Terrific volley Fed, you need to keep that attacking play intact!

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

Wow 2 aces in a row. Federer holds (for now) and leads 4-1.

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

2 times a volley winner, see you need to attack him no matter what.
Just as Mats Wilander said try a chip-and-charge Nadal for a match.

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

Brilliant attacking play from Roger there

We've got to remember though, it's sorta easier to volley here than in Paris. But it's a very good tactic, nothing Rafa could do.

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

There's no signs that show nadal is tired, but hes making a few UE's then he usually does, but hes been doing that all tournament and has made it to the final.

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

Nadal shanks out a forehand and Federer is tasting some blood he is really playing well today.
Maybe my prediction of Fed wins RG and Rafa wins Wimby comes true lol.
