Kooyong Final: Federer d. Wawrinka 6-1 6-3

Fed is rounding into form. Forehand and movement seem to be getting better and better (definitely better than in Doha).

The post match presentation was longer than the match itself

Awful from Wawrinka today

God I did not miss those one-sided Federer finals. Glad they aren't coming as frequently these days.

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

Roger played very solidly, there were some UEs and such but overall everything worked out perfectly

Stan is not in the best of forms, but is better than last year's end which was

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Good that he won, but Stan is not a proper measuring stick. Very suprised that he beat Gonzo, but I still expect an early exit at AO.

Stan was just happy to be out there on the same court as Federer.

It seemed like an incredibly long one-on-interview with Federer. I turned it off before it finished.

Federer played well today, some very nice shotmaking on his end. It was a good match to watch, better than most of the half-hearted efforts/low intensity matches I've seen this week in Kooyong. Wawrinka was very inconsistent.

Wawrinka didn't seem to be bothered moving his feet during the match. During the pre-match interview he pointed out that 'it's only an exhibition', which I guess showcases his mindset going in.

Federer hit some very pretty winners though so it was a good match to watch anyway.

Horrible final. Exactly as the scoreline suggested. For me it was a waste of money (except for Verdasco VS Gonzo, that was good). I can honestly say I had more fun at the 2 hours of qualies I went to after Kooyong finished
