Hello, everyone. Sorry I didn't get on here last night, but I knew I was going to need to read this forum in one go, and I didn't have time yesterday. Firstly,
That stupid line judge
Should have been 0-30
Yes, that was a really bad call.
He looks tired slightly, how can it be?? Played so little.
I think that may have been part of the problem. Although it was great for him to get through so unscathed in one way, I did wonder how well he was really playing, and whether he needed to be tested en route
who would've thought after only being broken once all tournament that Rog would have so much trouble on serve.
Yes, indeed. I don't know, but when he was serving from this end of the court he did seem to hit an awful lot of serves which seemed to me to be borderline out and got called out - the sort of thing where there might have been 1 mm overlap or so on Hawkeye.
serve gone again
No first serves in the final game, so you really can't expect to hold.
At that point, the notorious Centre Court shadow was spreading across the court (and very strong because of the sunshine). He would have been serving straight into the sun, I think, and not only that but he probably wouldn't have been able to see Novak and his returns as well as usual in the darkness. That may have contributed, I think.
Deserved victory, was overall better player.
True enough. It seemed to me in the first set that Roger was slower around the court than in previous matches: anyone else think so?
To have fought so gallantly in the 4th set, and then - that's the heartbreaking part. Congrats DL94
I will never forget Wimbledon 2014, even though Roger eventually lost in the final. After not making it to the QF in 3 of the last 4 slams, people were really starting to write Roger off, but yet again he proved them all wrong.
Yes. I think it was Marc Rosset who René Stauffer quoted in the Tagesanzeiger saying that there are a lot of people out there who owe Roger an apology.
I wasn't sure he would ever make a final again after 2013. So he has done well to make the final here and almost win it (was two games away). I was surprised how well he kept toe to toe with Djokovic from the baseline through most of the match.
Personally heartbroken, but so so proud.
Me too, for both these.
