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.

Federer Overcomes Second Set Wobble to Defeat Anderson in Rome

Federer Anderson Rome 2015

A relatively routine victory for Federer here as he defeated big serving Kevin Anderson 6-3 7-5 to make the Quarter Finals at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia where he's looking to lift the title for the very first time. Up until 5-2 in the second set it was looking like an impeccable performance but Roger switched off just before the finish …

Federer 2nd Round Rome 2015

Back to winning ways on the red stuff for Federer as he defeated Pablo Cuevas 7-6(3) 6-4 to move into the third round in Rome where he'll face big serving Kevin Anderson. This one was a rematch of the Istanbul final just 2 weeks ago and in many ways a very similar match; Roger played solidly throughout and Cuevas just …

Rome Draw 2015: Federer Confirms Participation

Federer Rome Draw 2015

Hey guys, I'm back after a short break and Roger's disappointing loss in Madrid at the hands of Nick Kyrgios. His early exit prompted him to play Rome which he had long planned to skip and surely would have done so had his visit to the Caja Magica lasted longer than a day 🙂 Rome is of course one of …

Federer Defeats Schwartzman to Make Final in Istanbul

Federer Istanbul Semi Final

Another hard fought victory for Federer at the Garanti Koza Arena as he defeated a dogged Diego Schwartzman 2-6 6-2 7-5 to move into Sunday's final. Like the Gimeno-Traver match yesterday Roger was again tested by a solid, hard hitting opponent who knows how to get about a clay court very effectively. Ultimately though the Swiss was just that bit …

Madrid Open Draw 2015: Federer & Nadal in Same Half

Madrid Open Draw 2015

No sooner had I finished my Istanbul quarter final post than the Madrid Open draw comes out 🙂 . First thoughts are it looks pretty tough for Federer who is now the Number 1 seed after Djokovic's decision to skip the event and rest for Rome and the French Open. As I expected he's in Nadal's half which isn't necessarily …

Federer Scores Hard Fought Victory Over Gimeno-Traver in Istanbul

Federer Quarter Final Istanbul 2015

Not the dominant performance I expected from the GOAT here but he's into the Istanbul Semi Finals after a hard fought 7-6(3), 6-7(5), 6-3 victory over the in form Daniel Gimeno-Traver. After looking fairly solid in his opening match against Nieminen on Wednesday the Spaniard offered a much sterner test pushing the opener to a tie break, levelling things up …

Another FedDay at the Monte-Carlo Country Club

Hi my fellow PeRFect Tennis readers, Did anyone spot me on TV/stream looking particularly gorgeous for our Fed? Or 90 year-old Sophie? Yes, I was there to witness his disappointing loss to Monfils unfortunately. I know Monte-Carlo Masters is not everyone’s liking especially for Fedfans. Monaco has never been on my bucket list as a place to visit, either. I’d …
