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.

Rotterdam Draw: Federer Faces Zemlja in Opening Round

Rotterdam Draw 2013

The Rotterdam draw is out! And Roger faces Grega Zemlja in his first match at the Ahoy which I’m guessing will be on Tuesday or Wednesday. It’s a nice start to the tournament for Federer as Zemlja is unlikely to cause too many problems. They have only met once before and that was in Doha in 2012 where Roger cruised ... Read More »

Roger Federer’s Outfit for Indian Wells 2013

Federer Indian Wells 2013 Outfit

Hey all, it’s just over a month away but I thought I’d post some pictures of Roger Federer’s outfit for Indian Wells. Gotta say this is my favourite colour combination of the year to date. I wasn’t a fan of the Pink used in Australia and even though this is effectively the same polo it’s a way better colour. Even ... Read More »

Should Roger Federer Play in the Davis Cup Again?

Federer Davis Cup Absentee

The 2013 Davis Cup is underway with a range of ties taking place across the world; notably Switzerland are playing without Federer in their tie against defending Champions the Czech Republic. Federer has been getting some stick from the fans & Swiss press about not playing, which I think is completely unjustified. To be honest, if you criticise Roger for ... Read More »

Does Tennis Have a Doping Problem?

Doping in Tennis

A couple of days ago I received a comment on the blog with regards to doping in tennis. It was very interesting and a couple of replies later I was pointed towards a site that has gone into a tremendous amount of depth about tennis, the drug testing procedures, players who have tested positive and all the various cases and ...

What to Expect for Roger Federer in 2013

Federer 2013 Season Expectations

I thought rather than doing a post about the predictable Australian Open final tomorrow I’d take a look at what we can expect for Roger for 2013 and what he is likely to achieve. Heading into Australia we had no real idea of what to expect, he hadn’t played any lead up tournaments so it was entering the unknown really. ... Read More »

Murray Defeats Federer in Australian Open Semi Final

Murray defeats Federer Australian Open 2013

Hey all, where to start? Not the dream end we all hoped for at this years Australian Open as Roger went down 6-4 6-7(5) 6-3 6-7(2) 6-2 to Andy Murray in the semi final. Never fun to see Fed lose but this is just one of those matches where winning was always an uphill task. As usual I had high ... Read More »

Federer Crushes Raonic in Melbourne

Federer def. Raonic Australian Open

Well how about that folks? An absolute clinic from Roger as he dispatched Milos Raonic 6-4 7-6(4) 6-2 in 1h 45 minutes. It was a JesusFed like display from start to finish and the Canadian never had a look in as Roger was far superior in all departments including the all important serve as he coasted over the line without ...

Djokovic Defeats Wawrinka in 5 Set Thriller

Djokovic def Wawrinka

Wow, it’s not often I post on matches where Federer hasn’t taken part but I felt like this one deserved a post of it’s own as fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka just went down 1-6 7-5 6-4 6-7(5-7) 12-10 in the fifth to defending champion Novak Djokovic. It was a crazy match, lasted over 5 hours and could have easily gone ... Read More »
