Great to see Olderer having these long matches right before Wimby. Hope he's nice and tired next week

A real fan wants the two players giving their best.
Also, the match wasn't that long, 2 hours, and not long rallies in grass.

Come on, Doc, you can do it way better than that.

What happened? Ivanovic is in "those days" ?

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

I'm just kidding

Olderer is probably gonna lose in QF again to someone like Berdych or Tsonga. He hasn't been a real threat at Wimby since 2009 (where he got a challenger draw).

I don't think that Raonic would even make 10% of Pete or Roger's achievement. But considering the level of the youngsters coming I see on Raonic the best player to take the throne on grass courts.

And next time ask if you have any doubt about what someone write on their posts instead of judging them

Re: Halle QF: Federer def. Raonic 6-7 6-4 7-6

always very closed to victory, but never won it

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

beating Federer would be too boring, he's waiting until he faces the world number 1

Re: Halle QF: Federer def. Raonic 6-7 6-4 7-6

Raonic shows again that in a matchup against Roger, when the going gets tough, he succumbs to his master!

Another Game for Milos

ROGER

Well done Rogi. As for Milos, 1 set is not enough indeed . I hope he can take at least 3 against one of the other top 3 at SW19.

Re: Halle QF: Federer def. Raonic 6-7 6-4 7-6

Milos was not at his best in this matchup and certainly not to the quality that we saw when he played Federer in Madrid. He served well throughout (except for the start of the 2nd), but that was about it. It's kind of amazing that he managed to trouble Federer so much in this match (and even win a set) while struggling on return and from the baseline so much.

I have no doubt that he'll get there, but he's still learning and still has to play the big points better against the top players (well...the top players outside of that headcase Murray who he beat easily).

Raonic played God awful and still made it close.
