Miami R3: Federer def. Serra 7/6(2) 7/6(3)

Did Roger wear his watch on court today? He looked to be in EXHO mode for most of the match, almost annoyingly relaxed. Serra played well.

Miami Rd3: Fed toughs it out against Serra 7-6(2) 7-6(3)

Serra played well..but federer had just enough in his armory. Serra was down 5-4 in the 2nd but broke back with a great down the line forehand.He managed to take the match into a tie-break. Tricky match probably against Berdych next.
Phenomenal point at 5-2 in the 1st set by roger . Still to many errors and shanking..against players like serra u can still win..but the likes of cillic and berdych will punish him. Serra had his chances at 6-5, Federer really needs to up his game.

Re: Miami Rd3: Fed toughs it out against Serra 7-6(2) 7-6(3)

Allow me to paraphrase the one and only Mr John Patrick McEnroe:

"How big a lead does it have to be for you to not screw up, huh? A double break? A triple break? Serving for both sets, is that not a big enough game for you not to screw up, jerk???!!!"

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.

shanktastic performance from Rogie today - needs to keep concentration and stop gifting service games so easily to the likes of Serra

Not a great match from Federer but good enough. Was in control the entire match.

5 or 6 BRILLIANT shots from Federer in this match by the way. If you find the highlights later on, watch it.

Federer of course should not have given away the double break but oh well. He'll probably know that as well.

Did what needed to be done. Good fight from Serra, though.

It seems that Federer doesn't give a sh!t, except when he's playing tiebreaks.

Oh whatever, in before the rain.
