Your thread was first. Unfortunately, I couldn't watch the match. I was just following the scoreline. Is Federer playing well?

And is he really playing Raonic next?? O.o

Fed played well. Hilarious how people expect him to turn Super Saiyan Fed for R2 in Halle... He still needs to own ND and RN at Wimbledon.

Pretty good, better than his last two matches at RG.

Roddick's unlucky loss in Queens really enforced for me how amazing it is that Fed is still at the top of the game, Roddick is younger than him even.

Fed looks relaxed. I was wondering if he was still worn out mentally from RG.
Florian also looks good.

Should Rafa and Roger meet in the final of Halle... Would you guys be happy about that?

I feel like I'd rather see them play each other for the first time on grass since 2008 at this upcoming Wimbledon. We have been denied a rematch of their 2008 battle for years now. That was an exceptionally close affair too. Probably the greatest match I've ever watched.

Relax. First match on grass, he will improve.

Well that is what it said on the TV broadcast I watched. It was a big shot but I don't know if some sort of independent body confirms these speeds to be honest. I am only posting what the tournament radar gun showed on the TV broadcast.

This is the kind of form that will bring Federer Wimbledon, Olympics and Cincinnati in succession.

Crisp, unforgiving and jaw-dropping from the guy that both Nadal and Djokovic will be scared to face from now on. Abu Dhabi or not.

Fed hopefully re-peaks as he gets closer to wimbledon second week. Glad his due shit form came in roland garros where he wasn't winning anyways. Thats about as bad as fed plays during a slam. Likely he will go up from there as all his attacking shots will be rewarded on grass especially his serve and his backhand now is like a weapon since it will stay low especially with the slice.

Federer just needs his serve back which he should by the second week of wimbledon. And avoiding a berdych, tsonga wouldn't hurt although i prefer tsonga still to berdych anyday.


If nadal and fed makes it to the finals. Fed needs that win to get a boost in confidence. We all know fed will be on nole side of draw book it.

Mayer lost one point on serve the 2nd set until he served to stay in it :spit:
he's become more and more mentally weak
Federer's return is terrible.

Clownga not looking good for wimbledon falilng on his finger. Hope for a speed recovery for that guy.


Roger just needs to avoid berdych and he should hopefully be in the semis.

Expected. Olderer even at 5% is too much for Mugyer. Waiting eagerly for another Fedal final, we are overdue for another one. All these clowns are :zzz:

Looks like Fed stayed in 2nd gear the whole match and still won it easily... Can't complain. Today he has a much bigger test.

Good effort from Flo, very nice dropshots, Fed was average, really bad on return till the end of each sets.
