Why is "WWW" in the title

Anyways, Roger played well overall. Congrats champ.

No surprises in the result really. Federer wasn't feeling like donating to a charity cause and this was never going to be closer than his semi with the real number 4 was. Some good tennis, some frustrating.

Great couple of weeks for the old man though.

Puzzling how often Murray set up Federer's forehand. As though asking Roger to beat him with his best shot and fire away. Someone was listening to some Pat Benatar before coming onto court.

.....

<---"Espera. ¿Dónde están?"

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Very tactical match, Roger played a lot more down the middle of the court insted of going for his usual winners, lots of slice BHs towards Murray's FH. He outmurrayed Murray.

Roger Federer | Benoît Paire| Stanislas Wawrinka | Nick Kyrgios

Murray is declining.

He briefly had a forehand in the AO 2012, even that was not enough to beat a tired, subpar Novak, and then he lost that forehand permanently.

He used to beat Fed at MM tournaments and now can't even do that.

Clearly declining.

Oh well. Good run for Murray before IW and Miami - at least no first round blow out this time round.
