The definition of doing the same futile thing over and over again = insanity/stupidity. Either way, Roddick is utterly and totally fucked. :rolleyes: :cool:

Roddick is just clown and he has got what he was looking for on this tournament!
After two clown' shaw (with Kolyunya Davydenko) where 6/3, *4/3 was easy transformed to 6/3, 4/6, 6/1 (such a demon, Roddick, wasting two his service in a row to 0-40 and 15-40)... hm, I have just cure in Federer and Ferrer to beat Andy such easy as there were those two matches.
Good done, Big Heart Guy! It might to be a SUPER-FINAL (Ferrer vs. Federer)!!!
I just will not bet any on this one match -
I JUST HOPE TO BE HAPPY SEEING GREAT HIGH-CLASS TENNIS ;)
And surely I am very happy to see the great progress of such tallent tennis-player as David Ferrer always was! Good luck for Him in final match allthough I am really big fan of Roger...

Fed is playing like in 2002. Serve and voley, he is trying the same as he was doing it to Ducky. I guess few passing shots and he will be back on baseline.

Returning like poo though.

Similar story to Wimbledon tbh... hopefully he can change things around.

HeretiC
11-17-2007, 11:56 AM
It is all about serve of Fed. If his 1st server drops below 60% he will be toasted. But he is serving at 85% at the moment.

My impression too - if he doesn't manage to return better, it's done for Rogi as soon as his serve fails.

Not looking too good for Roger..... only his serve winning him points so far.... hmmm

15-0 good serve
15-15 forehand UFE, Federer is going for far too much
15-30 cc backhand winner
30-30 good serve, Fed's serve saves him
30-40 Nadal punishes the second serve with a forehand winner
40-40 forehand down the line forces the error

Best odds you will see for a long time.

If Fed wins the first set, I'm betting even more on Rafa.

0-15 great strategy on the passing shots by Rafa, clever play
15-15 good serve
15-30 forehand UFE dumps it into the net
30-30 good serve
40-30 ACE
Game, S&V on second serve

5-4*

Fed's serve is the only thing keeping him in this set, without it it would've been over long ago

Ruski

What's with Roger? I don't like his "lack of confidence" look at all...
He needs to return better and also to construct the points better when engaging in rallies....
Come on Roger!

Bleeh at least Fed's serve and net game look dead on :)

The baseline ralles are scary right now. He looks tight and doesn't seem to have much of a game plan.

Right now I fansy Rafa to take the first set... he's playing solid tennis and being aggressive when he's see the chance

Federer can't serve any better. Rafa just better hope that Fed's level comes down a bit. Fed has a habit of winning the 1st set and losing the match vs Nadal even on Hardcourts(Dubai 06).

Some stats I've been keeping:

On serve, there are just 4(!) rallies in which Fed needs to use his BH, he lost 3 of them 75%

On return, 19 rallies he uses the BH, he lost 13(!) of them. 4 of his 6 winning rallies come from the last game :haha:
