I almost believed Massu would choke this victory away.
Glad he didn't, though

Lost his 1st service game in the 5th set and that was it, too bad this was not on a TV court.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I wonder if there was any needle and bad glares going on between the players in this match, if I had to take a guess I would say yes.

Massu's tennis is gone, but the fighting spirit is still there for sure.

I think Massu likes playing 5 sets and grueling tennis. I agree Renato the tennis is gone. Lots of winners but to many unforced errors, and the first serve winners were low as well.
Hope anyone watching had fun though

Great fight, I thought this was lost after the poor 3rd and 4th sets!

Roger Federer. Legend.
