    Default Federer hopes never to face Simon again

    Roger Federer hopes never to play Gilles Simon again after narrowly scraping past the Frenchman in the second round of the Australian Open.

    19531 - Federer hopes never to face Simon again

    Second seed Federer saw a two-set lead slip away to the resilient world No. 34, but eventually held on to win a five-set thriller 6-2 6-3 4-6 4-6 6-3. It was Federer's first victory against Simon, having lost the two previous encounters between them.

    "He's a great player," Federer said of Simon. "Matches against him don't come easy. It's my first win against him [in three attempts]; they always go the distance. Hopefully I don't play him anymore."

    Federer will play the unseeded Belgian Xavier Malisse in the third round. Having survived a tough test of his credentials, the 16-time grand slam champion does not believe such a draining encounter will affect his chances in the rest of the tournament.

    "Four or five sets, what's the difference really?" Federer said, half-jokingly. "Doesn't matter if you win in straight or in five. Just keep on moving on in the draw.


    "I really enjoyed myself out here tonight. I wasn't playing poorly to lose the third and fourth set - Gilles really took it to me. Today I got lucky and I'm happy I'm still in the tournament."
