Only watched the last games of the second set. Federer didn't look so comfy on the court today and this German lad seemed to be quite dangerous and was going for his shots in the little I saw.

Surprised there isn't a thread for this yet.

He didn't play well today. Too many eassy volleys and FH missed.

Petzschner should have won that first set. He was up a break on two occasions. Once it went to a tiebreaker though, the outcome of the set was never in doubt. The second set was more comfortable for Federer.

I look foward to the final vs. Hewitt tomorrow. These guys have played each other 24 times and Federer has won their last 15 encounters (with Hewitt's last victory coming in 2003 after being 2 sets to 0 down) but he'll have to keep his focus on serve tomorrow otherwise Hewitt will have an opportunity to de-turkey himself as far as the head to head goes.

Not as good as the last few matches, especially on serve. But a win is a win! :D

The German clown was owning Fed for most of the first set but capitulated when it really mattered. Hope Hewitt can at least make the final interesting.

Petzschner played well, Roger too strong when it mattered, now take the title :rocker2:

shaky performance from Rog, Petzschner really had the "all or nothing" attitude and went for his shots most of the time, Roger was kinda lucky to win the 1st set. But still good enough in the end, love the finals matchup vs Lleyton!!!

Nice try from Petzschner.

Fed's ground game still a bit ragged round the edges.

Solid match from Fedex

Broken for the first time since 2006 here, and twice in the same set, plus Petzschner had 0-40 on another of Federer's games.

Pathetic choking from the German when serving from the set. Embarrassing.
