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.

Shanghai Draw 2013 – Federer Could Face Djokovic in Quarters

Federer Shanghai Draw 2013

The Shanghai Rolex Masters 2013 draw is out and it looks fairly decent from Roger’s perspective as he’s landed in Djokovic’s Quarter and has some potentially nice matchups should he make the latter stages. It’s of course the first time he’s played since the US Open where he played a terrible match vs. Robredo so nothing is a given in ... Read More »

Is Federer Still Using The Pro Staff 90 in Shanghai?

Federer Pro Staff 90 in Shanghai

Hey all, Roger has finally arrived in Shanghai after lying low in Dubai for the past few weeks since the loss to Robredo. He’s been practicing on Centre Court the Qizhong Forest Sports City Arena and it looks like he’s still using the trusty Pro Staff 90 rather than the 98 square inch model he used in Hamburg and Gstaad. ...

Roger Federer’s Outfit for the Shanghai Masters 2013

Roger Federer Outfit Shanghia Rolex Masters 2013

Here’s Federer’s outfit for the Shanghai 2013 Rolex Masters, it’s basically just a rehashed version of his US Open outfit with red accent colours rather than the blues he wore in New York. There’s hardly any pictures of this floating around and I’m surprised that none of the retailers have started stocking it yet with the tournament only a couple ... Read More »

Is Tennis Too One Dimensional?

Is Tennis Too One Dimensional

Hey guys, I’m back after a brief hiatus after Roger’s loss at the US Open to Robredo. I didn’t really watch much after his defeat mainly due to the time difference but also because I just lost interest as the outcome of the tournament was a foregone conclusion. The final as we all know was won by Nadal in 4 ... Read More »

Thoughts on Federer’s Loss to Robredo

Robredo defeats Federer US Open

Hey guys, I’ve been a little delayed in getting this post out due to the late finish on Monday and then playing tennis myself yesterday evening so it’s not quite fresh in the aftermath of Roger’s loss to Robredo. That’s probably a good thing though as it’s sometimes good to let the dust settle on tough losses especially when fans ... Read More »

Federer Makes Light Work of Mannarino at US Open

Federer Sweeps Aside Adrian Mannarino US Open

Another routine match for Roger has he swept aside Adrian Mannarino 6-3 6-0 6-2 in just 81 minutes to book his place in the 4th round against Tommy Robredo who defeated Dan Evans in 4 sets. As I predicted Mannarino had little to offer and after a fairly competitive first set he folded completely as Roger piled on the pressure ... Read More »

Roger Federer’s Best Matches at the US Open

Federer's Best US Open Match

On my last blog post I got a comment regarding the fact that American sports broadcasting companies don’t really talk about Federer’s achievements at Flushing Meadows. I find that quite strange considering he’s played so many great matches on Arthur Ashe, has the best ever W/L record in New York of all time and has generally entertained millions of people ...

Federer Defeats Berlocq 6-3 6-2 6-1 at US Open

Federer defeats Berlocq US Open

Just a brief post from me as Roger made serene progress into the third round defeating Carlos Berlocq 6-3 6-2 6-1 in just over 1 hour and 30 minutes. It was a very routine match and just like the one against Grega Žemlja on Tuesday he was never in any trouble. For both the fans and Federer himself I think ... Read More »

Federer Makes Winning Start at US Open

Federer defeats Zemlja US Open 2013

After having his match cancelled on Monday evening due to inclement weather Roger finally got on court yesterday afternoon and made a winning start defeating Grega Zemlja 6-3 6-2 7-5 to setup a second round tie against Argentinian Carlos Berlocq. It was the first time we’ve seen Fed since his Quarter Final loss to Nadal in Cincinnati but as expected ... Read More »
