Federer serves 3-2
Canas ran a lot during this game, Federer hit double fault to deuce, Canas breaks his serve with a beautiful lob! Game Canas 3-3

Canas serves 3-3
Federer is not patient anymore, and his ue count goes up Canas wins the game easily, 4-3

Federer serves 3-4
Shaky serve game for Federer, but he steps up in the end and with some help from Canasī errors, confirms his serve 4-4

Canas serves 4-4
Easy game for canas, Federer cant win a single point. 5-4

Federer serves 4-5
Roger goes to the net in every single point, and it works. Canas passes him only once. Game Fed 5-5

Canas serves 5-5
Federer starts strong, but then Canas hits four great serves in a row to win the game 6-5

Federer serves 5-6
Roger started well again, with a winner on the net. But then he hit an ue from the b/h, a double fault and gets passed once to go 15-40. Canas wins with a big forehand to Rogerīs body.

Canas was a lot more regular, and his serve was just awesome. Federer had too many unforced errors, and played crap on the big moments.

make it tow hitman.

As there was no way I could've seen the match I enjoyed your report very much. Even though I know there would be the "wrong" winner in the end.
