Roger Federer Defeated James Blake in Macau Tennis Showdown Exhibition Tournament

World no. 2 Roger Federer defeated James Blake in Macau Tennis Showdown exhibition event on Thursday. James Blake threw some tough challenges for Federer, but the 13-grand slam winner did not have too much problem to pull off a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Federer. Just two days before the match, Federer defeated Blake in a one-set clash in Kuala Lumpur. Last year, Pete Sampras defeated Roger Federer on the same court and that was a welcome return for the Swiss star. Crowds supported Federer a lot which, he thinks, was because of their sympathy stimulated by his defeat to Pete Sampras last year.

The most attractive game in the Macau Tennis Showdown exhibition on Thursday was between two legends: Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe. The match created a nostalgic feeling among many who could clearly recollect the experience of many high-profile matches of 1980s between McEnroe and Borg. Bjorn Borg won the one-set encounter 7-6 in tie-breaker which seemed time could not leave any mark in their game.

One week earlier, McEnroe defeated Borg in Malaysia and the two will meet once again on 22 November in Bangkok, Thailand.
