FOCUS on each point.
Thank you, thank you and may God bless you with victory.

Congratulations, dear!
I wish you the best next match, because Stan is a very dangerous player and is playing an amazing tennis. You have to be focused and pacient all the time.
God bless you.

Nadal-Ferrer is going to be the same circus and show that we have seen far too often in recent Grand Slams when a Spaniard (e.g., Verdasco, Lopez, Almagro, Robredo, Garcia-Lopez) faces Nadal. So, that's basically a joke, as Nadal is unofficially already in semifinals.

Your comrade, on the other hand, will give you a heck of a fight. You need to focus, attack, and become the first player to enter the semifinals officially :)

You will shine. We are waiting.

Amazing victory again Fed. Was tough although you could eventually find your best tennis to regain your triumph. However, you should try to be focused the more time you can, because those moments of difficulties after winning a set can be extremely dangerous in case you face the best players!

Next step is Stan. It's gonna be such a really difficult match, 'coz he's playing quite well, but I'm sure if you play as you did so far, you won't have any problems at all.

Best wishes, champ. C'mon!
