Re: Australian Open Rd 3: Federer defeats Malisse 6-3,6-3,6-1
Very entertaining match. Parts of the first set in particular was exhibition no-pressure tennis, with great shots interspersed amongst shocking misses. Then Malisse broke Fed in the second set, after which Roger just went on a tear and won 9 games in a row. Really enjoyable match to watch - Malisse is an exciting player on the court.
Fed was mad with himself in the first part of the match, then just went into cruise control. It's really difficult to ascertain what kind of form he is in right now with regards to his prospects for actually winning the tournament.
