Roger Federer Wins Istanbul Open

Federer Wins Inaugural Istanbul Open

Roger Federer won the TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open after defeating Pablo Cuevas 6-3, 7-6(11).

With the win, Turkey became the 19th different country in which Federer has won an ATP World Tour title.

The top seed capitalised on one one of his three break point opportunities to easily take the first set in 33 minutes. The Swiss broke again in the seventh game of the second set and looked to be in cruise control until the 29-year-old Uruguayan broke back to level the set at 4-all. Federer then earned triple break point on Cuevas' serve before the World No. 23 was able to hold at 5-4.

No problem for Federer in Monte Carlo

Federer Cruises Past Chardy In Monte-Carlo

Roger Federer defeated Jeremy Chardy 6-2, 6-1 and set up a third round meeting with Gael Monfils at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.

Monfils, who defeated Alexandr Dolgopolov.

Federer hit 19 winners to five for Chardy, and made 12 unforced errors.

“I thought Jeremy didn’t serve very well, and I felt good on the return,” said Federer. “So I was in a lot of the service games when he was serving. Then I thought I served well, had a high first serve percentage and was able to control the baseline. On clay, things move ahead very quickly, I must say.”

Djokovic wins Indian Wells after beating Federer

Djokovic wins Indian Wells after beating Federer

Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer 6-3, 6-7 (5/7), 6-2 to successfully defend his Indian Wells crown and claim his 50th career ATP title.

Nole also captured his fourth Indian Wells crown and is now tied with world number two Federer for the most men's titles in the California desert.

It was another epic struggle in a long list of hardcourt battles between the two top players in the world, who have met 38 times with Swiss great Federer still holding a slight 20-18 edge.

Djokovic had lost his last two matches to Federer in straight sets after beating him in last year's Wimbledon final. The five-time Australian Open winner also needed three sets to beat Federer in the 2014 Indian Wells title match.

Djokovic's range of emotions Sunday went from shaking while trying to take a drink of water during a changeover, to breaking a racquet in fit of anger to the sweet bliss of beating the 17-time Grand Slam winner and one of the greatest of all-time on the big stage.

Rafa and Roger into R16 at Indian Wells

Rafael Nadal beat Donald Young 6-4, 6-2 in the third round at the BNP Paribas Open and will next face Gilles Simon who defeated Michael Berrer 6-2, 7-5.

The Spaniard's loss in the third round last year to Dolgopolov but that's all in the past.

“Last year is 2014; we are in 2015,” he said. “We cannot think about what happened last year in every round and in every tournament. Every year is different."

Rafa hit 8 winners and won six of his eight break point opportunities in his 80-minute victory over Young.

"I like playing here – I love the players, I love the organization, I love the fans here and I feel very comfortable. I'm happy to be in the fourth round… Tomorrow I have a tough match against Simon. He's tough, a good player.”

Federer to face Seppi in Indian Wells

Federer to face Seppi in Indian Wells

Roger Federer beat Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 6-2 to advance to the BNP Paribas Open third round.

Roger hit eight aces, won 13 of 14 points at the net, and faced no break points in the 63-minute match.

The former world number 1 will face Andreas Seppi, who defeated Victor Hanescu 6-4, 6-4. The Italian beat Federer at the Australian Open and the Swiss is expecting this revenge.

“I'm happy to play him again,” Federer said of his next opponent. “I was very disappointed with the performance I had in Australia. I know he can play well and can beat me, that's not the problem. It was the way I was hitting the ball. I wasn't playing very committed. I wasn't sure exactly how I was going to hit my forehand and backhands. It was just a tough match overall and the match slipped away from me.

Federer Wins Seventh Dubai Title

Federer Wins Seventh Dubai Title

Roger Federer defeated Novak Djokovic 6-3, 7-5 to win the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships 2015 title.

The Swiss hit ace number 9000 when he fired down a service winner at the start of the sixth game of the second set.

After saving two break points earlier in the contest, Federer broke Djokovic in the eighth game and went on to serve out the opener. Top seed Djokovic had his chances to push the match to a third set. He had Federer at 15/40 on serve in the eighth game and then again in the 10th game – eliciting two set points – but could not convert.

Federer then pounced in the 11th game, breaking Djokovic - who had led 40/0 - with a forehand winner to Djokovic, Federerlead 6-5. Federer faltered slightly serving for the match. He netted on his first match point and was forced to save a seventh break point for Djokovic before sealing victory at the second time of asking in 84 minutes.

Federer Launches Chinese New Year In Dubai

Federer Launches Chinese New Year In Dubai

Roger Federer launched the Chinese New Year celebrations at Burj Al Arab on Thursday, which begins Monday, 23 February.

Federer was invited to participate in the ceremony for the colouring of the eyes of the lion. The lion dance is a traditional cultural dance performed at significant ceremonies and Chinese New Year celebrations. Colouring of the eyes is an important part of the ceremony, and the responsibility is reserved for someone of high social status, as it is believed to give the lion its spirit, and brings it to life. This ceremony must be undertaken prior to the lion dance commencing.

Federer was delighted to be part of the ceremony, saying, “It’s been a fantastic evening, I’m honoured to have been part of this celebration. The Burj Al Arab is iconic, and this celebration is a nice gesture for the Chinese guests. I’ve had some amazing moments playing here in Dubai, especially playing here on the helipad, and playing in China too, so the chance to celebrate this, I wasn’t going to miss it.”

Q. You didn't look quite comfortable out there today, especially the first two sets. Was something special going on or just a bad day?

ROGER FEDERER: Just a bad day, yeah. I mean, I wish I could have played better, but clearly it was tough losing the first two, you know. Had chances to get back into it. I let it slip, I mean, both times in some ways. I guess I won the wrong points out there today. I knew how important that second set tiebreaker was, so clearly that hurt, losing that one. The end wasn't pretty, you know. It wasn't easy to play with the shadow. But it was the same for both of us. Just a disappointing loss, you know.

Q. Did you have a chance to make a volley on the very final point?

ROGER FEDERER: I mean, I guess maybe if he hits it normally, maybe yes. But the way he hits it you think, This can't possibly land in. You kind of go and you're there and you're like, No, I'm going to let it go. As you're telling yourself that, you look behind you and you already know it's done, so... Because he was also running into the sun, so I have to cover cross-court just in case. That's where everybody goes. I don't know. Ask him how he felt hitting it. It's clearly a big blow because I actually hit my forehand pretty good.

Q. Were you surprised about the first set of Bolelli, who never won a set versus you? Are you also surprised he never beat a top-10 player in 33 matches, and now 34?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I thought he played two really good sets against me in Davis Cup, so I felt like he was really, you know, imposing his strength at the baseline. I could sense there that he had a good forehand; committed, you know, on the return; solid backhand with the option to hit the slice. I wasn't that surprised, to be honest, you know. I was just surprised how well, how consistently he was doing that, and especially how well he was serving actually. But then again, conditions were fast, which made it easier to serve well and harder to return. Maybe the break, I shouldn't be broken, but he was really playing very well from the baseline. I guess in these conditions sometimes a break can be a set. That's when I was under pressure for a while in the second set, but I'm happy I fought my way out of it.

Q. How is your finger and how is the blister?

ROGER FEDERER: I don't know if it's a blister. I don't know what that thing is. It's the weirdest thing. I don't know. I feel it on the tip of my finger. Just felt really odd starting after the break, and for three, four games, it was the funniest feeling I have. I feel like it's numb and swollen. So, I don't know, I just wanted to have a chat with the...
