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.
Andreev, never an easy customer for Fed... and here it showed again.
Mediocre match. Djokovic might have watched it, gloating in anticipation of what might well come soon...
In other words, Rog will truly have to up his level if he wants any chance of getting this title. I'm not counting on it to happen at all.
Fed raised his level at the tail end of the sets, as per usual. Solid stuff.
Novak Djokovic nº1!

Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
Olderer benefiting from a choke yet again Mugdreev doesn't have the balls to take it to the old man like 99% of the tour. I can see him BSing his way to QF/SF/F of tournaments by 35 at this rate.
it's easy to overthink the situation when you play two brilliant shots in TB (*1-0 and *2-0) at the baseline only for the opponent to half-volley them back to you, it's Fed's high level that force the opponents to overplay.
“The goal, when I took my break of six months, was doing this for the next couple years, not just for one tournament, I understand people who say, ‘Oh, this would be a perfect moment to go.’ But I feel like I’ve put in so much work, and I love it so much, and I still have so much in the tank.”
