Roger Federer vs Dominik Koepfer: Preview

Roger Federer

Swiss legend Roger Federer played his first match on Clay two weeks back in Geneva in two years but with progression, he is looking more and more himself and is pushing up the ranks. In Paris, he has already defeated two of his old foes, Denis Istomin and Marin Cilic.

He defeated Istomin in straight sets in the first round and then got the better of former US open Champion Marin Cilic in four sets 6-2,2-6,7-6(4),6-2 on Chatrier on a beautiful Paris evening. He looks focused and knows the weapons he has, but admirably seems to take his journey one step at a time. 

His opponent, Dominik Koepfer has been in amazing form this Clay season. He reached the quarter final of the Geneva Open and has dropped just one set in Paris this week. He defeated local Mathias Bourgue in the first round and knocked out 30th seed Taylor Fritz in the second round in four sets 6-3,6-2,3-6,6-4.

Roger Federer will go in as the favorite to win the match but Koepfer will not make things easy for him. The German is coming off a brilliant victory over Fritz and will be confident coming into the match. But Federer’s class will out shadow the him and his best chance to get a set off Federer will be if he serves well. Expect a tricky match for the Swiss, but he is likely to make it to the Round of 16.

Prediction: Federer to win in four sets.
