Oh yes, I was happy about that!
He didn't really say he didn't deserve to be in the top 5 (since he wasn't at the time) but he said he didn't have the firepower to match it with the Roddicks, Hewitts, etc and didn't have what it takes to make it to the top 5. He called him a claycourter many times too. It was so funny seeing him having to compliment David in his last three matches, after the first Federer match and the Coria match. Every time the other commentator Geoff Masters brought up the first Federer match, Fred had to add in that Federer was playing at a very low level. (He was being so damn repetitive)
Yes, this is my first post here in this forum. I have been tempted to post here for a long while, especially since I have a long holiday at the moment. David is my favourite men's tennis player and has been since Kooyong in 2004. We don't get much tennis shown on TV here in Australia on free-to-air. It's funny that we got the Masters Cup on TV, while not getting to see any of the French Open and we only got the quarter finals onwards of the US Open. (Glad we did though) Anyway, since I stopped lurking, I guess I'll probably post more in the future.
