Re: Five Matches That Defined Your Favourite Player's 2012 Season

Roger Federer

Wimbledon Final: Roger Federer defeats Andy Murray 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-4: Return to winning slams after failing to do so in 2011. 7th Wimbledon title, tied for most Wimbledon titles. Winning this match and title allowed Roger to retake his rightful spot at the top of men's tennis. Roger was able to bring his best tennis to defeat Murray in the finals. Great quality in end of set 2 and sets 3 and 4.

Cincinnatti Final: Roger Federer crushes Novak Djokovic 6-0 7-6: The true HC King showed how tennis should be played on the surface. Beautiful display of attacking tennis. Not broken all tournament. (shame there are so few fast surfaces nowadays)

Olympics Semis: Roger Federer defeats JMDP 3-6 7-6 19-17: This match showed how much Roger wanted the gold in singles. It was a brutal match that lasted roughly 4:30 hours. Unfortunately Roger was too tired and gave no fight whatsoever to the eventual winner. But there is still Rio in 2016.

Madrid Finals: Roger Federer defeats Tomas Berdych 3-6 7-5 7-5: First title on clay in almost 3 years. Showed the crying, complaining self-centered divas how to adjust to different surfaces like back in the day where the surfaces weren't all identical. Great tournament overall and one more important step in the quest to regain world #1.

Wimbledon R32: Roger Federer defeats Julien Benneteau 4-6 6-7 6-2 7-6 6-1: The fighting spirit Roger showed and the will to win were fantastic. Roger battled back issues and was able to outlast an inspired Benneteau. This match showed that Roger really loves the game of tennis and especially Wimbledon.
