Cool Federer Wins Dubai Over Youzhny 6-4 6-3

Misha Fantastic tournament though, and a nice fight in the end, saving [EDIT] 6 match points.
Congratulations Federer. Too good. Very patchy in the earlier rounds, but really stepped it up when he needed to.

Re: Federer Wins Dubai Over Youzhny 6-4 6-3

I watched from Misha serving at 1-4, 15-40 in the 2nd set and he fought so well! Played some great shots to at least hold serve two more times and save a few match points along the way. I love the way he loosens up and smiles/plays with the crowd when he's losing in matches like this (and vs. Fed at AO and Roddick at USO). And it allows him to swing away and hit some beautiful winners.

Re: Federer Wins Dubai Over Youzhny 6-4 6-3

6 match points I think it was.
Props to Youzhny - managed to break Federer twice in the first set, and give it his best shot (which admittedly, is all he could do, considering his h2h with Federer, and that he must've came into this match absolutely knackered)
The winning streak for Federer continues.

Why Rogi is so egoistic? He has been winning for a couple months all tournaments where he starting.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

Precisely... and Youzhny did seem like he doesn't believe he could actually WIN this; but it's understandable. Whenever he'd do something great, next point Fed would do something even better; so you always have this feeling 'even if I do my absolute best, it still might not be enough...' and that sort of thinking doesn't help your game.

But, props to him for saving a great amount of BPs, no less than 6 MPs, one even on Fed's own serve.

As for Fed... no comment, hehe

Can't wait to see this match on Eurosport later. Sounds like a pretty good match.

Congrats to Federer for the win.

And congrats to Misha to a great two straight weeks of tennis.

I hope he gained some fans today by his incredible fight even in a losing effort. His fight in the next to the last game was awesome.

I like a lot of players.
