Gonzalez's career record since 2002 (when he turned pro) is 4 - 6. That's 10 matches 6 years.

At least a couple of unknowns in the first two rounds - Stepanek in the third round will be very dangerous. Good serve stats, though.

yeah the commentators were saying how this was a big moment in his career. not many people get to experience this. and he pushed hard in the first. so i think it was great.

obviuosly more pleased at the fact that Roger won rather comfortably. :D

Convincing stuff by Roger! Good net-play, stable backhand and not many UF off the forehand wing. Not so sure about the outfit tho.

Good performance from Federer today. Good effort from Gonzalez especially in the first set, but it was always likely that he wouldn't be able to stay with Federer for long.

Not overly impressive, but I still like his chances to win his 5th straight. The only thing possibly holding him back will be the outfit.

In that match the only good thing about his game was serving. Everything else was mediocre at best. He won't win in it with this type of performance.

He should have won 0-0-0 though. A loss is coming in R2. Still, at least he will leave having dropped only 965.

Phau would have kicked Federers ass if he was playing him.

Thanks for the insightful observation. I think that the ATP rigged it so that Phau played Nadal, the only guy that could currently beat him. Might as well have been the championship match.

Fed always plays challengers. Just check out how he won those 12 slams.

good win =D for fed

:eek: haha! This Fed can't even beat Stepanek let alone Djokovic. How is he going to expect to win this tournament if he drops his serve to a guy who hasn't played on hard courts for quite some time?

:confused: what part of my comment was a prediction? the only one making MTF run of the mill predictions is you.
I was just saying playing well in a first round match is a confidence booster. Specially if one set goes to 6-0.
Had nadal gotten a similar result against ANY player, qually, mug or wat not everyone would be saying "hand him the title already" :rolleyes:

I wasn't saying you predicted or predicted wrong. I was just saying he can have all the confidence boost he wants but if he plays like that, he ain't getting that trophy. Remember he will probably have to go through Djokovic and Nadal for the title. Not that he can't do it but these so called confidence boosts won't make his backhand solid against the pounding he'll get against Djokovic and Nadal

I can tell where you're going with this--and I like it. He has fresh legs. He'll be a force on clay. :worship:

Maximo Gonzalez was without a doubt the biggest mug in the draw. He came in on a 4 match losing streak, which included a straight sets loss to the world 199 and a bagel set from Zverev on a clay court.

The last time he played on a surface that wasn't clay was in a challenger event on the 6th of January...

Roger played well, it was too easy for him to be honest.

He had some nice touch shots, backhand needs work, forehand seems good. Should make Quarters or further. It was good to see Roger quite relaxed and in control, and since Wimbledon he has looked like he could struggle against anyone. Not the case today.

Roger looked so happy when he won.

08-27-2008, 01:46 PM
I thought his backhand actually looked good, and more solid than it has in a while. A lot of depth on it.

his timing was a bit off on the passing shots, but the forehand looked good, I guess.

well he normally plays better as tounrey wears on... but this is an anormal year... so i dont expect anything. He does, however, play better with confidence... his game is greatly affected by confidence, so gaining a couple of easy wins is good for him... if not in USO for the next ones.

Didnt see it yet (since the fucktards who run US open always seem to need to put Federer's matches at night) so cant judge

but i'm not any more optomistic just because of an easy score win

Well, Roger was confident in the previous years but he didn't surely look like it against Djokovic or Nadal this past year. Roger should definitely make it to semis but I can't see him going any further if he plays Novak. In fact, I can see Novak beating Roger handily in 3 or four sets max.

No Darth Federer this year. :awww:
More like Blah Federer in that dull shade of greyish bown.

As for the match itself, I was pretty content with Fed's performance after the first set. He did enough to beat the opponent across the net comfortably and advance with relative ease, which is all I truly expect of him (especially these days). Why some people apparently are never satisfied with anything less than a 'Ninja-Fed' or 'god-mode' performance, even in the early stages against no-names where it's not needed, still puzzles me. I'd rather the No. 2 save whatever extra brilliance and energy he has in him for when it really counts later on against tougher opposition.
