Roger fresh for week two

23.01.2010 | Tennis

Roger produced a convincing display on serve to progress to the fourth round of the Australian Open with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 victory over Albert Montañes (ATP 32).

 

"He didn't make many mistakes. I expected him to miss a bit more. I needed to make sure I served well because if I had a hiccup on serve it could have been an even closer game," Roger said. "I've come through a difficult draw, I feel physically fine and mentally fresh, but the opponents will get tougher from here."

 

Our champion broke his Spanish opponent once in each set and did not allow him a single break point on the way to today's victory. He only had a rather short period during the second set when his game did not work like he wanted it to. But he went right on to break Montañes to love to advance 5-4 in the second and then serve out the set. The third was again dominated by Roger who came to an early break, closing the match after 1 hour and 48 minutes.

 

Roger will now face either Lleyton Hewitt or the 2006 finalist, Marcos Baghdatis, for a place in the quarter-finals. Roger has beaten Baghdatis in all nine of their previous meetings and defeated Hewitt the last 14 times they have played each other.
