This is how like for Roger to play. His service games were NID (only faced 1 BP) and did what was needed in verdasco's serve to win the sets comfortably.
No need to summon Jesus Fed to play against mugs like verdasco.
Roger better save his best for the giant that is murray, and after watching murray's match today Roger has almost 0 chance of winning in the semis. But I'm sure Roger will try his best.
And it isn't that bad that murray is winning the US Open, he deserves a slam.
