Roger Federer produced an absolute masterful display of all round Tennis as he hit 25 aces, 44 winners and just five unforced errors defeating Gilles Muller 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 in 1 hour & 34 minutes to reach the Round-3 of Wimbledon for the 12th time in his 16th appearance at the championships.

Some Key Stats from the match ::::

 

  • 69th match win at Wimbledon
  • 127th match win on Grass court
  • 959th career match win
  • 1500th ace on grass court - only the 3rd man after Goran Ivanisevic & Ivo Karlovic (aces counted post 1989)
  • 54th time when Roger Federer has reached Round-3 of a major.
  • Federer is now 54-1 in Round-2 of majors.
  • 100th match win against Left Handers in his 135th match vs Lefties
  • Federer has now won 90 matches in 102 matches vs Left handed opponents not named Rafael Nadal.
  • This was the 7th time in a major (slam) when Roger Federer hit 25 or more aces in a match & 1st time, after the Wimbledon 2009 final vs Andy Roddick when Federer had hit 50 aces.
  • Federer has beaten Muller thrice before - Indian Wells 2005, Bangkok 2005 & US Open, 2008. All these three times, Federer went on to win those three titles after beating Muller.

 

1st Set

 

 

Federer's service looked absolutely flawless & the 30 year old Muller had no answers to Federer's service. The Swiss maestro broke Muller's service in the 5th game & that one break of serve was sufficient as Federer served out the set (in the 9th game) winning the set 6-3 in just 23 minutes.

 

 

Here are the 1st set stats ----

 

 

10449914_618024158294269_148038619038874

2nd set

 

 

 

The first 7 games went on serve. The play had to be suspended after the 7th game because of heavy rain. For the first time in the tournament, the roof was closed on the Center Court. The next 4 games went on service & Federer managed to break Muller's serve in the 12th game to win the 2nd set 7-5.

 

 

The 2nd set lasted 39 minutes & here are the 2nd set stats ----

3rd set

 

 

Federer got the 1st break in the 4th game after Muller double faulted to give Federer a 3-1 lead. That one break of service was again sufficient as Federer served out the match in the 9th game of the 3rd set winning the set in 39 minutes.

As Roger said in the post match interview, that was a bit of a serving contest at times. His total tally of 25 aces, 44 clinical winning shots and only 5 unforced errors was both impressive and encouraging. There were few rallies, and all in all it was a fairly comfortable and stress free match to watch.

The only sharp intake of breath came when Roger slipped and fell awkwardly bending his left knee in what appeared to be a painful position, but he seemed fine and reassured fans that there was no problem there in his post match interview, saying "Everything is ok, I didn't think I was going to go down. But it is slippery. I'm happy I'm ok."

Its a pity the "copyright police" are quite so hot off the mark on removing the videos. If only the various tournament organisers would post more themselves, even if it means waiting a day to two for them to be posted to satisfy the TV companies, it can only be good for the sport by engaging fans and raising their interest in the sport :rolleyes:

Federer's Press conference

 

 

10506799_737578579619093_861951065316225

Q. Three times you have played Gilles before now and - you've gone on to win the tournament.


ROGER FEDERER: Oh, really? Ohh. Are you sure? (Laughter.)
I'll go check it out.

Q. Some sort of good-luck charm?


ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, we'll see about that. Yeah. I don't know. I'm speechless. Such a good first question. You know, normally don't start so nice. These press conferences are always more serious.
No, I'm happy to hear that. I'm very happy with the match today, because I knew it could have been difficult, you know. And we saw signs of it I think midway through the second set when I think for four straight games I didn't see, you know, much on his serve.
Then actually the rain delay kind of changed things around. I came out and I was a bit more clear of how I was going to return him.
It makes life difficult out there. It keeps the points short and serves nice and well. Swings the serve nice. I actually thought he was playing pretty quick.
I'm very happy to be through and happy to hear the news.

Q. What adjustments do you have to make with the roof closed as opposed to open?


ROGER FEDERER: Well, against a player like this you're more dependent on the serve and return and first couple of shots, so it doesn't change much against a player like him.
But it might change more against a baseliner. Of course if there was a lot of wind with the roof open. That changes things in a big way.
Today I thought it was cooler with the roof open, and then footing and tactics, I didn't change anything from before and after.

Q. I think it was Muller who wanted to stop play. Looked like he was the one...


ROGER FEDERER: No, no, no. I just asked him if he wanted to continue playing or have a sit-down basically just wait it out a few minutes rather than just leave the court and have the roof being shut. Because it was an outdoor event. I'm aware of that.
They started us with the roof open. They expected a big rain at 6:30, which never really came.
I think they did the right thing. I just don't think it's worth it to play for an extra few points here or there or for a few extra games here that somebody slips and gets injured. I'm sorry, it's just not worth it.
He was happy sitting down. That was it. Then they called it.

Q. I have to ask you about what do you think about the next match against Argentina?


ROGER FEDERER: I think we're not the favorites, but in soccer, as we know, anything can happen. I was very, very happy yesterday that we did qualify and that we did play a good match the way we did.
So, yeah, it was a nice, enjoyable evening. Clearly it's a huge match against Argentina with maybe the best player in the world right now, best crowds.
So it's going to be very special for all the players and the Swiss fans.

Q. You have played I think pretty much all your matches on Centre Court or Court 1 for the last decade. They started this year putting more women's matches on Centre and 1. They used to have just one per day. Any thoughts on that?


ROGER FEDERER: No, I didn't even know about it. So there you go.
No, I mean, whatever works for the tournament. Yeah, that they stay on schedule with all the matches, I mean, it's most important to just get it done.
Yeah, as long as there is a fair balance between -- like here you don't have night session matches, but at the US Open I think they started changing it up. We're not always second.
I think that's important, you know. So, you know, whatever works for TV, fans, and players alike, I'm cool with that.

Q. When you came off court, the interview you gave, you offered up fairly unsolicited some comments on speed of play. I wonder if you'd like to expand on your comments and wonder if they were inspired by watching a match on Centre Court earlier today.


ROGER FEDERER: No, I just think it's important that we, as players, play up to speed, you know, and don't exceed the speed -- the time limit, because what I don't want is that we lose viewers because we play too slow.

I was talking in particular if the points are short. You cannot take 25 seconds. I mean, I know you need to focus. That you can do in 10 seconds. Just can't be that we only see two points per minute. I just feel like we need to keep up the pace and obviously play according to the rules.
The rules are there not to be broken, but of course you need to give leeway to tough rallies and somebody who's got -- needs a bit more time. I'm fine with that.
I just think overall -- because I just realize it happened to me. I did watch some matches. I don't remember who it was. But they were playing so slow I was like, Okay, I really -- I can't watch it. It's like going too slow for me. That's why I said that.

Q. Did you catch the first match on Centre Court today? Any of it?


ROGER FEDERER: Not much, no. Why? Was it going slow?

Q. Comments afterwards by Rosol about it.


ROGER FEDERER: Well, it's the umpire's call at the end of the day.

Q. Average time was 25 seconds.


ROGER FEDERER: Well, then he's doing the right thing. Just. I guess. Is the rule 25 or 20?

Q. It's 20.


ROGER FEDERER: It's 20. Okay. So that's not so cool, then. That's an umpire's call, I mean, you know, really...

Q. Another really good day for you playing on world's best court. Your mom and dad are in the royal box. But then again, month in and month out you're traveling the world and meeting special people, playing the game you love. Aside from being a family man, what's the best part of being Roger Federer? What do you like about your life?


ROGER FEDERER: I feel very fortunate traveling the world, because I know that many people have that dream to be able to go to certain cities, certain countries, I guess.
I had that from an early age on. I was lucky enough to travel on vacation with my parents a couple of times a year maybe.
And then, as a junior, as well, was lucky that Swiss tennis supported me in a big way. So that's a nice thing.
Then to clearly do it as a family is amazing. Well, I train hard, you know, on smaller courts where nobody is watching to play on the big courts. So this is the big thrill for me.
Then clearly meeting different people from around the world is very interesting, I think. Yeah, those are main criterias.
And I love the game of tennis as it is. I think it's a wonderful sport on so many levels. It's fair play. It's nice. We don't have body contact, which I'm happy about. Even sometimes it would be okay, too (smiling). I'm joking.
So, yeah, there is many things I like about tennis, and I'm happy I still enjoy it today.

Q. Do you prefer to play a match like this just on two or three shots or play or hit more balls on grass, especially on grass?


ROGER FEDERER: I kind of enjoy both, actually. Yeah, I mean, I kind of like these sort of big serving matches. Like this pound-it-out feeling. You're like, is it going to be an ace again, kind of thing from him or me. I kind of enjoy that sometimes, even though it's not so funny if you're not getting into any return games and all that.
But I grew up playing a lot of those matches, and you needed to be able to stay calm and not get frustrated by it. Then all of a sudden you have this rally where you don't want to have and you need to win it you it's so much pressure on you. I kind of like that.
A guy coming forward you and you have to come up with passing shots. There is a bit of unknowns when that happens. I like that. Of course when you're playing more longer rallies, clearly you can be more tactical how you can play. Can be more frustrating at times, as well.
Both have a good part of it, but I'm happy I'm okay with both.

Q. Just to go back to the time between points, you were obviously on the player council for a long time. Is that something that came up? Seems like it's a rule that's not really enforced.


ROGER FEDERER: I think we did speak about it on the council. Was it last year, maybe at the beginning of last year? Is that when they enforced the rules again? Or this year?

Q. I think it was last year.


ROGER FEDERER: Beginning of last year. Right. And they were very firm on -- firmer. Basically we just said we needed to just enforce the rule, is that it? It wasn't a rule change. It was about enforcing the rule and tell the umpires to basically do what they are supposed to be doing -- and not just let it run its course every single time.
What you're going to see next is all of a sudden a shot clock. We discussed that as well. We said we didn't need to go that far. That the next council can decide. If that happens -- I wouldn't be surprised if that were to happen all of a sudden. Because you only just need a couple of guys always doing it, and that's when it happens.
We have seen it in so many other sports, people who push it too much, and then you have to go the other extreme to counter that.
Yeah, they have gotten a little less aggressive, the umpires, again, which is understandable sometimes. But I don't think all of last year I got a warning. Did I always play under 20, 25 seconds? I'm not sure, but maybe I do get the benefit for playing quick most of the time.

Q. The council, they had the new council get elected, but I don't think they have made a head.


ROGER FEDERER: That's going to be at the US Open, I think.

Q. With your experience with a lot of the same group of people, have you thought of someone who you think might be leading it or would be the best?


ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, there is a few names out there. I have a feeling who it should be, which I maybe gave. But I don't think that changes anything, because I think it's the council deciding at the end of the day who it's going to be.
We will find out at the US Open, but I won't tell you who I think it should be.

Q. On your returns on a surface like that when you play a big server like Muller, sometimes you choose to block the ball and sometimes you choose to come over it.


ROGER FEDERER: Right.

Q. Does it matter if you play a lefty slicer, a topspin serve, or hard, flat serve, or do you start coming over the ball more when you start feeling good about your returns?


ROGER FEDERER: I don't know. Yeah, I think it really depends on how you feel, number one. I go very much by feel.
Of course, tried to chip it or tried to come over in this particular match and then I end up not doing that. I go by feel a lot. For me, I think with my game it's important to use a bit of both.
That's what I did again as well today. In the beginning I tried to come over more, especially on the second serve. And then sometimes in key moments maybe I'd prefer to chip it, because that's what I have done historically the most.
But it is important to stay aggressive and have that danger, you know, that the opponent knows that can all of a sudden happen and he doesn't know when. Yes, it does matter if a guy serves extremely big or really close to the lines or uses the body well, which today we didn't both do very much which you don't see often on tour anymore.
It depends on so many factors. It's really hard to tell you when we choose to do what.
