Roger flies into quarters

20.01.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger secured the last spot in the quarters of the Australian Open with a 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

It took our champ under two hours to defeat the Frenchman, showing a flawless display with a variety of shots and great variety throughout, 43 winners, seven aces and 21 unforced errors. It is the 11th straight year our champ has reached the quarters in Melbourne and the 41st time in his career that he will play a quarter final at a major - Roger has level Jimmy Connors' record.

Next up is a quarter-final clash with Andy Murray on Wednesday, certainly a match to look forward to.

Roger is doing great with the racquet but it may be lack of confidence in it when it comes to closing out. He has not had that long with it. We have great days to come with that racquet I am sure, but Rogi will win! He is challenging Murray's serve every game, I cannot believe that Murray has managed to wriggle out everytime so far!

Boting go and crawl under a cover please.

I can't give murray such credit.He is a very good defender and that way he can make the match last longer,which isn't good for Roger since he is older.It isn't that he is playing such a great tennis.If Roger was a little more cautious when he served for the match,we wouldn't be talking about murray's abilities.It was Federer that didn't do the right things.

Any moment when Murray attacks Federer will be beaten!!!
