Re: it's all about the big points...
This is why you don't make topics like this before the match is over, I guess. I mean, don't underestimate Federer (he is one of the best at the big points), but don't underestimate his opponents either.
But, of course, Sjengster, remember that he saved six set points in the second set - potentally he could have been two sets to one down, but instead he's two sets to one up, which is certainly a more comfortable situation.
I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.
