MC: Federer defeats Gonzo 6-2, 6-4

Federer was never really challenged in this one other than a BP Gonzo had early in the 2nd set that would've put him up 3-1. Fed has only faced 11 break points in this entire tournament which is amazing for a clay TMS event. He is easily the 2nd best clay player in the world right now.

Tommorrow's final vs. Nadal should be a great one.

Re: MC: Federer defeats Gonzo 6-2, 6-4

Should have gotten one of those two match points at 5-3 (made his break point conversion worse), but he got a real good amount of first serves in. Hopefully these good matches will translate on to the final, but Nadal is a different matter altogether.

Congratulations on reaching the finals, Roger, and nice showing, Fernando!



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.

Federer had more difficulties in Halle last year than he has had here. Nadal is a totally different story though.

Re: MC: Federer defeats Gonzo 6-2, 6-4

Gonzo only won 13 points on the Federer serve in 9 serve games which is being totally dominated if that match is played on clay. He probably won 8 or 9 of those points in 2 games, so in the other 7 games, he only won 4 or 5 points. Too easy so far for Feds.

Clinical display by Roger. He'll win tomorrow in max 4 sets.

Keep the errors down and his serving percantage has too be up.
