1st round: Stylish Federer off to impressive start
Roger Federer d. Yen-Hsun Lu (TPE) 7-5, 6-3, 6-2
Roger Federer justified his role as favourite to win the 2009 men's title by swatting aside the challenge of Yen-Hsun Lu from Taipei 7-5, 6-3, 6-2 on Centre Court where, despite overcast conditions, the new roof remained open throughout.
Federer finery finds favour

2nd round: Spanish stroll for Federer
Roger Federer d. Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP) 6-2, 6-2, 6-4
Federer's display in a 6-2, 6-2, 6-4 win in the Centre Court sunshine was another masterclass of tennis. It was already becoming clear that the Swiss will take some stopping at the 2009 Championships.

3rd round: Federer drops set on way to victory
Roger Federer d. Philipp Kohlschreiber (27) (GER) 6-3, 6-2, 6-7 (5-7), 6-1
There was, it should be stressed, never the slightest danger of Federer going down to a shock defeat but this was not the first time in the opening week that, faced with lesser opposition, he experimented with tactics in the knowledge that he would not suffer unduly.
Swiss so serene after blip

4th round: Federer sweeps past Swede
Roger Federer d. Robin Soderling (13) (SWE) 6-4, 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-5)
Even though the result was never really in doubt, it always felt like a close match, with Soderling riding high on the back of a potent serve, which was broken only once. Unfortunately, he never captured Federer's.
Federer admits he feels 'perfect'

Quarter-final: Flawless Federer tames Karlovic serve
Roger Federer d. Ivo Karlovic (22) (CRO) 6-3, 7-5, 7-6 (7-3)
This was proof beyond doubt that Federer has the dangerous Karlovic's number. The Swiss had won eight of their previous nine matches and though those nine matches contained 12 tiebreaks, Federer had won 11 of them. By increasing that number to 12 in this quarter-final, Federer set the seal on a satisfying afternoon.
Federer sings praises of older players

Semi-final: Federer flies into seventh straight final
Roger Federer d. Tommy Haas (24) (GER) 7-6 (7-3), 7-5, 6-3
Federer's inexorable stride swallowed up another Wimbledon milestone as he hammered his way into a record seventh consecutive men's singles final by sweeping aside Tommy Haas of Germany 7-6, 7-5, 6-3 in two hours and two minutes.
Federer's record collection keeps growing
