Federer Makes Winning Start at US Open

Federer Matosevic US Open 2014

Hey all, very solid match for the GOAT here as he opened his US Open campaign with a 6-3 6-4 7-6 (7/4) win over loud mouth Aussie Marinko Matosevic. Not quite the return of Darth Federer we were expecting as Fed took to the court in some white Michael Jordan inspired tennis shoes as part of a Nike PR drive ... Read More »

US Open Draw 2014: Federer Plays Matosevic 1st Round

US Open Draw 2014

The draw for the US Open is out and Federer’s landed a good one. In fact on paper it looks peRFect but of course matches aren’t played on paper, they’re played on the court so I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself. All I know is I’m excited for the tournament ahead and hoping Fed continues his ... Read More »

Roger Federer’s US Open Outfit 2014

Darth Federer US Open Outfit

Here’s Roger Federer’s US Open Outfit for 2014. As usual he’ll have a day session outfit and a night session one which sees the return of Darth Federer! I’m liking both of them really and the blue / turquoise day session one is much better than the Mint Green he wore in Toronto / Cincy. Nike have definitely done good ... Read More »

Roger Federer’s Best Matches at the US Open

Federer's Best US Open Match

On my last blog post I got a comment regarding the fact that American sports broadcasting companies don’t really talk about Federer’s achievements at Flushing Meadows. I find that quite strange considering he’s played so many great matches on Arthur Ashe, has the best ever W/L record in New York of all time and has generally entertained millions of people ...

Federer defeats Berlocq US Open

Just a brief post from me as Roger made serene progress into the third round defeating Carlos Berlocq 6-3 6-2 6-1 in just over 1 hour and 30 minutes. It was a very routine match and just like the one against Grega Žemlja on Tuesday he was never in any trouble. For both the fans and Federer himself I think ... Read More »
