Mandy 'the wall' almost unpenetrable
Federer ROSless and out-of-gassed
Nole is the only winner here

-Fitness is a problem right now. Really started to run out of gas in the 4th set, and totally out by the 5 set. He needs to improve his fitness if he wants to win these big matches
- His forehand footwork was terrible. Especially when it's a running forehand, he gets wrong, wrong wrong. He also isn't getting enough power on the forehand down the line.
Some big problems for Federer, he needs to resolve these soon.
federer showing his age. it's matches like this that makes me believe roger is all natural. it's almost impossible for someone to play a 5 set epic match and then come back the next match jumping like a rabbit
You clearly don't watch - or don't know - much about tennis. Not only is it not impossible, but winning a match after a 5 set epic has been done many, many times. Are you saying that all those past champions were cheating somehow? Just because Federer at his age cannot last a match after a 5 set epic, doesn't mean fitter players cannot either.
