Rotterdam R1: Federer def. Mahut 64 64

Solid performance from Roger, some nice shots along the way.

Mahut played a pretty good second set but the result was never in doubt.

Rotterdam R1: Federer def Mahut 6-4 6-4

Clinical from Roger, he will get better with the matches I guess. The surface plays nice and fast, great to see some entertaining points than endless baseline grinding...
Onto QFs

That was pretty dead.

Federer was average and when he stepped it up Mahut didn't really have the answers, that's about it.

Re: Rotterdam R1: Federer def. Mahut 64 64

Fun match, the service game Nico played to gave the break at 4-4 second set was beyond abysmal.
Nice one for Fed! Now go win the whole thing, Roger !

Good. Nothing special really. Shame he didn't manage to break at 4-3* but that's Federer for you...

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

He just wanted a clear scoreline and a double 6-4 was fine for him. Too good this Fed.

I hope Berdych will show him how average he is.
