tennisgal_001
09-08-2007, 08:11 PM
Roddick must be cursing his luck that Federer never plays like this against him

Plenty of Fed's errors are forced, Davy is taking the balls early and robbing Fed of time to go for his shots. Roddick is a tool from the baseline and doesn't have the weapons to bother Federer from the back of the court. Tennis is afterall all about match-ups, right? ;)

Dropshot by Fed for no apparent reason, nets it
40-0

It's a shot to play in that situation. A good play as far as I can see and no reason to condemn it just because he missed. The FH drop shot is something Federer almost never does, he is expanding his reportoire.

Meanwhile, great play by Federer to reach duece.

tennisgal_001

Fed's got the greatest forehand in the world, the Ad court was wide open, he didn't need to go for a dropshot in that case, a cross-court forehand would've guaranteed him the point. A Slam SF in not the place to show off your repertoire and experiment shots you don't normally go for.

Meanwhile, a great forehand winner dtl by Fed, 4-1*

Maybe it's because he's leading and just wanted to experiment with the shot? I'm sure he wouldn't have done that if he was behind.

Both players seem to raise their standard only when returning serve

You know when a good match is played, how the writers keep scrambling for superlative to describe it? What the opposite of superlatives? :D

Hey there hun hows you? good week fantsy tennis? mine was very bad :(

Hey ryan,

I was just checking the standings, a rough week for you I can see, that's too bad. Still got a few more tourneys to bounce back.

Fed's serving for the match at last, it's been one rollercoaster this third set.

Was cutting up my annual (since I came to this country) pineapple in the kitchen area for most of the last set so I saw rather than heard much of what went on... All those breaks :o Thankfully it's over now but Fed has to maintain focus better tomorrow.
