Huge fan of Roger Federer - I'll pretty much try and watch all his matches from Grand Slam level right down to ATP 250. When I'm not watching or tweeting about tennis I play regularly myself and use this blog to share my thoughts on Fed and tennis in general.

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 »

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 ...

Miami Draw 2014 – Federer Set To Play

Federer in Miami

It’s non stop on the ATP Tour as just a day after the Indian Wells final the Miami Draw is out. Looks like a good one for Fed on paper and we can expect him to play his first match on Friday. I don’t know whether he’s fully confirmed to participate yet but as you can tell from the picture ... Read More »
