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.

Is Tennis Too One Dimensional?

Is Tennis Too One Dimensional

Hey guys, I’m back after a brief hiatus after Roger’s loss at the US Open to Robredo. I didn’t really watch much after his defeat mainly due to the time difference but also because I just lost interest as the outcome of the tournament was a foregone conclusion. The final as we all know was won by Nadal in 4 ... Read More »

Thoughts on Federer’s Loss to Robredo

Robredo defeats Federer US Open

Hey guys, I’ve been a little delayed in getting this post out due to the late finish on Monday and then playing tennis myself yesterday evening so it’s not quite fresh in the aftermath of Roger’s loss to Robredo. That’s probably a good thing though as it’s sometimes good to let the dust settle on tough losses especially when fans ... Read More »

Federer Makes Light Work of Mannarino at US Open

Federer Sweeps Aside Adrian Mannarino US Open

Another routine match for Roger has he swept aside Adrian Mannarino 6-3 6-0 6-2 in just 81 minutes to book his place in the 4th round against Tommy Robredo who defeated Dan Evans in 4 sets. As I predicted Mannarino had little to offer and after a fairly competitive first set he folded completely as Roger piled on the pressure ... Read More »

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 6-3 6-2 6-1 at US Open

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 »

After having his match cancelled on Monday evening due to inclement weather Roger finally got on court yesterday afternoon and made a winning start defeating Grega Zemlja 6-3 6-2 7-5 to setup a second round tie against Argentinian Carlos Berlocq. It was the first time we’ve seen Fed since his Quarter Final loss to Nadal in Cincinnati but as expected ... Read More »

The US Open draw is out and the big news most predictable news is that Roger could potentially meet Rafael Nadal in the Quarter Finals which would be their first ever meeting at Flushing Meadows. The biggest shock is seeing the Number #7 seeding next to Roger’s name as he hasn’t been outside the top 4 at a slam for ... Read More »

Help Improve peRFect Tennis

No I’m not asking for money but I am asking for your feedback. Tennis doesn’t stand still so for the same reason neither can this blog. Roger is planning on upgrading his equipment after the US Open to larger racquet frame so I thought I’d try and improve this site too. I have a few ideas of my own but ... Read More »
