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.

Well done Roger, that's the way to go. I look forward to you giving Tomic a lesson like your last encounter! Love the silver/grey top. The small amount of pink is ok, it works, but would not like to see to much pink. I am not so sure of your shoes. Too much strong pink for me. They would look wonderful I think with silver/grey laces, it would tone down the pink a little and pick up the sliver/grey top! Have a good rest Rogi and good luck for Saturday.

Hi Roger. Great match against Nikolaj. Now, I know I'm an Aussie, but....you are my number 1 player and Tomic doesn't even make my list (very short list, consisting of 1 player - you). Hope you beat him in 3 sets on Saturday and go on to win your 5th Aussie Open. My fingers are crossed Roger. I have been a fan of yours for many years and would dearly love to see you get a 5th Australian Open Championship Title.

Pink does seem to work for you :) Congratulations on your 2nd round win! Maybe a bit jittery on serve but good game in all. Good luck for Saturday Roger!
