As usual Roger played the basic to win as quick as possible.
Interviewer: Who is your favorite professional women's tennis player?
Rafa: My favorite .. right now is Federer, no? Because he is a perfect tennis player.
Interviewer: Is... Roger Federer?
Interviewer: Uh huh, what about in the women's side?
Rafa: Well I'm not, um, watching a lot of women... women tennis.
Good stuff from Rog, he did what he had to do Now make it 20 in a row tmrw against Seppi
Zemlja was better than I expected, and tried a lot more than that Germelmuger. He played better than the scoreline indicates but overall was never going to trouble Federer without any major weapons bar a good serve
"In my opinion he's the best player ever. When you play tennis, playing Federer is kind of a dream because you can see he does everything you would love to do on the court" - Fabrice Santoro
Very solid, toying around with Zemlja at times.
As expected Zemlja didn't have anything to hurt Federer with, except for a good 1st serve (which is why Fed's ROS looked a bit wobbly at times). But just like Gremelmayer earlier today, you just have to congratulate the guy with a great tournament.
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!
