Roger Federer began his quest for a record seventh title at the season ending Barclays ATP World Tour Finals as he defeated Milos Raonic 6-1, 7-6 (0) in an hour and 28 minutes to record his 1st win at this year's season ending finale.

 

 

Roger+Federer+Barclays+ATP+World+Tour+Fi

 

 

Roger Federer today equalled Andre Agassi's record of most number of World Tour Finals appearances. This is Federer's 13th successive appearance at the season ending finale. Though, Agassi qualified for 14 World Tour Finals/Tennis Masters Cup (but, he had to withdraw from 1995 due to an injury)...

 

1st Set

 

 

Federer's tactic of slicing paid rich dividends as Raonic's game looked out of touch in the first set. Federer broke Raonic's service in the 2nd game and 6th game to easily take the first set 6-1 in 25 minutes.

 

 

Here are the first set stats ----

2nd Set

 

 

Raonic gave a much better fight in the 2nd set. Not only his serving improved, but so did his returning. His inside out forehand looked frightening many times.

 

The Canadian had two break points in the 4th game after Federer lead 40-0. However, Federer managed to save the break points in 4th and 6th game and Raonic had a slight opening in the 12th game as well after Federer trailed by 15-30. But, Federer managed to hold on and it was tie-breaker time.

 

 

Tie-Breaker

 

 

In the last 3 months, Federer has won 13 tie-breakers and lost only 3. That tie-breaker form clearly showed up as Federer easily won the tie-breaker 7-0.

 

Roger Federer today won his 368th Tie Breaker & this was 6th time in his career when he won a TB 7-0 (2nd time in 2014).

 

 

This was Federer's 7th win over Raonic and he revenged his loss that he suffered vs the Canadian at Bercy Masters last week.

 

 

 

Here are the match stats -----

Federer's Hot Shot from the first set. A fine example of manoeuvring your opponent to create space for a winner

Roger certainly meant business when he came onto court last night, starting very strongly and capitalising on the more nervous beginning for Milos Raonic

Raonic settled down in the second set and played better tennis, taking the challenge to Roger Federer to hold his service games to keep the score "on serve". The slightly concerning thing for me was that although Roger would power through to a 40-0 lead in some of his service games, he seemed to relax as if job done, allowing Raonic to level to deuce and then run the risk of being broken, which thankfully did not happen.

It was a good win for Roger, giving a firm foundation for his 2014 World Your Finals campaign.

A good win, yes.  Nice to see him beat Raonic after Paris.  The second set was a bit of a worry but he got the job done.  Nishikori up next.  That's not going to be easy .

There's an old story related to it. He himself said to me, please call me Dr. Ivo, so that's why, I am always inclined to write him as Dr. Ivo :)... One of the best characters to have greeted this great sport :)...
