The Swiss great had to battle from a set and a break down midway through the second set to claim a hard-fought 4-6 6-4 6-3 win over world No.153 Millman.
 
Roger+Federer+2015+Brisbane+Internationa
 
Federer will face another Australian in Friday’s quarter-finals after James Duckworth reached the last eight of a tournament for the first time in his ATP Tour career with an earlier victory over Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen.
 
Millman, who played Andy Murray at the same event in 2013, showed no nerves against 33-year-old Federer.
 
He made a brilliant start against his more illustrious opponent, matching him service game to service game until a heart-pounding sequence in Federer’s fifth service game of the opening set.
 
Playing some inspired tennis, Millman opened up a 0-40 lead and three set points.
 
It appeared he’d blown his moment when Federer rallied to take the game to deuce.
 
But Millman kept his cool and secured the break and the set shortly afterwards.
 
The Brisbane product showed he wasn’t content with just a set against the old master as he continued his stunning form in the second set.
 
The crowd went to fever pitch when a passing shot in the fourth game of the set sealed another break and put Millman ahead 3-1, the Australian roaring in delight as he realised the upset was on.
 
That moment sparked Federer into life however, with the former world No.1 reeling off four straight games on his way to a 6-4 second set win.
 
He then showed all of his big-match experience to keep Millman at arm’s length, breaking the hometown favourite twice in the final set to secure the win.
 
Federer paid compliment to his opponent after the match, admitting he’d had to raise his game to get past Millman.
 
“I thought I got quite lucky,” said Federer on-court. “He was playing great tennis until maybe the last couple of games. I had to fight very hard. Credit to him for pushing me to the edge.
 
“I didn’t play badly, but maybe felt a bit tired at times. The first match of the season you never know quite what to expect. I am sweating like crazy. I am happy we had a good match and I got through in the end.”
 
“I thought he was definitely the more consistent player out there,” said Federer. “He was dominating the baseline, so I tried to come in some and tried to mix it up. Basically I had to elevate my game, because he was not letting go.

Frustratingly I missed being able to watch this match, but have caught a flavour of it from scanning Twitter.

Good grief it sounded anything but a comfortable match to ease our maestro into the new season!

Full marks to John Millman, who I have not heard of till today, for putting up such a challenging opposition. Great relief that Roger was able to win through and not have the inauspicious experience of being knocked out in the first match he played in 2015. Sounds like it took grit and determination to get the upper hand.

Lets hope that tomorrow evening's match against James Duckworth, another wild card entrant from Australia, is not as tense.

Must say I was relieved to see Roger chose to wear the red top and shoes .... rather than the glaringly bright neon yellow B)
