ROGER FEDERER NEWS

November 15, 2018 -- London, UK

Roger faced the only undefeated player from his group today, Kevin Anderson. Anderson, who has been having one of the best years of his career, came out swinging, but the Swiss Star had a response.

While he may have struggled in his first match at the O2 Arena, the 37-year old was in command today. He did everything he needed to do to book his spot into the semifinals and come away with a 6-4, 6-3 win over the big serving South African.

"We’re used to you lose, you leave and you don’t hang around. So from that standpoint, I think it was more straightforward for me today," Roger said on court after his win. "I’ve always wanted to go out with a bang today and win the match. If I go through, great, if I don’t well I don’t deserve to be through and that’s okay, too. I’m happy I’m still alive."

Both Roger and Anderson move on from their group, while Nishikori and Thiem are out.

The other section plays tomorrow to see who will make it into the semis, although Djokovic has already reserved his spot with his 2-0 record.

The 37-year old Swiss star had the opportunity to ditch the court for some time in the wild to test his survival skills with Bear Grylls, host of NBC's Running Wild.

November 3, 2018 -- Paris, France In a thrilling Quarterfinal matchup at the Rolex Paris Masters, Roger took the court against the always tough Novak Djokovic in hopes of getting one step closer to his 100th title. The Serbian stepped onto the court with 21 straight wins under his belt as he put the pressure on Roger right from the start blasting back answers for every shot the Swiss number 2 player had. Djokovic beat Roger in a thrilling 3rd set 7-6(6), 5-7, 7-6(3) and will return to the top spot on the ATP Rankings for the first time in two years. Unfortunately, based on points, it does not look like Roger will be able to take the number 1 spot as the 2018 season comes to a close. Roger will be competing at the Nitto ATP Finals which take place in London next week. He is in the Lleyton Hewitt group along with Kevin Anderson, Kei Nishikori and Dominic Thiem. Play begins on November 11th and Roger will face Kei Nishikori in his first match.
