Roger Federer playing his 1st match after his shock exit at Wimbledon 2013 overcame the 59th ranked German Daniel Brands 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 in 1 hour & 25 minutes to set up a 3rd round clash vs Jan Hajek who defeated Ernests Gulbis.

Roger Federer playing his first ever competitive match with a 98 square inch Wilson Tennis racket later confirmed after the match that this Tennis racket is a new prototype designed by Wilson Tennis, thus clarifying that its not a Wilson Blade 98 as many have been speculating over the past 72 hours.

 

 

 

1st set:

 

 

 

Roger Federer started a bit shakily in the 1st set. Daniel Brands had impressed every one with his impressive first round outing vs the eventual champion Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros, 2013. Brands won the first set vs Nadal and lead 3-0 in the 2nd set before eventually Rafa Nadal wrapped up in the 4 sets. 

 

 

Daniel Brands looked very solid in the opening set. While, the Swiss Maestro over-hit many balls on his backhand side. In spite of that, his service & forehand kept in the set. The first 6 games went on service. Federer had 2 break points in the 7th game, but couldn't break the German's service & the German managed to break Federer's service in the very next game to get to a 5-3 lead.

 

 

Daniel Brands then served out the set 6-3 in 32 minutes.

 

 

 

Here are the first set stats :::

Clearly, Roger Federer's backhand as I had stated in my racket post looked a bit off in the first set as he over hit, mistimed many balls. Also, Federer's 1st serve % was 48% which is very low as per his high standards. Its because of those errors that Federer couldn't break Brands service in spite of the fact that German double faulted thrice.

 

 

 

 

2nd set

 

 

 

Roger Federer's shaky performance in the first set panicked many fans as many of them started questioning the decision to play at Hamburg & many blamed it on the new racket. But, as Federer has done for the majority of his career once again bounced back when the chips were down.

 

 

The Swiss Maestro broke the German's service in the 4th game to get to a 3-1 lead. That was the opening that Federer needed and from there on, there was no stopping for Federer. His service looked immaculate as ever as he lost just 2 points on his service & won all his 17 points on his 1st service. Federer won the set 6-3 in just 24 minutes.

3rd set

 

 

 

The Swiss maestro had all the momentum going in to 3rd. Federer broke the German's service in the 3rd game to get to a 2-1 lead and that pretty much dashed any hopes of recovery that Brands had of a come back. The German's service again got broken in the 5th game as Federer raced to a 4-1 lead. Roger Federer served out the set and the match in the 8th game on his 3rd match point as he served out the set 6-2 in 29 minutes.

 

 

 

The end score-line read 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 in favor of Roger Federer and his opponent in the 3rd round on Thursday will be Jan Hajek.
