As usual Roger played the basic to win as quick as possible.

Again, another very solid performance. Serve was working pretty good, 1st serve percentage was adequate and he totally killed Grega's second serve.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Good stuff from Rog, he did what he had to do Now make it 20 in a row tmrw against Seppi

Zemlja was better than I expected, and tried a lot more than that Germelmuger. He played better than the scoreline indicates but overall was never going to trouble Federer without any major weapons bar a good serve

Very solid, toying around with Zemlja at times.
As expected Zemlja didn't have anything to hurt Federer with, except for a good 1st serve (which is why Fed's ROS looked a bit wobbly at times). But just like Gremelmayer earlier today, you just have to congratulate the guy with a great tournament.

Relaxerer.

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

7 Wimbledon titles

What do you mean? Number 3 is supposed to meet top 5 player in the first rounds of an ATP 250?

Your irony detector is not working smoothly. Reading the board entirely might help.

Good stuff. There were several shots where he was just toying with Zemlja, amazing to watch.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo
