Federer wins Basel opener

Federer wins Basel opener

Roger Federer beat Gilles Muller 6-2, 6-1 in just 47 minutes in his opening match at the Swiss Indoors Basel.

Federer hit 12 winners, including five aces in the 24-minute opener and did not lose any of his service points in the second set.

"I am very happy with how the first round went here," said Federer. "It was totally different to Shanghai, when I saved five match points [versus Leonardo Mayer]. This time around, I was really in control from the get-go. I hope I can keep this level up."

Atr this win, the Swiss stands 945 points behind No. 1-ranked Novak Djokovic.

Federer will next meet Denis Istomin in the second round.

"He really imposes his game, with a big forehand, backhand and serve," said Federer of Istomin. "He can be dangerous on return too. I have to be sharp on my own service games, which was a problem here against him last year."

Federer and his year-end World No. 1 spot

Federer and his year-end World No. 1 spot

Roger Federer will play in Basel this week but before starting a new tennis week he talks about his chances of finishing the year as No. 1.

“It's all to play for and I hope to start off well in Basel. The fact that I've gotten so close to No. 1 is a bit of a surprise to me, because clearly I'm aware I haven't won a Slam. But I was extremely close at Wimbledon and I've been very consistent throughout, otherwise I wouldn't be in this situation.

“It's a different year end than I thought it was going to be, but it doesn't actually change a whole lot. I was always going to play the tournaments that I'm playing now and I know that if I don't win a few of them, World No. 1 is not going to happen as well.”
Federer, who finished year-end World No. 1 in 2004-07 and 2009, is looking to reclaim the trophy, having finished runner-up the past two years to Juan Martin del Potro.

“I hope after the very solid year that I've played this year, there's good tennis left in me for this tournament,” said Federer. “[The pressure] has changed a lot over the years. I wanted to do so well here when I was younger that... I don't want to say it consumed me, because I actually never played a poor tournament here. But now, with the experience I have, I take it as a normal tournament.

“Once I get out on the courts, it's a nice feeling being back in the arena that I know so well and where I've had so much success. But I'm not panicky about the tournament anymore like I used to be maybe 10 years ago, when it all started for me.

"I've played here so many times. I know how the court feels and that is an advantage,” said top seed Federer, who opens his campaign against Gilles Muller on Wednesday evening. “Of course, the pressure can always get to you, but I think with the experience I have these days, I walk out and I'm actually quite laidback and really excited to be back on the centre court in Basel.”

Magic Federer wins Shanghai Masters

Magic Federer wins Shanghai Masters

Roger Federer defeated Gilles Simon 7-6(6), 7-6(2) to win the Shanghai Rolex Masters title.

After claiming this title, Federer returned to World No. 2 in the ATP Rankings.

This is his fourth title of the season and his second ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crown.

At the beggining of the week maybe Federer didn't think he was able to pulled it off as he was forced to save five match points against Leonardo Mayer in a dramatic second-round but then he picked up his game and in the semis beat NOvak Djokovic, who was on the run in China.

"It makes me very happy winning here because this tournament means a lot to me," said Federer. "I've always enjoyed coming here. I've come close a couple of times, but I've always wanted to win it as a Masters 1000.

"I feel unbelievable prestige to win this event. Especially putting my hands on the trophy for the first time is a good feeling, I must say. I'm very happy with the way I'm playing. Overall I'm just extremely happy right now."

Nole unstoppable in China

Nole unstoppable in China

Novak Djokovic beat David Ferrer 64 62 for a place in the Shanghai Rolex Masters semi-finals.

Nole is enjoying a winning streak of 29 matches on Chinese soil but next faces Roger Federer, who beat Julien Benneteau 76 60, and I must say that as a Federer lover I have to bet on him to end the Serb's winning form.

Djokovic broke Ferrer’s serve in the second game and went on to save two break points at 5-4. He won 25 of his 33 service points in the 57-minute first set.

Ferrer was broken at the start of the second set and at 2-4. The match lasted one hour and 35 minutes.

Federer survives Monfils at US Open

Federer survives Monfils at US Open

Roger Federer needed exactly one minute to win the first game. It seemed an indication of how the night would go: Surely, he'd march through this quarterfinal meeting with the ever-athletic but spacey Gael Monfils.

The crowd expected this narrative. Many journalists had been predicting it all day. With a 7-2 advantage in previous meetings, Federer seemed confident. But if that was how it was supposed to go, no one told Monfils.

Monfils brought everything he could muster, pushing Federer to the brink before losing in a thrilling five-set match. Monfils won five points on five chances at the net in the first set and his serve hit 132 mph en route to taking the set 6-4. In the second, he only improved.

Robredo upsets Djokovic in Cincinnati Masters, Federer keeps winning

Robredo upsets Djokovic in Cincinnati Masters

Tommy Robredo beat Novak Djokovic 7-6 (6), 7-5 in the round of 16 at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

Too bad I did not wager on tennis this time as this was only the second time Robredo defeats a top ranked player. It would have been a big gain.

Nole dropped the first set after fighting back from a 6-3 deficit in the tiebreaker but Robredo took it with an ace.

Robredo failed to convert two match points before completing the victory with a slam on Djokovic's short lob.

Djokovic wins Wimbledon after beating Federer in an epic five-set final

Djokovic wins Wimbledon after beating Federer in an epic five-set final

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer battled it out in one of the most historic Wimbledon finals ever.

Djokovic took down Federer in a five-set final Sunday that nobody will soon forget.

The crazy thing about this Wimbledon final is it looked over early in the fourth set, when Federer found himself down a set and inn a 3-5 hole to a man who was battling injury at times, but seemed to bounce back faster and stronger with each visit from the trainer.

Djokovic was serving for the match at 5-3 in the fourth after some loose service games from Federer, but the 17-time Grand Slam winner was able to break Novak to keep himself in the match. Federer went on to win the final four games of that fourth set, and took all the momentum of the match to the deciding fifth set where Federer has seen both triumph and heartbreak.

Is Andy Murray ready to defend Wimbledon title?

Is Andy Murray ready to defend Wimbledon title?

Andy Murray became the first British to win Wimbledon in 77 years but if I have to bet I wouldn't bet on him to win the title again at the men's Wimbledon betting market.

The Scott crushed out of Roland Garros badly against Rafa Nadal and suffered an early defeat at Queen's .

“In some ways, it can be good [to have the extra time], providing I use next week properly,” he explained after his defeat. “For me, it’s probably going to get quite hectic towards the end of next week. So over the next few days it will be nice just to have a bit of peace and quiet.”

At Wimbledon Murray will have a difficult time as Roger Federer is playing at a very high level and Wimbledon is his place.

Let's have a look at some early predictions for the fantastic four going into tennis' grass season.

Federer and Mirka welcome Leo and Lenny, second set of twins

Federer and Mirka welcome Leo and Lenny, second set of twins Roger Federer has defied the odds to become a father to twins for the second time in less than five years. The Swiss tennis ace disclosed the news on his Twitter account just hours after he announced he was pulling out of the Madrid Masters to be at the birth: "Mirka and I are so incredibly happy to share that Leo and Lenny were born this evening! #TwinsAgain#Miracle." The two boys were born almost five years after the arrival of their twin sisters Myla Rose and Charlene Riva in July 2009.

Federer alludes to Rome return after boys' birth

Andre Agassi has Rafael Nadal ahead of Roger Federer on his all-time greatest list

Andre Agassi has Rafael Nadal ahead of Roger Federer on his all-time greatest list There is nothing sports fan like doing more than comparing generations. We compare the 1985 Bears to the 2013 Seahawks. Golf fans talk about Tiger Woods versus Jack Nicklaus as much as they talk about who is leading the current golf tournament, and in tennis, the debate rests with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Federer has 17 career Grand Slam titles, the most ever, while Nadal sits with 13 Slams which includes eight French Open titles. That is enough for Andre Agassi, who has eight career Slams himself, and told Singapore's Straits Times just that this week. Agassi was asked to rank the best in the world, and he had Nadal as his top pick, with Federer coming in second, and his reasoning is pretty sound.
