Didn't we have these same threads after AO and RG?

Roger lost a match...and a finals to boot. Let's call in the suicide watch. Good grief....

No, it's not.
It's by far the biggest loss of his career if you only judge on numbers, records and all that meaning behind it, but he knew his conditions going into this match and was clear he wasn't playing near his best (even if he did manage to comeback in the 5th, I give credit to Roger, but also to David's choking abilities), he should just forget, move on, and win The Grand Slam next year.


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc

Did you seriously think his record would stay alive for the rest of his career? Roger knew and was prepared for this to happen one day, so I don't think it will afect his game.

Re: Is this the End of Federer's domination ??

yes...

it doesnt mean federer stop play well,

but more talented young players are ready to face federer, such as gasquet and berdych etc...

and also with the comeback of safin, nalbandian, hewitt,

and of course, nadal improving on other surfaces..

federer is still going to win major next year, but he will face more challenges...

Re: Is this the End of Federer's domination ??

yes but he still played a great match against gaudio in the SF so we can't say he wasn't at a good level

Re: Is this the End of Federer's domination ??

No; Federer has shown enough mental fortitude in the last couple of years that I am sure he will rebound well. To suggest that the loss of a match in which he was injured and in which he was two points away from victory will shatter his confidence and signal an end to his domination simply is asinine...

Yes. It's also the end of the world as we know it.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
