Roger Federer reached the Quarter-finals of Monte Carlo Rolex Masters for the 7th time (in his 11th appearance) overcoming a stiff resistance from Lukas Rosol especially in the 1st set as he won 6-4, 6-1 in 57 minutes to set up a QF clash vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

 

 

atp-masters-series-monte-carlo-20140417-

 

 

 

This is the 66th time that Roger Federer has reached the Quarter-Final of an ATP 1000 masters tournament in his 109th appearance. The Swiss maestro has reached QF or beyond in 59.5% of the total masters tournaments played by him in his career.

 

 

1st Set

 

 

Lukas Rosol came out all guns blazing & was looking very sharp on his forehand side. The Czech had break points on the opening service game, the Swiss managed to save those.

 

But, the Czech continued the pressure & broke Federer's service in the 3rd game after the Swiss double faulted to get to a 2-1 lead.

 

How ever, Federer broke back in the 8th game to make it 4-all & from there on, it was an absolute one sided battle.

 

From there on, Federer kept attacking the relatively weaker backhand side of Rosol & broke the Czech's service again in the 10th game to win the 1st set 6-4 in 33 minutes.

 

 

Here are the 1st set stats -----

Federer had slightly more unforced errors in the starting 5 games of the set & after his game settled, he started attacking the backhand side of the Czech & from there on, the match completely changed.

 

 

2nd set

 

 

Federer continued the momentum & broke the Czech's service in the 4th & 6th set to comfortably win the 2nd set 6-1 in just 24 minutes.

 

 

Here are the overall match stats ----

The highlight of the match was the match that he converted all 4 of his break points & in the 2 matches, he has converted all 8 break points.

 

 

Federer will face Tsonga in the 3rd match on Friday.

 

1st QF (10:30 am start time) will be Stan Wawrinka vs Raonic followed by Nadal vs Ferrer & then Federer vs Tsonga followed by Djokovic vs Garcia-Lopez (who had an upset win over Berdych).

That was a bit of a nerve shredding start for Federer fans, with Roger getting broken early and appearing to take a while to settle in to the match. Whether it was down to the totally different conditions out there compared to yesterday, from a cold, possibly more heavy feeling on the court, to a beautiful warm sunny day, who knows.

Lukas Rosol came out very strongly, serving well and hitting powerful shots from the baseline. Eventually Roger worked himself past the initial frustrations and managed to break back levelling the score at 4 games all.

From then normal service was resumed and Roger progressively took greater control and despite dropping the level of his serve slightly in the second set, he closed out the match in straight sets, 6-4 6-1, and will face Jo Wilfred Tsonga in the QF tomorrow.

When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a Roger Federer to smile.

Sorry, its impossible to post full match links. ATP media PR Team reports those & then Youtube, DailyMotion tend to remove those, so, its a bit impossible to post full match recording these days...

 

 

Three violations lead to banning of the channel...

I hope that the ATP will allow full match recordings to be posted in an archive which will be something to treasure once Roger does retire from the Tour ...
