Federer Into Round 3 at Roland Garros

Federer Second Round Roland Garros 2014

Hey all, another straight sets affair for Roger as he defeated Argentinian Qualifier Diego Sebastian Schwartzman 6-3 6-4 6-4 to move into the third round. A comfortable scoreline but certainly not a one sided affair and I don’t think Federer bossed this one by any means. If anything his defensive ability was the difference as the Argentine played extremely aggressive ... Read More »

Federer Cruises Past Lacko at Roland Garros

Federer Lacko French Open 2014

We’re underway in Paris and as I predicted this one was cruise control for Roger has he defeated Lukas Lacko 6-2 6-4 6-2 in 1 hour and 24 minutes to book his spot in the second round. Lacko was a tailor made opponent for Fed as he has no real weapons, a poor clay court record and hadn’t played a ... Read More »

The draw for the French is out and no surprises here as Federer landed in Djokovic’s half along with Berdych and Raonic. Nadal, Ferrer, Wawrinka and Murray are all in the other half with play beginning on Sunday. If things go to seeding we’ll be getting a Djokodal final which the tournament organisers, the majority of fans and the money ... Read More »

Djokovic Takes Down Nadal to Win Rome Title

Djokovic defeats Nadal Rome 2014

It’s been a quiet week with Roger losing early in Rome but with Djokovic dismissing Raonic and Nadal schooling Dimitrov to setup another mouthwatering final I decided to tune in. As usual I wasn’t disappointed as Djokovic came from a set down to defeat Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-3 and win his 5th Masters 1000 tournament out of the last 6 ... Read More »

Chardy Upsets Federer in Rome

Chardy defeats Federer Rome

Hopefully Roger booked a short stay apartment in Rome this week as he made a premature exit at the hands of Jeremy Chardy who defeated the Swiss 1-6 6-3 7-6(6) to record only his eighth ever win against a top 10 player. I was predicting 2 close sets for this one but in windy conditions Roger’s game went missing after ... Read More »

Rome Masters Draw 2014 – Federer Expected to Play

Rome Masters Draw 2014

The draw for the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome is out and we’re still in the dark as to whether Roger will be making an appearance. According to his agent Tony Godsick he will make a last minute decision and should everything be running smoothly with Leo and Lenny then he will most likely play. I personally think he’ll definitely ... Read More »

Roger Federer’s Outfit for the French Open 2014

Federer French Open Outfit 2014

Hey all, for the first time ever it looks like we might have a dedicated Federer Masters Clay Masters 1000 outfit that only sees the light of day in Monte Carlo. That could change if Roger plays Rome but that currently looks unlikely following the birth of Leo and Lenny so I thought I’d post Roger’s French Open attire early. ... Read More »

Madrid Masters Draw 2014

Madrid Masters Draw 2014

Hey all, the Madrid Masters draw is out and so far it looks like Federer will be playing. Many fans have been expecting the arrival of a new baby which would keep him out of the tournament but he’s in the draw and most likely en route to the Caja Magica this weekend. Draw wise it’s another reasonable one and ... Read More »

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 »
