Ok... so maybe this belongs in the Federer forum BUT this is a great display of TENNIS first and foremost, which I think is worth viewing as it WAS a fine display. I hope you enjoy and I one doesn't need to be a fan of either of these players to enjoy these highlights, just a fan of tennis. :D

Samprassian Smash in the 2nd part of the highlights. :)

Big thank you to Mark who is the guy who made these highlight reels.. I WONDER if he posts here?

Enjoy.

Wow, haven't seen Fed look that good since the Australian Open. Thank you for the links. Fed's looking nice in that all black.

Just made me realize again why I enjoy his game so much. That was a fun display. Is anyone else even close to this guy?

This may sound silly but one of the things that stands out about him is his facial expression when he hits the ball. Everyone else looks like they're in pain, or angry, but Federer looks like he's dreaming. I'm sure this has been mentioned before but to me it's interesting.

GREAT signature Bremen!

Yes, it has been mentioned before but still, interesting point I agree, he looks quite serene when striking the ball.

What do you guys reckon to Capdevilles' game after seeing these highlights? I reckon he mixes it up quite well... plays a reasonably accomplished all-court game.

Well to win that many games against a fed playing so well is pretty impressive. He was making some very strange grunts during the match, trying to throw fed off? I don't know....

You could search for Mewug83 on Youtube.com and ask him, he might be able to help. Mewug 83 is the guy who made the highlight reels.

Thanks. This is great stuff. Fed really looks top motivated in those clips. His movement looks to be back, whereas in the warm-up tournaments he often looked lazy on court.

Wow hating someone is messed up. People just seem to like to hate some people.

Nadal's style isn't for me but I think he's a nice guy and I can't see myself hating him. Obviously Fed feels the same and still likes Nadal.

Doesn't sound silly at all... often I'd come upon some images that looked almost as if he was intentionally posing for camera; only after taking a second glance you'd realize it is a shot from an actual match, just after he's executed a shot. But his expression is completely calm, as if he feels no strain at all. Simply amazing.

Yeah, it's unusual for sure. Sure all other aspects of his game are special but his composure is totally unique. It needs to be studied. LOL

Paul usually exagerate the grunts, it's typical from him :lol:

First time I'd seen him play...the commentators thought it was pretty weird too. But he made a good showing for himself...a lot of other players would have been bageled.

Federer and Gasquet together? Too much hotness for me. Would need two buckets for when I drool. :drool:

I think, to reach the height of one's athletic ability, you must achieve the apex of the Zen of your being. This Zen is a place where you are so fully aware of your abilities that you are neither frustrated by what appear to be simple errors, nor are you amazed by your own feats of fancy. You expect them as they come, because you know exactly what you are capable of. It is, presumably, a completely relaxed state, physically and mentally, which requires more effort than what might be assumed by a mere grunt or a wry grimace.


Or maybe I'm just being far too over analytical and that's just how he is, but I think my explanation is cooler.

Your posts are typically analytical, that's why I love you. :hug:

Your suggestion that he actually has to make more of an effort is interesting...by now though I think he is so used to the tennis court that it has become close to effortless.

It feels nice to be appreciated. *smile*

I think the effort he puts in is more off the court than on it. I think, on the court, all we see is the finished product. You realise a lot of players are able to get into a "zone", but not many of them are able to keep it up for long stretches in a match. Federer has, at times, managed to sustain it for an entire tournament.

I generally get the feeling that his emotional and mental preparation for a match is much more intense than his physical preparation.

Well he is still one of the fittest players on tour, I remember reading about a practice session before paris where he wore out all his partners...but I do agree with the mental side of it..no one is weak mentally when they have been dominating the tour four straight years.

Definitely his best consistent level since Australia, which is good to see - the boy means business and it's nice to see him coming on strong again as the end of the season approaches - he has a lot of points to defend.

There has be truth in this. Federer is such a special case and one has to see a bit further than what the 'eyes show' to appreciate what he has achieved, and the way he carries the game and himself within the actual matches. Its sad that there's some people who cant appreciate this, but maybe with following the game long enough more of the tennis fans do, I can say I've taken some time.
Its another level of mindset, truly amazing and captivating and all we should do is drop jaws and enjoy. :devil: :D

Thanx for the highlights, it was too late so I just had to fall asleep. It seems Capdeville gave a good match and enjoyed it, it was funny when he entered the court and the crowd cheered him and he gave this "thanx guys I will try" quick smile/wave :lol:
