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 Destroys Davydenko in Dubai

Federer defeats Davydenko in Dubai

Hey all, what a stellar performance from Federer tonight as he completely outplayed Nikolay Davydenko to move seamlessly into the Dubai Semi Finals. I thought Roger would win but might be in for a tough ride tonight; yet as it turned out this was a complete clinic from the GOAT who gave Davydenko a tennis lesson out there tonight with ...

Federer Routines Granollers 6-3 6-4 in Dubai

Federer Backhand Precisions vs. Granollers

Complete opposite of the match against Jaziri on Monday as Roger rolled past Marcel Granollers 6-3, 6-4 to setup a quarter final clash with Nikolay Davydenko. After struggling for rhythm in the first round this was a much better display from Federer and despite a couple of moments where he almost relinquished his serve he played far more solidly to ...

Federer Makes Winning Start in Dubai

Federer Defeats Jaziri in Dubai

We’re underway in Dubai albeit not in spectacular fashion as Federer had to shake off a slow start to beat Tunisian Wild Card Malek Jazir 5-7, 6-0, 6-2. It was Roger’s first match back since his loss to Benneteau in Rotterdam so I expected some elements of rust but never in a million years thought he’d lose the first set. ... Read More »

Dubai Draw: Federer Faces Jaziri in 1st Round

Dubai 2013 Draw - Federer Faces Jaziri

Hey all, we’re finally edging closer to seeing Federer back in action again as the draw for the 2013 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships came out today with wild card Malek Jaziri getting a dream draw against Roger in the first round. There’s quite a few big names in the draw with Djokovic, Berdych, Del Potro and Tsonga all turning ... Read More »

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 »

The Many Racquets of Roger Federer

Racquets Used by Roger Federer

Inspired by a recent comment from a reader I thought I’d look into the various models of racquet Roger Federer has used since he went pro way back in 1998. Of course this is all open to interpretation, as there’s various opinions on whether or not Roger uses the racquet that is sold via the various tennis retailers. Some people ... 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 »

Roger Federer’s Outfit for Indian Wells 2013

Federer Indian Wells 2013 Outfit

Hey all, it’s just over a month away but I thought I’d post some pictures of Roger Federer’s outfit for Indian Wells. Gotta say this is my favourite colour combination of the year to date. I wasn’t a fan of the Pink used in Australia and even though this is effectively the same polo it’s a way better colour. Even ... Read More »
