Switzerland Wins First Davis Cup Crown

Switzerland Wins First Davis Cup Crown

Roger Federer helped Switzerland clinch its first Davis Cup trophy, one of the few tennis jewels to have eluded him, against nine-time former champion France.

Federer was in sparkling form against Richard Gasquet in a 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 victory in the first reverse singles rubber of the final at the Stade Pierre Mauroy in Lille. Switzerland is the 14th nation to capture the Davis Cup crown.

France’s captain Arnaud Clement opted for Gasquet over his original selection, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, but Federer proved to be too strong a force and recorded his 73rd singles match win in 85 matches this season, which included five individual titles from 11 finals. Roger ends his 2014 campaign as the oldest year-end No. 2 in ATP Rankings history (since 1973).

Federer lost to Gael Monfils on Friday, but teamed up with Stan Wawrinka in Saturday’s doubles to give Switzerland a 2-1 advantage. World No. 4 Wawrinka, who beat Tsonga in the first rubber of the final, had been due to meet Monfils in the fifth rubber.

Federer has a 37-7 Davis Cup Win/Loss record, he won all five of his singles rubbers this year and could overtake Jakob Hlasek as Switzerland’s most successful player during this weekend’s tie.

Wawrinka owns a 20-13 record in singles rubbers. He won his singles rubber against Fabio Fognini in the semi-finals, contributing to Switzerland's 3-2 victory over Italy.

Nole wins Barclays ATP World Tour Finals title

Nole wins Barclays ATP World Tour Finals title

Novak Djokovic won the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals title, his fourth season finale crown, when Roger Federer withdrew due to a back injury ahead of Sunday’s final at The O2 in London.

"We always give 100 per cent," said Djokovic. "I'm sure that if he could've played, he would've done. So I wish him the best in his recovery.

"I'm not one of those players that celebrates these particular wins, but I have to reflect on the whole season. This trophy is definitely the crown for all the achievements that I had this year. I owe the credit to my team, to all the people who supported me all the way through, and plenty of joy. I'm very happy to be able to stand here and finish with this trophy."

Roger Federer pulled out ahead of the championship match at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals due to a back injury.

He made the announcement to fans on Sunday at The O2 in London following the doubles trophy ceremony.

Novak Djokovic, his opponent in the final at The O2 in London, won a pro set 8-5 against Andy Murray. The Briton then teamed up with John McEnroe in a doubles exhibition match to beat Tim Henman and Pat Cash 8-6.

"Unfortunately, I'm not match fit to play the match tonight," said Federer on court. "Clearly I wish it wasn't so. I tried all year to be ready for the [Barclays] ATP World Tour Finals, and I didn't want it to end this way. I tried everything I could last night, also today – painkillers, treatment, rest, so forth, warm-up, until the very end – but I just can't compete at this level with Novak. It would be too risky at my age to do this right now and I hope you understand.

Federers destroys Murray, reaches semis at Barclays ATP World Tour Finals

Federers destroys Murray, reaches semis at Barclays ATP World Tour Finals

Roger Federer crushed Andy Murray 6-0, 6-1 in 56 minutes and qualified for the semi-finals at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals..

“It wasn't what I was looking for when I went on the court,” said Murray. “Everything he tried tonight came off. He has the ability to do that. I now have six, seven weeks before the next tournament. I have time to work on some stuff.”

“I had the upper hand from the baseline, which hasn't always happened against him,” said Federer. “But I definitely was able to play on my terms. For me, things went very well. I was able to put Andy under pressure very often, and I think the match couldn't have gone any better for me really.”

"I knew I was qualified, so maybe I went in a bit more relaxed," Federer said. "It's not the way I thought it was going to go, but there's always next year for Andy."

Kei Nishikori, who is having a terrific season, qualifies for the semi-finals in second place.

Federer Honoured By Edberg In ATP Awards Ceremony

Roger Federer was honoured in a special ceremony on opening night at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, receiving his two trophies in the 2014 ATP World Tour Awards Presented By Moët & Chandon.

Federer had been voted by fellow players as the winner for a 10th year, but received the trophy from Edberg himself for the first time.

“This award means a lot to me. I try to play as fairly as I can. This is a classy sport and I try to represent it as well as I can,” said Federer. "Stefan has paved the way for me. He's been my hero. It was a big surprise that he actually decided to come work with me and travel the world. He's been a great inspiration both on and off the court."

Roger Federer Basel champion

Roger Federer Basel champion

Roger Federer scored a 6-2, 6-2 win over David Goffin to win his sixth Swiss Indoors Basel title.

Federer finds himself less than 500 points behind Novak Djokovic in the battle for the number 1 spot in the rankings.

"It would be very special to reclaim No. 1," said Federer. "World No. 1 is what it's all about in our game. With the year I have had and the amount of finals I have played, the level of tennis I have played, I am pleased to see that I have a shot. But having a shot and being there is two separate things. I am sure that Novak is going to come in very motivated, just after having a baby. I am very happy for him. There are clearly interesting weeks ahead."

Roger broke in the first game and cruised from there, securing an early break for 3-2 in the second set and closing out the victory after just 51 minutes. He fired five aces and 19 winners, winning an impressive 93 per cent of second serve points.

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.
