As expected a Rusty Fed in his first post-AO match... apparently still with his brain on the Dubai beach in that second set!
Fourth game, third set: Fed decides 'Partytime is over'
, and does his job as he should do. I expect Feds rustiness to be over for the next match.
Kudos to Pless, BTW!
Not too many players can say they've won a set from Feds lately
Roger had kind words for his opponent in the post-match interview: 'good serve, a tough opponent'. Unfortunately I didn't get much of the rest of the interview, due to endless buffering of the livestream...
At least I got to see this match.
