Andre Agassi gave away a 51 point "start", a dozen years and 18 centimetres to Joachim Johansson – and still handed him a beating in their third round Australian Open match at Melbourne Park today.

The 34-year-old American beat Johansson 6-7 (4-7) 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3) 6-4 to set up a quarter-final against world No.1 Roger Federer.

For Agassi, a four-time Australian Open champion, the match came down to weathering the massive Johansson serve, which produced a tour record of 51 aces, bettering the previous mark of 49 set by Richard Krajicek at the 1999 US Open.

Over the past year or so, Federer has been a one-man wrecking crew. Agassi should not pose a problem for him. Up til now he has been walking the walk. Go Rog!
