Re: Federer destroys Canas 6-3,6-1



Amazing, Roger!

Total awe and admiration!

A great match from beginning to end...



Canas fought and fought.... and you put him down!

There are not enough words to describe this wonderful feeling....

Thank you, thank you!

Canas, what a fighter!



It was similar to the Santoro match USO 04....

Fabrice would win points in each game,

but the games would go Rogi's way.

That's what makes him so great.


BTW 600th post!!!!!

Re: Federer destroys Canas 6-3,6-1

He didn't destroy Willy. The match was much closer as the result is showing.

some facts:

Total Point won

Federer 62
Willy 46


Willy has also won 38% receiving points. Only a hand full of players can do that.

His serve is just not good enough to allow a close match with Federer.

All in all he did the best he can do, reaching the Semifinals. That's good enough for a real top10 player like Willy.

Re: Federer destroys Canas 6-3,6-1

In the first set Roger was clearly a little anxious but played his way into it getting a break but immediately surrendering it. At that point you had to think "uh oh, Canas is doing what he does best". But then Roger broke again to take the set 6-3 and from that point on he was unstoppable.

He did to Canas what Canas often does to others- he wore Canas down mentally towards the end. He stayed in the rallies and despite the relatively high UE count in the first set from Roger in the end Canas felt compelled to go for more to put Roger out of the rallies and resulted in him making many errors himself. There were also many points with sublime angled winners, deep winners from every corner of the court. Roger also did what Canas often does and that is make sublime backhand passing shots. Canas just did not have anything with which to hurt Roger in this match.

Interesting comment, since you were the one who wrote "Canas rips Henman a new one" after a 7-6 7-5 win the other night....

Re: Federer destroys Canas 6-3,6-1

Damn, is Federer good!!
I wouldn't have minded seeing Canas in this final at all... would have been a relatively new face in this sort of tournaments... but okay, if Roger is THAT good

Special congrats to Canas, he did well the whole week!

when i say "rips a new one" it is meant to be ironic it has not the same meaning as destroys because it's in good mood

Re: Federer destroys Canas 6-3,6-1

I was expecting a tight match but Roger came and set things right..............

“I am definitely the best frontrunner in the game. Once I am up, I hardly ever slip. But it has shown that coming back from behind is also a forte of mine. That’s a lot more difficult and it is not going to be every match.” Roger Federer

Re: Federer destroys Canas 6-3,6-1

Heh the scoreline was a fair reflection on the match.

Canas could do nothing about Federer today. Despite showing great heart, especially in that first set, he was completely outclassed by the best player in the world. And there's no disgrace in that.
