Courtside at Monte Carlo: A Fed Fans Perspective

Federer Monte Carlo Country Club

Hey all, I’m back blogging after a short trip away and with Madrid still 7 days away I’ve been struggling for blog post ideas to fill the void. Luckily when I got back I had an email from Wanda in my inbox with a great recap of Monte Carlo. It’s always great to get courtside reports from fans who have ... Read More »

Wawrinka Defeats Federer to Win Monte Carlo

Federer Wawrinka Final

Not the fairytale end Fed fans wanted as Wawrinka cemented his place as the Swiss Number 1 with a convincing 4-6 7-6(5) 6-2 victory at the Monte Carlo Masters. I expected Fed to win this one comfortably but in a subdued final he made too many errors and looked flat throughout. Stan took full advantage and hit some meaty blows ... Read More »

Federer Sets Up All Swiss Final in Monte Carlo

Federer defeat Djokovic Monte Carlo

Boom! Big win here for the GOAT as he took down Djokovic 7-5 6-2 to setup an all Swiss Final in Monte Carlo. I wasn’t sure what to expect going in and even though Djokovic faded badly in the second set with some sort of wrist injury he lost to the better player on the day. The press are going ...

Federer Wins 950th Career Match; Defeats Tsonga in Monte Carlo

Federer defeat Tsonga Monte Carlo

Big test of Federer’s resolve here as he came from a set to defeat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 2-6, 7-6(6), 6-1 to make the semi finals in Monte Carlo. For a while out there it looked like a French Open 2013 flashback but Roger hung tough, didn’t get too frustrated with missed chances and eventually served his way across the line. It ...

Federe Monte Carlo Defeat Rosol

Another day in Monte Carlo and another sub 60 minute match for the GOAT as he saw off Lukas Rosol 6-4 6-1 in 57 minutes. It wasn’t as clinical as the performance against Stepanek but once Federer got into the groove midway through the first set he pulled away; winning 91 per cent of his first serve points and hitting ...

Federer Makes Blistering Start in Monte Carlo

Federer Defeat Stepanek Monte Carlo 2014

We’re underway in Monte Carlo and Roger got off to a blistering start defeating Radek Stepanek 6-1 6-2 in just 51 minutes. It was cold, breezy and Federer’s first match on clay since Gstaad last year but he was in fine fettle from the first point right through to the last. The Swiss converted all 4 of his break points ... Read More »

Monte Carlo Draw: Federer and Djokovic in Same Half

Monte Carlo Draw 2014

The draw for the 2014 Rolex Monte Carlo Masters is out and Federer has landed in the same half as Djokovic so they’re set to meet in the Semi Finals. Still a bit of a surprise Roger has decided to play here but I’m looking forward to seeing how he fairs on the dirt. His last outing on the surface ... Read More »

Federer Accepts Wildcard into Monte Carlo

Fedrer Monte Carlo Wildcard 2014

Big surprise here as Roger has accepted a wildcard into Monte Carlo. Having not played the tournament since 2011 I am surprised he’s decided to do so this year. The tournament always keeps a wildcard available to him until the last minute but usually he never takes it. The question I have does he know he’s going to be missing ... 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 »
