Davis Cup: Switzerland beats Kazakhstan 3-2 to reach semis

Davis Cup: Switzerland beats Kazakhstan 3-2 to reach semis

Roger Federer won the decisive singles match on Sunday to give Switzerland a 3-2 win over Kazakhstan in the Davis Cup and a spot in the semifinals for the first time in 11 years.

Federer cruised to a 7-6 (0), 6-2, 6-3 victory over 64th-ranked Andrey Golubev, then ran across the court to embrace team captain Severin Luethi.

"We're very relieved and very happy," said the 32-year-old Federer, who has never won a Davis Cup title. "It was a long weekend with a lot of tennis."

Trailing 2-1 after losing Saturday's doubles, Switzerland had drawn level when Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka beat Mikhail Kukushkin 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.

Djokovic beats Federer to win Indian Wells title

Djokovic beats Federer to win Indian Wells title

Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (3) to win the Indian Wells 2014.

Federer rallied from a break down and a 5-3 deficit in the third set to force the tiebreaker Sunday, but he made a slew of mistakes to lose the 33rd meeting between the two rivals.

Federer still leads the series 17-16, having beaten Djokovic in three sets in the semifinals at Dubai two weeks ago. Djokovic will remain No. 2 in the world, while Federer will rise three spots to No. 5 on Monday in the ATP Tour rankings.

Nole earned $1 million while Federer collected $500,000.

Flavia Pennetta routed injured Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 6-1 to win the women's title.

Will Federer win a Grand Slam in 2014?

Will Federer win a Grand Slam in 2014?

(cc) by by Tigre Municipio

In the current crop of players, Roger Federer has long stood out as the king of tennis players. He has more Grand Slam victories than any other player and he’s not looking ready to retire yet.

Only Pete Sampras’ record comes close to Federer’s. Sampras had 14 Grand Slams under his belt when he retired, but Federer has 17, and may add to that tally yet. However, Spaniard Rafael Nadal is coming up close with 13 Grand Slams to his name already, and he clearly has a chance of beating Federer’s record one day, with age on his side, too.

However, when it comes to playing on grass, Roger is in a league of his own. Eight of Nadal’s Grand Slams have been on clay at Paris, but Federer has won seven grass Wimbledon Championships. Sampras achieved the same, with his final victory there in 2000. But this year, we could see a new record for the history books if Federer were to win the Wimbledon Championship for an incredible eighth time.

His last victory there was in 2012, when the suave Swiss player stole Andy Murray’s chance of his first Wimbledon title – much to the disappointment of the expectant British public. However, Murray had his own turn at victory the same summer, taking Olympic Gold at the same venue, and beating Federer in the final to do so. Then 2013 saw Murray finally taking the Wimbledon Championship for himself, beating Novak Djokovic 3-0 in the final match.

Federer wins 6th Dubai Championships title

Federer wins 6th Dubai Championships title

Roger Federer won a record sixth Dubai Championships by beating Tomas Berdych 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 in the final.

Federer delighted a packed stadium of fans who seemed biased for the Swiss in back-to-back wins over Novak Djokovic in the semifinals and Berdych.

"Things definitely went my way out here tonight," Federer said. "I've had a lot of tough matches in the last year and a half so it was nice to get a lucky break again."

The victory was hard fought as Federer lost the first serve and his serve in the second to trail 3-2.

Nadal beats Federer in straight sets to make Australian Open final

Nadal beats Federer in straight sets to make Australian Open final

Rafael Nadal crushed Roger Federer 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-3 to advance to his third Australian Open final where he will meet Stanislas Wawrinka.

Nadal beat the Swiss maestro in a match that was simply vintage Nadal, with the '09 winner hitting jaw-dropping winner after jaw-dropping winner that was simply too much for Federer.

The first set was tight and exciting, but when Nadal finally took it in the tiebreaker the numbers started to lean his way. It's that first set that is so important when these two go at it, with Nadal moving to 7-0 in Grand Slams against Federer when he takes the first set.

Nadal vs Federer in Australian Open semifinal

Nadal vs Federer in Australian Open semifinal

Roger Federer beat Andy Murray 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-3 to advance to his 11th consecutive Australian Open semifinal.

Federer set up a showdown with Rafael Nadal, who beat Grigor Dimitrov 3-6, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (7), 6-2.

Murray, who saved two match points in the third-set tiebreaker, has an 11-10 edge over Federer in head-to-head matches and won their last match in five sets in the Australian Open semifinals last year, but Federer has won four of five matches in majors.

The Wimbledon champion became agitated after a ruling while dropping serve late in the third set when he indicated that he thought the ball had bounced twice before Federer kept it in play.

Roger Federer Interview | 2014 Australian Open 4th Round

Roger Federer Interview | 2014 Australian Open 4th Round Q. Essentially the perfect match. Do you see it the same way? ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, I'm very pleased. Don't think I got broken today. That against a great player. So, yeah, I'm extremely happy how things went for me tonight. I was able to play my game, offensive, mix it up, come to the net. Yeah, I was surprised that things worked out for me. Q. Really surprised or... ROGER FEDERER: To a degree (smiling). I mean, been in the quarters before. But, you know, still this was the kind of match I was hoping to play maybe against Jo in Paris in the quarters. I got a hiding that time. I struggled all the way through the entire match. Okay, it was windy and Jo was playing well. But still, you know, I would assume that I would find my way into the match at one point and I never did. That's maybe where I felt maybe my game is off slightly. The hit I took in Indian Wells was more than just a slight setback. So this is nice being back in the quarters, because I haven't been in one, you know, for two now, Wimbledon and the US Open. So I'm back on a streak of 36, so we'll see where it goes now (smiling). Q. You came into the net 36 or 37 times, and you won about 86% of those points. Something you discussed with your coach leading up to the match? ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, I'm sure you talk about it. The question is can you then do it. Does Jo allow you to? Is he serving too big? Are you going to serve and volley? How is he returning? It depends a little bit how the match goes. I was hoping I could play a little bit aggressive. So I think it worked out better than I thought it would. You know, I was good at net. I was consistent. I was solid. I was quick. I had the right mindset.

Roger Federer Press Conference | Australian Open 2014 1st Round

Roger Federer Press Conference | Australian Open 2014 1st Round

Q. Much obviously today has been made of the conditions. How would you describe them and how it affected your play, if any, today?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I thought it was very dry, just hot, you know, stinging sort of sun.

I guess also it depends on who you play, if you're playing a big server, clearly faster conditions. If you're getting into rallies, I guess you'll feel the heat a bit more.

Depending on where you come from it has a bigger effect on you, this type of heat, than maybe humid heat. So it's very personal, and it can become just a very mental thing, you know, and you just can't accept that it's hot.

Just deal with it, because it's the same for both. That's basically it.

Q. You spoke before the tournament about how hard you trained in the offseason. Does that help you if the weather stays like this to cope well?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I didn't practice in 40 degree heat because that's hard to find, you know, around the world. I did that after the US Open. In Dubai we had 42, 43, so that was warm then.

But like I said, it's just a mental thing. If you've trained hard enough your entire life or the last few weeks and you believe you can do it and come through it, there's no reason.

If you can't deal with it, you throw in the towel. But that's for me.

Hewitt upsets Federer to win Brisbane 2014 title

Hewitt upsets Federer to win Brisbane 2014 title

Lleyton Hewitt upset Roger Federer 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 to win the Brisbane International 2014 title.

Federer was broken three times and committed 22 unforced errors in the first set, making some uncharacteristically basic mistakes including an air swing and two shanked forehands.

He recovered in the second set and had breakpoint chances in Hewitt's first three service games in the deciding set, but couldn't get the vital breakthrough when he needed it most.

"The way you tough it out ... congratulations," Federer said. "I would have loved to have won the title, but Lleyton was better than me today."

"It's been a while since I won a trophy. For me to get it from you really means a lot," Hewitt said. "I don't need to congratulate Roger, he gets congratulated every week when he's up here for finals!"

Hewitt's ranking was projected to reach the low 40s with a win. He finished last season at No. 61 in another disrupted season after toe, foot, hand, hip and back injuries kept him off the tour for long periods between 2007 and the start of 2013.

Can Rafael Nadal Rule at Roland Garros and Wimbledon Again?


Can Rafael Nadal Rule at Roland Garros and Wimbledon Again?

While Novak Djokovic is the undisputed number one in men's tennis, there is no doubt that he is the second favorite going into the Roland Garros grand slam. The French Open is, and has always been, Rafael Nadal's home court. He may be from Spain, but Nadal has made the clay of Paris the court where he feels most comfortable. He has only lost ONE match at Roland Garros during his entire career. That is an incredible run, spanning close to a decade. His only loss came when he was half injured, so what chance does Djokovic, or anyone for that matter, have of beating Nadal?

The greatest threat to Nadal will come from the world number one, and the two are set to meet in the semi final stage. This will be a monumental clash, with Novak Djokovic determined to break Nadal's stranglehold at Roland Garros. Interestingly, Djokovic has never had the best record in the French Open. So he has two reasons for wanting to do very well there this season. The two will give everything in their semi final, which could play into the hands of another tennis great. Roger Federer will most likely be the one waiting for the outcome of the Nadal/Djokovic semi final, with his route to the final considerably easier.

Federer does not have Murray to deal with this time, as Andy suffered an injury before this tournament. In addition, Gael Monfis just took care of the seventh seed, Tomas Berdych. If Federer plays anywhere close to his best tennis, he is a shoe in for the final. In addition, the fatigue of Nadal and Djokovic could play into his hands as he bids to win this grand slam. Those two will end up playing a three to five hour semi final, while Federer's match should be a lot shorter.

Tennis tickets are available for this year's French Open.

The French Open is here, who dares to bet against Nadal?






The French Open is here, who dares to bet against Nadal?
Is this time of the year again, the time when Rafael Nadal makes history and breaks records at the French Open.  

The defending champion has won  the major in Paris 7 times and has a 52-1 record which makes it very difficult to think that another  tennis player can take this title away from him if he is healthy and playing the way he has being playing lately.

Rafa played eight tennis tournaments in 2013, has claimed the trophy in six occasions with a 36-2 match record.

 He lost the final of Viña del Mar to Horacio Zeballos in his first tournament of the season after 7 month out the ATP Tour because of injury, and was beaten by Novak Djokovic at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters final in April.

Breaking Down Federer’s Draw as He Aims for a Third Title in Rotterdam

Breaking Down Federer’s Draw as He Aims for a Third Title in Rotterdam

The biggest indoor tournament of the ATP season so far has already kicked off in Rotterdam. Day One saw a smattering of upsets, the most significant being Jo-Wilfred-
Tsonga’s loss to Igor Sijsling. That means that the man who pushed Roger Federer to five memorable sets at the Australian Open last month will not face the Swiss in the
semi-finals in Rotterdam, depriving fans of a mouth-watering match-up but easing the top seed’s path to a successful title defence.

Since the inaugural event in 1972, only one man - Arthur Ashe - has triumphed three times in the Netherlands’ second city. Federer has one of the greatest indoor records in the history of the sport, and he is favourite to lift the trophy in the Ahoy Rotterdam on Sunday afternoon. Victory would mark the 77th singles title of his career, and put paid to any further suggestion that his game is in decline.

Federer’s route to last eight in Rotterdam looks straightforward enough. An opening match against 64th-ranked Grega Zemlja should pose few problems, and Federer has
schooled his likely second round opponent, Mikhail Youzhny, throughout his career. In nine meetings with the Russian, Federer has lost only one set, and it would be a huge upset if Youzhny were to turn the tables this week.

Federer was seeded to face the big-serving giant Jerzy Janowicz in the quarter-finals, but the Pole lost to Romania’s Victor Hanescu on Monday. While Hanescu is capable of winning another round, it seems more likely that Federer will face a Frenchman in the last eight, either Michael Llodra or Julien Benneteau. Llodra, currently ranked 51, is one of the wiliest competitors on tour, and although he has never beaten Federer, is in good from, having upset Janko Tipsarevic in Montpellier last week.
