Defending champion Roger Federer swiftly extended his winning streak to 24 matches when opponent Jarkko Nieminen was forced to retire from their Australian Open third-round match.

Nieminen had been a break up in the early stages of the first set but was trailing 6-3 5-2 when he indicated he could not continue with a stomach injury. Federer, who has not lost a match since the second round of the Olympics in Athens and has also won three 'exhibition' matches during his winning run, will face qualifier Marcos Baghdatis for a place in the quarter-finals.

Is anyone going to be able to stop him?

Federer not only plays great, he is graceful and fun to watch. What a great array of shots. He also seems to be capable of making more adjsutemnets mid-game than any other player in recent memory, including little Hingis who was an excellent strategist against the gigundo women.

Unless he has a let down, Ming does not see anyone stopping him.
