Happy Birthday to My Blog and a Giveaway!

Happy Birthday

Just a quick post to say that today, May 30th, marks the 1 year anniversary since I started this blog. To be honest it doesn’t even feel like 5 minutes ago that I bought the domain, installed WordPress and wrote my first post after Roger beat Wawrinka in the 4th round of the French Open. There were quite a few ... Read More »

Federer defeats Ungur in 4 sets to make Round 3 in Paris

Federer defeats Ungur

Another day, another record, which almost seems to happen in every match Federer plays in these days. After equaling Connors slam wins record on Monday, Roger has now broken it with 234 grand slam match wins. GOAT. Just like his 1st round match against Kamke there’s little to analyse. All I can really say is it was an ok performance ... Read More »

Federer Starts With Straight Sets Win in Paris

Federer defeats Kamke in 1st Round of French Open

Salut! Roger is underway in Paris with a fairly comfortably 6-2 7-5 6-3 win against German Tobias Kamke, it wasn’t vintage, it wasn’t pretty but in the end he got the job done. There’s not a whole lot to say about the match other than it being sloppy from Roger and Kamke gave a decent account of himself. Roger started ... Read More »

French Open 2012 Draw Analysis

French Open 2012 Draw Analysis

Well draw day, or D-day as I prefer to call it has been and gone and it’s best described as predictable. Nadal got a total cakewalk draw and yet again Roger was drawn in Djokovic’s half of the draw. Roger opens up his French Open campaign on Monday against Tobias Kamke, the German is ranked 77 and it should be ... Read More »

Djokovic Downs Federer in Rome

Djokovic defeats Federer in Rome

Well this blockbuster of a match definitely failed to live up to the hype as Djokovic took out Federer in straight sets in 1 hour 40 minutes. I had high hopes going into the match but after Roger dropped serve in the third game I just knew it was going to be one of those days. His timing wasn’t quite ... Read More »

Federer gives Seppi a Tennis Lesson in Rome

Federer-gives-Seppi-a-Tennis-Lesson-in-Rome-640x330

Forza Roger! Hard to describe this match other than saying it was just brilliance from Roger from start to finish. After the WTA delaying proceedings by almost an hour Roger came out and totally blew Seppi off the court. The first set was over in a flash and Seppi did well not to get bagelled, Roger clearly wanted to get ... Read More »

Federer tested against Ferrero in Rome

Federer defeats Ferrero

Ciaooo. Quick write up here on the Ferrero match, I predicted straight sets but it went the distance. This was the first time these two had met in 5 years which on the tour is a long time. Just like 9 out of the 12 previous meetings it was ultimately Roger showing his class when it mattered and finishing with ... Read More »

Federer Breezes Past Berlocq in Rome

Federer defeats Berlocq

Just over 48 hours after Roger took down the title in Madrid we’re back up in running in Rome. This is probably my least favourite tournament behind Monte Carlo and after enjoying the coverage in Madrid it feels like we’ve gone from nice and fast blue clay that’s good to watch on TV, to shit, slow, red clay that’s hard ...

Federer beats Berdych to Win in Madrid

Federer wins 3rd Title in Madrid

COME ON! Great performance from Roger here in a very tough match against Thomas Berdych. Fed had to use all his guile and experience to get himself over the line in 3 difficult sets and in doing so won his 20th ATP Masters 1000 title to equal the record set by some Spanish player. I was hoping that Roger would ... Read More »
