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.

Bravo, Roger! I never had any doubt about the outcome of this match. For the upcoming one with Tomic, I noticed how cautionsly you talked about him, nd praised him, yet sure enough there will be commentary about that, too. Never mind the droolers, the adult bib-crowd: Take a good overview, and take the situation in hand. Don't let the lad get carried away: you have places to go!

Congratulations Roger...I was watching the livescore while at work.. and have to admit I was a little nervous about this match as Davy has been playing so well - but I didn't need to worry!!! It is so great to see you advancing again thru the toughest quarter of the draw, onwards and upwards, towards that title :) Good luck against Tomic, I am sure it will be a great atmosphere on Sat.. and I will hope to watch you live at last.... Goooo Rogerrrrr!!

you are majestic !! After reading the quite unkind comments made by your next opponent a few days ago, you ARE KIND TO HIM. You are an angel walking on earth and we are so lucky to be able to witness this kindness.
Good luck for your next rd.
Praying for you. GOD bless you.

Felicidades Roger!!!

Buen partido, buena performance; disminuye un poco lo UE y afina tu saque; pero jugaste muy bien, con gran decisión desde el principio, imponiendo tu superioridad.

Exitos contra TOMIC, espero verte triunfar nuevamente, se que vas a ganar, confío en tu gran desenvolvimiento en la cancha, tu experiencia y saber que eres el MEJOR!!! EL MEJOR TENISTA DE TODOS LOS TIEMPOS, AUNQUE NO LES GUSTE A MUCHOS, A NOSOTROS NOS AGRADA Y TE QUEREMOS ROGER.
