Roger advances

17.01.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger eased into round three of the Australian Open with a 6-3 6-4 6-4 victory over Russian Nikolay Davydenko. 


Roger was in charge right from the start and broke his opponent in the sixth game to take the opening set in 42 minutes. He continued just that way and never faced a break himself throughout the entire match. 


Our champ will now face the Aussie crowd favourite Bernard Tomic, whom he beat in straight sets in the second round of last year's Australian Open. "It's nice to see Bernard playing better again. He had a rough end to the season last year, but he's had a wonderful start this year and I hope he can keep it up and crack the big rankings. It's going to be an exciting match. I have got to play tough. I don't mind the physical aspects and maybe that is an advantage for me. I will always play aggressively but we will try to move each other around a bit so it will need a bit more finesse,"  said Roger.

Roger, congratulations. I completed my mission to see you play live. I am leaving Melnourne tomorrow. You looked great on this AO outfit. The blue was terrific too. I wondered why you were not wearing this New outfit when you played last day session. It may be good you play with Tomic, otherwise we cannot see you on TV. As some fans written on the forum, channel 7 did not broadcast your last match, but on the Aussie players. Give Tomic a lesson. The German played good too, he did not choose wise

Nice victory.
Beautiful clothes, but I'm not sure what to think about the shoes. Maybe too much pink. But you're the only player that can occur with these shoes. I can not imagine Djokovic, Murray and the other in pink color. You just think about tennis, it's the most important thing, the clothes is not important.
Best of luck, Roger.

Roger, Maestro, congrats. You've done it. Now please rest and defeat Tomic.
I don't mind him beeing arrogant, but he is overstepping it.

Rest, then practise and hope to see you healthy and rested voor the next match.
2 behind, 5 more to go !!!

Love and respect you really always. Kemna

Ps: Why don't they call you the Swissenator???

Hi, just a question for the DUTCH fans:

Wordt de finale op 27-01 zondagnacht (naar maandagochtend) gespeeld of juist op maandagavond 28-01? Hoe zit het nou met het tijdsverschil?

Graag antwoord. Kemna

You can catch the action here - http://www.australianopen.com/index.html where there is a link to AO Radio regardless of your location.

I also downloaded the app from itunes for my iphone.
