Third set.

Federer serving at 3-4 0-30....

obviously out shot was called good.

Nadal should have gotten the break and then he would have served out the match.

But no. I hope that Roger's check to the umpire doesn't bounce :wavey: (that's a joke so chill)

You are right about the call. But you have to expect more than a few bad calls in a five set match. Rafa had chances in the tiebreaker, didn't taken them, now Federer is rejuvenated and looks unstoppable.

Nasty comments about his penis size?!?!

And bad calls have nothing to do with Federer.

One call is not the deciding factor of the match. Roger had a couple of calls against him too. If it was game point then yeah, it would have been a really bad call, but he would have still had to win the game after that one point anyways, so you can't say what would have happend.

Point out one call that went against him. :)

As somebody said, this isn't a game for little boys in blue shorts. (maybe capri shorts though)

You play the next point and put it behind you. It's called the mental side of the game, something Federer excels far in given his experience over Nadal.

But Rafael is 18 and has the shots, just needs to get the experience behind to know how to deal with tough calls.

It's all apart of the game. Accept it and move in and fight! Which Nadal fights very hard!

Great match from both competitors!

KarolBeckFan, I have to watch the match again. But there was a bad call against Roger a little after the one your crying about. I remember saying to myself, well there you go Nadal you got one too.

It was a bad call, but that call was at 0-30. It is true that the way Roger was playing, there was a 99% chance that Nadal would've broken him if he got to 0-40. But you never for sure:) Nadal had his chance in the tiebreaker up 5-3 with the ball on his racquet. Roger came up with the big shots.

Rafael kind of lost his momentum after this point.
It was the umpire's fault, right, but if Rafael was to win the match, he should have been able to play through a bad call. Can't blame it on the umpire.

I want to tho.
