Federer defeats Lopez in Dubai

Federer defeats Lopez in Dubai

A very slick performance from Roger today against Feliciano Lopez, the Spaniard can be tricky because he serves big but Fed came through 7-5 6-3 in just under 90 minutes. Many fans were worried about Roger’s first serve percentage in yesterdays match against Llodra but he turned that on it’s head today firing down 12 aces, keeping 79 per cent …

Federer starts in Dubai with victory

Dubai Tennis

Hola! First match since Roger’s win in Rotterdam last week and it was a pretty comfortable victory against Frenchman Michael Llodra. Fed has won the tournament in Dubai 4 times so he clearly feels pretty comfortable out there, true to form he started the match in peRFect style. He won the first 11 points of the match and lost only …

Federer rolls over Del Potro to win Rotterdam Title

Federer wins in Rotterdam

Allez! 71st title in 86 minutes of tennis peRFection. This was a dreamy match from Roger, he’s looked pretty lackluster this week just coasting through his matches and having to dig deep to beat Davydenko with determination rather than flare.

Swiss Crash to USA in Davis Cup

Switzerland lose in Davis Cup

I normally pay little attention to the Davis Cup but seen as though this is the first time we’ve seen Roger on court in a “competitive match” since he lost to Nadal in the Australian Open Semi Final I thought I’d make a brief post. If you haven’t seen the result, the tie went down as follows: Wawrinka lost 9-7 …
