Federer defeats Mahut to Progress in Paris

Federer def. Mahut

Jeu, set et match Federer 6-3 4-6 6-2 7-5. Another dropped set but again another fairly comfortable victory on Phillipe Chatriere. I can’t really weigh Roger’s matches up at the minute, he’s playing like he plays in Exhibitions matches. I’m not sure if it’s him taking it all too easy because his draw has been a total dream or his ... Read More »

Federer defeats Ungur in 4 sets to make Round 3 in Paris

Federer defeats Ungur

Another day, another record, which almost seems to happen in every match Federer plays in these days. After equaling Connors slam wins record on Monday, Roger has now broken it with 234 grand slam match wins. GOAT. Just like his 1st round match against Kamke there’s little to analyse. All I can really say is it was an ok performance ... Read More »

Federer Starts With Straight Sets Win in Paris

Federer defeats Kamke in 1st Round of French Open

Salut! Roger is underway in Paris with a fairly comfortably 6-2 7-5 6-3 win against German Tobias Kamke, it wasn’t vintage, it wasn’t pretty but in the end he got the job done. There’s not a whole lot to say about the match other than it being sloppy from Roger and Kamke gave a decent account of himself. Roger started ... Read More »

French Open 2012 Draw Analysis

French Open 2012 Draw Analysis

Well draw day, or D-day as I prefer to call it has been and gone and it’s best described as predictable. Nadal got a total cakewalk draw and yet again Roger was drawn in Djokovic’s half of the draw. Roger opens up his French Open campaign on Monday against Tobias Kamke, the German is ranked 77 and it should be ... Read More »

Federer’s Outfit for the French Open 2012

Roland Garros

Here’s Roger’s outfit for this years French Open. It’s unlike anything else he’s worn at Roland Garros before and looks more akin to something he’d usually wear at the US Open. It’s the exact same style as his Madrid and Rome outfit just in a new anthracite colour. I’d say it’s closer to black than grey and has a carbon/charcoal ... Read More »

Could Federer apply Henman like tactics to win the French Open?

Tim Henman Clay Court Tactics

Way back in 2004 Tim Henman surprised the tennis world by making the Semi finals of the French Open. Other than Wimbledon, Henman had never been past the 4th round of slam and the grass courts were widely regarded as his best chance of winning a major. In fact, he’d gained the title of perennial underachiever at the All England ... Read More »

Nadal def. Federer in disappointing French Open Final

Nadal def. Federer French Open 2011

Well, I suppose a Nadal win was to be expected. I actually fancied a Roger upset but it just wasn't to be. But still, I have to view the tournament on the whole as a positive - Federer is still definitely a force in tennis and is surely a threat at the 2 remaining Grand Slams. I actually think he'll win Wimbledon. Read More »

Federer ends the Djokovic Streak in epic Semi Final

Fed defeat Djokovic French Open 2011

Without a shadow of a doubt the best match of the season so far, I’d always been optimistic that Federer could win this match and he did just that! From the very first game right through to the Ace down the T in the 4th set tiebreak that sealed the win, the level was unbelievably high. As I discussed previously, ... Read More »

Federer into Semis after defeating Monfils 6-4 6-3 7-6

Federer def. Monfils

Although my set score prediction wasn’t accurate, my straight sets one was and Roger ended up coming through pretty comfortably in the end. Despite a few moments where he lost concentration and dropped serve, this was a solid match from Federer. We might not have seen the ‘Federer Magic’ moments like we’ve come to expect, but in difficult windy conditions ... Read More »
