TENNIS | Australia Open Federer gets in the way of Tsonga


Switzerland's Roger Federer added another victory today full of strength to advance to the quarterfinals of the Australia Open tennis. World number two and four times champion, Federer beat CanadianMilos Raonic 6-4, 7-6 (7-4) 6-2 in a match of 113 minutes in the disappointed rival. "It was cool and maybe that helped me," Federer analyzed before joking: "And I had good reflexes". "Milos is a great talent, has a great future, was an important match for me, a challenge," said the Swiss, kind to the fifteenth of the world ranking, which demanded not as expected. Because the night of Melbourne chip promised a duel, a game in which the veteran and highly successful 31-year Swiss must suffer to the limit with the rising young Canadian 22. But there was none of that, and Federer will play on Wednesday against Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for a place in the semifinals of the first Grand Slam of the year. Federer extended his record to 35 quarterfinals consecutive Grand Slam tournaments. Not amused Raonic , who had taken to the limit to Federer three previous times confronted him, but today, perhaps intimidated by the breathtaking scenery that is the Rod Laver Arena , maybe too much pressure to show that it is able to give a great blow disappoint. Your best weapon, the service did not work the Montenegro-born Canadian to the extent needed. He made 19 aces, yes, but the first service did not help when I needed it and, above all, grossly failed with their groundstrokes, which were a concert of errors. Thus, a double fault left Raonic set point down, and an increase in network delay led him to leave the ball in the net to give the opening set 6-4. Federer, wearing shoes with laces comment roses remain in Australia, had some more difficulties in the second set, which cost him read the rival service, but in the tie break, as usual, did not disappoint: with a right parallel took the second set and Raonic, overwhelmed, sank. Thirty-five minutes later another strong parallel right gave the victory to Federer, who writes in the quest to grow your most valuable record: has 17 Grand Slam titles and wants the eighteenth. So confident and relaxed was Federer after the match, which allowed several jokes with your interviewer, former number one Jim CourierThe theme was pink jersey he wore today details the Swiss. Why did you return to dress? The answer was unexpected, barely "federiana". "I put it because my big muscles have to keep warm. Especially my left arm, which impresses, scares the opponent."
