Roger Federer showed the doubters that there’s still magic left in his game. Nearing his 33rd birthday, Federer beat Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka in the quarterfinals, then took out the powerful youngster Milos Raonic in straight sets.
And today in the final he came excruciatingly close to beating top seed Novak Djokovic before losing in a very tight, very well played 5-set thriller.
In the match Federer showcased his incredible movement and displayed some awesome serving, but Djokovic was just a touch tougher in the end.
The tour now moves to North America where Federer could again do damage on the quick hardcourts, so could a US Open title run possibly await. Or if healthy another shot at Wimbledon a year from now?
