IW R2: Federer def. Andreev 7-5 7-6(4)

Always tough against Andreev.

Next one vs Chela should be a lot easier.

Fed raised his level at the tail end of the sets, as per usual. Solid stuff.

Re: IW R2: Federer def. Andreev 7-5 7-6(4)

simply the best tie break player in history

2 set win is good for a tricky opponent on a slow court Fed doesnt like

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.

Fed raised his game nicely at the end there.

Re: IW R2: Federer def. Andreev 7-5 7-6(4)

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.

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.

Andreev choked to the swiss Karlovic.

Seriously, Federer is only serve and luck now. Any decent player with some balls will beat the crap out of him.

Of course, too hard to give any credits to the opponent of 'olderer', eh?
