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.

edit - Surprisingly you misunderstood! The commentator was not speaking English but translating into German so you couldn't hear what Roger was saying in his interview!

i'm certain he'll be back.He has all the time in the world to be reported and come back with a different flag in about 2 seconds,so he will come back.It's a psychiatric issue,it can't be changed without proper meds.

OMG, I haven't seen Roger dominating Andy since ages.
I adore the new racket. It's giving him more power, speed and he's also committing less unforced errors than the previous years. I couldn't believe that Roger was dominating the long rallies today. Also he had more winners than Andy and i think he committed less unforced errors also. The backhand was superb and the forehand was mighty. I also love Edberg. I think he has a great psychic and mental effect on Roger. Comeooooooooon.
