Come on, CD, how can Fed have this in conditions where his ball has no penetration. I mean I am not sure what has to happen for him to beat Djokovic on this slow clay. I just don't see it with the form he's had so far.
Now, I know you're a clown but can you at least try? Obviously, Roger was winning when I posted that.
Well you have to construct your point. That is what clay court tennis is all about. But if somebody wants to play low margin shots they can always paint the lines. Those would penetrate for sure. Federer is a great clay court player (yes he is!) who is good at constructing his points. He will find ways to set up winners which would penetrate.
Fed will have to cut down on his unforced errors off both wings. Novak's balls will be less penetrating than Delpo's and from what I saw today Fed was holding his own in hard rallies with Delpo. Fed is due a good serving outing and if that is clicking it will become easier for him. Novak is not in top grade form. If Tsonga and Seppi could take novak to 5 sets, Federer has chances.
Yes Novak is the favorite for sure but I can picture out what it would take for fed to win. He has the game and nobody has more tools than him. Just depends on execution, mental strength and stamina.
