Roger in perfect form

Roger played a terrific match today, dismissing Victor Hanescu 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 today to show that he is ready to go all the way for his fourth title Down Under.

"I knew the danger of Victor. He is a good player although maybe he is more accustomed to clay. I am just thrilled to be through," Roger said.

Our champ raced through the first set with ease in just 34 minutes. It took him one minute less in claiming the second set and Hanescu could only play witness to greatness in the third, as Roger dashed ahead and then closed the match. Roger hit 52 winners and was not broken once by his Romanian opponent.

Roger faces Albert Montañes on Saturday, he has beaten the Spaniard in both previous meetings. After that, he is headed towards either Lleyton Hewitt or Marcos Baghdatis.
