Rotterdam Recap: Federer Crashes to Benneteau

Federer Crashes to Benneteau in Rotterdam

Hey all, I’m back from a weekend in Rotterdam where as most of you know I didn’t get to see Federer play after he clowned up against Benneteau in the Quarter Finals. A little disappointing that he couldn’t make the Semi’s but what can you do? I didn’t see any of the match live as I arrived quite late and ... Read More »

Federer Defeats De Bakker to Advance in Rotterdam

Federer Routines De Bakker in Rotterdam

Another routine win for Roger as he cruised past Thiemo De Bakker 6-3 6-4 to make serene progress to the Quarter Finals in Rotterdam. As I predicted this was a routine match right from the word go; Federer served first and held to love and that’s always a good way to start a match. At 1-1 De Bakker made deuce ... Read More »

Federer Routines Zemlja 6-3 6-1 in Rotterdam

Federer def Zemlja in Rotterdam

We’re underway in Rotterdam and Federer got off to a routine start dispatching Grega Zemlja 6-3 6-1 in just 58 minutes to setup a second round tie with Dutchman Thiemo de Bakker. It’s the first time Roger has stepped on court since his loss to Murray at the Australian Open back in January so I was obviously expecting a little ... Read More »

Rotterdam Draw: Federer Faces Zemlja in Opening Round

Rotterdam Draw 2013

The Rotterdam draw is out! And Roger faces Grega Zemlja in his first match at the Ahoy which I’m guessing will be on Tuesday or Wednesday. It’s a nice start to the tournament for Federer as Zemlja is unlikely to cause too many problems. They have only met once before and that was in Doha in 2012 where Roger cruised ... Read More »

Federer’s Outfit for Rotterdam 2013

Federer's outfit for the ABN Amro Rotterdam Open 2013

Well Rotterdam might be over a month away (starts on the 11th February) but I thought I’d post Federer’s outfit for it early so you guys can check it out. It’s the exact same design as his Australian Open 2013 polo just in a much nicer blue colour or as Nike have called it ‘Neo Turq’ which I’m guessing is ... Read More »

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. I hadn’t seen Del Potro play all week, but you only have to look the scoreline in his match against ... Read More »

Federer shows fight to make Rotterdam Final

Federer def. Davydenko in Rotterdam

Whoopa! This was the funnest match I’ve seen in a while and required Roger to call upon all his fight and competitive spirit to book his place in the Rotterdam final against Juan Martin Del Potro. Unlike some, I haven’t been placing great importance on this tournament, but seeing Roger come back from a set and a break down to ... Read More »

Federer defeats Nieminen in Rotterdam

Federer def. Nieminen in Rotterdam

Another quick write up here after Roger made it into the Semi Finals in Rotterdam beating Jarkko Nieminen 7-5 7-6(2). It was an average match and Roger made tough work of it but ultimately had too much for the Fin, extending his record against him to 13-0. In terms of the write up, I’m struggling to remember many memorable moments ... Read More »
