Roger Federer’s Best Matches at the US Open

Federer's Best US Open Match

On my last blog post I got a comment regarding the fact that American sports broadcasting companies don’t really talk about Federer’s achievements at Flushing Meadows. I find that quite strange considering he’s played so many great matches on Arthur Ashe, has the best ever W/L record in New York of all time and has generally entertained millions of people ...

Federer defeats Berlocq US Open

Just a brief post from me as Roger made serene progress into the third round defeating Carlos Berlocq 6-3 6-2 6-1 in just over 1 hour and 30 minutes. It was a very routine match and just like the one against Grega Žemlja on Tuesday he was never in any trouble. For both the fans and Federer himself I think ... Read More »

Well what a match that was as Roger put in a great performance to just fall short as Nadal defeated him 5-7 6-4 6-3 to extend his unbeaten run on hard courts even further and put himself in the driving seat ahead of the US Open.
