Next one's troicki...
Difficult match if he plays this way.
Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.
Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.
First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
As some pointed out in the livescoring thread, Fed's ROS was AWOL for parts of the match, but it was still an entertaining encounter. This should be an interesting match coming up with the Serb. Ultimately though, Federer came through today when it mattered and I feel it will be much the same way against Troicki.
Chiudinelli definitely made a good account of himself out there today, but must be kicking himself for not having been able to force another tiebreaker when he was up 4-1 in the second set.
if he plays even like 50% of this, Troicki mug has a chance tomorrow... especially if he serves like he did today... but on the other hand, Victor is one big choker against Top players, I wouldn't be surprised if he wastes a couple of MP's against Rojer... of course if he reaches that goal...
Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!
