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

Federer alludes to Rome return after boys' birth Roger Federer has alluded to a return at the Italian Open following a week off to welcome the birth of his second set of twins. Federer tweeted Monday, "ciao tutti, I just arrived in bella Italia! Looking forward to Rome." Federer's first opponent at the Foro Italico is slated to be 47th-ranked Jeremy Chardy.

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.

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

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

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.
