The tennis world is back on course again with Roger Federer finally back on the courts, and with a 6-3 6-3 win over Radek Stepanek. Considering he hasn't played in almost two months, the rustiness I expected to be there was very limited. His winners to unforced errors ratio was good, his second serve points won was strong, and overall he looked like he has been practicing hard during his time away. Really the only problem he had was serving out the match, in which he wasted quite a few match points and ended up getting broken. But he quickly broke right back in the next game to win the match.
Here is a video of his interview after the match with Sky Sport in which he talks about the match and his plan for the rest of the year:
And the part for me that was almost exciting as seeing Roger play again and playing so well was seeing his girls finally in his box for a full match. Though obviously not too interested in watching Daddy play, Myla and Charlene were very well behaved through the entire event, looking at books through much of it. I hope this is just the beginning of seeing them frequently watching their dad work. Here are some cute pictures of the adorable Federer twins.
