Disgusting amount of luck

I will readily congratulate Roger for another slam title and wish all the best for my favorite Novak in the future, BUT:

The amount of SHEER LUCK Roger has/had in this match is absolutely disgusting.

(No, I'm not going over to Spartatards/Roger dissers/the like, and yes, I can see some karmic things after Montreal here, but nevertheless.)

I'd say BOTH.

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: Disgusting amount of luck

but why does luck always go to those who do not need it?

I think it's not just luck.

FAKERVIC = CHOKER!



Djokovic is in the mix as much as Roddick is.

Re: Disgusting amount of luck

This is the most bizzare match I've watched in a while. Novak is creating himself all the chances, then losing it when it matters. This match really was Djokovic's to lose, and he's doing it in spectacular style. First GS final though, and he's putting up one hell of a fight.

RESPECT for the Fed, so sure it was an ace, and it was millimetres in. I salute you!

Also respect to all those line judges who are getting those millimeter calls right.

Re: Disgusting amount of luck

So its all luck you say?

Its not the fact he kept the ball in play during long rallies, hit aces, came to net, slowed the play down about 9 times.

OH so its not that its just "sheer" luck

How or what is luck tell me how roger did not earn those points. HE simply beat novak on the points.

Novak was never in position to take the points he did not have open courts an dmissed the shots like roger did when he was broken - it doesnt matter roger will win.

Roger is not even at his best - anyone who watches tennis would know that. He normally hits around 50 winners per match atm hes below thirty.

Go Roger

LONG LIVE THE KING

1.Federer
2.Tsonga
3.Safin
4.Roddick

Fed plays average by his standards and still is likely to win that in straights...

I agree with you. Federer is not winning because of luck. He is too good for that. However I think the reason why his winner count is so "low" is due to his opponent.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.
