Paris SF: (4) Ferrer def (WC) Llodra 7-5 6-3

Ferrer saved 10/10 BPs in the 1st set, only won 58% of service points despite never being broken. Saved almost all of them with winner passes. Ferrer took his 2nd BP (1st was earlier and saved with quite a bit of luck) 1st set they won exact same number of points

Second set Llodra started really slow, went down a quick 4-0 (With a kinda questionable MTO in between). Llodra got one break back for 2-4, but Ferru held on to the other break through the end of the match, served well when needed. Looked better at the end than the beginning

Ferrer's backhand was horrendous, though rest of his game was fine. That needs to improve tomorrow. Still, 1 win from a long-deserved TMS title and I think he should do it.

Mika is so cute with Theo, but I wonder why he doesn't bring out his daughters.

Ferrer saved and i mean saved atleast 9/10 bp.s in the first set, incredible. But served poor.

Amazing result for David now go for a well deserved title and go after the nr 4 ranking.

Disgusting. 0/10 bp in the first set...

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

Bravo David!
You showed them! What great nerves in spite of Llodra's good play in the first set. And weathering the attempted disruption to your rhythm in the second set.

Take the title, Pics!

Ferru has to win and get this title tomorrow! I loved their hug at the end of the match. And Llodras kid was so adorable!

Words cannot express how frustrating that first set result was.
