Roger loses tough final in Wimbledon http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5207-roger-verliert-umkaempften-wimbledon-final.html Novak Djokovic ended Roger's quest for an eigth Wimbledon title today. Our champ was defeated... Novak Djokovic ended Roger's quest for an eigth Wimbledon title today. Our champ was defeated 6-7(1), 7-6(10), 4-6, 3-6 by the defending champion.

The two best tennis players of the world showed breathtaking tennis, especially throughout the first two sets. Roger played aggressively, came forward to the net fairly often and successfully - as Djokovic scored on the points from the base-line. 

It was a match that could go either way, just as expected. The first two sets had to be decided in a tie-breaker, the first going to Djokovic and the second - with a thrilling final phase when Roger managed to just turn it around - to Roger. Our champ then got under pressure early as he dropped his serve in sets 3 and 4. Unfortunately his serves were not quite as powerful as on Friday against Murray and he committed too many unforced errors. Djokovic was in charge now.

After almost three hours Roger had to postpone his eighth triumph in Wimbledon to the coming season. ]]>

Roger to play Djokovic in final! http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5204-roger-gegen-djokovic-im-wimbledon-final.html Roger defeated Andy Murray 7-5, 7-5, 6-4 in a fantastic semi-final in Wimbledon today. Roger... Roger defeated Andy Murray 7-5, 7-5, 6-4 in a fantastic semi-final in Wimbledon today.

Roger served excellently right from the start, boasting 85% of first serves in in the first set. He managed a break in the opener in the very last moment, with both players showing breathtaking tennis at that stage and even more so from there onwards. Roger was very close to wrapping up the second set at 5-4 as the two went to Deuce several times on Murray's serve, with Roger missing a total of five break-points. But after his own service game - to love - he went on to secure that missed break and take the set, 7-5 once again. Roger held the pace during the last set and did not let anything slip past him this time, taking it 6-4 and securing his spot in Sunday's final.

Roger will now play Novak Djokovic in a replay of last year's final (2014 our champ was defeated in five sets). Roger has the chance to capture an 18th Grand Slam title - his last one going back to 2012 in Wimbledon.

Semis against Murray http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5199-im-halbfinal-gegen-murray.html Roger won his quarter final in Wimbledon against Gilles Simon today, defeating the Frenchman 6-3,... Our champ will now play local hero Andy Murray in the semis. The last time the two met in Wimbledon was 2012 - twice. Roger first captured the Wimbledon title and it was Murray who beat him in the Olympic final just a month later. "We both like to look back at that summer,” Roger said.]]> Tennis Starseite 1 Wed, 08 Jul 2015 17:56:00 +0200 Roger in perfect form http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5187-roger-in-perfekter-form.html Roger brushed aside Roberto Bautista Agut 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 today to advance to the quarter-finals in...
The first set was over after just 19 minutes and the second didn't take Roger much longer. Our champ served perfectly - the Spaniard not coming close to a breakball throughout the match. Bautista injured his achilles tendon, requiring medical attention, but was then able to resume play.

After just under an hour and a half Roger marked another win in his Wimbledon career balance sheet.

Roger will now meet France's Gilles Simon (ATP 13). The two players have met seven times before, Simon registering two wins.

Roger cruises into round three http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/esp/news-detail/news/5181-roger-bleibt-auf-kurs.html Roger produced a sublime display to beat Sam Querrey in the second round at Wimbledon today,... Roger produced a sublime display to beat Sam Querrey in the second round at Wimbledon today, defeating the American 6-4, 6-2, 6-2.


Roger had some difficulty with Querrey's serves in the opening set and had to fight off a breakball to start with. Our champ managed to cope with the dangerous servers better and better into the match, managed a first break at 4-4 and then easily brought the set home.
Roger's second break followed right away and Querrey's only weapon from there on seemed to be his serve. Roger showed some great tennis, the most entertaining Lob between the legs for one - even scoring the point! He wrapped up set number two with an ace.
The third set was similar to the second, our champ breaking to start with and cruising on. After 1.5 hours Roger had booked his spot for round three without ever having gotten into trouble.

Next up is Sam Groth (ATP 68) from Australia.
