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.

that's good for Roger,because it means you believe in him.
But it's also good for you because when someone wants to succeed,being a little nervous means you have high goals.

How are you? Roger was awesome. Caught the last set on tv. I believe Roger is also very happy he choose to work with Edberg.

Kemna remember Novak plays Stan next and last year when they also played it was very close!

Hulietta, you have joined us just as I am heading off to bed. Sorry I can't stay up to chat for a little longer. I hope you enjoyed the match as much as I did. Hopefully I will see you here in a couple of days.

Good night everyone.

KEMNA,do you remember what i've told you about Nishikori?He was a tough opponent and it was the details that caused his loss.Dimitrov,well he is a different thing,he can beat nadull,mark my words.
Our Roger won't have a problem with Murray,if he plays like today.Murray won't hold in a game like this.

KEMNA,i agree with you,Edberg is the best coach for Roger.But,what makes me even prouder,is that Roger isn't selfish,he listens,although he is so successful and takes the advices of his coach and put them into action.
For example,i didn't see any difference at all in Djokovic's game,i don't think Becker offered anything at all.
