Federer really wasn't bad today. Those who say he was are not giving enough credit to Nieminen, who was generally very solid on his service games. From what I saw of the Fed match, Nieminen was playing MUCH better than Gasquet was.
it was a very different match but I agree with you that Fed looked quite good imo. Will be a totally different match-up anyway, esp with this defensive version of Gasquet he had chosen to play, hoping he would face a badly confident Kolya.
