Roger still to drop a set

18.01.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has secured his spot in the round of the last 16 with a clear 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 win over Russia's Teimuras Gabaschwili (ATP 79) at the Australian Open.


"I'm happy that from my side I'm winning my matches in straight sets. It's been different conditions every match: the heat first and the indoor match and now normal conditions today with a bit of wind. So it's just good to get through and get a good feel out there and make sure if you've got a chance to win your matches easier to do so."

Roger displayed a very solid match under conditions a lot more like what he is used to. He broke his Russian opponent in regular intervals, always keeping a safe lead and managing to fight off five breaks himself. After 1h 41 of play he celebrated his 71st victory at the Australian Open and will play the round of tha last 16 for the 13th consecutive year. He will meet either Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (ATP 10) or Gilles Simon (ATP 19) on Monday.

In 12 service games, Roger has only given Tsonga 12 points. That's simply beautiful! His focus is on all the right things.
