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.

***Mitz did u see that? Roger was calm, he didn't panic and he got the break he needs. Now he will serve to even it out. I predict a 7-5 game in this set, worse case scenario, a tie break, but Murray had his chance for a set and he squandered it. Go Roger
