Tennis superstar Roger Federer won against John Millman in an outstanding match. Everyone who had the pleasure to watch this match could agree on one thing. It was spectacular!
Roger Federer is surprised by John Millman playstyle and he made a few comments on that topic. “Oh God, it was tough. Thank God it was a super-tiebreaker, otherwise I would have lost this one”. This clearly tells us that these two tennis giants are serious when it comes to the Australian Open.
He is a fighter – I’ll give him that
“John played a great match, he might as well have been out here [in the post-match interview] as well. He’s a great fighter, a good guy and it came down to the wire.”
The match was closer than anyone could expect. Namely, Roger Federer won in the tennis match against John Millman, 4-6, 7-6(2), 6-4, 4-6, 7-6(8), in order to advance to the fourth round. This tournament is of the highest importance to Millman as he is an Australian tennis player.
As for the winner, he is not in for a treat in the next round. Simply put, Roger Federer is waiting to play against possibly the best tennis player ever. Of course, that’s the defending champion, Novak Djokovic. But first, they both need to play a bit more in order to meet in the semifinals.
On the other hand, the tournament is done for Millman as he really put a lot into this match. Unfortunately, his effort was not enough as Roger Federer won. Millman came in this match with confidence and he really did his best.
Humid Conditions favors Roger Federer
It’s a known thing that the Australian Open is a tournament with not that good condition for players. Simply speaking, humid conditions are not what you want when you need to meet one of the best tennis players in the world. Luckily, for Roger, he is full of experience on these occasions and that certainly helped.
Anyhow, it’s not easy to take to sets from Roger, and that’s definitely considered as a win on its own. But, as we all like to say, better luck next time Millman.
Also, Millman will make his comeback on some other tennis tournament, we are sure of that. Surely, he is getting stronger and stronger each tournament as we can see from his playstyle.
