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 »

Federer Dispatches De Bakker to Setup Gasquet Tie

Casual Volley Federer De Bakker

Imperious tennis again from the GOAT here as he cruised past Thiemo De Bakker 6-3 6-3 in just over an hour. As I predicted De Bakker didn’t have the credentials to make a challenge but what was more surprising was how easy Fed made it look. He was on cruise control out there and only lost 7 points on his ... Read More »

Federer Rolls Past Karlovic in Miami

Federer Miami 2014

Hey all, Miami is underway and Roger rolled his way into the third round defeating Ivo Karlovic 6-4 7-6(4) in 1 hour and 14 minutes. This will be the briefest of posts because the match was of course dominated by serve and had few rallies. Always hard to assess Fed’s level in these type of encounters but the fact he ...

Another sweet performance here from the GOAT has he booked his place in his 5th Indian Wells defeating Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-3 6-1. In a match that lasted just over an hour it was complete one way traffic as Roger outclassed the Ukrainian in every department. Dolgpolov has been in fine fettle this week defeating Nadal and Raonic to make his ... Read More »

Federer Strolls into Quarter Finals at Indian Wells

Federer Haas Indian Wells 2014

Best match of the tournament so far for Federer as he swept aside Tommy Haas 6-4 6-4 to move into the Quarter Finals in Indian Wells. I said in my prediction that if Fed hit 65% of first serves and struck the backhand well he’d win 6-4 6-4. He hit bang on 65% of first serves and won 6-4 6-4 ... Read More »

Federer Brushes Off Tursunov Challenge in Indian Wells

Federer Tursunov Indian Wells

A tough battle here for Roger in the Indian Wells sun as he saw off Dmitry Turusnov 7-6(7) 7-6(2) to move into the fourth round where he’ll face Tommy Haas. It was another tricky match where Fed had to use his experience and focus to cross the line. Couple of blips when he could have been home and dry but ... Read More »

Federer Indian Wells Mathieu

We’re up and running in Indian Wells and Roger made a solid start defeating Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-2 7-6(5) to move into the 3rd round. It wasn’t the prettiest match to watch but I thought Roger was the worthy winner and did well to hold off Mathieu’s late charge. It could have been a cleaner match from Federer’s perspective I think ... Read More »
