#22593 Match report, Pics and Video Highlights of Roger Federer vs Novak Djokovic Wi...

I have been holding my breath today, hoping against hope that Roger would defeat those demons that impose the stress of hope and expectation, combined with the struggle to maintain high levels in performance that the body inevitably has to deal with more and more as each year passes by.

Sadly it was not to be this time.

All in all he has had a very good Wimbledon, progressing through the rounds in imperious form, only to be foiled at the last hurdle by a younger player at the peak of his career, who reached his best form in this tournament at the critical moment.

Yes I am desperately sad that Roger didn't fulfill his dream of an 8th Wimbledon title this year, but looking on the positive side he has not lost any ranking points as he made it to the semi finals again :)

Roger Federer has been magnificent, magical and magnanimous and I for one wish him well in his future endeavours.

Must admit I was incredibly nervous before this match, not helped by all the pro Murray media hype here in the UK. But goodness me, was Roger ever determined and up for the challenge today! His serve was stupendous and he kept his focus and was cool when others would have surely gone to pieces. A most creditable win and I am sure I am not alone when I wish him the very best of luck for the final. He certainly has worked hard for this 8th Wimbledon crown and richly deserves it.

Here's what he had to say in his post match press conference.

Roger Federer has certainly given his fans a lot to smile about so far this year at Wimbledon, and he now has much to think about too as the opposition gets tougher in the closing rounds.

It was a scintillatingly delicious performance from him this evening, almost casual at the end, closing out match point on the sixth attempt. He looked perfectly relaxed about it and I for one felt no pangs of anxiety. The confidence was there that he would take it in the end.

It is clearly evident that he has adjusted to and is now benefitting from the change to the racquet with the bigger area of strings. He appears to have gained greater power on his shots for sure, and good to see him enjoying himself on court too.

Posted by Wendy_redRobin on 02 June 2015 - 12:26 AM

Thanks guys .... Was getting apprehensive about the outcome of this match as Gael is such an unpredictable and athletic player. Unfortunately ITV did not screen the last three sets today so was left struggling to see the ball on a blurry stream, which was a strain to say the least :(

They did show a fair bit of Nadal's match however and I was impressed by young Jack Sock, who did well to win a set.

Fingers crossed for the QF tomorrow. Let's hope that today served as a good warm up for Roger and he will step onto court feeling fresh and ready to cope with what Stan will inevitably throw at him.

A lovely moment at the net. Damir Dzumhur is another young player who has had Roger as his idol ....

Ah, have just caught up with this match. Great to see Roger has wrapped things up fairly comfortably in straight sets :)

It looked fairly breezy on court and it took Roger a few games to settle and find his range. I wonder if playing on different courts really does make that much of a difference for players. Philippe Chatrier vs Suzanne Lenglen in Roger's case. To the amateur eye things look very much the same, but some comms say that one court plays faster than the other.

Am keeping an eye on the scores for Gael Monfils vs Pablo Cuevas as the winner there will play Roger on Sunday and that could be a much more testing match so it is to Roger's advantage that he did not have a grind of an exhausting contest today.
