Federer is undefeated on hardcourts indoors since Paris 2010, it's 25th win in a row.

On slow hardcourts like IW and Miami next month he's got very little chance...

I really thought Del Po would be a contender this year but he seems unable to take the next step. More chance for Isner & Raonic to pull off some upsets with their serves than Del Po. Horrendously played break points & no change in tactics throughout the match. Expected a lot better from Juan.

All that said - congrats to Fed - he's clearly trying to make an assault on the ranking playing all these tournaments and credit to him for winning even when not playing near his best. Dubai will be the real test though - lets see how he does vs Murray and/or Djoko...
umm... hello? Federer had no serve! Imagine if he'd served 65% first serves instead of 49%

Roger Federer * Greatest Of All Time

facts are simple. Monfils is currently second best indoor player on the tour

Re: Rotterdam Final: Federer beats Del Potro 6-1 6-4

to Fed. Nice to see he still has the fortitude and confidence. Winning against Davy did him good!
And to JM for making the final. Today was just not his day.
Congrats Fedfans!

if Federer would have served great then he would have played like Olderer on baseline.

That always happens with him.

which is why he says Fed has no chance at the big events and I agree

I predicted Fed to win against JMDP at the AO, but now? Nope, don't think so, Davydenko should've taken him out already. And if I'm wrong, I'll cry deep into the night and have a good Federer avatar until Nadal wins another tournament.
Looking forward to the result of this post.

Each time Fed beats DelPo it will remind him of what a douchebag he was for losing that mug USO final.

Very sad for Juan's loss, but I agree with Sue, it wasn't his day today. Hope to see better form from Juan as the season continues. Also agree with ash86, this title is pretty meaningless when you think about the GS's. Nadal and Djoker will continue to clean Fed's clock before trying to kill each other for 6 hours in the finals, especially when you consider how much slower the GS surfaces are compared to this indoor hardcourt.

Dont forget that French open 2009 semis match where he was lucky to escape.

He was also lucky today in 2nd set
