Good job by Fed.

I really liked the 2nd game of the match where Fed broke Hrbaty by hitting some awesome shots.

Awesome display. His sixth title is almost in the bag imo.

Roger Federer. Legend.

Hrbaty played a stunning point in the first set and then he sat next to Roger and talked to him at 5-2 in the third set. Great match. Dominik and Roger both had fun.

LMAO@Dominik at 2-5 in 3rd set

he went and sat next to Roger and they chatted all thru end change

I bet he was singing "Its Hrbaty and I'll cry if i want to"

Nice Winner - UE ratio. 39:10. Now it gets tricky against Soderling in Round 2.

Talking Re: Wimbledon R1: [1] Federer defeats Hrbaty 6-3 6-2 6-2

loved how Hrbaty sat next to Roger before he served for the match, he had a nice fun chat with him

great spirit and a fun match albeit one sided

60th in a row

Federer said in interview afterward that Hrbaty said to him it might be his last Wimbledon so he wanted to enjoy it

Lovely moment.
