Federer withdraws from Shanghai Masters

Federer withdraws from Shanghai

After his Davis Cup matches in Australia Roger has decided to skip the Shangai Masters, which starts on the 8th October. Half expected after he admitted he was beat up after playing three 4 set matches in 3 days immediately after the US Open Semi. Probably a wise move from Roger here, I guess it was a tough decision as ...

Federer def. Hewitt in 4 Sets in Davis Cup

Federer defeat Hewitt Davis Cup 2011, Sydney

Only watched the higlights but a decent match from Roger considering he’s just flown half way around the world to play here. Lost the first set and was down a break in the second but turned the match around. From just looking at the stats it’s clear he served really well and that’s what won him the match. On Court ...

Djokovic defeats Federer in 5 sets in the US Open Semi Final

Djokovic defeat Federer

I’m not even going to waste my time blogging about this match, the analysis is simple, Fed nearly played the perfect match, he dominated for 2 sets, lost his way for 2 more, then upped his level in the 5th to break. Roger had 2 match points on his own serve, he should have won, but ultimately choked and let ...

Federer avenges loss beating Tsonga in Straight Sets 6-4 6-3 6-3

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

Not the prettiest match from Roger but it was effective and that is all that mattered. This match proved to me that Tsongas victories against Roger were mainly down to Rogers level of play and the match is still very much on his racket. To win with really only 50% of his talent on display last night was a good ...

Federer crushes Monaco 6-1 6-2 6-0

Federer def. Monaco 6-1 6-2 6-0 Bagel Beatdown

Great performance by Roger in this match, probaby one of the most dominant matches he’s played in recent years. Due to the lengthy matches earlier in the day, and Wozniacki taking forever to push her way to a victory, Feds match didn’t start till midnight New York time. Within 12 minutes, Roger was leading 5-0 in the first set. It ...

Federer shows Determination in 6-3 4-6 6-4 6-2 Victory over Cilic

Federer defeats Cillic in 4 sets - US Open Third Round 2011

A very impressive match as far as I was concerned from Roger. Heading into the match I knew Cilic would be a test, but ultimately I fancied Fed to progress without too much trouble. I predicted straight sets in my Sela match review post and after a very convincing first set from Roger it looked to be heading that way. ...

Federer defeats Sela with Ease 6-3 6-2 6-2

Federer def. Sela 6-3 6-2 6-2

Very solid match from Roger, that match lasted just 77 minutes so was over in a flash as a he rolled out a 6-3 6-2 6-2 winner and in doing so, recorded his 225th victory in Grand Slams. He’s only 8 matches off the record holder now – Jimmy Connors. In today’s match he made rather a lot of unforced ...
