Roger Federer claims 19th Masters title with Indian Wells victory (The Guardian)

Roger Federer equalled Rafael Nadal's record of 19 ATP Masters 1000 titles as he beat the 11th seed, John Isner, 7-6 (9/7), 6-3 in the final of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. Federer became the first player to win four Paribas Opens, adding to the three he won between 2004 and 2006. "When it all pays off after a bit of a scare early on in the week and you get the title and the emotions are going, it's a wonderful feeling," said Federer. "I remember the days when I won three years in a row here, and I enjoyed myself over here. "It's been a long time since I have been this successful here, even though I have had some really good matches here in the past, but it's nice taking it all the way and getting victories. I was just really happy and not relieved because I was just extremely proud of my performance this week."

Roger Federer believes he is in some of the best form of his life after scooping the BNP Paribas Open title for a record fourth time. Federer was made to work hard for his victory by surprise finalist John Isner, who has broken into the top ten for the first time as a result of his impressive showing at Indian Wells. "Honestly, I never looked one match ahead of me. I thought del Potro was going to be extremely difficult. Once I got through that one, I only thought of the Nadal match. So for me, maybe mentally because of what happened, it was a bit of an easier tournament."

Write off Roger Federer at your peril. Four months after ending one of the longest title droughts of his career, the former world No 1 last night claimed his sixth tournament in his last eight appearances when he won the Indian Wells Masters. Federer beat John Isner, of the United States, 7-6, 6-3 to win the Californian title for a record fourth time. Twenty-four hours after sweeping aside Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals, Federer earned revenge for his stunning Davis Cup defeat by Isner in Switzerland last month.

Roger Federer concedes nothing, to opponents or to age (Los Angeles Times)

Federer, who's won a record 16 major titles, is 30, an age when many players in the punishing sport of tennis are thinking retirement. But he just keeps winning, including Sunday's Indian Wells final. When he beat John Isner in Sunday's BNP Paribas Open final, it wasn't so much that he won, but that his winning appears to foreshadow more of the same. And that it continues on a level of tennis that demands a near-perfect body more than a near-perfect forehand.

Roger Federer has not won a Grand Slam title in more than two years, but he continued his somewhat more subtle recent assault on the record books Sunday. On a cold, windy day, Federer claimed his record-tying 19th Masters 1000 title, beating John Isner, 7-6 (7), 6-3, in the final of the BNP Paribas Open. “Well, naturally, I mean, I love winning tennis tournaments,” Federer said. “It’s nice taking it all the way and getting victories.”

I liked the comment on LA Times. At the end Bill Dwyre writes: "Roger Federer, the amazing man from Switzerland, has much magic left. It is only a matter of where and when the next rabbit comes out of the hat". And that "half-lob half-passing shot that dropped like a sack of potatoes onto the baseline". Isner called it "that backhand pass lob, whatever it was". "The next rabbit" cute isn'it ? But it describes exactly Roger's game. Bravissimo, grandissimo Roger.

*Suzie Wong* But Ryan Harrison in first match could be quite a challenge. Even Starace, the alternative to Harrison, who has pushed him quite hard in the past, being a stonewall kind of clay court player.

Fabulous win! No doubt you're the greatest.
*Suzie Wong* - my view of Roger's draw is it's better than recent ones. Yes, Roddick beat him in an exhibition match recently, but Roger had jsut got off a plane. Nor do I see Monfils or Fish as being as dangerous as Roger's recent opponents - Isner, Delpo, Nadal. On the other hand conditions in Miami will not suit Roger's game, with the humidity etc. No pressure on him to win.
