Roger in round three

16.01.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger defeated Blaz Kavcic (ATP 99) 6-2, 6-1, 7-6(4) to reach the third round of the Australian Open.

 

For the first time in ten years, Roger had to play outside Rod Laver Arena. He got on court at Hisense Arena after the extreme heat policy was enforced earlier on Thursday. Our champ showed great tennis, scoring 11 aces and breaking Kavcic's serve six times to secure the win in under two hours.

 

He will now play either Fernando Verdasco (ATP 33) or Teimruas Gabaschwili (ATP 79).

SDANU, interesting that you mention the net height clearance. During the match the commentators actually mentioned this with regards to the new racquet. So far this year, Roger has been averaging 77 inches.

Brilliant, well said. Given the toughest draw for our man I also wish at least any one of your wishes comes true.

Dear Idol,
Congratulations. Kindly keep moving on. We fans certainly do not want the repeat of previous year where you seemed to lose focus & way incongrously after playing good early rounds in almost all the Majors. All the best for fourth round.
Respect.
