Re: FedEx barely beats Soderling 7-7 7-6

I wonder if Federer still thinks Hawkeye is a bad thing.

I have enjoyed a number of Soderling matches that I have seen, they tend to be pretty good contests- although he is often on the losing end.

I like a lot of players.

Woah, 7-7... I think Fedex didn't deserve that set!

Re: FedEx barely beats Soderling 7-7 7-6

just saw soderling v federer. 7-6, 7-6 federer. great game. wouldve liked to see robin challenge fed more on his serve but towards the end he was starting to. soderlings service games were very entertaining as they had the most rallies. soderling hits with very little margin for error, clipping the net cord numerous times but luck was on his side today as itd trickle over to feds side. fed seemed agitated at a few of those and some of his ues but he was very mentally tough today weathering soderlings huge fhs.

Re: FedEx barely beats Soderling 7-7 7-6

Fed is starting to love the Challenge System, I am sure.

He made two challenges in a row (at 8:8 and 9:8) and was right both times (Söderlings forehand too long twice). The crowd booed when Fed made the first challenge at 8:8 and it turned out that he was right. Great way to shut off their mouthes!

His reasons for saying that weren't due to his doubts about the technology but the cost of implementation.

Anyway, tough match for Fed and Soderling came to play. Seems like Fed almost got over-powered but the W against his name is what matters so let us see how he plays against Ginepri.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Thanks for the explanation. I will see it tomorrow for delayed tape.

Wow, that's a dramatic match, not so good way to finish the game. 2 challenges for 2 last points in TB.......what a real

To be fair- they then applauded when he was right.
