Roger Federer: Fed Breezes Through to Fourth Round With Straight Set Win
Roger Federer may have had a devil of a time advancing to the third round, but he found things back to business as usual once he got there.
After being pushed to the limit by Gilles Simon in round 2, Federer breezed through third-round opponent Xavier Malisse with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-1 victory to move into the fourth round.
The win was Fed's 57th match win at the Australian Open, passing Stefan Edberg's mark for the most Aussie Open wins in the Open era.
"It's very nice, but he still stays my idol," said Federer, according to ESPN.com
Federer had struggled in the second round, pushed to five sets by Frenchman Gilles Simon, who had won the pair's previous two meetings.
Next up for the 16-time Grand Slam champ is Tommy Robredo of Spain.
