Roker was 5-1 up in 3rd set :lol:
then Tsonga had 3 mps at 6-5* 40-0 on Roger serve, but blew it all (on mp #3 Tsonga had shot to pass Fed, but he hit it into the net :retard:)
finally he clinched it in TB, well Roker just made a DF in the end :haha:
ridicolous match

allez Jo! :D

Federer 5-2 up in the 3rd set serving for the match. Tsonga broke back and had 3 matchpoints at 5-6 0-40 and chokes them. Tsonga played great in the tie-break, the better player won.

UNREAL from Tsonga, from 5-1 down in the third set, he wins 6 games in a row!!

Major, major choke from Federer, probably his worst ever, even against Nadal he doesn't choke this badly.

Very entertaining first set from both of them. First half was very solid, simple but highly effective 1-2 combos which did not give the returner any chance. Then it got funky in the 9th game culminating with TB. And then a real turn off in the next 2 sets, was it due to the injury from the fall at the last point in that TB or something else, Tsonga just vanished and Federer routinely got to 5-1. And then Tsonga suddenly awakes and completely surprised Federer getting to 3 consecutive MPs in the 12 game. Unbelievable comeback. In the end this turned out to be quite a strange match. :eek:

Federer, please sort yourself out over 3 sets - losing from 5-1 up in the final set is beyond dumb.

Congrats to Tsonga, that's quite a comeback. Winning a match on your opponent's df kinda sucks though.

Roger can't walk into these tournaments cold anymore, he needed a warm up tournament before this.

Who cares. Better to Tsonga than Murray. Fed was obviously not ready and he doesn't need this. This should do wonders for Tsonga's confidence.

thought he had blown it after missing 3 mp's before the tie break.

Once again Roger loses while having won more points... how many times has that happened now? Anyone know? What's the record?

So from 6-7 to 6-1, 5-1, then 5-6 0-40 and Tsonga wins in a tie-break? Man, I wish I could have seen that...

Well, anyway, too bad for Roger, but he's gotta close it, no excuses, congrats to Tsonga for hanging in there.

On a less festive note, where did you go Jo for a set and a half. I was afraid there was something really wrong with his elbow given that he couldn't put a first serve in to save his life.

Nice rollercoaster. :lol: Federer was never beating Murray tomorrow anyway, so Tsonga might just as well get a shot. Fed's first serve just went missing for long periods every now and then.

Great to see Tsonga really hitting his way too victory in the breakers. Impressive. :D

when will you all learn? it's clear he doesn't care about masters 1000 events... he was 5-1 in that 3rd set only because tsonga was playing really bad and gifting his service games with double faults and stupid UE's...

that "come on" when he saved 3 match points at 6-5 was pure comedy...

this sort of scenario will NEVER happen at USO...

No, it wasn't a tank. You don't go to the trouble of getting to 5-1 in the third and then just decide to lose. Besides, he saved 3 MPs and there was a huge "come on!" in that 6-5 game.

It was not a tank, so that excuse is out.

Amusing overreactions here. Awful loss of course, but it's long been apparent Fed doesn't give a monkeys about masters events (clay excluded, as prep for Roland Garros).

He's not made a hard/indoors TMS final for 2 years now, and only won one in 07/08/09 (compared to 6 slams during the same period).

08-14-2009, 10:31 PM
I don't think it's that much of a mystery as to what happened, nor do I think it was a choke. Tsonga hurt his arm on the last point of the first set tiebreak and then started to tank. Finally he got over being frustrated with his injury in the middle of the third set and began trying again, meanwhile Federer's intensity and focus had dropped because Tsonga wasn't trying. Federer couldn't turn it back on in time and Tsonga stole the third set. As I said before, Ali got him with the rope-a-dope.

Amusing overreactions here. Awful loss of course, but it's long been apparent Fed doesn't give a monkeys about masters events (clay excluded, as prep for Roland Garros).

He's not made a hard/indoors TMS final for 2 years now, and only won one in 07/08/09 (compared to 6 slams during the same period).

let them enjoy the moment philosophicalarf its been the theme of 2009 federer has a blip all the haters crawl from under a rock, federer wins they all return!

I've been saying that for quite some time now.

No the WTA scoreline this week in Cinci was

7-6(6) 0-6 7-6(3) by Hantuchova/Zvonareva.

But these scorelines are proliferating so much on the ATP I don't think you can insult WTA anymore.

Very true, that Federer at Masters Series has been shambolic on hardcourt.

Not sure why though? Fast surface, He's slower. This doesn't explain his very very ineffective serve.

It was a combination, Fed's 1st serve % dropping but Tsonga reading it better as well. Funny that Tsonga won with only 50% 1st serve, but his improved fitness really made this possible, he looked just as fresh at the end as he did at the beginning, and the middle was just..:).

Tsonga was slightly better than Fed in the 1st set.

After the fall Tsonga lost his game and Federer crushed him, he continued with this until late in the 3rd set, then a combination of Chocking and brilliant tennis assured the victory for Tsonga.

No, it wasn't a tank. You don't go to the trouble of getting to 5-1 in the third and then just decide to lose. Besides, he saved 3 MPs and there was a huge "come on!" in that 6-5 game.

It was not a tank, so that excuse is out.

he didn't decide to tank from 5-1, but the thoughts of tanking could have come to him from 5-5, that "come on" is just a natural reaction for the high any player would feel after saving three match points from love:40.

well played Roger, fool them for the USO :devil:

Wonder what Muzza is thinking...because Tsonga is going to be very dangerous anyway. :scared:

very funny.

I don't know if in the end he wanted to lose the match but I'm sure the thought of tanking cross his mind.
The first set tiebrake was a joke. He was holding to love throught the set, then in the tiebreak he pust just one 1st serve out of 6 tries, misses the most simple backhand from the middle of the court with his oppenent down and goes to his chair smieling.
In the next set he has a 75% in. In the third the same story untill 5-2.

Well well. I don't know whether to :bigcry: or :haha: :haha: :haha:.
Well :haha: :haha: :haha: it is, then.

First of all, CONGRATS to Tsonga! :hatoff: :bowdown: :worship:
AMAZING display of tennis in that first set, from both players btw, but it was obvious that Tsonga made the better impression, and his win of that set was fully deserved.
Apparently he had hit his elbow on a fall, and it hampered him very much at the beginning of the second set, where he had to take a medical time-out. His serve went down and mentally he completely cracked. As such, a 6-1 win for Feds in the second.
And then third... well who over here didn't think the match was over when Feds lead with two breaks in no-time? I surely did. Fantastic job for hanging in there, coming back to life, and snatching away the victory, Jo-Willie!!!


And then, Mr. Federer. Well Well. ~takes Deep Breath~

ARROGANCE, much?
I can't believe I actually posted this, but it's the plain and simple truth!

Apparently, he came out this afternoon to watch the Muzza-Davidenko match. Yes, we all saw him out there. So, Mr. Federer, you thought you were already in the semis and this match was a mere formality???

That's not 'arrogance, much', that is MUCH ARROGANCE!!! :mad:

He literally fell asleep in that third set, as if it all didn't matter anymore. Add this with a complete failing 1st serve, whereas Tsonga started to come to life again... and there you have it.

Ah, here's my expectance for the Post Match Presser:
Q: "Questions for Mr. Federer... your opinion of this match, Mr. Federer?"

Mr. Federer: "Well, eh, it was a tough match, you know. I should have won that first set, you know, it only came down on a couple of points. [Of course Feds, and your opponent MADE THEM, you didn't.]
And then came that medical time-out you know, and well, you know, I was doing pretty good you know, and then the third set, you know, I was leading with two breaks you know, so I fell asleep you know...
[because you thought you were already in the semifinal, Mr. Federer?]
And then suddenly he started to play very well you know, and I couldn't get a first serve in to save my life anymore, you know, and I lost... "
~starts to sob~

Q: But Mr. Federer, don't you think it was a bit premature of you to already go watching Mr. Murray's and Mr. Davydenko's match in the afternoon, in stead of preparing on your own upcoming match?

Mr. Federer: "Uh Uh Uh... go away, don't ask me such irritating questions! I am the GOAT! G-O-A-T!!! You aren't allowed to ask me critical questions!!! AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!"

(and thus ends the post-match interview. The GOAT was never seen again.)

Sorry folks, but I am mad at Feds this time. Really REALLY MAD.

It'll be a something to see Federer lose from 2 breaks up. Didn't think his lordliness was capable of losing like that. Even if he was asleep. Surely the GOAT can play tennis whilst sleepwalking?

Go you good thing Tsonga! :rocker2:

that's what I'm saying, it's obvious really.

No. Tsonga just didn't choke like Federer expected him to do.

He was helped through his last two slams on chokes too. He hasn't even been playing well in the slams just Haas, Del Potro, Roddick, and Soderling(Wimbledon) gave him a push in the right direction.

In truth, Federer's level hasn't really changed much since 2008. Yes he won 2 slams, but it was far from impressive. He struggled all of Paris and most of Wimbledon losing set to Kohli, caught a break with Soderling, and escaped Rodduck.

At the moment Tsonga won first set after spectacular dive I was sure he would lose this match. He must have felt big pain in his right hand because in normal circumastances he celebrates such an impressive setpoint...
The final outcome is extraordinary. Usually is tough to await a win of a player who is a great fighter (Tsonga isn't) against a player who struggles mentally (Federer doesn't) at that streak of games - Federer won 11 out of 13 games! For me it's more amazing that was 6-1 5:1... Tsonga was actually an inexistent player through 2nd and 3rd set. And then, suddenly in the 7th game Federer played two returns with surprising carelessness - was he punished for that? Anyway, Tsonga awoke just when he won game to be 4:5 down in the third. In that moment he believed he would win it. Amazing match from psychological point of view, really difficult to understand what happened to Federer's mind.
On the other hand credit to Tsonga for his calmness after wasting triple match point. He's a great tie-break player and confirmed it today :)

Federer's level has been the same all year. He hasn't played particularly well in either of his slam wins. It was average play with a jolt/boost by his opponents choking.

And I'm holding you to that. If Federer losing to Murray at USO SF/F you cannot post for the rest of the year.

Just because you win does not mean you're playing well. It just means you're better than that opponent. Federer has yet to play Djokovic and Murray since losing to them both before his run. With this loss to Tsonga, he still looks just as frail as he did before.

To be fair I dont think Mirka put a live bet on tsonga when Fed was 5-1, but I do think he could have prevented the situation occurring easily. Tsonga didnt do anything special until tie-break.

Had his bitch Davydenko been waiting in the semi Im not sure this complete concentration collapse would have happened. I think he got ahead of himself.

It's not the first time Roger lost a break in the deciding third set, it actually happened quite a few times the last twelve months. Just to lose two breaks is a new "quality" in that regard. Anyway, as long as it doesn't happen in the slams, no big deal as far as I'm concerned. When only focusing on the 2004-07 period people miss out on the fact that Roger used to blow leads quite frequently in his early years as well.

Sorry, a winning streak nor 15 GS makes one a perfect person, and there's nothing wrong in pointing out that he's made a fool of himself in this match.

Fed interview:lol:

TSONGA/R. Federer

7 6, 1 6, 7 6

An interview with:

ROGER FEDERER

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. An adjective to describe what happened if you can, Roger? How do you describe that?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, it happens in tennis. It's never over until it's over. It showed today.
I thought it was a very up and down match, obviously. I think I should have won the first and he completely lost his game for an hour there, you know, through the second, the third.
It was unfortunate I couldn't serve it up.

Q. Do you feel when you wonder if your opponent is injured that it's hard to stay in it in that moment?
ROGER FEDERER: No. I'm used to playing so many matches that that stuff doesn't bother me, you know.
He didn't look injured to me. He was just not serving very well, you know. If that then had something to do with his arm or whatever from him falling, I don't know. No, I was just trying to focus on the match and trying to close it out.

Q. Was it windy? Because the serve...
ROGER FEDERER: No. Yeah, I mean, I didn't serve well in the first serve, but I still thought I should have maybe won it. We had a fun tiebreaker. Then his serve completely went off.
But it wasn't too windy out there. Actually it was quite surprising.
Q. Are there any elements of last year when you came in and against Simon, maybe you hadn't played enough after Wimbledon. This year you had a longer rest. Does anything like that...
ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, now you talk like this. If I would have won, you don't talk like this. Obviously it's the same for me.
All in all I thought it was a decent match. I didn't think it was bad, but it wasn't great, either. It's one of those matches I can live with, you know.
Of course I hope I get through them, especially being up a double break and stuff. So it's obviously disappointing, but you know, that's what Jo does. He doesn't make a return for three hours, and then he puts in a few and then all of a sudden he gets back into the match.
I never should have allowed it, but it did happen so it's a pity.

Q. What do you take overall from the tournament and the three matches you got in here?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, I thought it was fine. It was great to get some matches in, you know, ahead of Cincinnati and at the US Open, but you know, my goal wasn't really just to play matches here and sort of show up and do press conferences, you know. That was not the point of the whole the whole trip here was trying to do well and trying to win the tournament.
So obviously I didn't reach that, but it's fine, you know. I've had a lot happening the last few months and so it's not a complete disappointment, because I still thought I played all right.

Q. What will you look to improve for in Cincinnati?
ROGER FEDERER: Closing out a match like that. (laughter.)
You can't really work on that, you know. But just go out in the practice courts, you know. Try to work on a few things and just make sure to get off a good start over there, because conditions are different again.
Who knows? Maybe it will be warmer, maybe more windy, different opponents, different draw. So it's not easy. You know, those Masters Series you can see look at the draw today. Top eight players are left, so obviously it's always hard to win any kind of matches like this.
Yeah, I'm looking forward to playing next week as well.

Q. If you forget the first set, it's 6 1, 5 1, can you recall letting one get away like that that you've dominated for that long a period?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, you know, in the moment it just happens. You just try to go game by game, point by point. Next thing you know you're up after you're disappointed, you know, you lost the first set. I thought I should have won that.
Then I'm up 5 1 and I end up finding myself at 5 All 10 minutes later. It was a tough match to sort of go through, you know, because either it was very close or very one sided. That didn't make it easy on the rhythm, obviously.

Q. How difficult a player is he? You played him before, but what are the real challenges for you? Is it streakiness?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, if I look at this match, I guess so, but I think he can do better than that, you know. I don't think he's just a streaky player; otherwise he wouldn't be top 10 in the world.
He's got a wonderful serve. His first serve is great. It's hard to read. It's got great pace. He's a great athlete, you know. He's got a good forehand too, and that makes him a dangerous player.
I definitely think he's got, you know, much more potential to find in his game to even become a better player, but he's done very well already thus far, and I'm sure we'll see him much more in the future.

Q. What was going through your head as the games kept slipping away at the end of the third?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, I think I got off bad starts on all of my service games towards the end. I think I was down maybe Love 30 in each service game. That was a problem for me.
If I maybe just get off 15 Love, 30 15 kind of game, then things might look different, you know. But I didn't, so I had to scramble each time and have to start playing safe a little bit, and that's exactly kind of what he needed because otherwise I was just going to hand it over to him.
This way, you know, he made me work for it and he did well to come back. It's not something I go through very often, being up 5 1 and ending up losing, get broken back to back after having not broken especially throughout the whole match.
It's tough, you know, but you're still in it with a chance. But in both tiebreaks I served horribly, and I guess that cost me the match in the end.

it's only natural to think he is already in the semis when Tsonga was playing that way, we all thought that, the commentators thought that, the crowd thought that, what do you expect, he isn't a machine.

Tsonga's comeback wasn't expected and it caught Fed off-guard, it happens, he didn't choke anywhere in the match, but seems no one around here understands what choke really means anyway :retard:

when Tsonga levelled it out at 5-5, Fed didn't even try to win the match, he couldn't find a 1st serve like he did all match, he kept unleashing his forehand going for broke not building up the points and attacking the net intellegently or using the drop shot like he did in the 1st and 1nd sets.

anyway, hopefully this loss, like all losses around this time last year, won't mean much in the GSs, it's not like we are hungry for more titles or wins anyway, but it was still pathetic to lose in that manner and not pleasant to see.

He did make a fool of himself in this match, he should have taken the first set, but you have to give credit to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for coming back - Federer thought he won the match at 5-1 in the third and lost some concentration, most players would have given up and the match is finished, but his serve was vanished meaning he was forced to play baseline tennis, Tsonga's FH then start dominating, while Federer had no idea what to do - especially with his FH.

I've seen Federer in this position many, many times before, he usually sorts it out with clutch serving, but not tonight.

But the thing is he only beat mugs or his bitches. Once he plays top level players he will be put in his place like before.

Federer is well past his best level, he cannot beat everyone now - he beat his first two opponents with a break of serve set and a tie breaker set (6-4 7-6 followed by 6-3 7-6), before he would often win 6-1 6-1, 7-5 6-1, etc, but it's clear you can see he's not the hard court player he once was (mind you at the Australian Open he did slaughter Del Potro and really should have beaten Nadal).

Will we see this Federer at the US Open? No, and hopefully not at Cincinnati, I saw the whole match and was very, very surprised, I could only see Murray beating Federer on a hard-court, but with losses like this, it just gives every other player confidence that Federer is beat-able.

Serenidad
08-14-2009, 11:55 PM
He did choke. He was serving great until it was time to close it out. One Tsonga pegged him back the errors came and the first serve went AWOL. That is tightness and choking.

You're delusional. Apparently Federer can do no wrong in your eyes.

I guess Rome F against Nadal wasn't a choke either. Federer just missed routine FHs to prolong the match for legacy purposes.

Roger won his 2 Grand Slam titles this year fair and beat the players who had a great run at the tournaments and were the deserved finalists there. He was lucky that he survived some of the matches which he played on the way to his titles, but that's part of the game, as well as experiences, which helped him also to come through.

Rome Final was a choke on the same kind of level, cannot believe Federer choked in that match.. He also was 4-0 up against Nadal in Hamburg 2008 and lost the set.

But never has he lost like this, he just didn't know how to "close" the match, his serve vanished, and that's slightly worrying, he'll reach the F of the US Open unless he injures himself, but he must shake this loss aside.

That 21 match streak gave him confidence (I hope), but losses like this are astounding, his HC game outside the Aussie Open or the US Open just aren't the level they used to be.

because you said that and quoted me, I won't go away even if he lost in the first round, now let's see how you'll force me to go away :retard:

Figured you'd cop out maybe you are more scared of Murray than Frauderror.

actually i agree..good result for tennis

it is pretty much open right now.. i mean.. i missed the day any top ten could beat any top ten (like in 2003..for e.g.)

i think it is turning back to that period at times :p which is awesome!!

im excited to see what will happen next :bounce:

He needs to win this title (Tsonga) for him to have any chance of him being a contender for US Open, otherwise he'll get beaten by Murray, Soderling, Blake, Gasquet, Nadal, etc, all players who can beat him when he doesn't have 100% confidence (which he usually doesn't have).

Q. How difficult a player is he? You played him before, but what are the real challenges for you? Is it streakiness?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, if I look at this match, I guess so, but I think he can do better than that, you know. I don't think he's just a streaky player; otherwise he wouldn't be top 10 in the world.
He's got a wonderful serve. His first serve is great. It's hard to read. It's got great pace. He's a great athlete, you know. He's got a good forehand too, and that makes him a dangerous player.
I definitely think he's got, you know, much more potential to find in his game to even become a better player, but he's done very well already thus far, and I'm sure we'll see him much more in the future.


Classy comments by Federer there
