Going to need a new bird when the differential becomes 15 - Dodo, perhaps?

What is Federer having for dinner?

Gobble, gooble, gobble, gobble.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I was asking myself the same question, and was not even close to such a quality solution...

George, start preparing the Dodo thread

Never in doubt

But I have a feeling Roger will be the one re-entering the pigeon realm after tomorrow's match againt Nadal

Re: H2H Turkeys: When being a pigeon just isn't enough. 10+ differential required

Dodo is a great suggestion, though I don't mind goose.

We know Brad Gilbert is a goose and 0-16 vs. Lendl is goose like.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

We should save the dodo (pun unintended ) for the rare 20+ differentials.

I must say that back in 2003 this matchup looked like it would evolve to something like Sampras-Courier (16-4). Now it looks like Lendl-Gilbert.

^ Roddick has won only those matches in which he won a tie-break.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Re: H2H Turkeys: When being a pigeon just isn't enough. 10+ differential required

So will Federer go to 12-0 or will it be 11-1? The turkeys have been able to win like Roddick and Gonzalez got one as well, but they are still turkeys.

Roger Federer vs, Nikolai Davydenko

2007 TMC Shanghai, Hard, RR, Federer 6-4 6-3
2007 US Open. Hard S Federer 7-5 6-1 7-5
2007 Roland Garros Clay S Federer 7-5 7-6(5) 7-6(7)
2006 US Open Hard S Federer 6-1 7-5 6-4
2006 Australian Open Hard Q Federer 6-4 3-6 7-6(7) 7-6(5)
2005 ATP Masters Series Hamburg Clay S Federer 6-3 6-4
2005 Rotterdam Hard Q Federer 7-5 7-5
2005 Doha Hard S Federer 6-3 6-4
2004 Athens Olympics Hard R64 Federer 6-3 5-7 6-1
2004 Miami AMS Hard R64 Federer 6-2 3-6 7-5
2002 Milan Carpet R16 Federer 6-3 6-7(4) 7-5

Federer leads 11-0

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
