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.
