Gaudio was actually brilliant in saving those breakpoints. I give credit to Federer to being able to finish the match when he did. Gaudio showed some glimpse of ability to win today, and he could very well beat Hewitt and Moya with this kind of form, but then again, he'll probably choke. Who knows; good win Roger. This is the kind of match he needed to polish his game for later.

Great match by both. Federer showed off a great performance, although he did waste a lot of opportunities to break Gaudio's serve. But let's not discredit Gaudio because his showing of good mentality and game in delicated moments was the reason of the tie-break in the second set.

I'm glad Federer won, now he gets more confidence for his next matches. Keep it up, Rogi!

Re: Red Group, Match 1 : Roger Federer d. Gaston Gaudio 6-1, 7-6(4)

Well, as was to be expected it was a tough tussle in the end- from the matches I have seen between them it always took Gaudio a set to settle down and then when he does that is when he really starts to trouble Rogi.

As was mentioned on a vast majority of the BPs Federer didn't give them away, rather Gaudio won them.

The thing that baffles me the most about Gaudio is that he looks so mediocre and incompetent for a few points in succession, and then when his back is to the wall he suddenly transforms himself and starts playing unbelievable tennis. If only he could play the way he did when he saved the BPs during the entire match he would be top 5 material. But then again, there is no point in getting into 'what ifs'.

I am glad that Roger got through and by doing so has hopefully shaken off the rust from not playing for so long. I am optimistic he will improve in his next matches- and of course to walk away with the win under his belt takes off a lot of the pressure and gives him more margin for error for the rest of his group stage matches. Well done

Except the 2nd set tiebreak which was only decided by one single mini-break, there was no chance for Gaudio in the whole match even though score-wise he was able to make it look close in the 2nd set. Gaudio didn't have a break point in the whole match but did a brilliant job on fighting to hold own serve saving all those break points of Federer in the 2nd set. At the end it was a bit too tough for Gaudio to overcome the fact that he could get almost no points on Roger's serve whereas Roger breezed through in his service games most of the time. With circumstances like that it's hard to win a tiebreak. But if Gaudio can play like in the 2nd set again, his chances are increasing against Moya and/or Hewitt.

Yes, but if Gaudio would have somehow won the tie-break, even if you are Roger Federer and you are holding serve easily, the knowledge that you had so many missed chances can catch up with you and then Gaudio might have grown in confidence and made the breakthrough on Federer's serve in set #3. Therefore, it was imperative that Federer finished him off in that tie-break.
