Online PR News – 09-February-2010 – – Roger Federer once again gave his fans a reason to celebrate by winning the Rolex sponsored 2010 Australian Open, his 16th Grand Slam on Sunday, making it the fourth time following 2004, 2006 and 2007. Roger Federer gave a swift defeat to Andy Murray in the final, making his way to the top rank once again.

The defending champion Rafael Nadal had to stay out of tournament following his third set retirement in his quarter final with Andy Murray. The Australian Open Tournament proved out to be a bitter-sweet affair for Serbian third seed Novak Djokovic with his career taking a jump to rest at number two while his health deteriorating in the Grand Slam. With an upset stomach, Novak Djokovic faced a five set defeat to Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarter final. Novak Djokovic interestingly holds an odd record of maximum Grand Slam retirements. The US Open Champion Juan Martin del Potro was shown the way out by Marin Cilic in the fourth round after a humongous five setter.

Following which Andy Murray earned a huge applaud from the audience for breaking Roger Federerâ€™s serve. However, thereafter Roger Federer maintained his dominance on the court.

Nikolay Davydanko is a four time Grand Slam semi finalist and a six time quarter finalist but has yet to make it to the final. Speaking about his loss, Nikolay Davydenko expressed his disappointment at not making it this time as well. American player Andy Roddick faced a five-set defeat by Marin Cilic in the quarter final. The seventh seed also gave a tough fight despite of being two sets down with a shoulder nerve problem but still did not have his way to success. The match between Roger Federer and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga remained lopsided with Federer beating Tsonga by 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in semi final. Later Jo-Wilfried Tsonga confessed of being tired out due to playing back to back five-set matches. At conclusion of the first grand slam of the year and continuing with his winning streak and stupendous success in Grand Slams, Roger Federer looked elated at his one of many Rolex sponsored Australian Open victories.
