I know he did not successfully convert a very important high volley (he had to smash the ball unreachably away, but got passed by Federer then) during his round robin match against Federer in the 3rd set tiebreak at the Masters Cup in Houston.
So, was there a similiar thing in Indian Wells as well?
I'm assuming Fumus is referring to the point with Andre serving at 4-4, 40-15 in the third set last week. Actually it was somewhat similar to the point you are talking about (match point of the Masters Cup round robin, right?). I don't think it was an overhead, but another high volley in almost exactly the same part of the court. It looked like the volley was sufficient, but Federer was SO fast, he go to it and went for the pass, not crosscourt this time, but down the line, surprising Andre (and everyone else, lol). Andre got his racquet on it but the ball just sat up, and Federer smashed a forehand to win the point. Fed went on to win the next three points and break.
Not that I want to dwell on it, but you asked...
