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.

Yes after three hours sleep, this battle doesn't help! lol Glad you are still here.

Still here! Just a little exhausted physically myself!! :P

Roger is not getting out lasted today. Murray is worse physically. Roger just has to pounce on his return games.

Yes true Boting but it's good practice for the match against Rafa!

Roger should have taken that game. This is not good for his confidence which I think is why he is not closing out! Come on Roger, Allez!

Murray is forcing playing rallies and waiting for Federer's mistakes....
