Brutal, brutal match. Semjan saved several BPs in a long deuce game at 4 all in the third set. Nando hit a forehand that set up an easy winning shot down MP in the final game but the forehand was called out incorrectly. Nando had to replay the point and double faulted to lose.
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.
