Federer Overcomes Benneteau Scare at Wimbledon

Federer def. Benneteau at Wimbledon

Phew, what a crazy match this one was! Before the match yesterday I thought I’d spend more time in this post talking about the Rosol Nadal thriller and how it opened up the draw even further as I fully expected Roger to routine the Frenchman in 3 straight sets. Clearly that wasn’t to be the case. Enter Julien Benneteau… Even …

Hey everyone, Another awesome performance from Roger today as he made Fognini look pretty clueless out there as he breezed past the Italian 6-1, 6-3, 6-2 in 1 hour and 14 minutes. 9 games dropped in 2 matches now – GOAT After triple breadsticking Ramos on Monday Roger carried on from where he left off breaking Fognini 5 times and …

Sublime Federer Cruises Past Ramos at All England Club

Federer defeats Ramos Wimbledon 1st Round

Whoooooooop! Seriously awesome performance from Roger today as he defeated Spaniard Albert Ramos in a mere 79 minutes.

My Take on the Wimbledon Draw

Wimbledon Draw

Well it’s here, my favourite Grand Slam of the year (well I am a Brit so what do you expect?) and Roger actually got a Nadal like draw. There’s no real danger players that you can really see him losing to and you could even expect him to make the QF/SF without dropping a set. Of course he still has …

Well quite a turn up for the books as Tommy Haas extended his record of having not lost a final for 10 years as he took out Roger 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 in an hour and 35 minutes. The result was a huge surprise and I thought Roger would be taking down his 75th title with ease but it just wasn’t …

Federer makes the final in Halle

Federer makes Final in Halle

Boom! Is there a better site in the history of tennis than Roger Federer gracefully moving around a grass court? I don’t think so and the matches against Raonic and Youzhny are evidence why. Roger has always been the best to watch no matter what the surface but on grass it’s just the peRFect combination. I didn’t get chance to …

Federer in Halle

Guten Tag Fed fans! Finally, we’re underway on the grass in Halle at the Gerry Weber Open and I’m glad that we get to watch tennis on a surface that for once isn’t clay.

Federer Fails to Show Up in Paris

Djokovic defeats Federer at French Open

Jeu, set, match Djokovic 6-4 7-5 6-3. This one was such a weird match from start to finish and certainly not the blockbuster we all expected. The crowd never got into it, the intensity was low and the quality from both sides of the net was poor. Barring a couple of lengthy rallies that were great to watch, the match …

Federer beats Del Potro

Boom! Where to start? This match looked like it was curtains for Roger after he fell two sets behind playing some very mediocre stuff only to hit back and overturn the deficit for only the 7th time in his career winning 3-6 6-7 (4/7) 6-2 6-0 6-3. The first two sets were really all about Del Potro, he came out …
