Federer Marks a Win in Just 52 Minutes of Starting Mutua Madrid Open
Last updated on May 9th, 2019
In his first game at the Mutua Madrid Open in past three years, Roger Federer has made a magnificent comeback with a 6-2, 6-3 win on the clay court. This red court win can be called special for Federer as his last game was a clay-court match against Dominic Thiem, which resulted in a loss. He also did not experience a single break point in the game.
While playing against Frenchman, Richard Gasquet, in his first Madrid Open in last three years, it never appeared that Federer was away from the court for a very long time. Within the first seven minutes of the game, he showed his flair and attained a lead of 3-0. He won the first set in just 23 minutes of the game.
The 37-year-old entered the third round of his first match in Mutua Madrid Open with a 6-3 win in just 52 minutes of starting the game.
There couldn’t be a more beautiful and impressive comeback for Roger Federer in the game at Madrid Open. His stats in this match were impressive, as the 20-time grand slam champion scored 28 winners to 20 unforced errors and did not receive a break point.
Along with scoring 13 out of 28 winners from his forehand, the fourth seeded player also got eight backhand winners and seven ace in the game. With this win, Federer has beaten Gasquet for the 10th consecutive time and has also won the last 22 sets.
On his first win with a magnificent comeback in the Mutua Madrid Open, Roger Federer said, “I think Richard was also maybe a little bit hurt from his match yesterday, so it was nice seeing him back after so many months being away from the tour with injury.”
“I think for both of us it was a special match being back here in Madrid,” he added.
Gael Monfils and Marton Fucsovics will be facing each other on Wednesday and the winner will be playing against Federer on Thursday.
With a magnificent comeback like this after three years in the Mutua Madrid Open, this match might serve as an inspiration for the newcomers and the players looking for a comeback in the sport.
