Nice first round win.

Onwards and upwards Rog!

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!


17 Grand Slam titles
7 Wimbledon titles
302 weeks at #1

Nice to have come back to see Rog get a a nice, no heart-stopping win (except for 1st service game). I have to ad mit though, I'm on an ABB clothes campaign - Anything But Blue. While I was offline, I re-watched almost all his old matches, and jeez, the number of blue outfits --I swear he must have made a pact with the devil to wear that colour.. hehe

Oh and viruzz, I never got a chance to compliment you on a wonderfully honest and moving account of your watching Fed play live. Really enjoyed it.

And good to see all you guys again... Litotes, Fed's, Kat, mandrainer et al



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

Re: ♕*** Rotterdam 2013 ♕ Let's have glory again ***♕

I had the impression that Roger made some strange moonballing forehands landing not deep at all in the first part of the match : wonder if he tried to practise something or what.

I don't think De Bakker (who seemed to have a small injury yesterday) will be a problem, but Benneteau and maybe Simon are more dangerous.

This was how he played his FH during most of the Australian Open this year and it hurt him in many, many rallies, allowing his opponent to get the upper hand. In addition to this, we really didn't see the Nadalesque whip FH either at the AO.

thanks for your technical note

anyway, it's clear that since the beginning of this year, we've seen better things/he has been more encouraging on the backhand than on the forehand.

I hope the forehand will come back, I remember Luthi said that it was the actual barometer of his game, not the backhand as some say, which is more regular in Luthi's opinion, and I think nobody knows better than him.

Re: ♕* Rotterdam 2013 ♕ Let's have glory again *♕ - R1 RF d. Zemlja 63 61 - R2 De Bak

Tonight I finally am going to see Roger on the TV (yesterday there wasn't the broadcasting) after almost 2 months.
I hope hi finds his game. I didn't like him very much yesterday in some tough rallies.
In the 2ond set Roger wasn't moved so he managed to command rallies any time.
Of course we saw Zemlja had too much pressure and wasn't able to contrast Roger and I think the same is for De Bakker.

But important is to be at the best for the other rounds.
Best luck for tonight!!!
