Canas beats Federer again

For the second time in a fortnight Guillermo Canas has beaten Roger Federer again and this time it was at the Miami Masters to advance to the quarter finals.

Canas has managed to do what so many players failed to do for most of last year and part of this year and that is to beat Federer and for him to hand Federer back to back defeats is something special.

I think some other players must be wondering what formula he uses to beat the world number one and also Federer must now trying to work out his plan to overcome him or hope that he will be on the other side of the draw next time.

I hope that Canas will take advantage of his win this time and proceed to the semis at least of this tournament because two weeks ago when he beat Federer at the Pacific Life Open he went on to lose the next match and was out of the tournament. He lost to Carlos Moya in straight sets in the third round.

The quarter final match that I am looking forward to is the match between the two Andys, Roddick and Murray. Murray has been playing well lately and I would like to see how he fares against Roddick who is also playing some good tennis at the moment.

Meanwhile in the Sony Ericsson Open, Serena Williams beat Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-1 in a repeat of the Australian Open Women's final. This is the first time these two have met since the final at the Rod Laver Arena and I had expected Sharapova to give a bit of a fight this time around but in the end it was nearly like the Australian Open.

Guillermo Canas reached the final of the Miami Masters but lost to Novak Djokovic.
