The tennis star Roger Federer has once again proven to the world he is the Tennis king after defeating Stan Wawrinka on Sunday’s match at the Indian Wells Title. Federer termed his experience as a “fairytale” and was proud to claim the championship again.
This has been his best performance since 2004 where he finished at position one with 18-0, he now stands at 13-1 on the year and 6-0 against his fellow top ten opponents.
The Indian Wells Title match that was held one day ago was one of the best and the toughest as both Federer and his opponent Wawrinka are well known gurus in the tennis world.
It was an almost easy game for Federer as he broke in the tenth, fourth, and twelfth games winning all the sets in the second match, while Stan only broke in the first game of the second set. The first set seemed promising for Stan when he answered Federer’s love-15 hole with an ace out wide and won for 30-15. Federer however managed to break through all of Stan’s forehands and won the first set.
The second set saw Wawrinka win the first three points on Federer’s serve and had three break-point chances. Love-40 marked the second break point that Federer has ever faced in the entire tournament. Wawrinka pushed himself and broke Federer after 42 consecutive holds of serve and recovered after being broken the entire first set.
Stan Wawrinka did show his mastery of the game, and after many backhands, forehands, and angle shots, Roger Federer managed to pull through the entire tournament and emerged the champion. Upon being interviewed after the match Wawrinka gave his congratulatory message to Federer amid tears and even afforded a few jokes, he even acknowledged that he was Federer’s biggest fan after his match in Australia. Federer on the other hand had this to say, “What can I say?
This has been a fairytale week once again, I came here for the first time 17 years ago. To be the champion again, I can’t tell you what it means to me.”
