Roger Federer will face Milos Raonic in the final of the Brisbane International presented by Suncorp after dismissing Grigor Dimitrov 6-2, 6-2 on Saturday.
 
Roger+Federer+2015+Brisbane+Internationa
 
World No. 2 Federer is looking to become just the third player in the Open Era to claim his 1000th tour-level match win, joining Jimmy Connors and Ivan Lendl.
 
The Swiss takes a 7-1 FedEx ATP Head2Head lead into the final against Raonic, though Raonic recorded his first win over the 33 year old last November at the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris. When they met two weeks later at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, Federer prevailed in straight sets.
 
Federer finished runner-up to Lleyton Hewitt on his debut in Brisbane last year and is looking to win his 83rd tour-level title in his 125th final.
 
After the first semi-final saw Raonic edge Kei Nishikori in two hours and 33 minutes, Federer required just 53 minutes to beat the fourth-seeded Dimitrov. The Basel native won 75 per cent of his service points, only coming under threat in the final game as he served for the match. He broke Dimitrov four times as he moved to a 3-0 mark in their FedEx ATP Head2Head.
 
"I was able to play straightforward tennis, like yesterday, just really aggressive," said Federer. "Against a really good player, it's a great result. Happy I didn't waste much energy like this. I'm fresh for the finals. Probably got a slight advantage over Milos in that regard."
 
Saturday’s win was Federer’s 999th in his ATP Tour career and he’ll be favourite to claim his 1000th career win on Sunday given he holds a 7-1 career record over Raonic.

That was a good win for Roger today, a relatively untaxing match.  Just what he needed with the final looming against the bullet serve of Milos Raonic tomorrow.

 

Also I am relieved to see, for the sake of both players, that the final has been scheduled for the evening slot which will mean that there is no problem with dazzling from the sun, which was apparent in this match at times.

One thing that amazes me, and here is an example in the next photo, is that Roger is not looking at the ball.  I've noticed that with regards to his serve too, he seems to look past the ball to a point in space ... unless the speed of the camera to capture an event is faster than the speed of the eye to react to what has just happened   ;)

Take this shot of a serve from a previous match ....

Have the alarm set and everything crossed for the final.  Lets hope Roger can make his 1000th win at Brisbane!!  :)
