11-27-2011, 08:10 PM
I'll be honest, I didn't believe in it anymore. Didn't watch the third set, but am very happy for FED. However, that second set choke is a reminder as to why Fed lost back to back slams after being up 2 sets to none. So MANY chances to close it in 2. That is something he'll have to address going forward. I don't know how but he won't be able to get slams if he's unable to close the door.

Doesn't feel that important, worst quality i've ever seen. As for the next year, Fed will decline even more, so the likes of Tsonga will beat him more often...

That handshake was quite something, I agree. :worship: He sort of jumped into it, as if saying "too good".

And well it was too good in the end. Tsonga really pushed him when he was ahead, making all sorts of tentative aspects creep into Fed's game. I don't understand people who call Tsonga a clown after the year he's had. Yes he still tends to ball bash and is still very hit and miss at times but overall he's calmed down and is never afraid of a challenge. Had me gasping more than once at the way he went for it in the 2nd set and early 3rd set.

SetSampras
11-27-2011, 08:27 PM

Great. Tsonga played incredible from 2-3* down in the 2nd when Fed had a chance to go up for a double break. Only think Fed did bad was his 1st serve other then that Tsonga was in the zone from the baseline.
In the 3rd Fed had crucial hold @ 2 all. Tsonga was serving like Karlovic and was even hiting great returns. From that point on momentum swing and Fed got the job done!

The whining from some of the Fed fans after the 2nd set was unbelievable. Crying that Fed was a mug and a choker even though Tsonga deserved so much credit for taking that set. He hit a beautiful inside out forehand to save break point at 5-5, after an awful line call, may I remind mind you. Then saved a match point with a huge inside in forehand and won the set with a huge return.

Ultimately I'm happy that Fed prevailed as I am a fan and because it keeps the haters from calling it a choke, but I also feel bad for Tsonga because he fought well and really wanted this. Still a great performance to get this far.

_Chaz
11-27-2011, 08:46 PM
One of the best matches of the year I think. In general I think this match-up is great, many winners, net approaches, big serves, just variety all round.
Tsonga played really well throughout the whole match. He was clearly the better player in the 1st set but couldn't eventually break as Roger served himself out of trouble. Then Fed played a Jesus-like return game to break and win the set one game later. In the 2nd set I feel Fed was clearly better, could even have gone a double break up, in the end Tsonga played a Jesus-like return game and won the tiebreak (although I think Roger should have won this breaker, but he couldn't do anything when serving for the match I think).
In the 3rd set both were equally good I think.
Credit to both guys, really a worthy match to end the ATP season (DC is an ITF event ;)) :worship:

Roger has officially not yet decided if he is going to play DC. But everything looks like he is going to play in February in Switzerland.

Someone in Roger's forum here also said that Roger usually never announces if he is going to play DC on his website when he releases his tournament plan.


I was to nervous to watch the match. When I had a look at the scores Roger had lost the 2nd set and I was afraid that would cost him the match.
I was really happy to receive a textmessage with the great news that he won :D

Congratulations to him for achieving another record. People on here might downgrade this tournament but I guess no real tennis fan would call a tournament with the best 8 players of the season shitty or a MM tournament.

Roger has beaten all players over the years in this tournament so there's no need for the haters to bring up the fact that Murray, Nadal and Djokovic couldn't qualify for the SF and F this time.

Wonderful end to a season in which he wasn't able to win a GS for the first time in ages but he has shown again and again that you should never write him off.

Good to see that Tsonga didn't give up any second but he looked to play better when he had nothing to lose
at 2-5 in the 2nd set he just closed his eyes and went for it and he took the set
In the decider Federer was more solid especially on serve and one break was enough

Fun match. Poor Tsongito. Felt bad for him:awww:

:hug: Jo seemed quite happy afterwards.

kudos to federer

didnt think he'd have the guts to recover mentally after blowing a the match in the second set.

Fed said in Swiss TV afterwards, that he thought alot about those close loses after US Open and that he thinks he solved the mental problem in his head :)

Who would have thought that Fed comes back after the horrible US Open loss to go undefeated collect 3 titles and blow Nadal off the court

:worship:

screw Olmpics and Davis Cup... mickey mouse events

all Fed needs to happen 1 more time is that Wimbledon title, thats it.

+1

Good job by Fed.
He could've easily folded after blowing that second set and also knowing the history of Tsonga coming from behind to beat him.

Fed may really have solved some mental issue here.

immediately when Matt01 posted something this thread died. neither my inspiration can't pull it of now

Fed may really have solved some mental issue here.

Why does Fed and Tsonga have feud as in not in really good relationship compared to others? The one Fed didn't shake Jo's hand during the Gala the night before YEC and the handshake is quite cold from Fed.:p

looks okay to me :shrug:

Roger’s 70th Win In A 100th Final

Roger Federer did it again – winning the year end masters tournament for the 6th time. He had to beat Jo Wilfried Tsonga for the third time in 3 weeks to confirm his supremacy over Jo.

http://www.tennisthoughts.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/fed-2011.jpg
Roger Federer winning 6th ATP World Tour Finals title / AFP PHOTO / GLYN KIRK

I followed the match and did my usual analysis but there’s nothing spectacular to report except that all sets were decided in flashes of brilliance of both players.

First set: Roger has committed 3 unforced errors on the backhand and zero winners until 4-3 where he suddely hit 3 winning backhands. Tsonga added an unforced volley error and that was the deciding break of the first set.

Roger’s backhand was especially bad yesterday against David Ferrer where it seems he couldn’t even rally with it – let alone create anything with it.

Second set: This time it was Tsonga who handed the service game to Federer at 3-2 by making 3 unforced errors on the forehand and allowed Roger to serve for the match at 5-4.

But with the back against the wall Tsonga went for broke on second serve returns and broke Federer back with 3 return winners.

Roger had his chances in the tie-break but it was Tsonga again who went for broke. I wonder why he doesn’t do that all the time.

I personally don’t think he can beat Roger in this form playing his usual, smart and controlled tennis. He needs to let go of thinking and just play based on emotion and instinct.

Of course, that’s easier said than done.

Third set: Both players held their serves easily until 4-3 where they played 13 points on Tsonga’s service game and where Federer eventually prevailed.

I think it was a real mental game where Tsonga simply went for too much too many times. Roger then finished the match with surgical serving.

One interesting stat that was shown on tennistv.com was the this image below:

http://www.tennisthoughts.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/fed-backhands.jpg

It shows you how few backhands Federer actually played (the image was based on 1st and 2nd set stats) and how accurately you need to play the ball to actually force Federer to hit a backhand.

And it’s quite likely that because Federer hits so few backhands that he loses the fine feel needed to play the shots he wants.

He still comes with brilliant backahds here and there but in the last two matches his backhand was very inconsistent.

In any case, the 2012 looks the be extremely interesting with Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and Murray all hungry for more. Looking forward to it…

Its not hilarious at all, its sad. That this old man is fitter and stronger than them. b/c by this time of the year they have absolutely nothing. The fact Rafa and Nole think they need to play so much is their own stupid fault.

No, not necessarily fitter and stronger, but he has the best game suited for tennis: all court. He isn't tested as much when it comes to stamina and risk of injury like Nole and Nadal, who plays a counterpunching and grinding style respectively.

Why else do you think Federer's lasted this long in his career without showing any sign of faltering?

Congrats to Roger, who is undeniably the greatest sportsman to have graced the tennis courts.

Roger's post match presser:

Q. How does that rate? Another record. Six titles. No one has done that before. How do you think you actually played in the match?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, it feels very special, indeed. I mean, you know, I’ve been trying to sort of block it out for the entire tournament, the entire time I’ve been here in London. I just tried to recuperate from Basel and Paris and hopefully get through the round robin stages.
So now it’s finally sort of reality that I’ve been able to win six World Tour Finals. It’s an amazing feeling. I know it’s one of my greatest accomplishments.
As well as the way the match went, I think. I think that was the difference to other matches this year, where I lost so closely, and this time around I was still able to find a way through. I think that was the difference at times during the year which didn’t maybe make this an absolutely phenomenal year.
But this definitely is an amazing finish again to the season. I’ve never finished so strong. I thought I played well. Look, I thought Jo played well. Could I have won it easier? I guess. I had it in my hands. I had a chance to go a double break in the second. I had chances to serve it out. I had chances in the tiebreaker. Yeah, it wasn’t meant to be.
I had to go through the third set, which was tough, but eventually I made it, which felt probably even better going through three sets. The relief was amazing. The joy, of course, as you can imagine, was great.

Q. The way you played the last few weeks, especially this week, do you feel like the best player in the world?
ROGER FEDERER: No, I mean, who cares. I felt like I played great during these last few weeks, like you mentioned. I felt I played great here in London. It gives me a lot of confidence for next year.
But regardless of how it went here, I would have been in a good state of mind for next year. And I think that counts for all the other top guys as well. I think it’s been a good year and a good championships for most of the top eight players. I think most of them are looking forward to next year starting again at some point.
For me, it was the strongest finish I’ve ever had in my career, which I’m very proud of. I’m looking forward to next year. So I’m really excited.

Q. After a spectacular end of the season, regarding 2012, is a gold medal in singles your biggest dream for next year?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, I don’t know. Why not? Still a long way to go. Obviously at this point I’m extremely tired. But, of course, I’m looking forward to coming back to London hopefully on three occasions next year. So this is going to be a very important place to play good tennis, like I did here this week.
Be unfair to the other tournaments to pick London Olympic Games as my number one priority because I have priorities first before that. But I clearly don’t want to miss it and I hope to be healthy when the Olympics do come around.

Q. Just tell us about the other members of the top four, what a brilliant season we have in prospect next year, and also a little bit more about how motivated you are to get back on the Grand Slam winning trail.
ROGER FEDERER: Sure, to win Grand Slams would be nice. I’ve missed out on a few occasions now this year, and maybe also some last year. So I feel like it might be around the corner. Maybe not. The other players obviously have a role to play in this.
Novak was the Player of the Year, which goes without saying. A guy who can win 40 matches in a row from the start of the season completely deserves it till the very end of it.
I thought Andy played a very good season this year, Murray. Just unfortunate he couldn’t finish here strong. Other than that I thought he’s going to be very tough to beat next year.
And Rafa with his class anyway, he’s always going to be a threat for the throne, to win all the big tournaments.
I think the prospects are good. We also saw 5 to 8 or extremely close as well. Behind that, anything is possible, too. I think right now we have great quality within the top 10, even within the top 20, 25 actually. I’m looking forward to a tough season next year.

Q. You talked about the fact that this time you managed to win a close match, maybe a few times this season it hasn’t gone your way. What made the difference today? Is it a mental thing?
ROGER FEDERER: I think it’s a mental thing, yes. Not only. Sometimes it’s also the player playing better than you. Jo played better than me at Wimbledon. Maybe not much, but enough just to come through. Same as Rafa at the French Open in the finals, Novak in the semis of the US Open. It’s fine to respect that. But I feel when it happens maybe that often, I do have to question myself that maybe I did something wrong.
I think I’m mentally good right now. That was also one of the reasons why I did take some time off, to actually think it through, you know, get into the right mental mindset because we do I don’t want to say underestimate or overestimate the mental part of the game, but there is a lot of time that goes by out on tour, during a match, you’re just trying to stay positive, but you can’t always be positive out there. You know, it’s just too difficult. That’s where maybe the doubts were just a bit too strong during certain important moments.
I think I didn’t have those doubts now for the remainder of the season, which is what I wanted to get out of my system during this six weeks’ break, and I was able to do that.

Q. Two things about momentum. One, today after the second set, did you feel the momentum had swung over to Jo? In terms of your finish this season with Basel, Paris, and now, how much do you think that matters to the beginning of the next season, or will the slate be completely wiped clean come January 1st?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, I don’t feel like it completely swung his way, the momentum. He had to go through to the tiebreaker. He wasn’t serving his absolute best right then either. So I did have my chances in the breaker. I thought I was almost a better player in it.
But because I did serve for the match, and he knew that, somehow just felt like it was not going to go my way. I was trying everything I could. I think I took some good decisions. But my serve let me down, like it actually let him down in the breaker. There was a lot on the line. That was a bit disappointing for me.
But I actually did take the right decisions going into the third set. How I wanted to return Jo, how I wanted to play him from the baseline. I think I was able to stay calm mentally throughout that third set, because at that point, it’s very easy to lose your mind over what just happened.
Then for next year, yeah, I think I answered the question. I think everybody’s going to have an equal good chance to win the big tournaments. I think the injuries we saw were not that serious that we have to worry for anybody at the beginning of the season. I think that’s the most important at this point.

Q. You haven’t lost since the US Open. Is still the biggest regret of your year the match point that you didn’t make against Djokovic? Also, before, Tsonga said you have won everything, your career is perfect, but you’re missing the Olympic Games and the Davis Cup. Is the Davis Cup a priority for you or is it not anymore?
ROGER FEDERER: No, I mean, I said it. I don’t think the match against Novak was my biggest disappointment of the season. It wasn’t the finals. So I felt like my chances were there as much at the French Open against Rafa. I mean, that would have been an amazing accomplishment to beat Rafa in the finals of the French Open. So I look back on that one with maybe a few more regrets.
I know I was one point away from getting to the US Open final, but it all happened in a moment. It was past.
I think for me, most important is the reaction I show after losses like this. Because it was a tough loss, like you mentioned. It was one that hurt. It was one that makes you wonder, How in the world can I end up losing this match? But Novak had such great momentum going this season, you just felt like it was his season.
But to bounce back and not lose a match from that moment on I think shows, again, how tough I am, the right decisions I can take. I also lost to Jo twice in a row at Wimbledon and in Montréal. Now I beat him four straight times. These are the kinds of reactions I expect from myself.
So to come through and prove it to myself was a great feeling.
Look, I don’t know, I always have to explain myself. But I don’t have a sheet where I say, I have to achieve everything. I really don’t.
Would I take all these accomplishments? Yes, I would. But do I love winning six World Tour Finals? Yes, I love it equally. The effort that goes into all this is equally big. Every tournament I play in some ways is a priority for me, otherwise I wouldn’t be playing. I don’t play 35 tournaments. I play, you know, a certain amount where I know I can perform well. If the Olympics, Davis Cup, all these things are part of it, it’s great.
Right now I’m happy the season’s over. I’m happy the season went well. In some ways I can’t believe another season is over. But I’m happy I’m still strong and healthy and really excited for next year.

Q. I think the World Tour Finals equals a Grand Slam as a major title event. Now you have 16 Grand Slam titles and six World Tour Final titles. How much satisfaction do you have holding both records?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, of course I’m extremely happy and extremely proud. I still don’t feel like I’m better than Pete Sampras, or Lendl for that matter. I still believe they are one of the all time greats to play the game. I’m just happy to be compared to them.
I’m actually happy that they are mentioned while I’m doing this because they have done amazing things in our sport. Sometimes legends do get forgotten rather quickly, which is unfortunate.
So for me to hear we are talking about Pete, Ivan, other players, I think is great for the sport and great for them. I mean, that I hold both records, sure, I’m very happy about it, I’m proud, because I know the effort that has gone into it. It’s longevity, it’s something you can’t just do over a short period of time.
I used to be famous for not being consistent. I think this one proves to me that I was able, and proves to maybe many people, that if I can be, then many other people can be successful for a long period of time, as well, because I thought that was a very difficult thing to achieve.

Q. Talking about when you had that mental freshening up during your break, did you speak to anyone? Did you go back and look at your old matches? What was the process you went through?
ROGER FEDERER: It was a lot, you know, talking to Severin and Paul and Pierre and so forth, my team. Obviously, my wife, as well. Just going through things, how they are going on tour, how I would like them to be. Everybody bring in their own ideas, giving their own opinions, because in some way winning solves everything.
When you do lose, a lot of more problems come out. You see a lot more problems than there actually are. It’s like in the press room, not everyone can win the tournament, so they say you played poorly because you lost. I don’t always agree with that. It’s someone on a team that can create that vibe.
For me it was important to step back and sort of have that bird’s view from up top and say, Where am I right now in my year? It’s been a good year. I know I’ve been playing well, I’ve been healthy. When is all this hard work going to pay off?
I just had to stick with it and have the right mindset, which I then had obviously coming back.

Q. What exactly were the doubts at that time?
ROGER FEDERER: Nothing that I can put my finger on. It was just a matter of trying to find something or nothing, at least think it through. I always said I was going to play full on until the US Open and see where my ranking is going to be at after the US Open, see where my health is, how much more I’m going to have left for this year. And then also looking ahead for next year with the Olympics coming around, it’s going to be a different type of season. I had to look ahead for that, as well, how I wanted to manage my schedule. That was it really.
It was in some ways simple, but a tough choice to make not going to Asia. I was disappointed not being able to do that. There are so many reasons not to do it that it was the only right decision this year. I hope to be back again in Asia next year. But I’m happy it’s kind of paid off for the end of the season.

Q. I know it rather bucks the argument that people are playing too much tennis at the moment. Do you think to make the Masters final extra special, it should return to being the best of five sets?
ROGER FEDERER: The finals?

Q. Of this tournament.
ROGER FEDERER: I think so. I think so. I mean, if it’s a match like this, it’s fine. I think it’s still enough tennis for the people. I think it’s exciting. We had the whole scenario today in today’s match.
But if I would have served it out, it would have been over in a hurry. I think I almost felt the spectators weren’t quite ready for it to end quite yet, although many would have been happy for me, they would have loved to see more tennis.
I remember sitting in a room in Shanghai where players were asked, Would you like it to be five sets or three sets, the year end final? Kind of went in a circle.
Everyone said best of three sets. I was the only guy that said, I think we should have best of five sets. Okay, let’s make it best of three sets. I don’t care.
I do care actually. I think it makes for a great year end. Sure, you can see why maybe it’s healthier to play best of three sets. Maybe the year end could be a best of five set match. I do believe that, yeah.

Q. The season is now over for you, but there is still a Davis Cup final ahead next week. What is your feeling for this final? Do you think that Spain is the overwhelming favorite? Do you see any chance for Argentina?
ROGER FEDERER: I’m sure it’s an open match in some ways. But I think that Spain is the favorite. Are they the overwhelming favorite? I don’t think it matters. They are the favorites. They’re playing at home. They have an incredibly solid team.
But then again, the Argentinians, they have their players and their team, as well. If a surprise happens, anything’s possible. Obviously it’s normal to favor the Spaniards with Rafa on the team back on clay. It’s logical.

Q. With so many titles and records in the bag, how do you assess your hunger and desire? Has it dipped at all? Is it stronger than ever?
ROGER FEDERER: It’s normal really. I don’t go through phases where I feel like I want to play 10 more years and then only six more months. I always look ahead one and a half to two years, and that’s still the same right now. Then as time goes by, you know, you see how the body is.
I love this game more than anybody, so I’m not all of a sudden going to wake up in the morning and say I don’t like it anymore.
It’s a lot of sacrifice. It’s a lot of effort I have to put in every day. I know that. But I do enjoy that because what I get in return is moments like I got today, with my team, with my family. It’s priceless really. So for this reason I’m very excited for next year.
I am happy that the season is over because it has been long, it has been grueling. But, yeah, I’m very happy and upbeat about what’s to come.

So happy for Roger right now! It must be hard for his haters to come through moments like this...

Chokerer showed up at the end of the second set (but Tsonga really upped his level), then Goaterer came back in the third to take it all. Sixth YEC, that's great! :worship:

Where is that brilliant Everko's thread " Where will be Federer's next title when both Nadal and Djokovic participating " ?
