Tomic was the aggressor
0/1 vs 3/15 speaks volumes as to whom was the 'aggressor'. I don't know why Nadal fans would even understand what 'taking the initiative' means.

Re: Federer and Break Points

This match brought back painful memories of French Open 07 final defeat. At least that was against peak Nadal on clay. This was against a poor Djokovic who was struggling to find his 1st serve and was there was the taking. I'm so disappointed in Roger for the very first time ever.

Re: Federer and Break Points

Lack of confidence. He spreads errors all over the court on break points.

Federer's past 5 years defined by his inability to win BPs

His conversion rate has always been bad, but especially in the past 5 years with one major to show for it.

Tonight was an epitome of that. 4/23 BPs won.

Re: Federer and Break Points

That missed sitter on SP at the end of the 2nd. Forehand in the open court and he sends it a mile out....that sums up this whole match. I didn't watch RG 2007 but this is what it must have felt.
