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.

Benard thinks he beat Novak after he had just arrived and jetlegged. If he plays him now , will he bit him? I know Tomic is playing very well and I think his strategy is of a child. If I were hms I would jist surpirse people now that he said it My master Roger Federer will be awaiting him. I think Bernad is playing very weel but for him to say I will bit you even though you can I think its disrespect ful of the game. Roger will come out and sqash. Roger dont let him play his own way
