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 Schools Starace in Rome

Federer Schools Starace in Rome 2013

Buonasera! What an absolute clinic that was from Roger as he swept past Potito Starace 6-1 6-2 in just 51 minutes. Tough to put into words how well he played in this one as it was such a fluid performance and Starace didn’t even play badly yet he got taken apart. As a fan you couldn’t ask for a better ...

Promising Draw in Rome for Federer

Internazionali BNL d'Italia 2013 Draw

The good thing about the Mutua Madrid Open is that Rome immediately follows it meaning there’s little time for Roger, or his fan to dwell on his loss to Nishikori earlier in the week. The semi finals in Madrid haven’t even been completed yet and the Internazionali BNL d’Italia 2013 Draw is already out, whoop! Not only that it’s a ... Read More »

Federer Crashes to Nishikori in Madrid

Nishikori def. Federer

Wow well what a joke of a performance that was. First of all let me say I’m not shocked by this defeat just majorly disappointed; I had Roger to win in straights without too much of a problem but he ended going out in 3 with another total whimper of a performance in the final set. Since Australia Fed has ... Read More »

Federer Opens Title Defence with Win vs. Stepanek

Federer def. Stepanek Madrid 2013

Finally! The wait is over, the return of the GOAT onto a tennis court and he didn’t disappoint as he cruised past Radek Stepanek 6-3 6-3 to start his title defence in good fashion and get back to winning ways on the ATP tour after an 8 week break. The match itself wasn’t high quality and there weren’t really many ... Read More »

Federer Raring To Go in Madrid; Brennwald Apologises

Federer Mutua Madrid Open 2013

Hey all, Madrid is underway and I think we’ll be seeing Roger on either Tuesday (tomorrow) or Wednesday. It’s been a long wait so let’s hope he delivers. He’ll be in action first against Radek Stepanek who disposed of Tomic in straight sets, I thought that would be the case as Tomic is slumping yet again when he’s outside of ... Read More »

Madrid Open Draw – No Real Surprises

Madrid Masters 2013 Draw

The Madrid Draw is out and surprise surprise Federer and Nadal ended up in the same half as pretty much the whole world expected. Fortunately they’re not in the same Quarter like we saw in Indian Wells this time their seeded to meet each other in the Semi Finals which I think makes it more interesting. Obviously it seems that ... Read More »

Brennwald Causing More Drama; Nadal Announces He’s Playing Basel

Basel 2013 Tennis

Hey guys, just a quick post about news from off the courts this week as Nadal has announced he’s playing the Swiss Indoors in Basel and tournament organiser Roger Brennwald has once again started stirring up a media storm with what appears to be his own personal anti-Federer campaign. I mentioned my dislike for Brennwald a couple of times in ... Read More »

Djokovic Schools Nadal in Monte Carlo

Djokovic Schools Nadal in Monte Carlo

I thought I’d do a quick update on Monte Carlo as an ultimately boring tournament (due to no Federer) actually turned into a rather interesting one as Nadal was once again schooled by his master Novak Djokovic in the final. I can’t tell you guys how much I enjoy seeing Djokovic give Nadal a beat down in a championship decider, ... Read More »

Who Says Roger Federer is not Clutch?

Federer Clutch

As a Federer fan it’s very easy to only remember matches where Roger threw them away when he had multiple chances to win, the 2 US Open Semi Finals, the Rome final of 2006 and the Australian Open final of 2009 all immediately spring to mind. It often leads people to think Federer is no good in the big moments ... Read More »

Federer Practicing in Switzerland 2013

I’ve been saving them for a while now when I see them and have amassed quite a collection that you can see below. It might take a while to load as there’s quite ... Read More »
