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.

The connection dropped in the last game! zzz And I can only get Roger's interview with German or Italian commentary! zzz

Still what matters Roger held out against a strong challenge to win. X

Well now that Roger is finished with Jim, I am off to bed. Hopefully the adrenalin will settle down so I can get to bed. See you all on Friday.

At least he has defended his points from last year. From here on out the wins are a bonus.

Relish. Hope rest will come true too.
