Donít tell me after playing someone 3 times in a row this year, and after coming so close in Rome that youíre gonna come into another final making the same shitty mistakes. Frankly, Nadal did nothing to win this match except return the ball the same way he usually does and wait for Federer to make another error. Those backhand errors you expect most of the time (even tho you expect at some point heíd have learnt better) but those easy forehands that he missed into the net to give Nadal that 3rd set break and those loose forehands in the latter stages of the match and tie-break were just ridiculous.
What annoys me the most about Federer is that he continues to take umbrage with the flack he gets about not being able to beat Nadal but when he gets the chance he plays like a pussy. Well, heís going to have a whole lot more flack to deal with after this one because he did nothing to put himself into a winning position.
Iím really pissed off at Federer, Iím not even sad that he lost, he deserved to lose, because he has yet again demonstrated that he doesnít know what the hell heís doing when it comes to beating Nadal, or if he does know he lacks the balls to do it!
. He failed to play an aggressive game after winning that first set as he has always done against Nadal. Instead of keeping the pressure on and forcing the issue he was content to stand behind the baseline and make error after error. What an idiot performance today. No way he deserved that match. The player who stood his ground won albeit with the same game he always played and Federer apparently having not learned his lesson yet played the same losing game for the portion of the match that counted post.
I hope this stings him for a very long time because he has nothing to show in this match that he can beat Nadal. After Rome I expected a whole lot better performance. He didnít even go down fighting in this match; he just went down.
Obviously he hasnít watched other players play Nadal. Obviously he hasnít yet realized that all that fucking topspin on his returns are fodder for Nadal. Geez, Roger. Could you have brainfarted any worse today?
Mirka has her work cut out for her trying to get you through this one.
How the fuck do you say Nadalís Bitch in Swiss-German.
A bit on the angry side, but I agree. Very disappointing effort by Roger, especially after cruising through the first set. After that, he just looked dejected the rest of the match and his backhand was amateur status, it was that bad.
