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 into Quarter Finals in Halle

Federer defeat Sousa Halle

Roger’s campaign is underway in Halle and he got off to a shaky but overall good start defeating Joao Sousa 6-7(8) 6-4 6-2 to move into the Quarter Finals.

A choke of epic proportions here as Federer dumped himself out the French Open with a 6-7(5), 7-6(3), 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 loss at the hands of future world number one and all time great Ernests Gulbis. Not a hugely disappointing loss but the manner of the defeat sucks. From being a set and 5-3 40-15 up Roger completely lost his ...

Federer Into Round 3 at Roland Garros

Federer Second Round Roland Garros 2014

Hey all, another straight sets affair for Roger as he defeated Argentinian Qualifier Diego Sebastian Schwartzman 6-3 6-4 6-4 to move into the third round. A comfortable scoreline but certainly not a one sided affair and I don’t think Federer bossed this one by any means. If anything his defensive ability was the difference as the Argentine played extremely aggressive ...

Federer Lacko French Open 2014

We’re underway in Paris and as I predicted this one was cruise control for Roger has he defeated Lukas Lacko 6-2 6-4 6-2 in 1 hour and 24 minutes to book his spot in the second round. Lacko was a tailor made opponent for Fed as he has no real weapons, a poor clay court record and hadn’t played a ...
