Federer Has A Great Shot At GS No.18

Jul 11, 2015

Roger Federer has reached yet another Grand Slam singles final at Wimbledon and this time the Swiss maestro might even start as the favourite to win it all after a dominant display of tennis against the British hope Andy Murray in their semi-final clash, the majority of tennis pundits thought Murray would ride his 2015 form and the home crowd into another SW19 final in London but the Fed Express had other idea’s about that, Roger was simply sublime against Andy and the straight sets victory was even more impressive by Fed because Murray actually played pretty good tennis himself, Federer will face Novak Djokovic in a repeat of the 2014 final in which the Serb got up to beat Federer in five sets, unlike last year though, most are predicting that Federer will start as the favourite against Novak this time around due to his ultra impressive semi-final victory over Murray, Wimbledon great Bjorn Borg was quoted as saying “it is the best tennis he has seen from Federer for a decade” and John McEnroe stated that “it might have been the best serving display he has ever seen at SW19″, while it’s easy to make statements after such a fine performance from Federer, the great man himself will know that he will need to continue his dominant form against the No.1 ranked player in the world if he is to claim Grand Slam title No.18.

Djokovic has reached the final of all three Grand Slam events this year and is clearly the undisputed world No.1 right now, the Serb suffered his last heartbreaking loss to Federer’s Swiss compatriot Stan Wawrinka in Paris in the men’s singles final at Roland Garros, Roger will be aiming to repeat the heroics of his friend and Swiss compatriot when he takes on Djokovic for the championship at ┬áthe All England Lawn Tennis Club on Sunday, if Federer displays the form he showed against Murray in his semi-final then even the best player in the world right now might not be able to stop the Fed Express from running away with his 8th Wimbledon singles crown, Nole is the defending Wimbledon champion and will not give up his title without a fight, but Federer’s dominant serve and superior net game may give the 33 year old world No.2 the slight advantage coming into this one, there is no doubt that Roger will have to play well if he is to beat Djokovic on the centre court at SW19 on Sunday, anyone who beats Novak nowadays has to play well because the Serb is so ultra consistent in the major events, it has the makings of a classic final, let’s hope it lives up to the hype.
