Federer def. Benneteau 6-4, 7-5, 7-5. gets into the quarterfinals.

A combination of Federer playing like crap and Benneteau making the most out of his chance. Still, expected straight sets win but if Fed doesn't want to lose to Gonzalez again he better step it up.

I think this was just due to Fed being too overconfident after his destruction of Ancic, he probably expexted to tripple bagel Benneteau and the Frenchman actualy came to fight. (unlike Verdcrapo)

RG R4: Federer def. Benneteau 6-4 7-5 7-5

Total mug performance by Fed.

If he keeps playing like this he's going to eat a breadstick and two bagels against Nadal (if he manages to get to the final).

RG R16: Federer downs Benneteau 6-4, 7-5, 7-5

Expected straight set victory. Fed broke early in all three sets but couldn't maintain any of those leads though.

RG R4: Roger Federer def. Julien Benneteau 6-4, 7-5, 7-5

not the classiest act from Fed but did what he needed to for the most part, getting broken too much lately isn't a good sign though

next Gonzo

Yikes... that was not an encouraging display. Just awful.

Federer / Youzhny / Ancic / Raonic / Dancevic

Re: RG R4: Federer def. Benneteau 6-4 7-5 7-5

it's all federer's fault.

he was clearly no focused on the match, too shanked too many errors, 3 double faults (how many times do we see that?) 51% of 1st service. Argh, He also faced 10 bp. And bennetau wasn't even playing well.

That was a disgusting performance.

Re: RG R4: Federer def. Benneteau 6-4 7-5 7-5

what a snooze fest (is this a word??)

really a poor performance. roger being broken twice while serving out the 1st and 2nd set doesnt speak too well for him. RAFA will have another Rogi snacks if he plays the same way in the final.

anyhow congrats roger on another runnerup RG.

Not great play from Federer in my opinion, he was being too passive but it was enough today, Good fight from Benneteau

many times we see Fed in the same situation, and still capabl of winning the match then raise his game next ... but against Gonzo needs more than just good..

Re: RG R4: Federer def. Benneteau 6-4 7-5 7-5

roger continues to struggle this tournament

it will be a very one-sided final this year. that's for sure.
