Re: AO R4 : Federer beats Raonic 6-4 7-6(4) 6-2

That was the worst Milos has played in the four matches with Federer, so I'm sure he won't be happy about that at all. He couldn't do a single thing off the ground and was making error after error off the backhand side. The previous three were mostly up in the air until the very end (and Milos basically outplayed and should have won at Madrid), but that couldn't have been further from the case tonight. Fed had it all along.

Overall, it was a decent tournament for Milos in that he played to his seed despite never being in good form along the way. Hopefully getting to play some indoor tennis next month will get him back on track.

As for Roger, he hasn't really been challenged yet in this tournament, so it's hard to say what his chances are of beating Murray/Djokovic. Perhaps Tsonga will be able to give that challenge in two nights.

Of course because Federer actually wanting his countryman and friend to win is UNTHINKABLE.

Would you like to wear Fed's pink shoes ?



Not me.

That is why I think he is a much more versatile player than I was and he is also much more athletic.”

An easy walk for Federer who was so cool he even needed two shirts... he didn't sweat at all, the beads on his forehead in the interview were just condensation.

Good Work Rog.

Fed doesnt like Stan. They had arguments in the past.

Fed loves himself only.

He is like Golum.

Milos was piss poor. He won one more game than Tomic but Tomic gave Roger much more of a fight.

Roger was rock solid. Pretty surprised by how good he looks; I expected more rust from him than he's shown so far. Hope he keeps this up and finds a way to win the title.

Roger Federer

You wish.. Nadal will always be tougher for Fed than Eggovic. Roger has beaten Djokovic in all 4 slams.

Yeah, disappointing. Two of the three were minor classics, really interesting matches.

Today was painfully bad. Once he donated away first set, the belief just faded. That was masked by the serve, but he could barely find an aggressive groundstroke to save himself.

Federer was too good on serve. He gave Raonic no chance to get any rhythm. The scoreline was eerily similar to the previous match.. It must feel good to put these youngsters in their place haha. I am a bit disappointed with Raonic's performance to be honest, but I am not complaining haha.

Federer blasts his way to a 35th consecutive QF, and has not been broken yet.

I am talking about active players . Nadal doesnt play at this moment.

Federer worst menaces here are Djokovic and Murray.

So no surprise he prefers Wawrinka and Ferrer in finals than Djokovic.

They are both his turkeys.
