Good job by Fed.

I really liked the 2nd game of the match where Fed broke Hrbaty by hitting some awesome shots.

More than expected win for Fed. Nice match though. Hrbaty had an awesome shot in the first set that will definitely be a tournament highlight.

It's kinda sad what has happened to Hrbaty. He was one of the fittest and most consistent players and then all of the sudden, he vanished. Damn injuries!

OMG!!! I love the cardigan look! Roger is always classy and his style in clothes reflects some of the "old-school" skills in his tennis that have made him the true legend he is. Whatever a couple of mugs on here who want some annoying testosterone-enraged, chest-thumping caveman of a tennis "ballstriker" think is of absolutely no significance. :)

Tennis is a sport not an opera.

Looking classy is for dancing prancing clowns not for athletes. Athletes should be tough and in your face like Rafa.

Honestly, I rather watch Roger in his classy clothing than Nadal grabbing and picking his ass in steady recurrence. Besides, did he wear it during the match - no! Therefore I want you to eschew such silly comments, just drop it....

Great start for Fed.

Some people may hate on the fedtards, but anti-fedtards are worse. Relatings Federer to a clow is a joke.

Hope Fed buries Djokovic by demolishing him in the SF. No idea why ANYONE likes Djokovic over Federer. Nadal is understandable.

I loved how they both sat together in the end.

RFK...same old same old.
Roger wins in straight sets, so instead, RFK goes and play the clothes and "prancing" cards.

Disappointment with Roger apparently doing well again, ouch! ;)

So true.

Federer is a clown who doesnt even know what year it is. He will probably show up in a tutu next year and do more harm to tennis.

Hopefully Nole buries this clown for good.
I hear you laud and clear RFK. Can you imagine how this will affect young children who play tennis? We'll have a whole generation of metrosexual kids, who'll most likely give up tennis in the end and become ballerinas. Depressing.

If someone attacks Federer, why do you find it necessary to attack Rafa? Rafa didn't ask R=FK to post his comments, and since when has Rafa made disparaging comments about your idol. If you don't like watching Rafa no one is forcing you to watch him. I cannot understand why do you have to bash one player or another. G.M is really sick.

Whoa! Hold your horses, dude ;-) Neither did I write nor mean my posting as an attack on Rafa - whom I truly admire as a great and enriching tennisman - but rather as an ocular comparison. Moreover, what are you trying to avenge an insult that was not even one, at all? He actually does grab his a.....okay, well...his pants then....let's meet halfway, ok? ;-P

How many times a week do you practice making moronic statements? Because that is a pretty good one.

Did Soderling have MPs in his match against Soderling @Halle2005?

I think it would have been rather difficult for Soderling to have MPs in a match against himself;)But I don't think Soderling had any MPs in the match against Federer at Halle 2005, but I'm not sure
