Roger Federer made it into the quarter finals of the Australian Open 2010 with his 15th straight victory over Lleyton Hewitt with a magical display in front of the Aussie crowd. He thrilled his fans with winner after winner, one sensational shot after another, forehand crosscourt, forehand up the line, backhand crosscourt and backhand up the line. And it wasn't that Hewitt played poorly - he gave everything he had - he just ran into Federer in invincible form.
He next faces Davydenko, who himself is on a 13-match winning streak, but if he can duplicate the sort of performance he put on against Hewitt, he will surely be progressing to a 23rd consecutive Grand Slam semi-final. There were moments in the match where the Swiss took one's breath away with a stunning array of shots and winners, the elegance with which he did so, and the ridiculous backhand winners that were made to look so easy.
