Roger Federer news…and other tennis!

Roger Federer news.  It is like the gift that keeps on giving.   The “Federer Tour” has come to an end.  Very unusual to see Roger playing tennis this time of year, especially doing an exhibition tour.  But how can you can complain.  (see above, the gift that keeps on giving!)  This tour included stops in Brazil, Argentina and Columbia.  Roger defeated Del Potro, 6 – 4, 7 -6, after losing earlier, 3- 6, 6 – 3, 4 – 6.  Roger proceeded to praise Del Potro, (that is Roger), saying he could become #1 in the world with the proper training and focus.  Roger has been a big fan of Del Potro ever since he lost to him in that five set thriller in the final of the US Open.  I would assume Roger will now take some time off for rest and family before getting himself ready for 2013.  Looking forward to the Australian Open in January 2013.

In other tennis news, Kim Clijsters defeated Venus Williams 6- 3, 6- 3 in a “farewell match”.  Kim officially retired at this past US Open.  She will be missed.

Looking forward to tennis in 2013.  Hope Rafael Nadal will be back and in form for Australian Open.
