We should be appreciative of Federer though, because we will never see anything like him again. The fact he can still compete for slams ever after the erosion of his physical skills is really a greater testament to the natural talent he has than the period of time when he was dominating the tour.
Re: Valencia R1: Andy Murray d Feli Lopez 6-3 7-6(1)
I believe Feli is recovering from 'flu as well. His "flop shot" when all he had to do was tap it over the net and he tapped it into the net instead was hilarious!
Andy seemed to be playing well within himself, lost concentration to drop his serve in the second set (and Lopez started playing better as well), but then went on to break back and take the tiebreak convincingly. I'm no tennis expert but it seemed to me that Andy won the first set playing pretty passively, then tried to be more aggressive in the second and consequently made a few more mistakes. Anybody agree?
