Great, Fed! Kohli played very well in the TB, but still not enough... Fed for the TITLE

Pretty shit 2nd set from Fed, 4-1 up, then gets broken back and goes to a tiebreak, with kohli at one point 5-1 and 6-3 in the tb, fed played good to win that, champions mentality.

i really would have love to see a third set. kohli was finally playing well after walking out on court as if he were still asleep. oh well...very formidable stuff from Fed. Lapses here and there but overall good match from him.

Oh fuck yeah, great match. What a second set from Philipp. Impressive to see Federer turning the tiebreak around in such fashion too.

It is clear to me that Federer lost concentration in second set (and he thought he was going to coast to victory). Then his game fell apart when Kholi started playing well...

Real big dive for Fed in second set.

However the TB was very exciting..

Fed's serve has improved marginally from last time, his backhand is "normal". Forehand leaking some "snap". Concentration issues once again.

Only managed to watch from 5-1 Kohli in the TB, but Fed looked pretty awesome. Match point was

ROGER & JANKO & LE MAGICIEN & Stan & A-Rod & Novak & Rafa

Actually very good. Roger seems to fuck up TB's lately but this one was mentally very strong.
