I am new to tennis. I read posts here like Federer had no chance, if David plays like that Federer doesnīt win a GrandSlam anymore, Federer recieved a beatdown.
I wonder whether you watched the match? I did and I thought they were pretty even. Federer even had a setpoint in the second and who know what happens in the third then. Also if you have a look at the stats it is amazing how equal apart from Federers higher first serve percentage they are. Federer won more points on return and got into a lot more service games then David did, in both the first and second set. The difference is David made more breaks out of less recieving points won (Maybe he played more clever). David played more agressive than Federer and made more winners, but if he makes more errors also that doesnīt matter. Speaking of a beatdown here is wrong. And saying Federer in future has no chance anymore against Nalbandian also is wrong, not only because Federer said in the interview, that he didnīt play his best tennis, plus he didnīt like the slow surface.
Because I wonder why people always make a sensation out of Federer losses (is the same after he lost to Djokovic, ...), I make a poll to ask for your oppinion.
