day 2369 – federer comeback

it was pretty hard to watch this match as it wore on; probably one of the hardest federer matches i’ve ever watch him play. i could see federer’s movements are compromised and i know he was feeling lots of discomfort but still playing relentlessly until the end. his amazing efforts coming back to win a five setter. i would sacrifice my sleep any day to watch his play. it was the first time i went live on instagram so a friend without cable could watch the end of the match

day 2295 – federer triumphs

i’ve been coughing my lungs out for past four days and it seems to be getting worse even with all the medication i’m taking. i’m sure my coworkers don’t want a person coughing so much to be around the office. a sick day to stay at home watching federer play in nitto finals tournament. really good match for federer where he dominated against djokovic and earned a spot into the semifinals. i can’t wait to watch him play next round

day 2172 – federer wimbledon

waking up for a federer wimbledon final at 6am was never in question. although it pains me to see federer lose after pouring his heart out, his play was still amazing, matching his opponent shot for shot. in my heart he won the match because how unfortunate is it to lose three tiebreaks. i do however wish i had a chance to take a quick nap before a working a colour belt test. good thing it went smoothly and i can go home and use what’s left of the weekend to rest

day 2040 – federer record

gladly waking up early for another one of federer’s finals. this one is extra special as he’s going for his one hundredth atp title. i’m so happy to witness federer making another history breaking record and reaching the century club. it’s such a treat watching him on the court; he’s one of those players that explemifies finesse to perfection. watching him really makes me itch for some tennis. i hope he continues to play a few more years and chip away at more records. i only wish one day i can watch him play live and meet him in person

day 1854 – treadmill trek

walking through the woods and running through the city while watching federer play the game he knows best. a rare day in the gym without doing squats or any barbell related exercises. i don’t usually do cardio at the gym aside from warmup, but i had to try out their new treadmills with these cool features. i didn’t do any compound movements, but it was enough to know that my shoulder is still nowhere near normal functions. all i wanted to do was insert myself back into some activities

day 1692 – indian wells

the amount of output yesterday got me and my body good so i decided it was a sunday worth letting my body recover a little. so many body parts are currently quite shattered so taking time off for one or maybe two days isn’t too much to ask for. even if i forced it, i would only be half assing my designated heavy leg day. instead, i spent like how most people treat sundays, relaxing and watching indian wells finals. i’m very disappointed federer lost the match, but he just wasn’t on his game from the beginning

day 1551 – atp baselĀ 

in the wake of a heart breaking day that made me think the unsaid disappointment was the final deal breaker i’d allow for. i should really be getting more sleep during my recovery period, but waking up early for tennis is well worth it when it’s a federer match. he’s truly amazing to watch as he pulled through for an impressive eighth title at basel. i am also hoping to save up enough money soon enough to watch him play in person one day. i already missed out the opportunity to watch andy roddick live, i really don’t want to miss a second chance

day 1071 – sky watcher

woke up early to catch some wimbledon action and federer didn’t disappoint; an amazing two set down comeback gets him a spot in the semifinals. i didn’t feel up to par at training tonight which really brought me down. i can only blame myself because i know i made a bad judgement call prior to and i can’t let that happen again. spectating some flag football action under the white wispy clouds and ending the night with mo eased my mind a tad

day 911 – federer action

image

staying up later than late to watch federer in semifinal action. it was painstakingly difficult to watch federer go through the first two sets. it’s a rarity to see him thrown off his game, where he had some unfederer hacks. i guess he also has a knack of making the game of tennis look so effortless. he fell in a deep hole from the very beginning but i am glad he pulled out his tricks and put together a good third set. i would’ve been beyond disappointed if it was a straight set match. nonetheless federer still had a dominant aussie open

day 907 – aussie open

so jelly my friend is catching all the australian open live. i wish one day i will be able go to watch live grand slam matches especially at us open. it was my goal to watch roddick play in person, but he retired much too soon to my dismay. now i will rest that hope on a live federer match one day. i guess in the meantime i’ll settle with watching federer play his quarterfinals match tomorrow night
