ROGER FEDERER

the recipe is simple yet but extremely rare:buckets of athletic ability coupled with gallons of mental tenacity are the core ingredients that produce a Tiger Woods,a Michael Jordan...a Roger Federer

Paris R2 : Federer - Karlovic 6:3 4:6 6:3


Now that was hilarious!

Federer wanted to finish it in straight so badly that he didn't even notice that he's just lost a set when he'd got broken. I wondef if he can defeat Nalbandian, but it would be reeeally difficult

As for Karlo, well, he didn't show anything we don't know about, but the percentage of 1st serves in and the amount of double fults were proper

Stats will appear here soon

Re: Paris R2 : Federer - Karlovic 6:3 4:6 6:3

In the third set Ivo had one chance to get to 3-3,didnt take it and that was.But anyway,great play and effort by Ivo Fantastic season.Good luck in 2008

As for the surface...It's an embarrassment for tennis when you see this kind of surface indoors.

Re: ROGER def KARLOVIC

You know the status of the court when Federer gets so many looks on the Karlovic serve.

An ok match by Fed. I thought he was too playful after winning the first set. Should've close it in 2.

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray

Re: ROGER def KARLOVIC

Federer won 46% of Karlovics 1st serves in the 3rd set, he was really reading Karlovics serve like a book, Karlovic could even have been bagelled in that last set if Fed would have converted the bps.

If Roger is really lucky he can win a set against the GOAT.

This is pushing it... it was more like - finally he got lucky enough to catch one of Fed's moments and got the set nicely giftwrapped by Federer.

Re: ROGER def KARLOVIC

Interesting match.

I thought Fed played pretty good at times. Returned excellent. I mean when was the last time Ivo won "only" 73% of the points behind first serve?!

I can easily see Ivo inside top ten next year.

To bad it's Fed vs Nalby already in the third round...
