Wow, that was great
Both have incredible volleys, Rochus also has a good pass, this match had like no unforced errors. Best Rochus has played in years, Paire is so talented.
2 3rd set breakers in a row, the road must end here though
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.
Rochus would have 5-10 slams by now if someone had the smarts to place him on a rack as a kid.
So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...
Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
