Federer crashes to Tsonga in Wimbledon Quarters

Tsonga def. Federer 3-6 6-7 6-4 6-4 6-4

Rather than letting this defeat sink in, I've decided to wrap it up quickly and hopefully never have to read the post again as writing about a tough Roger loss doesn't come easy.

Federer def. Nalbandian in Rd. 3 & Youhzny in Rd. 4 to make Quarters

Federer into Quarters at Wimbledon

Apologies on the slowness of posting – I've been at Wimbledon over the weekend, sadly didn't see Roger play due to him being on court 1 and I was on center for the day.

Nadal def. Federer in disappointing French Open Final

Nadal def. Federer French Open 2011

Well, I suppose a Nadal win was to be expected. I actually fancied a Roger upset but it just wasn't to be. But still, I have to view the tournament on the whole as a positive – Federer is still definitely a force in tennis and is surely a threat at the 2 remaining Grand Slams. I actually think he'll …

Federer ends the Djokovic Streak in epic Semi Final

Fed defeat Djokovic French Open 2011

Without a shadow of a doubt the best match of the season so far, I'd always been optimistic that Federer could win this match and he did just that! From the very first game right through to the Ace down the T in the 4th set tiebreak that sealed the win, the level was unbelievably high. As I discussed previously, …
