Federer wins but tested by Massu in 4 sets

the match expected to be the first test for federer
massu survived a 5 set match 9-7 against xman
then won in three against Miryni

Federer was not comfortable in 1st match
eased thru another quaifier falia

can massu test federer today
interesting match

Re: Federer taking on Nico Massu

Massu is hoping to just take a set off Fed. Anything else shouldn't be expected.

Re: Federer taking on Nico Massu

Massu's best chance is the 2nd set. Roger won the 1st easily and when he does that, he usually loses focus in the 2nd.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Federer taking on Nico Massu

Federer is playing great. I'm hoping there is a bagel somewhere here so that they can show Tursonov's match.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

Re: Federer taking on Nico Massu

So far, no contest, but things can change quickly.
Fed is playing some clean tennis though.

FEDERER 17 & Counting (fingers crossed)

Re: Federer taking on Nico Massu

British Eurosport are showing this instead of Nalbandian vs Dimi. Obviously they think it is more exciting.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Re: Federer taking on Nico Massu

You mean Fed is now able to hypnotize his opponents? Anyway you are right, Massu needs to wake up. At least if one loses to Federer better to put up a fight. Massu won't be happy with his play. And as I said he was looking ok for the first 4 games.

Re: Federer taking on Nico Massu

massu is playing bad
sleeping
staying too far back & letting federer move him around
he is turning to much to his forehand & leaving soo much space to cover
to many unforeced error to bother federer who is looking confident
& playing well
2 sets in an hour or so is too easy
massu not fighting enough
or showing aggression

Unfortunately this is how he typically plays. It seems to be his comfort zone and he isn't able to get out of it. Fed is all pressure too which has something to do with the inability to change your game. I just wanted a good match.
