Rogi training in Zürich…*SQUEE*!
Through to the quarters…
À bois noueux, hache affilée:
Roger delighted us yet again with a performance nothing short of master class; dispatching I. Dodig 6-3, 6-1. Though what appeared to be little trouble for most of the second set, Roger was met with sudden back pain which made his serving stiff but still didn’t hinder him in closing the match swiftly. The stiffness in the last set was recognized by most of the comms and when asked of his condition, thankfully Roger calmly stated,
“I’m not too worried. I have gone through it so many times where you feel a little tweak,” he said. “Happened during Grand Slams, during tournaments, in practice. It’s just something you learn to deal with.”
Let’s hope it’s just that!
This breezing victory marked his 890th career ATP match victory on tour. Let’s all pray everyone that what happened with Roger’s back was just a tweak and that GOD will bless him with a full and swift recovery. All the best, Rogi!
Our Roger demolished opponent D. Istomin 6-2, 6-3 at a startling rate in his opening match at Indian Wells. In this match I noticed a new ferocity and tweaking in the movement of Federer’s forehand which made many of his shots nearly unpredictable but painted the lines left and right!
Motto: Speak softly & carry a big racquet…
The victorious Federer makes a thumping statement by serving a swift 6-2, 6-2 coup de grâce to the Russian, N. Davydenko and clears his way to the semi-finals. Match was under an hour.
Federer is through his opening round in Dubai, winning 5-7, 6-0, 6-2!
-Despite first letting slip a break point which resulting in him losing the first set, went on to put a demolishing display that quickly had his opponent packing his bags… gaining Roger his first bagel serving of the year. =) Very thrilling match! O_O
Happy Birthday, Rog & congrats on your Olympic medal! =D What can I say or put that millions have not already? Hope you dearily enjoy it with your family & loved ones. I hope they make your days as special for you, as you have for us. As a birthday wish, I hope GOD blesses you all more & more through each upcoming year. Enjoy it, Rogi!
Sorry for the slow update (currently ‘vacationing’ in Italy and has not gone as planned, but being this is a Roger Federer blog…I shan’t digress) Congrats Rogi, our Olympic silver medalist and Switzerland’s 1st medalist this year. Wunderbar! :D
After a marathon match that lasted over 4 hours and losing the first set, Roger proved the superior champion in the end against Argentina’s J. Del Potro. Roger is into the Olympic final and in contention for the gold.
On Monday, Roger proved both successful in the singles and doubles with a 6-2, 6-2 singles victory against France’s J. Benneteau and dispatching Japan’s team in a 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-4 win along side S. Wawrinka in the doubles.
