Thoughts on Federer’s Loss to Robredo

Robredo defeats Federer US Open

Hey guys, I’ve been a little delayed in getting this post out due to the late finish on Monday and then playing tennis myself yesterday evening so it’s not quite fresh in the aftermath of Roger’s loss to Robredo. That’s probably a good thing though as it’s sometimes good to let the dust settle on tough losses especially when fans ... Read More »

Federer Makes Light Work of Mannarino at US Open

Federer Sweeps Aside Adrian Mannarino US Open

Another routine match for Roger has he swept aside Adrian Mannarino 6-3 6-0 6-2 in just 81 minutes to book his place in the 4th round against Tommy Robredo who defeated Dan Evans in 4 sets. As I predicted Mannarino had little to offer and after a fairly competitive first set he folded completely as Roger piled on the pressure ... 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 6-3 6-2 6-1 at US Open

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 »

US Open Draw 2013; Federer and Nadal in same Quarter

US Open Draw 2013

The US Open draw is out and the big news most predictable news is that Roger could potentially meet Rafael Nadal in the Quarter Finals which would be their first ever meeting at Flushing Meadows. The biggest shock is seeing the Number #7 seeding next to Roger’s name as he hasn’t been outside the top 4 at a slam for ... Read More »

How Will Andy Roddick Be Remembered?

Roddick Retires

Now ordinarily I rarely post about other players on the tour other than Roger but seen as though Andy Roddick has played his last match at professional level and his career was intertwined closely with Roger I thought I’d post on how I will remember him. Before that I’d just like to say that I think the timing of his ... Read More »

Federer Loses to Berdych at US Open

Federer loses to Berdych

Well not the US Open we all hoped for as Berdych silenced the Arthur Ashe crowd beating Roger in 4 sets to setup a semi final clash with Andy Murray. It was disappointing to say the least, with Roger 23-0 in US Open night session matches I thought he’d be beating Berdych comfortably. Berdych was always going to be dangerous ... Read More »

Fed vs. Berdych

Apologies I couldn’t make this post sooner but I have been busy with work and a few other bits and pieces. The big news from yesterday was Mardy Fish pulled out from his 4th round match against Roger citing “health reasons” as the issue behind his withdrawal. I was very surprised at him pulling out to be honest, I went ... Read More »
