The likes of Prince William, Kate, Andre Agassi & Steffi Graf, and Rod Laver were treated to a special display today as Roger Federer put on another masterclass performance, beating Youzhny 6-1 6-2 6-2 and improving to a 14-0 head to head record against him, not to mention gaining entry into his 32nd major semifinal. The numbers are just staggering as to what this man has achieved!
While my hopes for a 7th Wimbledon crown went way downhill two days ago with Roger's medical timeout for back injury and his obvious difficulty with movement around the court and serving abilities, today I am starting to feel some renewed hope. Along with his normal beautiful shots we have gotten used to, I was very impressed today with his defensive skills and his ability to turn defense into offense. There were several times he looked completely out of a point, but he was able to turn it around and end up hitting a winner out of nowhere. Very encouraging as we think ahead to his match on Friday against Novak Djokovic. Roger really seems to raise his game when royalty is in the house. Can someone please invite the Queen to Friday's match?!!!
And as a special treat, Myla and Charlene were somewhere in the vicinity for Daddy's match, along with the lucky ladies who get the privilege of watching out for Roger and Mirka's little princesses.
And here's a You Tube link of them at the match. So sweet!
