That was not good. And he was broken by another nobody.

Maybe he is just jerking around because of the weak opposition? If plays like this against top players he might eat triple bagel.
And Alves didn't played that good at all. It was Federer who made him look good.

Overall a piss poor performance from Roger. Some seconds of brilliance, but moreover, tons of UEs (netballs, balls wide, balls long, you name it, all of it was there - ErrorFest complete!), lackluster movement, all-in-all plain horrible. If Roger continues to play like this, he's TOAST in the next round. And I don't even want to think of him meeting Djokovic or - in case all Gods in Heaven smile on him during the rest of his run - Nadal.

Great fight by Alves, though, especially in that second set. Gave his all. Funny grunt btw, he sounds as if he's getting spanked at each and every point he plays.

In all, Alves' playing level surely didn't match his ranking position. Same went for his opponent, but in a slightly different direction.

A win in straight sets anyway... Still a lot better than a win in 4, a win in 5 or worse.

Does anyone else find it really sad that Roger Federer, whose life revolves around the tennis tour, has "never heard of" Alves? Someone that actually plays on the tour should have at least as much knowledge of the other places as the average MTF poster.

If Federer manages to play like this and still win the title, I'm going to be very bitter.

Re: Federer d. Alves 6-3 7-5 6-4

first post says it all

he had a couple of such a shameful UFs especially in second set, when he had one or two break points, unwatchable...

let's see if he steps it up

His serve may carry him to semifinals. But after that he's a toast!

Awful stuff from Federer. I have a feeling that Stepanek is going to beat him

The more I see him play the more I'm convinced it's all over.

Oh Roger.

Roger won't be beating Nadal or Djokovic again if he continues to play like this.

exactly, if he performs like today, Sexy will do what he does to all the other WTA players , perform le worm on Fed thus making him his newly crowned bitch (two wins in a row, after all)

but if Mirka has any saying in it, he'll have to step it up

Awful performance by Federer, especially on break points. The only thing he did consistently well the whole match was serve. He's definitely going to need to raise his level of play for his next match and the following matches.

Give credit to Alves though. He really battled out there and didn't go away at all. I was impressed with the kid.
