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.

SHATIR is probably hiding behind settees and under a mound of pillows not daring to come out!

K3 - he has to win the physical rallies somehow because that's how Nadal plays. When a player can defend three break points in a row, then he has momentum. Fed needs to wrestle, hustle, play dirty, ugly, it's the only way.
