Federer 'destroys' Bjorkman: 6-2, 6-3, 6-2

Good job, Rogelio!

Still - as I always have my critical remarks for any of my favourites (and Rogi is no exception to that rule ) - he came across as unconcentrated at times, being rather 'vocal' as well. Absolutely brilliant moments exchanged by sloppy UE's (backhand shots against - or rather, behind - the line), slight signs of irritation here and there...
That said, he played a lot better in the third set as compared to the first two.

IMHO, he's rightfully not completely happy with his game yet. Of course Bjorkman isn't a serious contender he'd have to fear in any way, but Rogi will have to do better to eventually win the AO, I think (especially after I witnessed Rafa's perfomance yesterday, which was pretty good IMHO! ).

Well, next is Teh Joke - pardon me, Djokovic - and I guess that will be Rogi's first real challenge for this AO. Let's just see what happens!

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

TMG.

He will probably play Misha in the next round not Novak. Misha is currently up a set.

Need ideas for a new signature...

"Idiot" count in this match: 2

Strange that he's being so vocally self-critical at the moment - it's a bit like his bad old days when he was not under control. Worth keeping an eye on.

Don't know... Eurosport did, and I had a well-working livestream from betfair as well.

Oh, Rofe... if he'll have to play Misha, I guess it'll be even better. If so, I stand corrected!

Roger looked imperious at times. The backhand was amazing throughout. Jonas played magnificently in patches. Very enjoyable match.

You're revealing your secret Fedtard tendencies. Admit it. You're on the Federer Express too - even if you're hiding from the other passengers in the toilet

I did not see this match, but I noticed throughout 2006 that he is quite a bit fiestier on court than he was during 2004 and parts of 2005. He has been quite a bit more vocal lately-- to where imo the claims of him being robotic are increasingly . At least in my opinion.

I like a lot of players.

Most definitely, I must say it worries me for a bit...

His performance was ok, did enough to win, but roger did hit more backhand winners than his forehand surprisingly
