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.

Guys, please let us remember:

a) Roger will win
b) He only played for like 2 months with this racquet.

He made QF. That is enough. Now lets look if he wins this. If he wins, Goat, great, if he loses, no worries, atleast he came this far...

But he will win

And.... how does "INJURED" Andy look???

Boting I agree. More than often Murray wins them but this is good practice for Roger. He has had it relatively easy until now!

I still have faith but it does not stop my nerves! He does need to get back to the tactics of the first 2 sets though. He looked so sharp with them.

Murray is playing way better from 4-5 down in the third. He is also reading the game better, not allowing the same amount of attacks.

It is to be expected, Murray, Djoko, Nadal and Fed are at the top of the game because they can adapt.
