How Basel Was Lost

Hey guys, this is a short piece from Sid on Roger’s performance today in Basel, I was going to add it onto my post but I thought it probably deserved it’s very own so here it is. PS I’m always willing to post fan pieces on here if you have an opinion on Roger or just tennis in general and ... Read More »

Del Potro Denies Federer to Defend Basel Title

Del Potro defeats Federer Basel 2013

Not quite the ending to Basel we all wanted as Roger fell just that bit short losing in another 3 set encounter against Juan Martin Del Potro who successfully defended his title. Like last year it was another close one and a trademark Federer 2013 reckless service game cost him in the end firing down 3 double faults to drop ... Read More »

Federer Overwhelms Dimitrov in Basel

Federer defeats Dimitrov Basel 2013

Hey all, seems there is some life in the old GOAT yet as he defeated Grigor Dimitrov 6-3 7-6(2) to move into the semi finals in Basel. It was a much better display from Roger than we’ve seen recently and you got the feeling he was right up for this one. He alluded to that with a tweet earlier in ... Read More »

Federer Fights Back to Defeat Istomin in Basel

Federer defeats Istomin in Basel

A big win for Roger as he came from a set down to beat Denis Istomin in Basel and move into the Quarter Finals. On current form Istomin was always going to be a test and it almost went badly wrong for Federer as had he not held serve at a key moment in the final set the outcome could ... Read More »

Federer Sees Off Mannarino in Basel

Federer defeats Mannarino in Basel

Hey guys, Roger is finally back in action and got his Basel campaign underway with a win defeating Adrian Mannarino 6-4 6-2 in 1 hour and 11 minutes. In a relatively one sided affair Fed didn’t really have to do much to get the win and despite a couple of shaky moments I thought he played pretty well. Still evidently ... Read More »

Basel / Swiss Indoors Draw 2013 – Federer Faces Mannarino

Basel Draw 2013

The Basel draw is out and Roger has landed in the same half as Tomáš Berdych, could face Grigor Dimitrov in the Quarter finals but first has to see off Adrian Mannarino in his opening match at the St. Jakobshalle arena. There are no easy draws in ATP Masters 500 events, especially not at the Swiss Indoors which always seem ... Read More »

Brennwald Causing More Drama; Nadal Announces He’s Playing Basel

Basel 2013 Tennis

Hey guys, just a quick post about news from off the courts this week as Nadal has announced he’s playing the Swiss Indoors in Basel and tournament organiser Roger Brennwald has once again started stirring up a media storm with what appears to be his own personal anti-Federer campaign. I mentioned my dislike for Brennwald a couple of times in ... Read More »

Del Potro Defeats Federer to Win Basel Title

Del Potro defeats Federer in Basel

Wahhhhhh, enjoyable final with a disappointing result as Fed failed to win his 6th Basel title losing in 3 close sets to Juan Martin Del Potro. Despite writing off Fed’s chances earlier in the week I went into the final with a degree of optimism as he’d improved quite significantly in his last two matches against Paire and Mathieu, I ...

Federer Defeats Mathieu to Make The Final

Federer def. Mathieu

Another solid performance from Roger as he swept past Paul-Henri Mathieu 7-5 6-4 in 86 minutes to make his 9th Basel final. After looking far better in his match against Paire, Roger continued in similar form today, serving fairly well and never really looking troubled by Mathieu. With Fed leading the H2H 5-0 it was always going to be an ... Read More »
