Huge fan of Roger Federer - I'll pretty much try and watch all his matches from Grand Slam level right down to ATP 250. When I'm not watching or tweeting about tennis I play regularly myself and use this blog to share my thoughts on Fed and tennis in general.

Halle Draw 2014: Can Federer Defend His Title?

Halle Draw 2014

Hey all, Halle starts on Monday and it’s a fairly strong lineup for such a small tournament featuring Federer, Raonic, Haas, Youzhny, Janowicz and Gasquet. I am almost certain Nadal will pull out as he’s playing the French final tomorrow vs Djokovic. Regardless of result I can’t see him playing. The draw has just been released and you can see ...

Flat Federer Foiled by Gulbis at Roland Garros

Gulbis Beats Federer French Open 2014

A choke of epic proportions here as Federer dumped himself out the French Open with a 6-7(5), 7-6(3), 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 loss at the hands of future world number one and all time great Ernests Gulbis. Not a hugely disappointing loss but the manner of the defeat sucks. From being a set and 5-3 40-15 up Roger completely lost his ...

Federer Passes Tursunov Test in Paris

Federer Tursunov Roland Garros 2014

A tough test for Federer here as he overcame Dmitry Tursunov 7-5 6-7(7) 6-2 6-4 to book his spot in the fourth round for the 12th time in his career. It was far from plain sailing and up until the start of the third set looked like it could have gone either way. After Tursunov started struggling with a groin ...

Federer Into Round 3 at Roland Garros

Federer Second Round Roland Garros 2014

Hey all, another straight sets affair for Roger as he defeated Argentinian Qualifier Diego Sebastian Schwartzman 6-3 6-4 6-4 to move into the third round. A comfortable scoreline but certainly not a one sided affair and I don’t think Federer bossed this one by any means. If anything his defensive ability was the difference as the Argentine played extremely aggressive ...

Federer Cruises Past Lacko at Roland Garros

Federer Lacko French Open 2014

We’re underway in Paris and as I predicted this one was cruise control for Roger has he defeated Lukas Lacko 6-2 6-4 6-2 in 1 hour and 24 minutes to book his spot in the second round. Lacko was a tailor made opponent for Fed as he has no real weapons, a poor clay court record and hadn’t played a ...

French Open Draw 2014

French Open Draw 2014

The draw for the French is out and no surprises here as Federer landed in Djokovic’s half along with Berdych and Raonic. Nadal, Ferrer, Wawrinka and Murray are all in the other half with play beginning on Sunday. If things go to seeding we’ll be getting a Djokodal final which the tournament organisers, the majority of fans and the money ...

Djokovic Takes Down Nadal to Win Rome Title

Djokovic defeats Nadal Rome 2014

It’s been a quiet week with Roger losing early in Rome but with Djokovic dismissing Raonic and Nadal schooling Dimitrov to setup another mouthwatering final I decided to tune in. As usual I wasn’t disappointed as Djokovic came from a set down to defeat Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-3 and win his 5th Masters 1000 tournament out of the last 6 ...

Chardy Upsets Federer in Rome

Chardy defeats Federer Rome

Hopefully Roger booked a short stay apartment in Rome this week as he made a premature exit at the hands of Jeremy Chardy who defeated the Swiss 1-6 6-3 7-6(6) to record only his eighth ever win against a top 10 player. I was predicting 2 close sets for this one but in windy conditions Roger’s game went missing after ...

Rome Masters Draw 2014 – Federer Expected to Play

Rome Masters Draw 2014

The draw for the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome is out and we’re still in the dark as to whether Roger will be making an appearance. According to his agent Tony Godsick he will make a last minute decision and should everything be running smoothly with Leo and Lenny then he will most likely play. I personally think he’ll definitely ...
