Red face Federer bagels Santoro in the 1st set

I like Federer's game, but can we get an opponent to trouble him? Looks like another hour of Federer gushing by Mary and John.

Their matches have always been close before. Not now.

Re: Federer bagels Santoro in the 1st set

Santoro played like total ass in the first set and Roger is just... Roger. Not that big of a surprise really. Santoro can't expect to hold serve if he doesn't get first serves in, considering his serve isn't really a weapon anyway.

They are showing the Moya-Rochus match. The way the camera is positioned, it looks like Moya is playing a 2-foot midget.

Santoro did not play bad in the first set. He was outplayed. Simple. Roger was hitting winners upon winners, 19 total to only 3 or so from Santoro. So, it doesn't compare to any ugly tennis where one player makes about 15 or 20 errors and the opponent has no winners and then he/she wins 6-0. The only thing Santoro did not do was serve well. Simple.

Re: Federer bagels Santoro in the 1st set

I can't focus on any match if they keep switching between courts so frequently.

TIM HENMAN.

Pete Sampras - no yelling, no bad language, no fooling around, no showmanship, no media obsession, no nonsense. He just let his tennis do the talking. Enough said.

Re: Federer bagels Santoro in the 1st set

I dont think timmy can stop him now with is back problems and other shit.... It seems the players that troubled him(Nalbandian, Henman) are all having injury problems. Lucky Federer....

Re: Federer bagels Santoro in the 1st set

well Roger had his scare on that 3rd set tiebreaker. Never underestimate Fabrice.
