A good day in North Rhine-Westphalia for Roger has he won a record 7th Halle title defeating Alejandro Falla 7-6(2) 7-6(3) in 1 hour 30 minutes.

Roger’s campaign is underway in Halle and he got off to a shaky but overall good start defeating Joao Sousa 6-7(8) 6-4 6-2 to move into the Quarter Finals.

Halle Draw 2014

Hey all, Halle starts on Monday and it’s a fairly strong lineup for such a small tournament featuring Federer, Raonic, Haas, Youzhny, Janowicz and Gasquet.

Federer vs. Matosevic Brisbane 2014

Well it doesn’t get any easier than that does it? 6-1 6-1 in just 57 minutes as Roger made serene progress into the semi finals where he’ll face Frenchman Jeremy Chardy. I perhaps gave Matosevic too much credit in my pre match prediction of 6-4 6-2 as he completely failed to turn up today and was simply outclassed. Whether it ... Read More »

Federer Dumped Out in Gstaad; Hits Rock Bottom

Federer Loses in Gstaad vs. Brands

More tough news for Fed fans as Roger crashed out in his opening match in Gstaad losing to Daniel Brands in straight sets 6-3 6-4.
