Madrid R3: Federer defeats Blake 6-2 6-4

Clay-god Blake wasn't at his best today. Blake was playing in hard-court mode through out the whole match.

6-2... Blake's attitude was disgusting. Never tried to put an ounce of spin on any forehands.

A bit low on the first serve but overall a good performance by Roger. Kolya or Duck next.

Roger Federer. Legend.

Anyone noticed that Roger's backhand return is now going in way deeper.

Serve has improved in terms of aces, but still in the low 50's.

Routine as expected. Blake has simply lost his fighting spirit.

Good performance from Rog as usual this tells nothing of his form due to his volatility these days.

Blake bent over way too easily this was the most routine match I've ever seen.

Federer played OK considering the style of play that James was using. It's nearly impossible to get any rhythm when the average rally length is four shots and the guy is going for broke on everything.

Keep going Fed. The winner of the Federer-Murray semi final should definitely win this title.
