Rome R2: [3] Federer def. Berlocq 6-3 6-4

Roger did whatever he wanted whenever he wanted to. When he decided to raise his level at the end of the second set he took over. Some beautiful shotmaking from Roger.

2003 Federer would have some trouble with this Berlocq.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

69 minutes. Good, he needs short matches to begin with here so he doesn't exhaust himself.

Highlights were the first three games and last two games. Roger was just coasting for the rest of it.

Federer really dropped from the 1st set but put the foot to the pedal to end the match in style.

Yeah, this definitely isnt Madrid lol. Slow as anything out there. Very windy too

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Good start & finish but rather up & down & I don't see him challenging for the title in this form.

I'm glad Fed didn't look too tired so soon after Madrid. He looked very good today, hit the gas when he wanted, conserved his energy when he could. Perfect match to start the tournament.

Re: Rome R2: [3] Federer def. Berlocq 6-3 6-4

Bit few too many unforced errors from Rogi, but not all too bad for first match on this kind of surface. I'm really glad he managed to end it without having to put 100% or waste a lot of time. He needs such matches at this point.

Fan list: Cilic, Federer, Coric


P.S. Watch out for Donna Vekic and Borna Coric, 2020. Hopman cup winners. - posted in 2011, let's see if it happens
