Re: IW R2 Federer CRUSHES Hanescu 6-3, 6-7, 6-1

Amazing, and hilarious, that Federer was 21/24 at the net but lost 2 of those 3 points in the tiebreak with terrible volley errors. Hanescu was completely on top of him from the middle of that set onwards, punishing his second serve seemingly at will, but then he seemed to fall in love with the backhand dropshot in the final set despite the fact that none of them worked, and he went down rather tamely in the end.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

The ratio of Winners to unforced looks good but in context, I think 25 of those 36 came out of the second set alone.

And congrats to Hanescu for taking his first set ever off Federer.

Well, Feds got the job done eventually, but just as it goes for the other Top Three Guys - he'll have to raise his level of playing to have any chance of getting the title at IW.

Kudos to Hanescu for playing a great 2nd set.

Fedsie dear, get some new contacts please - your challenges are getting embarrsssing.

Re: IW R2 Federer CRUSHES Hanescu 6-3, 6-7, 6-1

Shouldnt have actually been this close. Federer won 111 points to Hanescu's 85. That sort of discrepancy normally leads to a straight set victory, but Federer's level was much higher in the 1st and 3rd set than the 2nd set. In any case, Hanescu served 76% first serves, so I suppose that kept it close.

Re: IW R2 Federer CRUSHES Hanescu 6-3, 6-7, 6-1

Just another day at the office for the G.O.A.T.

There simply aren’t enough words in the English lexicon to describe this man. After he eclipses Pete’s total weeks at #1 on June 14th, the only thing left for him are two more Wimbledon titles, to yet again, transcend and outshine the great Pete Sampras.

All Hail the King.

All Hail Roger Federer.
