Roger flies into final

29.01.2010 | Tennis

Roger will challenge for his fourth Australian Open title this Sunday after he defeated France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-2, 6-3, 6-2, wasting no time and energy.

 

"It's nice going through a match like that," Roger said. "I think against top players, it's always positive if you can win the first set. It won't be the same story in the next match I play here."

 

Roger had no problems disposing of the 2008 runner-up today. The Frenchman looked a pale shadow of his best form as our number one did what he pleased to. Tsonga had won their last encounter, in three sets in Montreal last August, but it was never a contest at their third career meeting.

 

Roger will play the 22nd (!) grand slam final of his career and 18th of the last 19 majors. The only break in the sequence was his semifinal loss to Djokovic in 2008 in the Australian Open, which he has won three times so far. Roger will meet Andy Murray (ATP 5) in Sunday's final. Although the head-to-head is negative for our champ (4-6), Roger has a good feeling as he had been able to defeated the Scotsman clearly in the final of the US Open 2008.

Waoh! Murray's mom looks like a monster when she says comeon, no wonder, that's where Andy got his behavior. Roger couldn't break Murray at 0-40 but he better hold serve here to go up 5-3 and have another chance to winning the 2nd set.

Murray has started his comeon,and trying to play aggressive. It's time for Roger to top the notch and go for the kill. He had 2 break chances there and he let it slip, but I know he will convert and run with this set. All he needs to do is to continue to

Roger is toying with Murray in this game, he needs to teach him a lesson not to speak ill about Roger and his aachievements. Stay focus Rog. It's 3-1 now so Murray has to be coming from behind.
