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 Overwhelms Dimitrov in Basel

Federer defeats Dimitrov Basel 2013

Hey all, seems there is some life in the old GOAT yet as he defeated Grigor Dimitrov 6-3 7-6(2) to move into the semi finals in Basel. It was a much better display from Roger than we’ve seen recently and you got the feeling he was right up for this one. He alluded to that with a tweet earlier in ... Read More »

Federer Fights Back to Defeat Istomin in Basel

Federer defeats Istomin in Basel

A big win for Roger as he came from a set down to beat Denis Istomin in Basel and move into the Quarter Finals. On current form Istomin was always going to be a test and it almost went badly wrong for Federer as had he not held serve at a key moment in the final set the outcome could ... Read More »

Federer Sees Off Mannarino in Basel

Federer defeats Mannarino in Basel

Hey guys, Roger is finally back in action and got his Basel campaign underway with a win defeating Adrian Mannarino 6-4 6-2 in 1 hour and 11 minutes.

The Basel draw is out and Roger has landed in the same half as Tomáš Berdych, could face Grigor Dimitrov in the Quarter finals but first has to see off Adrian Mannarino in his opening match at the St. Jakobshalle arena.

Roger Federer – Hope Dies Last

Federer Hope Dies Last

It’s been a while since I’ve dedicated an entire post to a video but today a new one from 1893stuttgartschwabe was released titled: Roger Federer – Hope Dies Last and it’s one of the best I’ve seen in a while. I think it’s been released at just right the time and the title pretty much sums up where we are ... Read More »

Shanghai Turns Into Shanglow For Federer

Monfils defeats Federer Shanghai

Hey all, another Masters 1000 comes to a disappointing and premature end as Roger lost to Monfils 6-4 6-7(5) 6-3 to bow out in the last 16 for the second tournament in row. It’s meant his World Tour Finals qualification hopes have taken another hit but perhaps more worryingly this was another telling loss at the hands of an opponent ... Read More »

Roger Federer’s Shanghai campaign got off to an almost hiccup free start as he defeated Andreas Seppi 6-4 6-3 to move into the third round where he’ll meat Gael Monfils.
