Out in quarters http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5410-im-viertelfinale-ausgeschieden.html Roger suffered a 6-3, 2-6, 5-7 loss against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarters of the Monte-Carlo... Roger suffered a 6-3, 2-6, 5-7 loss against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarters of the Monte-Carlo masters today. 

“I think the match definitely had some twists and turns,“ Roger said. “I’m not sure how come. Maybe we were both a bit up and down. We had a couple of games here and there that we kind of gave each other on the serve (…) The third set was close all the way through. The game I got broken is a tough game to get broken on because I think I had three forehands that I’m in good position, and I end up losing all three points. It’s a tough break to get (…) It was a good tournament, a good match, exactly what I was hoping for and more, so I’m very happy."

In spite of the result not going Roger's way, it was an incredibly intense match, offering the spectators a true tennis-spectacle.

Thank you http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5392-danke.html Dear fans I would like to send out a heartfelt thank you for all your kind words after my injury... Tennis Starseite 2 Thu, 25 Feb 2016 20:31:00 +0100 Novak too strong http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5374-novak-zu-stark.html Roger was overpowered 1-6, 2-6, 6-3, 3-6 in the 45th duel against Novak Djokovic, unfortunately... "My rhythm, my timing, all that, was a bit off in the beginning. He took advantage of that and did an unbelievable job for a long, long time tonight," Roger said.

Our champ battled, facing an incredibly strong opponent. He dropped his serve twice in his opening three service games - the set lasting only 23 minutes. It did not look any better in the second, as Roger dropped serve in the third game and did not win any more games after that, clearly losing the set. The last time Roger won just three games in the first two sets goes all the way back to 2001, when he lost to Andre Agassi in the US Open.

But Roger finally seized the moment in the third set as he converted a fourth break point to take a 4-3 lead and then wrap up the set. Unfortunately Roger displayed a poor game in the fourth set at 3-4 which Djokovic immediately took advantage of, breaking our champ and then serving out the match.]]>

A brilliant performance http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5368-eine-brilliante-vorstellung.html Roger showed a brilliant performance against David Goffin in Melbourne at midnight to defeat the... Roger showed a brilliant performance against David Goffin in Melbourne at midnight to defeat the Belgian 6-2, 6-1, 6-4.

Due to an extended match between Navarro and Gavriola, our champ had to be patient before stepping onto the court late in Melbourne today. But he displayed no signs of tiredness whatsoever. He rocketed away to take the first set after 21 minutes. Keeping the pace high, he clearly dominated the Belgian and thrilled the crowd with fantastic points - it was clearly his best performance at the Australian Open so far this year.
David Goffin held up better in the third set, breaking Roger's serve - but was eventually left without much of a chance against our brilliantly playing Maestro. The latter commented: "the rhythm is back. That is extremely important for the next match."

Roger will next meet Tomas Berdych (ATP 6) in the quarters.
