Wawrinka Defeats Federer to Win Monte Carlo

Federer Wawrinka Final

Not the fairytale end Fed fans wanted as Wawrinka cemented his place as the Swiss Number 1 with a convincing 4-6 7-6(5) 6-2 victory at the Monte Carlo Masters. I expected Fed to win this one comfortably but in a subdued final he made too many errors and looked flat throughout. Stan took full advantage and hit some meaty blows ... Read More »

Federer defeat Djokovic Monte Carlo

Boom! Big win here for the GOAT as he took down Djokovic 7-5 6-2 to setup an all Swiss Final in Monte Carlo. I wasn’t sure what to expect going in and even though Djokovic faded badly in the second set with some sort of wrist injury he lost to the better player on the day. The press are going ...

Federer defeat Tsonga Monte Carlo

Big test of Federer’s resolve here as he came from a set to defeat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 2-6, 7-6(6), 6-1 to make the semi finals in Monte Carlo. For a while out there it looked like a French Open 2013 flashback but Roger hung tough, didn’t get too frustrated with missed chances and eventually served his way across the line. It ...

Federer Rallies Past Rosol into Monte Carlo Quarter Final

Federe Monte Carlo Defeat Rosol

Another day in Monte Carlo and another sub 60 minute match for the GOAT as he saw off Lukas Rosol 6-4 6-1 in 57 minutes. It wasn’t as clinical as the performance against Stepanek but once Federer got into the groove midway through the first set he pulled away; winning 91 per cent of his first serve points and hitting ...

Federer Makes Blistering Start in Monte Carlo

Federer Defeat Stepanek Monte Carlo 2014

We’re underway in Monte Carlo and Roger got off to a blistering start defeating Radek Stepanek 6-1 6-2 in just 51 minutes. It was cold, breezy and Federer’s first match on clay since Gstaad last year but he was in fine fettle from the first point right through to the last. The Swiss converted all 4 of his break points ... Read More »

Monte Carlo Draw: Federer and Djokovic in Same Half

Monte Carlo Draw 2014

The draw for the 2014 Rolex Monte Carlo Masters is out and Federer has landed in the same half as Djokovic so they’re set to meet in the Semi Finals. Still a bit of a surprise Roger has decided to play here but I’m looking forward to seeing how he fairs on the dirt. His last outing on the surface ... Read More »

Federer Accepts Wildcard into Monte Carlo

Fedrer Monte Carlo Wildcard 2014

Big surprise here as Roger has accepted a wildcard into Monte Carlo. Having not played the tournament since 2011 I am surprised he’s decided to do so this year. The tournament always keeps a wildcard available to him until the last minute but usually he never takes it. The question I have does he know he’s going to be missing ... Read More »

Roger Federer’s Outfit for Madrid Masters and Rome 2014

Federer Madrid Outfit for 2014

It’s about 4 weeks until Roger’s back in action on the ATP Tour but his outfit for Madrid and Rome is already available from most of the online tennis stores. First impression are it’s ok but nothing special, not something I plan on buying. Nike have opted for the V neck style rather than the polo which he’s worn since ... Read More »

Nishikori Ends Federer’s Miami Run

Federer Serve Nishikori Miami 2014

Hey all, bit of a surprise loss here as Roger crashed out at the hands of Kei Nishikori 3-6 7-5 6-4 under the flood lights at Crandon Park. I thought after strolling past Gasquet we’d be seeing another straight sets victory but it wasn’t to be. All comes down to a poor serving display from Fed coupled with solid baseline ... Read More »

Federer Schools Gasquet in Miami

Federer Schools Gasquet

Another Swiss beatdown here as Roger brushed aside Richard Gasquet 6-1 6-2 in 49 minutes to move into the Quarter Finals. I thought pre match Gasquet was going to put up a fight on a court that suits his game but after looking good in his opening game Roger completely dominated things. After getting the early break the Frenchman went ... Read More »
