Fed in 4.
Great matches? Apart from Jo, none of his opponents even played extremely well

Re: WWW AO SF: [3] Murray vs. [2] Federer

Murray in 3 unfortunately with Federer blowing a gazillion chances in each set.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

agree completely with your post

Roger Federer

Form is temporary, class is permanent

"He is capable of hitting shots which others don't even think about trying" Lendl on RF.

in other matches his % of 1st service was much higher, Roger didn't look good to me since the start of the match, playing well or not Jo.

Re: WWW AO SF: [3] Murray vs. [2] Federer

Murray has to stretch the match to 5 sets and tire out Federer in order to win. He cannot beat him in straight sets on this fucking slow court.

Fed should get some recovery tips from Eggovic then he'll win in 4.

Re: WWW AO SF: [3] Murray vs. [2] Federer

I think Murray wins this one in 4 or 5.

Hopefully I'm proven wrong and Roger wins this SF.

Congratulations Novak Djokovic on a superb 2015 season!
82-6 W/L, 3 slams + 6 MS1000 + WTF,
11 titles won from 15 consecutive finals


Also supporting: Federer, Tsonga, Del Potro, Wawrinka, Nishikori, Raonic, Gasquet, Berdych, Kokkinakis, Fognini, Brown, Dolgopolov, Ferrer

Not a fan of Nadal & Murray

Props to Murray for not being a whiner even if the British media have tried everything to get him to say something controversial.

Tomic played great for the first two sets. Forced Federer to raise his level. Did you watch that match?
