Federer def. Stepanek 6-3 6-2 6-7 7-6

Good win for Federer but he should've got it done in three.

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

I didn't watch it. What happened in the 3rd? Seems like he was cruising in the first two.

According to the swiss TV, Federer was playing like a normal human being in sets 3 and 4.

Good atmosphere in that match, from what I could see.

Stepanek saved two match points at 5-6 in the 4th on his own serve. Too bad he couldn't push it to a 5th.

He choked, that's what happened.

I'd rather wait those extra 5 seconds seeing those boobies bounce than watching some fatass kid burn away his bigmac meal.

I don't know, call me old fashioned but I like women

Here are the last few points of the deciding TB.

A few pts are missing due to the stream acting up. But at least you get to catch a glimpse of Federers match.

BlakeJamitis - It's a Davis Cup match!

Great win for Federer - sometimes he needs sets taken off of him, after all he is human.

He's been doing it for years, at least this time he didn't repeat the disaster of 2003 against Hewitt.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Nice win Roger

Sounds like it should have been done in 3, but job done with relative ease.

.Roger Federer.
