Djokovic did his best to choke, lost 7 SPs in both sets and making numerous unforced errors including double faults. Fed just brought his B- game and won

Truth? NO. BULLSHIT

Federer accelerated when needed to, played most important points perfectly and just wore Novak out. Remember that Djokovic spent 5 hours less on court than Federer and that makes 2 quite long matches. After the 2nd set he was just exhausted and kindly waited for the end. Fed's gameplan was accomplished, plus he entertained the crowd. That's what makes great champions, as WTA Whirlpool commercial says

What did they say post match??

I feel the need to say a few things.

#1 Federer is god.

#2 He's not boring, but the fact he always wins is.

#3 No one can call Novak pathetic. He played damn well, just doesn't have the mental toughness. It was his first GS final, and a hell of a lot closer than the score would suggest. And he's only 20, and one of only 2 players who can bring it to Federer. I'd say he's about as far from pathetic as it's possible to be.

I'm not a Djokovic fan, but I gotta give props to him today. He had his chances throught the match and never wilted away. And the crowd was sure appreciative of that at the end. :yeah:

09-09-2007, 11:30 PM
To the people that say it wasn't a really good match, I agree. The quality could have been so much better. But maybe Roger felt that he didn't need to really do anything special and he could still win due to Novak's inexperience. If it had been Roddick, he would have definately stepped it up for sure.

I think it was 4 unforced errors on the 5 set points he had in the first set. And that golden opportunity on the forehand in the 2nd set on set point. And then even in the 3rd when he had 0-40 and missed 2 returns on 2nd serves and then left a ball which he was right next to.

A match of missed chances.

Seems we need to revisit that choking thread again. Sure Djokovic had his chances, but it's not like they were all missed by stupid errors from him. And if Fed is talking about an upset stomach and sweaty palms imagine what Djokovic was feeling tonight.....his 1st slam final against a guy who's there for the 14th time.

I agree that that first set was simply :silly: from Djokovic and he should've had it.

Second set however, Djokovic went for a huge FH, he wasn't in a winning position in the point and just unleashed, those can't always go in. Also, Federer actually got the ball back so point was far from over.

Although Djokovic didn't play big when he had to I still respect him for taking it on the chin and continuing with his game and furthermore I'd rather see someone waste chances like he did, by trying to hit winners, than by playing really negative tennis.

Safe to say Novak doesnt play the big points well

I wouldn't count on that, if I was a general ATP tennis player.

Nole gets nervous when he's doing something big for the first time. Look at IW final, first 20 minutes he couldn't find a first serve to save his life. But then 2 weeks later he dispatched Canas with great authority and some amazing nerves.

So, I wouldn't want to be on the opposite side the next time Nole makes a GS final.

Djokovic didn't deserve to win this match and he lost. Congratulations to Roger for staying calm and winning his 12th GS title.

Pathetic performance by Novak on the most important points again and again and again. Biggest choke I have witnessed in a final out of the WTA. You could even see him changing colors and breathing heavily on some of those break points he lost and he couldn't even keep the ball in on the set points he had on serve.

Good thing is that he outplayed Federer in some points of the match in the 1st and 2nd set until he choked on the important points. Can he fix this problem in the future? We'll find out.

He played really well overall today except on the big points, where I think it's safe to say he choked... But one thing at a time, he also lost his first Masters final and look what happened next... GO Nole:D!!!

As for the first set, I just couldn't believe how it looked like Montreal!!! Even at 6-5, 40-0, I thought about that match and I wondered if Roger could do the same thing... and it happened pretty much the same way, almost only with errors! Sweet revenge for Roger I have to say:yeah:

I'm sooo relieved he won the match without even trying !
As a Fedtard this is the first time I can't find a good reason for Fed's victory apart from the obvious choking. That last dropshot on matchpoint was :tape:
Fed's best match was against Lopez. Who would've guessed ?

Lopez was the prettiest guy of the lot, so he wanted to spank him good :devil:

I think he did choke at those set points. But this is GS final #1, facing the greatest player ever, so give him a break. I'm glad that he played well enough to make Roger nervous (well, at least a bit). I'm sure he will learn from this one and play better the next one.

Congrats to Fed. Please win to #15 quickly so I don't have to cheer for you anymore. But I love to see him get to be the most GS winners in the history.

Winning when playing such a bad bad match with all kinds of errors, shaky forehands, predictable backhands, no risks....

Federer looked like the novice playing his first slam final. I guess no amount of "practice" gets you used to the stage.

I thought Federer saved his best tennis for the clutch moments and the end of the sets - in all three sets I thought he started out uncertainly and passively. It's clear to me that he struggles to find the balance against a player like Djokovic, between hanging back in a rally and being aggressive and attacking. It's something he struggled with throughout the match until the very end when he sensed it was time to go all out on attack.

Djokovic should have won the first set, unquestionably - he choked on that and it proved very expensive because it was then on his mind during the rest of the match when he had more chances and caused history to repeat. There's an argument that he should have won the second set, though that one is more finely balanced - Federer played pretty well to save those set points and stepped on Djokovic's neck in the tiebreak.

Federer very lucky not to have to go to 4 sets, though I feel by the time the 2 hour mark ticked over, Djokovic was starting to look physically drained also - the first serve % was dropping, the movement was less effective - more lunging around and less dancing - and mentally the missed chances had taken their toll.

I'm critical of Federer's performance at the start of the second and third sets, where he had chances to really step on Djokovic's neck and instead let the Serb up off the canvas to keep trying. Ultimately it didn't matter, and Federer managed the rest of the match very well to stop it being on Djokovic's terms, as most of the first set was.

Certainly Federer has been much more convincing in slam finals, and a large dose of help from Djokovic stopped that developing into a drawn-out slugfest.

That said, there were some entertaining points and some great shotmaking - but not enough, consistently enough, to really bring the match to life for long. Neither returned serve very effectively and too many points were decided by errors.

Federer in straight sets, though not comfortable sets, was the best I was hoping for, though, so overall I'm very pleased - congratulations to Federer for #12, commiserations to Djokovic.

Among the stark facts of a straight sets win, though, are ominous signs to come for Federer. I don't expect Djokovic to demonstrate the same sort of inexperience and naivity again in a slam final - he is a very fast learner and next time will have a much better idea of what to do in those situations. Assuming they meet again in a slam final, all bets are off. Djokovic's steady, consistent baseline game and excellent defense is the sort of play that Federer finds most difficult to overcome, and with a bit more confidence, and energy, the story next time could be very different.

Congratulations to Roger :)

True that this wasn't his A* performance...but to be fair why do more than you need to?

Bottom line...when it came to crunch time he had what he needed to pull through.
In the second set tie break he played 2 superb points on the Nole serve.

Trust Roger to break the US Open Series Winner's jinx ;)

Nice to see Mirka so happy as well.

So 2007 is all but wrapped up...excellent stuff Rog :worship:

Faking only takes you so far.

He got tired in the 3rd set and Fed sensed it and just finished it. We can talk about set points and break points but this is really growing pain for Nole, like that match in Indian Wells , he was visibly affected by the occasion but I think next time he will get it back. AO 2008 , here we come

I dont know if he was that tired. But I totally agree with your point: this was much like that IW finals ... this kid is still learning. People shouldnt start putting pressure on him- a thing I call "The Federer effect". Everybody expects every opponent of Fed to be Fed ... Nole is Nole, Nadal is Nadal. Nole is a 20 yrs old, and had the best year of his career. Bright future ahead of him, no doubt. He will be the 2nd fav at the AO, and, given the fact that Roger sometimes play shaky there, will have a great shot next year.

On a funny note: karma is a bitch, isnt it?! It seems that everything that went on Nole's way at Montreal, went on Roger's way today. And, the karma continues: today the "hawk eye" was on Roger's side! ROFL!!!

Yappa
09-09-2007, 11:57 PM
Nole :silly: played pretty well, just horrible on the big points.

I think it was 4 unforced errors on the 5 set points he had in the first set. And that golden opportunity on the forehand in the 2nd set on set point. And then even in the 3rd when he had 0-40 and missed 2 returns on 2nd serves and then left a ball which he was right next to.

A match of missed chances.

Yes, CBS even had a collage of those missed chances. Federer only saved the last sp by hitting a pretty long return and thus forcing the error.

"The Empire strikes back". Good to see that Federer won. :yeah:
It remains to be seen, if Djokovic can keep it up and reach another GS Final in 2008.

btw. it was funny to see that both CBS and Eurosport missed that one Hawkeye challenge at 2:2, Adv Federer in the 3rd set and had their commercial break instead.

EDIT:

Wait, the first sp was saved thanks to a fh winner from Federer. So it's 3 out of 5 due to UEs, not 4 out of 5.

Novak acquitted himself well in his first major final. I'm so impressed with the strides in improvement he's made ths past year. wow.

As for Roger, the man is freaking clutch. What a karmic reversal from Montreal with the saved set points, and in TWO separate sets too! Could've gone either way in each set. If any match called for a "lucky shots" comment, this is kind of it, though it's not true lol. But Novak will have more class than to actually claim such a thing.

So did we learn anything new this Slam? Were people right to slam Roger for calling his Montreal loss insignificant? Is Djokovic a true serious contender? Is he headed for #2 in the world? Is Bud Collins an official jinx on the Slam contenders?

Seems we need to revisit that choking thread again. Sure Djokovic had his chances, but it's not like they were all missed by stupid errors from him. And if Fed is talking about an upset stomach and sweaty palms imagine what Djokovic was feeling tonight.....his 1st slam final against a guy who's there for the 14th time.

We all know the drill by now. Fed loses: mentally weak, the other player is a mental giant, Roger is a choker. Roger wins (against the same player): weak era, the opponent doesnt play good big points, the opponent is a choker.

IMO: this routine is that what is getting really boring. Time to wake up and smell the roses. Not only Roger, but Djoko deserves better than that.

If you want to accuse me of something then do it clearly instead of posting generalities.

I stand firm on my opinion that Djokovic played well but didn't have the mental strength to battle the important points and threaten Federer as he should. He choked more than the normal level.

Federer served well, played the important points well and didn't give up when he was facing all those break points and set points.

To lose one set is normally in Roger´s budget for every match. Usually it is the first one, as we saw across this open. If he loses, he upgrades his attention and his precision as required. If he wins the first, he reloads the same budget again, with no upgrading, of course. We saw this today. Undoubtly the quality of the match was not the best, but had Djoko won one set, we would have seen a very different Roger . . . . .:) :) :)

I noticed the abbreviated ball bouncing - I thought at the time it caused at least one double fault when he took the second serve after only a few bounces. Normally he uses the bounces to calm himself into the service motion but today he rushed some of them.

Reminded me of the Graf-Seles Wimbledon final in 92 - she was being heavily criticised beforehand for her grunting and in the final was as quiet as a mouse - but she then played inhibitedly as well and was demolished by Graf.

People mention Djokovic choking hence lucky for Fed. What about Fed choking on his serve in the second set. He missed some easy shots. It could be said Djoke was lucky Fed was playing poorly. Of course some will only look at Djoke choking letting Fed win. :p
We'd hear all about that if Fed lost. And nothing about Djokovic being 'lucky'.

:) :) :) Roger...my friend, you have shown: you are the true master. You have brought balance to the force of tennis...and Darth Cheater has been vanquished...brought down by the very forces that brought him to the top: his play in tiebreaks.

With his inablity to hold a 40-0 love lead...blowing five set points in total...even double faulting on set point...Darth Cheater was justly humiliated. Losing SEVEN set points in all.:eek: A TRULY SCARRING LOSS...one that will sting for sometime...one that will require him to slink back into the hole from where he and his ilk came...

Roger, my friend...at first, I thought you were playing the most poorly played match in all your grand slam finals. But then, realization hit. You wanted Darth Cheater to feel TRUE PAIN. Unspeakable pain, like pulling the wings off a fly. The pain that comes from CHOKING...the pain that comes from what could have been, but was not. Darth Cheater...we of the Kingdoms of Rafa and Roger know what true champions are. They both won the first grand slam finals. Borrowing the words of Lloyd Bentson, "you sir, are no true (champion)";)

Though I stated I would not bring up Star Wars analogies any longer, Roger has forced me to reconsider. Dressed in the garb of a member of the Sith, he quickly took his place in the pantheon of legend. By bringing balance to the force in tennis, desposing of Darth Cheater, Roger, my friend...you have fulfilled your destiny. No longer will you be viewed as the ultimate enemy of this Rafa fan. You are, from this point forward, my friend.

And, my sentiment is not shared alone. This was a universal victory as evidenced by this link:

I'm not thinking of any excuses, and I'm certainly not trying to insult him.
I simply noticed he changed preparation for his serve, something he's known for, which usually works very well for him.
He served below his average.

Nerves got to him, fair and square.

But Nole did fall apart in all 3 sets which basically gave Fed the advantage and he smelled a weakness and took it home . He was clearly under the occasion and the only other time I've seen it from him is Indian Wells final this year but he followed that meltdown well in Miami

In the end, he was just giving Djokovic a masterclass. At no point did I feel he was in danger. Unlike for example that 5th set at Wimbledon, there I felt it could have gone either way.

Roger- what can I say? #12 baby! :banana: I didn't see the match but you did enough to win and that is what counts at the end of the day.

Looks like piggy fans will have to wait a little while longer for #1 :)


You didn't SEE the match? Now I feel really guilty!!

Oh Ron :eek: :eek:

Roger - this was great. You were the stronger man mentally all night long, played some beautiful shots - the wind did not help you, without the wind there would have been NO break points in the first set. I didn't believe you could climb back from it, I didn't think you would in Wimby either -but you did.

Oh, and hawkeye loved you today, hawkeye love is important!

:worship: :worship: :worship: :worship:

What a big choke by Djokovic :help:

1st set: he had 6-5 (40-0) on serve and wasted 5 set points(!) Then was 3-2 up in TB with minibreak.
2nd set: 4-1 (30-15) on Federer serve and later two set points at 6-5 (40-15)!
3rd set: 2-2 (40-0) on Federer serve.

So Djokovic wasted 7 set points in just two sets!

It's really fun seeing so many Nole haters have their moments in the sun and come out of their hole and making ludicrous definitive statements , I forgot they exist :p . I won't even address some so called "nole fans" who act vindicated with this loss :rolleyes:

We told you it would be a straight set victory but you didn't believe us. :)
"Come back and tell us you knew it all along". I must say I was wrong, I thought Novak would win a set.

But it's ok, because Djokovic has already his name on the AO 2008 trophy :lol:

Expected win by Federer :yeah:

Djokovic was getting some of his own medicine in that first set leading 6-5 and 40-0. Reminds me of Montreal.

everybody I have a question. Is Mirka pregnant or was it just the black dress baggy? Seriously she needs to go on a diet because her size is getting close to obesity! And what a boring match lol both players sucks. I laughed pretty hard at Djokovic for being unable to convert his set points it was funny i gotta say.

Well congratulations to Roger Federer anyway for his 12th consequtive final and 4th consequtive us open title. Simply amazing lol hope u'll go continue to amaze till 35

First of all, great win from Roger. Cant expect him to play sublime tennis every final.I would say Mirka is pregnant. She also wore a smock style long shirt the other day. Would be very surprised if she is not pregnant.
