Federer wobbles but roars back to reach third round

Federer wobbles but roars back to reach third round

By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE, Jan 18 (REUTERS) Roger Federer dug himself out of a late slump to fend off American qualifier Noah Rubin 7-5 6-3 7-6(3) today and enjoy a confidence-building win on the way to the third round of the Australian Open. On the comeback trail after six months out of the game, a clinical Federer cruised through the opening two sets but fell into a hole in the third against the plucky world number 200. Federer needed to save two set points on serve at 5-2 down and then came roaring back to take Rubin to a tiebreak. The Swiss master, seeded 17th, raced to three match points at 6-3 and closed it out on the first with a crunching forehand that Rubin could only parry high and wide. Federer plays 10th seed Tomas Berdych in the next round. REUTERS SDR RAI1253
