Roger Federer produced another scintillating display of all round Tennis as he ended Novak Djokovic's 28 match wins in China (Beijing/Shanghai) spread over four years to reach the finals of Shanghai Masters 2014 for the second time. The Swiss maestro won 6-4, 6-4 in 1 hours and 35 minutes to set up the final clash vs Giles Simon on Sunday.

The match was played in an electrifying atmosphere with a full house. The atmosphere and the fans of both players made it look like a Davis Cup tie.

1st Set

 

Federer started aggressively and with a clear game plan of keeping the points short. He started approaching the net from the very first game. Federer got the first break in the 5th game and that one break was sufficient as Federer closed out the 1st set 6-4 in 38 minutes. Federer faced just one break point in the set.

2nd Set

 

 

Federer broke the World No. 1 in the opening game. Federer's service was at its optimum best and Djokovic inspite of being rated as the one of the best returners the game has ever seen couldn't put any pressure on Federer's serve.

 

Federer kept on putting pressure on Djokovic's service consistently and had eight break points in the 2nd set. Djokovic managed to save two break points (match points) in the 9th game. Federer how ever served out the match in the 10th game winning the match and the set 6-4.

 

 

Here are the overall match stats ----

As you can see from the stats, Federer was better than Djokovic in all departments of the game.

 

 

Federer produced some of the best volleys that I have seen for a long-2 time. Not only was his feet movement perfect, but, he kept Djokovic guessing and all the time and that's the main reason, why Djokovic made 20 Unforced errors on the forehand side.

Federer also played a double handed volley in the first set

This expression by Djokovic completely summarizes the day Federer and Djokovic had ---

  • Roger Federer's 983rd overall career match win.
  • Federer's 60th win of 2014.
  • Federer's 882nd match win against right handed opponents.
  • Federer's 308th match win at an ATP-1000 masters tournament level.

  • Federer has so far won 6 ATP-1000 masters tournaments in his career (only Shanghai Masters, Monte Carlo Masters & Rome Masters are the titles that desert him).

Must admit I was filled with nervous anticipation in the run up to this match, with the memory of Roger's epic battle against Novak Djokovic in the final at Wimbledon still fresh in my mind. But OH YEESSSSS!

BzrFISwIgAEvFmO.jpg


Was Roger ever on form today? A very well deserved win and I think my iPad will need ear muffs after all the shouts of encouragement I gave him .... :rolleyes:

BzrDPO8CMAAfHGE.jpg


It is so good to see Roger go out and play like this, specially after all the nay sayers who were writing that he should retire after his struggles with that back problem last year. Even the comms in this match were suggesting he would get broken in the second set, it would go to three and Novak would win. Just shows that Roger Federer is really something extra special when it comes down to tennis. So long as there is a will there will be a way. Roger wanted this win, he did not dip, he went for it and got it. He was happy and boy, were his fans too! .... I cannot stop smiling and it's not even the final!

Some excerpts from Federer's post match press conference ----

 

 

 

Federer on whether being hit by Djokovic's return revved him up even more:

 

 

BzqllyOIEAARanS.jpg

 

"No [laughs], I deserved to be hit, I messed up the volley."

 

 

 

 

#Federer on chances of ending the year as #1:

 

BzcFa2DCMAAU8uU.jpg

 

 

"I'm here to win tournaments, it would be great to win my fourth title of the season, I don't want to get ahead of myself."

I had hoped to watch the match of Roger against Djokovic....unfortunately did not manage to do so BUT luckily enough I know I can all the feedback from the forum. Wonderful to see Roger play and from the videos I just saw, he really played a high level tennis. Yes @wendy_Red Robin, he deserved it. C'mon Roger, you will make it tomorrow for the final against Simon. Best to you!
As always many thanks to all that concerned for the photos, videos and reports. Most grateful. Fingers crossed for tomorrow

Here's that 47 second game where Roger served 4 aces to go up 5 games to 3 in the first set .... sublime!

Hi Dim, unfortunately the full match of Federer vs Djokovic in Shanghai 2014 is not available at the moment as far as I can see. There are some HD quality clips on the page in the link If you click Here you will need to scroll down to find them.

This was a wonderful match and I sincerely hope that a complete video of it will be released in the future.

Sausan has kindly posted the link to their recent match at the IPTL in Delhi :)
