Shanghai Turns Into Shanglow For Federer

Monfils defeats Federer Shanghai

Hey all, another Masters 1000 comes to a disappointing and premature end as Roger lost to Monfils 6-4 6-7(5) 6-3 to bow out in the last 16 for the second tournament in row.

Roger Federer’s Shanghai campaign got off to an almost hiccup free start as he defeated Andreas Seppi 6-4 6-3 to move into the third round where he’ll meat Gael Monfils.

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 »

Murray Defeats Sluggish Federer in Shanghai

Murray def. Federer

Well certainly not the result I wanted as Andy Murray defeated Federer 6-4 6-4 to setup a final in Shanghai with Novak Djokovic. I had high hopes going into the match, the courts have been playing fast and Murray has been feeling under the weather with a cold but Roger just never got to the races today. Sluggish, error strewn, ... Read More »

Federer Sets Up Semi Final Clash With Murray

Whoop! We’re back to standard procedure is Shanghai as Roger defeated Cilic 6-3 6-4 in 82 minutes to setup a semi final clash with Andy Murray who saw off Radek Stepanek in 3 sets. After what can only be described as a weird match against Wawrinka yesterday I thought Roger looked like he meant business today and like he’d stepped ... Read More »

Federer Survives Wawrinka, Retains Number 1 Ranking

Federer Survives Wawrinka

Well talk about a rollercoaster of a match. I thought for a good portion of it that writing this would be my last blog post on Shanghai but yet again Roger 3.0 had other ideas coming back from a set down to defeat Stan Wawrinka 4-6, 7-6(4), 6-0 and guarantee the Number 1 ranking for a little while longer. After ... Read More »

Federer Makes Winning Start in Shanghai

Federer beats Lu in Shanghai

Seems like forever since we last saw Roger on court and he came back with a bang today beating Lu Yen-hsun 6-3, 7-5 in 1 hour and 20 minutes to setup a clash with fellow Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka, which if he wins will secure the Number 1 slot for a while longer. I have to say I really enjoyed this ... Read More »

Good Draw in Shanghai for Federer

Shanghai 2012 Rolex Masters

The draw for Shanghai is out and you can view it here – Shanghai Masters Draw. I’m happy with Roger’s draw as it’s one of those that’s not stupidly difficult but not one that’s not stupidly easy either. We don’t know his second round opponent yet (get’s a bye for 1st round) but we know it will either be ZHANG, ... Read More »
