Federer is a type of a player Sascha loves to play against. The German will be outhitting Federer off both wings and dictate all the rallies. Federer's only hope is servebotting and under 3 shot rallies with net approaches.
Cilic was really composed in the first set, but Tomas was awful, particularly when returning. Tomas raised his level a bit in the second and Cilic started mugging when he tried to serve it out. In the end it was an easy TB for Cilic.
If you take away the matches Nadal played vs Federer this year, I think Nadal has had a better year than Federer.
Nadal's level from match-to-match has been more impressive, and I think he'll finish #1 this year.
Just didn't play great vs Federer.
He's got the kind of face that suggests he enjoys trolling his fans. Look at that grin as he's about to serve: he knows he's about to choke away a winnable match, he accepts it, and he relishes the disappointment he creates. And there's no one better in the role.

It's all PR... Someone started talking about Coric and now you guys believe he's so wonderful kid, his highest ranking - 84, Dzumhur highest ranking - 87. The same actually. Difference? Coric made it via wildcards - to Basel for example, Dzumhur had to reach it by hard work, on qualies, challengers.
