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.

Stan vs Berdy 8.30 UK time tomorrow if you do not know!
Meanwhile, I can dance around VERY happy. They are now about to put the Dimitrov vs Rafa match on, should be interesting to watch.
Interview as usual was amusing. He himself was joking about holding the record for losing the most break points. He just seems to accept that it is situation normal when he does it! Well, win or lose against Rafa, I am happy. He has beaten 2 good players to get there with the new racquet, Stefan effect later o
