Roger has started his preparation for the Australian Open well. He defeated Spaniard Carlos Moya in the AAMI Classic at Kooyong with ease 6-2, 6-3.

The match lasted just 57 minutes with Roger bouncing back from defeats to Andy Murray in Abu Dhabi and in Doha."I was a little rusty in the beginning, missed quite a few forehands, but I thought it was a good match overall," he said. "There were a few gusts of wind, which makes it not easy to play, but I felt like I was playing okay today."

Roger's next opponent will be Spanish Davis Cup hero Fernando Verdasco, who had little trouble defeating rising Croatian star Marin Cilic 6-2 7-5. Roger will be looking to add to his tally of 13 Grand Slam victories at Melbourne Park next week.
