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.

Relentless Nadal Defeats Federer in Cincinnati

Nadal defeats Federer Cincinnati

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. I personally didn’t give Roger much hope based on his own form and how ... Read More »

Federer Fights Back to Defeat Haas in Cincinnati

Federer defeat Haas Cincinnati

Finally some more good news for Fed fans as Roger fought back from a first set breadstick and a break down in the second to defeat Tommy Haas 1-6 7-5 6-3 and setup a potential Quarter Final showdown with Rafael Nadal. It wasn’t a vintage performance from Roger by any means, in fact it was close to being a disaster ... Read More »

Federer Defeats Kohlschreiber in Cincinnati

Federer defeat Kohlschreiber

Hey all, as you will all be aware Roger got his hard court swing underway with a straight sets victory over Philip Kohlschreiber under the bright lights of Cincinnati which was good to see. It’s the first time we’ve seen him in action since Gstaad due to his withdrawal from Montreal and after 3 tough losses in under a month ... Read More »

Announcing the Winners of My Roger Federer Quiz

Get Your Swoosh On

A couple of months ago I ran a competition for a chance to win 5 RF caps by completing a Federer quiz to celebrate the 2nd Birthday of the blog. It’s dragged on for a while as I’ve run into problems sourcing the hats and sorting out worldwide shipping. I was let down by where I planned to get them ... Read More »

Cincinnati Draw 2013 – Can Federer Defend his Title?

Cincinnati Draw 2013

Hey guys, the draw for Cincinnati is out and there’s no respite for Roger as he’s landed in another tough draw where he’ll have probably have to face Nadal, Muray and Djokovic if he’s to successfully defend his title. I guess on paper this is the toughest of draws possible but truth be told I’m not too bothered, he’s going ... Read More »

The Story of Federer’s 2013 Season So Far

Federer 2013 So Far

Seen as though there’s nothing much to blog about, most Fed fans seem to be on a downer about Roger’s back and a few of you have asked me to do a newer version of my GIF post (I was always reluctant as we all know sequels are never as good :)) I thought I’d do a little compilation of ...

Federer Withdraws from Roger’s Cup in Montreal

Federer Withdraws from Montreal 2013

Hey guys, just a quick post about Roger’s decision to withdraw from Montreal which all in all isn’t a surprising decision after he revealed he was struggling with his back after the loss to Brands in Gstaad. I’m personally glad he decided to skip it as he must ensure he’s in good health for both the US Open and the ... Read More »

Federer Dumped Out in Gstaad; Hits Rock Bottom

Federer Loses in Gstaad vs. Brands

More tough news for Fed fans as Roger crashed out in his opening match in Gstaad losing to Daniel Brands in straight sets 6-3 6-4. Not completely unexpected as Brands is a tricky opponent but this was another uninspiring performance from Roger and begs the question is he at rock bottom right now? It’s certainly close! He looked flat throughout ... Read More »

Federer Plans to Stick With New Racquet

Federer Sticking with New Racquet

After Roger’s defeat in Hamburg I noticed a few Federer & Tennis Fans suggesting his change of racquet could be a bad idea as they can’t see how it has improved his game yet and he should go back to the Pro Staff 90. I find this just a bit over the top and I can’t believe that some fans ... Read More »

Federer Crashes to Delbonis in Hamburg

Federer Crashes to Delbonis in Hamburg

Ah well not the outcome I expected as Roger lost in straight sets to Federico Delbonis to crash out at the Semi Final stage in Hamburg. After looking very scratchy against Mayer I wasn’t sure what to expect today and it turned out he was yet again below par making a string of poor errors. As for Delbonis he played ... Read More »
