6-0 6-3, Federer loves to serve a bagel to his nemesis. Canas has earned the label of a Roger Federer-nemesis. Congrats Canas!

He must have stocked up on the whoop-ass beforehand, because he handed a lot out.

Fed was in God mode... he returned and served brilliantly, and hit some immense FHs and BHs.

Canas just was blown off the court and couldn't get the errors he needed to stay competitive.

Canas was in poor form overall lately, thus not such a big surprise for me that Federer won this one easily. Okay, I didn't think it would be 6-0, but something like 6-2 6-3 wouldn't have been out of this world.

So? :shrug:

It's still far less distasteful than what would have happened if Canas beat him again. Then all the fedhaters would come out, even those who didn't post in the past 2 months.

I personally have nothing against Canas himself and never root for him to lose (unless he plays someone I like more, of course). But a lot of those who delighted in his wins over Roger, didn't care one bit about Willy himself. They were just interested in Federer losing. So tell me which of those is more classless, being happy that your favourite won, or delight in seeing someone lose.

back on topic (ahem, Glenn): we started holding Canas to an unrealistic standard after the two Fed wins. If those hadn't happened, we'd consider him playing pretty solid tennis right now. 4th round of French, Hewitt at Wimbledon, buzzsaw in Mathieu in Natti, bad loss to Lee at U.S. but expected, 7-6 loss to JCF last week, good comeback win over in-form Calleri this week. Not great, but by no means bad. The guy is 29 and has been playing tons of tennis recently. Nov. and Dec. off and Willy will come back strong for the AO in Jan.

I kind of doubt that, to be honest.

Canas came to this match in not-so-great form, he had struggled lately, and I think with being part of the tour while Roger won match after match, Slam after Slam - probably scared him a bit. I doubt he thought he could do it thrice.

Roddick came to his match with Roger (which was to the Semi of a Slam, mind you) fresh from a recent victory over Roger, filled with confidence in his own ability, sure of his improvement. I think the blow was much bigger for him.

It seems like Roddick gets a lot more demoralized about these kinds of losses than does Canas, and he also takes way more shots at the media, whereas Canas is great with them, so yeah, i wouldnt expect the two to be alike at all.

He always was defensive - but fast. :devil:
His playing philosophy was, keep the ball in play at all costs (even if it looks hopeless), and attack only if there appears a hole in the field big enough that it would be a shame not to try to exploit it. Basically, it's quite a sound strategy, logically speaking.

This match was pretty much the same match played in Miami if you look at the 2nd set and the first half of the 3rd set before Federer inexplicably failed to get the 2nd break and then got broken by a tired Canas. Fed in that stretch held with ease and had a look in every single serve game of Canas. This matchup is all about what Federer does; if he hits his shots, there is nothing that Canas can do.Exactly. While watching this match I kept thinking about that second set in Miami.

Congrats Fererer.

I hope Cañas brings back his best game. Right now Cañas is ranked in the Top 15... a good season (he has been top 15 in every injury/suspension free season).

We will see if he can fight for a place in the top ten in 2008.

Roger took him behind the woodshed and gave him a hiding.

He must have stocked up on the whoop-ass beforehand, because he handed a lot out.

Dude, you make him sound like he's Mafia or something.:lol:

To answer your question: no, Cañas wasn't at all playing like shit - more like he plays lately, just one of the many good/reasonable players, but today he just couldn't do ANYTHING at all.
Fed was in True Ninja Mode (for the first time since the AO, I might well say), and I don't think there's any player out there who has a chance against him when he plays like that. Fortunately for those players, Fed doesn't appear to be in Ninja Mode nowadays as often as he used to be.

Let's see. These are the primary players that Roger has had difficulty with at some point in his career:

Tim Henman (was 1-6 against him until he turned it around)
David Nalbandian (was 0-5 against him until he turned it around)
Andre Agassi (was 0-3 against him until he turned it around)
Lleyton Hewitt (was 2-7 against him until he turned it around)
Rafael Nadal (is still only 5-8 against him)
Guillermo Canas (was 1-3 against him until today)

How many of those nemesis'es has he bageled. Only every single one of them - many of thme more than once. Pretty damn impressive.

I don't think it's a coincidence - being up against a so-called 'rival' of his seems to steer up Roger a little bit more than usual... and then there are still people saying this guy has 'no passion', has a personality of a wooden plank, etc. :rolleyes:

The difference between Roger and all those assumed more passionate players is that he talks with his racket rather than anything else. :angel:

Kuhne
10-18-2007, 09:39 PM
on a more serious note, the main difference in my opinion in this match is that Federer, unlike the last two Canas matches, decided to actualy attack and hit winner after winner instead of just geting the ball in play and expecting to outrally canas, Federer's pride is a weakness and strenght at the same time in my opinion, when you beat federer in long rallys instead of actualy changing his gameplan (which he can easily do) and get an easy win, he keeps doing the same thing over and over to try and beat the other guy at their own game. this happened earlier in the year with canas and he just couldn't do it. I am sure he can but back then he was in a mini slump. this time around he kind of decided not to play around and actualy play the roger federer game which is actualy mixing up all his skills, the backhand, the slice, the forehand, serve and volley etc.. and instead of just geting the ball in play and have fun with canas (which can end in dissaster against such a good player) he actualy just went for winner after winner, which can be risky but at the level he was playing today, there was no risk

Yea, I agree how Roger gets fired up, however against Rafa, as much as I hope for him to turn over that head to head, it is thanks to rafa sucking so much on hardcourt and grass tournaments in the later part of the year the reason why Federer hasn't and probably won't turn it around for a while, most of the time they meet in clay which is great for rafa and bad for roger but I am sure eventualy he'll get him there as well, after all, he is the better tennis player of the two :)

the only two times he's ever made a grass final, one benefiting from an easy ass draw, the other benefiting from two players being injured.

Roger has been geting to clay finals for a longer time, which is why Rafa has a better record against him, if Rafa had been making more grass tournaments in more years in the past, that head to head would be completly different. in my opinion (this is just a humble one of course) Rafa will not beat Roger in grass or hardcourt again in a long time, Rafa's last victory over Roger outside clay was more than a year ago

Well I hope Roger improves over Nadal on clay and play him off the grass court at Wimby but who knows how things will go.

I do think Nadal benefited from Djokovic being injured...for real this time but I'm no Djokovic fan.

Hey guys, does MTF have an ACC Special Honoarary Merit award for something not actually posted here?

This was posted by one CFC_29 (I think you can figure out who this is aka as), under the title "Vindictive Federer brings shame on himself"

The poster writes:


"Against an obviously injured player, most would have had the decency to ease off a little. Not Federer. His planet-sized ego had clearly been damaged by the savage beatings handed out to him by the plucky Argentine earlier in the year. Today, the transitional number one exposed himself as the kind of man who plays five-year olds and refuses to let them win a single point. Disgraceful and appalling behaviour"

There are two Federer out there to me nowadays, the Artistic Federer and an Fired-up Aggressive Federer. In AO he played well but he was playing well through his Artistic side. But matches like Shanghai vs Nadal and this one, he's the fired up aggressive federer. When he plays like this, he's pretty good yeh.
