Re: Sunday (5/18/08) OOP & Scores

Is it just me, or is Rafa really whacking his BH today? Far more aggressive than he usually hits it (making a few errors though)

Wow what an outstanding forehand winner down the line from Fed.

Yarp! Was great.

Just what he needs to do... he needs to take an early stranglehold in these rallies, and hitting those second serves is a good way of doing it!

Yeah, it looks like Nadal has no power in his legs just like against Ferrero in Rome. But who knows, he started slow against Djokovic yesterday as well.

C'mon are the excuses coming already? Rafa has been 3-0 down many times..but give Federer some credit too he's playing amazing right now I wonder if he can keep it up.

Bit early to say that.

Fed played well to get 3-0, even if Rafa is at his best, there's nothing he can do there. But we'll see if Rafa is tired when Roger's level drops off a bit.
