Federer def Ferrero 6:3 6:4

Watch out! The true JesusFed is back!

Great week for Juanqui. I wouldn't discount a Top 10 comeback for him.

LOL at the scoreboard!

40-0 -> Federer winner -> 40-15 -> 40-30 -> 40-40 -> Federer winner

Nice sequence, huh?

PORTUGUESE ARMADA!!!

Re: Federer def Ferrero 6:3 6:4

Whether or not Fed manages to overcome Nadal in the final (assuming that it is Nadal he'll meet there), he has reestablished the fact, that even though clay might be his worst surface, there still aren't a lot of players who can trouble him on the surface. Even clay lovers like Ferrer and Ferrero were defeated fairly convincingly.

Re: Federer def Ferrero 6:3 6:4

He isn't quite in top form again yet. True, he hit 33 winners, but he also smacked 26 unforced errors to go along with that.

Re: Federer def Ferrero 6:3 6:4

Very good performance. Ferrero played as he has done this week but was simply outplayed by Roger. Some of his volleys were awesome.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Federer def Ferrero 6:3 6:4

What is wrong with you JCF?
Losing that 5th game in the 1st set totally knocked the stuffing out of you. Where's the fighting spirit?

Those 7 games in a row that Federer won obviously decided the match but Ferrero had a real chance to get back. He should have saved that 3rd MP and had he done so, it would have been a tremendous confidence boost and shift in momentum.

Oh well, I guess it's been a good week all the same. But he's still got a way to go if he wants to get back to his old self. He'll need another run like this in at least two more clay tournies to get the old confidence back and challenge for a top 10 place.

Re: Federer def Ferrero 6:3 6:4

Great, convincing performance by the FedMan!
Still not completely in top-form (the first half of the first set showed quite a bit of sloppiness here and there) - but very close to it nevertheless.
Very enjoyable match.

Kudos to JFC too, for an awesome tournament week - glad to see him back on track. He did his best against Rogi, but it just wasn't enough.

Re: Federer def Ferrero 6:3 6:4

Oh yea, he's back...more winners than UE (though it's not quite there yet) and some great net game.

Some real smiles from him and joy of victory from him, I do believe he is finally happy with how his game looks like. What an improving player he is, to start of shaky, and just get progressivly better. Amazing.

Yea, it would be easier for Rog against Berdych, but I want to see that Rog-Rafa final, it's been long enough, and Rog should get a feel of him before RG.
