Spotty play from Roger at times (based on superhuman a.k.a Federer standards), played the "big" points well; overall, a nice and steady victory which hopefully he can use as a positive going into the remaining few matches. Got the job done and that's all that really matters.

Fed just c0uldn't move well at all in the first two sets and if Nalbandian hadn't made key errors in the first set, ehcould've won that as well.

3-1 Nalby up in the third, serving, Fed can't hit a return in play, can't hit a BH or FH, can't really move and he toughs out the game winning a long point. Then it was JesusFed time.

David was playing well but Roger cleaned up his game and won it. GREAT JOB!!!!!!!! His movement was normal ninja like.

Just like he play sloppy and ugly tennis in Cincy this year. He deserved it because he play the big points well. He was down a break in the first and gutted it out.

Great job, Roger. Best of luck in your remaining matches.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

For one thing, he was putting returns in play. Two, he was hitting the BH cleanly as he got more confidence in that ankle.

congrats Rogi.

now i'm off to bed.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

I wouldn't count Nalby out yet as he will have a decent shot against Ivan if Ivan isn't serving like a madman. If he is then it will be Ivan and Federer coming through this group.

Did he really play the big points well, or did David play them bad? Do you think this was all federer stepping up or was it partly due to David just letting down after he was broken back? because really, david's shots dropped in quality late in the 3rd set, and he started making the unforced errors.
