Fed is rounding into form. Forehand and movement seem to be getting better and better (definitely better than in Doha).

The post match presentation was longer than the match itself

Awful from Wawrinka today

God I did not miss those one-sided Federer finals. Glad they aren't coming as frequently these days.

Roger played very solidly, there were some UEs and such but overall everything worked out perfectly :yeah:

Stan is not in the best of forms, but is better than last year's end which was :o :eek:

Stan the Man is so overrated it's not even funny.

Good that he won, but Stan is not a proper measuring stick. Very suprised that he beat Gonzo, but I still expect an early exit at AO.

Stan was just happy to be out there on the same court as Federer.:D

It seemed like an incredibly long one-on-interview with Federer. :lol: I turned it off before it finished.

Federer played well today, some very nice shotmaking on his end. It was a good match to watch, better than most of the half-hearted efforts/low intensity matches I've seen this week in Kooyong. Wawrinka was very inconsistent.

Wawrinka didn't seem to be bothered moving his feet during the match. During the pre-match interview he pointed out that 'it's only an exhibition', which I guess showcases his mindset going in.

Federer hit some very pretty winners though so it was a good match to watch anyway.

Horrible final. Exactly as the scoreline suggested. For me it was a waste of money (except for Verdasco VS Gonzo, that was good). I can honestly say I had more fun at the 2 hours of qualies I went to after Kooyong finished

Well least Roger's going into the AO still number two in the world and looking in great form. Id say he's the favorite to win by far.

small progress for federer, i still don't think he'll win the AO.

That's what we all said before USO too... :/

I'm not sure, for sure Federer is playing better now than he was one week before USO began.

Wasn't even paying attention to it this week at all.

Im not suprised Federer won though, he has something to prove to everyone after getting chopped up by Murrary so many times recently.

Well done Roger... send the message out there you are one to beat in the AO.

Who was the last person to win kooyong and then the AO? This is more of a bad omen than anything (I think I can recall Agassi doing it a few years back actually... somebody remind me?). Ahhh well, it's just superstitious nonsense I'm going on about now, Fed actually looked in decent shape.

Never in doubt Rogi!! :worship:

Now continue this cruise control mode, and turn it up a few notches. Stamp your authority Fed and put tape on all those mouths who have forgotten what you have achieved.

In case your question was serious I'll answer it for you: A minnie mouse win is a win that is irrelevant for the "big picture". Federer can win as many exhibition tourneys as he wants but that won't help him when he keeps losing to players like Nadal nad Murray at the real ATP tournaments.

Who cares? Federer didn't play last year and still lost. You make your own luck...unless Bud Collins jinxes you.

What are you talking about:confused: Murray has to prove himself not federer, Murray as of now is still a MM performer.

Other than US Open, Federer is a MM player for the last 14 months or so, while Murray has at least won 2 non-MM titles last year :wavey:

so right now TWO AMS > 1 GS? :scratch: :unsure:
One W, Two F and a SF on GS vs a F by Muzza? :o

Muzza's been a beast on HC lately, but he still needs to win a GS to be in the big picture, if Djoker could, why Muzza couldn't? they know they have their shots in the HC GS, 'cuz RG and Wimby are Fedal territory :cool:
