Roger Federer won his 2nd Round Robin match of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals for a 13th consecutive year as he eased past Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-2 in an hour and 9 minutes.

 

 

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

 

 

Roger Federer will qualify for semis tonight if:

 

 

(i) Andy Murray wins in 3 sets vs Milos Raonic

 

or (ii) Milos Raonic wins the match in 2 or 3 sets vs Andy Murray

 

 

 

Detailed scenarios are discussed here.

 

or in Simpler words, if Raonic wins just a set vs Murray tonight, then Federer will be through to the semi-finals of World Tour Finals.... This will be the 12th time in the last 13 years (only exception: 2008) when Federer will qualify for semi-finals of WTF.

 

 

& if Andy Murray wins in straight sets vs Raonic, then Federer at most would need to win a set vs Andy Murray on Thursday to 100% book his place in Saturday's semi-final...

 

 

1st Set

 

 

Nishikori started aggressively and had two break points in the 3rd game. But, Federer managed to hold and then immediately broke Nishikori's service to get to 3-1. There were no more breaks of service in the 1st set as Federer served out the set in the 9th game.

 

Federer won the 1st set 6-3 in 35 minutes. Here are the first set stats ----

2nd Set

 

 

Nishikori took a medical time-out after the first set. Federer broke the Japanese service in the 3rd and 7th game. Federer faced just one break point in the 2nd set in the 6th game which he comfortably saved.

 

The Swiss maestro closed out the match in the 8th game winning the set 6-2 in 34 minutes.

 

Here are the match stats -----

 

B2K6dpzIgAAOHBb.jpg

 

 

This was Federer's 70th match win of 2014. At the age of 33 years, 3 months & 3 days, Federer is now the 2nd eldest man in the ATP Open era to win 70 or more matches.

 

 

The following are the years where in, he's won 70 or more matches -----

 

 

1) 2003 :  78-16

 

2) 2004:  74-6

 

3) 2005:  81-4

 

4) 2006:  92-5

 

5) 2012:  71-12

 

6) 2014:  70*-11

 

 

Some interesting stats from the match :

 

 

  • Federer's 19th match win at O2 London, he is now 19-5 at O2, London (since World Tour Finals started being held at O2 in 2009).
  • Federer's 46th win at the season ending World Tour Finals in his 57th match.

With Kei Nishikori's recent record against Roger in my thoughts, and unhelpfully reinforced by the comms, it was with rather nervous anticipation that I sat down to watch this match. Maybe it was playing on Roger's mind too, who knows, but he seemed to be rather tense at the start of the match, making a number of unforced errors.

But, as usual, he appeared outwardly calm, unflustered and in control, quietly working out what to do next as in this stunning passing Hot Shot in the 4th game.

Roger continues to move well and didn't drop his serve, which was all to the good, sealing the ultimate win in two fairly straightforward sets.

This was not a really testing match, but compared to Group A which has seen a liberal helping of breadsticks so far, the matches in Group B have been a bit more challenging, but no desperate edge of the seat three set battles yet. Which as far as this Federer fan is concerned is a relief at this stage. Good to see a happy Roger with another straight sets win to his credit.
