2008 Showdown of Champions
Federer eyes strong 2009 start after Blake win
Thu 20 Nov, 04:12 PM
MACAU (AFP) - Roger Federer wrapped up his season with an easy win over James Blake in an exhibition match here Thursday before turning his thoughts to getting his 2009 season off to a flying start.
Federer, who also beat Blake in a one-set clash in Kuala Lumpur earlier this week, showcased his full shot-making repertoire in a 6-4, 6-4 win in front of an enthusiastic crowd.
The Swiss broke Blake once in each set to cruise to a comfortable victory over the 10th-ranked American, who ended Federer's bid for singles gold at the Beijing Olympics.
World number two Federer, hampered by a back strain and stomach bug at last week's season-ending Masters Cup, said:
"I've actually been feeling better and better even though I got a little sick again at the beginning of the week.
"But I felt like my body has been recovering since the last match against (Andy) Murray."

Federer, who has 13 Grand Slams -- just one behind American Pete Sampras's record -- said he was looking forward to a break before gearing up for the new season and January's Australian Open.
"The season starts early. You have got to be ready. You don't have like a month to feel your way into the year. You will be judged right at the end of January.
"Some predict sometimes stupid things, that the season won't be good if you don't win the Australian Open. That's a little bit unfair. I definitely have high hopes. I've been very successful at the Australian Open."
Federer not concerned by Djokovic closing in on ranking
又是小德啊~~~~ 怎麼這麼剛好 小費年初年終都得和他扯上關連 = ="
“I’m going to sleep well for a month. He (Djokovic) is not going to pass me anytime soon,”
Federer told a news conference.
“For me, honestly, ranking two, three, four, five, 25, it doesn’t really matter a whole lot, you know. For me it is either number one or being in the main draw,”
added the Swiss.

原來昨天打的是one set match啊~
Federer rallied from 3-1 down to win 7-6, taking the tiebreaker 10-7. His victory came days after a sore back contributed his struggles at the Masters Cup, where he failed to reach the semifinals.
“It has been a tough season with lots of traveling and I could just sleep for a month, I felt fine during the game, but obviously after a hard season I would need some time off. I’m glad we are at the end of the season and I will take it easy for a few weeks.”
After dominating tennis the last few years, Federer began the year recovering from mononucleosis. He still managed to reach three major finals and the semifinals at the fourth.
His U.S. Open win pulled him within one title of Pete Sampras’ Grand Slam record, but Federer was undecided on whether he would prefer to win his first French Open crown in 2009 or his sixth Wimbledon.
“That’s a pretty hard question to answer,”
“I’ll probably have the answer in August.”

Blake broke first for a 3-1 lead with some powerful groundstrokes and pinpoint serving, before Federer clawed a game back for 3-2 and served out to level the match at 3-3.
It went to a tiebreak where Federer showed his mettle to emerge a 7-6 winner in a hard-fought match-up interspersed with some lighthearted moments.
"There was some fantastic tennis tonight. I was very confident coming into the match today and I played pretty well so I'm happy,"
"James is a great friend of mine on tour and I love playing him."
"I couldn't quite get him today but he proved why he is a
said Blake, who beat Federer at the Beijing Olympics.
"There were some exciting points tonight but in the end he got the better of me."
"What do you plan to do after retirement? Are you gonna buy a sports club?"
JMac: "Buy a country"
Roger: "Yeah, I'll buy Switzerland"
Reclaiming top spot Federer's aim
By Ajitpal Singhajitpalsingh@nst.com.my
ROGER Federer aims to come back with a vengeance next year and regain his World No 1 ranking besides breaking Pete Sampras' grand slam record of 14 singles titles.
"It has been a difficult season this year. It was gruelling as the focus was on the Beijing Olympic Games. However, next year would be better and I'm looking forward to it,"
said Federer in a press conference at a leading hotel in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
"Of course my target is to regain the World No 1 ranking and win more grand slam titles than Sampras. I think it goes hand-in-hand in terms of achieving both targets next year."
Federer, a 13-time grand slam champion, has endured a difficult year, losing the top spot (in August) after 237 weeks and his five-year Wimbledon (July) streak to Spaniard Rafael Nadal.
"What I need to do is to take a good rest and plan things for next year. I need to prepare well and I believe I will get better,"
the Swiss World No 2 added.
"I need to get things in order right from the Australian Open next year. A great start would boost my confidence but it will be a tough tournament as others will also be gunning for a good start too."
On losing his Wimbledon title to Nadal, Federer said the event is very special to him and it will be great to either equal or break Sampras' grand slam record at the event next year.
"I love Wimbledon. It's every players' dream to win it. I've been there since I was a junior and I am honoured to have won it five times. It's one of my main goals for next year,"
said the 27-year-old Federer, who supports his hometown football club FC Basel.
When asked about life after tennis, Federer said he would probably continue being involved in the sport.
"I will contribute to tennis when I hang up my racquet. I don't know in what way yet but it's the likely possibility. But I'm not thinking about retirement just yet as I still have many more years in the sport."
Federer, who won a gold medal in the doubles in the Beijing Olympics, is winding down his year with an exhibition billed the 'Showdown of Champions' which also involves US duo James Blake and John McEnroe, and Sweden's Bjorn Borg, at Stadium Putra in Bukit Jalil today.
The format will see one set played between Borg and McEnroe followed by another featuring Federer and Blake. This will be followed by a one-set doubles match pitting Federer and Borg against the Americans.
"This will be a very special event for me. Blake is a very good friend of mine and then there are McEnroe and Borg, who I have never played with before. I'm very excited to spend time with them,"
Last year, Federer thrilled the Malaysian fans when he played Sampras in front of packed stadium in Shah Alam.

I’m back in shape, says Federer
(Monday November 17, 2008)
PETALING JAYA: Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer has shrugged off a back injury that saw him make an early exit in Shanghai and has promised to give Malaysian fans a treat in the Showdown of Champions at the Putra Stadium in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow night.
The former world number one, who suffered from back pains and a stomach upset at the Masters Cup, said that
the three-day break he had since losing to Andy Murray has helped him recover for the event.
Roger Federer of Switzerland will be the star attraction for the Showdown of Champions event at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil tomorrow.
“There is no miracle cure but the short break means I will be back to my best for the event,”
said the US Open champion in a tele-conference held here yesterday.
“I’m looking forward to my trip to Kuala Lumpur as I enjoyed my time here last year. Obviously, it is going to be different this time as then the focus was on Pete Sampras and myself.
“This time, there are two legends, John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg in the picture, as well as James Blake. I have never played against McEnroe before and I am certainly looking forward to it.”
Federer will also be taking part in a
at the lobby of the Petronas Twin Towers between 11.45am and 12.25pm tomorrow.
The Showdown of Champions will see Federer facing off with Blake while Borg and McEnroe will meet in a singles match. The quartet will then play a doubles match with Federer and Borg taking on the two Americans.
Federer, who won the Olympic gold in the men’s doubles, said:
“I used to play doubles when I was younger but the focus has been on singles and the Grand Slams events.”
On playing against the two legends, Federer said:
“My experiences at Wimbledon will help me relate to Borg and McEnroe who have been champions at Wimbledon as well.”
Meanwhile, a lucky tennis fan among those who purchase tickets for the Showdown of Champions will drive away Proton Satria Neo.
