Appreciating the ability and the greatness of Federer is never boring.

Roger did not play Davy in Wimbly 06. He did at the AO and it was not an uneventful three sets.

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.

I don't. I find his lack of charisma boring, and most of his matches boring because they're insanely one sided.

Nice to see you post serious to sir!!!! I think the same federer is nice to watch during exciting match. This not so common, all matches easy win, we expect easy win and no fun. It can be nice if we see him lose many sets and opponent makes challenge and maybe win!!!

Nikolay will win because he will bore Roger to death.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

And I thought people were interested in the tennis.

I meant the final...but it's SF, should have specified that.
But I must say I'm impressed by Davykenko, he is showing that all of his experiences are finally paying off.

'fraid not. Watching players hit balls from a back of a court doesn't make a good game, personalities do. If everyone on the tour played like Federer but had similar personalities, tennis would die a slow and painful death.
