2nd set was more of a mixed bag with good play and bad play.

Federer's forehand was quite good today. Also he's just one TMS event away to reach the Agassi record.

Federer will win the USO in my opinion, if he plays at this level and he can even play better than that. :)

15 GS > 1 slam wonder. :p

Bad game plan from Djokovic in the first set, engaging in the FH CC rallies, and with this kind of a sitting FH from Federer he doesn't have much of a chance. A little bit better in the second, forcing BH CC rallies and then exposing running forehand from Federer on the open court. Both had lots of chances to take that second set, but Roger was more focused and too strong to let this one go.

There's always been a clear favorite. I just wonder if the media wants to create some buzz. Roger has to an opponent--somebody who can challenge him, ya know?

Anyway.. Congrats to the GOAT.. Nole was no match for Roger today.

And Nole I won't be nicknaming him dropshot that's for sure!

But.. he did his best... Roger was just Roger today.

Congrats to Nole for getting to the final!

You know. I really didn't care that Roger lost to Tsonga but I just wouldn't be able to take it if he lost to #1 Murray and future #1 Novak (according to Reed). I am glad he beat both of them but his record against Murray is still dismal. I really don't care if Roger never wins another slam but he needs to set the record straight with the other top 3 guys. His record against Novak is OK but Nadal and Murray lead him like 19 to 10. So he's got ways to go to fix that. I thought Roger was gonna choke that second set. Glad I was wrong. Novak did and Novak will not beat Andy Roddick anytime soon.

1st set: Federer played unbelievably well; great shot making, very few errors. Djokovic was in a fight from the start, too many errors (relative to Fed), too tentative on his shots. Poor service games which plagued him until the end.

2nd set: Fed level dips slightly, Djoko starts going for his shots a bit, but after 3-0 it was all Fed again.

Djoko actually did well to hang in there given his 80 mph second serves. At some point he was winning only 22% of second serves. First serve wasn't anything to write home about either. He just never went for his shots.

JesusFed.

Federer has now won 4 of the last 5 tournaments he has played in (Madrid, French Open, Wimbledon, and Cincinnati).

This victory is important because it makes it virtually impossible for Murray to pass Federer for #1 by winning the US Open. Federer would have to lose really early.

08-23-2009, 07:23 PM
I missed the first three games, but when I started watching at 3-0, Djokovic was serving a ton to Fed's FH and rightly getting punished for it. Poor tactics on his part. Fed is still not 100% where he should be (still missing BH passes, 1st serves way too low), but as was the case with the Murray match, he is showing good signs compared to where he was last year. Hopefully he irons out the few details and puts together a nice USO.

16th TMS, only one more to tie Andre (though Rafa will eventually pass him on this), and more points to preserve the #1 and approach Sampras. Well done!

Way to go king Fed, awesome display, forehand was amazing today. Djoko did well in the tournament and played well in spurts, but no shame in losing to someone so great playing so well, I think he is back to form at the right time and has a better chance than people may think at the USO. Fed is the favourite for the USO title now by a mile, I can only hope his form somehow dips by then. :D

Federer is gonna win the US OPEN for sure.

Nothing is for sure in life especially not in tennis, but he is looking good to at least or at most keep his sf streak at slams alive. (Barring a major upset or some freak injury) ;)

Federer still needs to sharpen out his game, he's not quite driving on cruise control all the time just yet.

08-23-2009, 07:29 PM
Both Djokovic and Murray paid the price for playing into Federer's forehand way too much. Federer's forehand has been back in the groove since the French, Murray and Djokovic clearly haven't done their homework.

If Federer doesn't win the US Open it will be one of the biggest shocks in tennis history.

Fed's first serve percentage has been more than terrible here in Cincy, and today as well. However he still managed to overpower Djoker in the baseline game. If he just tries to pick up his serve a bit more, I don't think anyone would stand in his way to the 16th GS.

Congrats on #16 (and #61 in total, correct me if I'm wrong), Feds! :hatoff:
What a happy plonker he must be right now. Wife & kids doing fine, back-on-track with the job, happy, relaxed. King-of-the-Hill, vamos in New York! :D

Like many said already, 1st set was close to vintage Fed. Close, not yet there (if it's at all possible in the first place to get back to that level again) - he'll have to do something about that :o-1st serve percentage for sure just to name something obvious. 2nd set showed the expected dip in form, but never too bad to allow himself to get in any real danger.

As for Djokovic - on the hook from the first minute the match started off. Too many UEs, and imho, wrong tactics at times as well - too defensive. Which kind of surprised me as his aggressive game worked very well yesterday against Nadal, why not continue playing that way?
Guess his opponent of today had something to do with that. :)

Singularity
08-23-2009, 07:37 PM
Great to see Federer back to his best in that first set. Everything was working: forehand, backhand, return, serve. Finally Federer was making that running forehand out wide, and was able to be super aggressive on the return: two elements that have been missing from his game for a while.

His form dropped in the early part of the second set, but he eventually picked things up and played some fantastic points to break. Though errors started to creep into his game a little, which I suppose is an indication of the fact that he's past his peak, and will find it increasingly difficult to maintain his past intensity.

Still, he should be in great shape for the USO.

It's very unusual to start at 12:30 after having a late night semi final and a tough one against Nadal . I bet it never happened before in a big tournament. Nole had no time to rest let alone to think about the match and it showed. Federer had a huge physical advantage. If they must start early then they must play semis at the same time or right after or schedule the final later in the day

Djoker played crap for the whole match making it easy for Fed. There are still too many errors in Fed's game.

I could see it in Novak's eyes today. Today was the day he finally accepted Federer into his heart. During the trophy presentation, you could see with his body language he was declaring to the world that Federer is the one true God of tennis. You could tell that Novak felt humbled to even be allowed to play on the same tennis court as Federer, let alone be in his glorious presence. As Federer played you could see Angels surrounding him and singing him praises. A Halo of golden love imbued light could be seen surrounding the man who unites Heaven and Earth.

I for one am seeing Novak in a new light. I am glad he was grown up and thrown away his childish notions of ever being the King. Novak has finally accepted Federer as his savior and he should be praised for that. Without Federer, Novak would be lost, but now he is saved.

We love you God Federer, show us all the way. <3

I for one am seeing Novak in a new light. I am glad he was grown up and thrown away his childish notions of ever being the King. Novak has finally accepted Federer as his savior and he should be praised for that. Without Federer, Novak would be lost, but now he is saved.

We love you God Federer, show us all the way. <3

there was lots of running and it's Nadal, wasn't easy like the score suggests at all.

You're leaving Nole like a physically handicapped player

If he can't rest more than 14 hours, he plays like crap, if he plays on daylight in the AO during a common summer day and the roof isn't closed for him... he will lose, if in Wimbledon rains too much and screws the schedule... he will lose too.

is that a real champion material?

It's very unusual to start at 12:30 after having a late night semi final and a tough one against Nadal . I bet it never happened before in a big tournament. Nole had no time to rest let alone to think about the match and it showed. Federer had a huge physical advantage. If they must start early then they must play semis at the same time or right after or schedule the final later in the day

I dont´t remember this to be a "late night" semi. At least on tv I didn´t see any star.....

Bitter fakervic fans making excuses. He was routed, he was fine physically. He was mentally fried, and in the first-set he was dominated.

Djok when to the Federer forehand too often, he got burned. His attack on the Federer backhand never worked because the balls were not high or deep enough.

Everybody's been saying (and it's also true) that Roger's play has been scratchy since 2006. He peaked in 04-05. After that, it was up and down but he's collected 9 more slams. The other guys are at least 5 years younger than him and I think it's natural they could have higher win-loss record. But when it matters, Roger delivers. When there is opportunity, he grabs it.

He has managed to win even though he's not playing at his best and may be that's what so special about him (others win when they are at their best). His fitness and stamina is also amazing.

And I don't think being a married guy and a father wouldn't put a dent in his level of play and concentration. If the twins say Papa...bring it home and it would be such a motivation hee hee .....
Bad news for other guys. Only old age/injury will slow him down.

Federer's SF match started at 2PM and today's Final started at 12:30, that is almost the same time of day so no issues . Djokovic on the other hand played at 7PM and finnished just before 9PM in a tension filled match, I was tired just watching it.

08-23-2009, 08:27 PM
Despite this loss, it was a good week for Djokovic since he beat Nadal.

As for the match:

1. For some reason, Djokovic served almost exclusively to the Federer FH in the first set. Was it supposed to be a surprise tactic? In the 2nd game of the match (which went to 6 or 7 deuces), Djokovic served almost every time to the Federer FH in the deuce court, and more than half in the Ad court. It didn't make any sense, because Federer's FH return is very good and he can almost always put the server on the defensive with a deep return. Unless you're going to angle it off better, you can't serve to his FH like that if you want to win. Federer grew confident in his returns and was aggressive throughout most of the match, although he did a lot of slice chip returns in the second set.

1a. On that note, Novak's serve hasn't been the same this year. When he was coming up in 2006 and 2007, he held serve more easily against good opponents. He could get it up to 122-128 and near the lines. He sometimes gets that pace, but more often than not, it has been weaker serves and not all that well placed.

2. Federer's Bh was really good today. He was hitting the CC slice deep and it kept Djokovic from attacking. Federer was also hitting his topspin BH deep to the middle of the court and to Djokovic's BH. There were often loopy, but they did the trick. He was trying to do this against Murray as well, but made a lot more mistakes. He still doesn't have the BH dtl working at all; if he does get it to work at the USO, it will make the rallies a lot easier for him.

3. Federer's timing on his Fh was impeccable. He was sitting right on the baseline and taking the ball early. Novak kept retreating further and further behind the baseline because he was worried about that early FH going down the line. You also saw hints of Federer's once punishing CC FH against both Murray and Djokovic. He dominated the FH exchanges and didn't give Novak any chance to get into rallies.

4. Federer's serve was not that great again, but he still only faced a break point in one service game out of 30 against Hewitt, Murray, and Djokovic. That's pretty good stuff. His second serve was really good all week. Djokovic didn't read his serve as well as he has lately and generally had no idea where it was going.

So why did you mention it? Most of Djoker's victories are when Federer plays poorly. Today, in the first set, Novak didn't get an opportunity to play well period. In the second set, he was decent but clearly not good enough.

Federer had an unfair advantage and Nole couldn't run much after last night's match. It makes no sense to play so early after playing so late. The same thing happened at last year US open :(

It's very unusual to start at 12:30 after having a late night semi final and a tough one against Nadal . I bet it never happened before in a big tournament. Nole had no time to rest let alone to think about the match and it showed. Federer had a huge physical advantage. If they must start early then they must play semis at the same time or right after or schedule the final later in the day

Federer was exceptionally sharp out there and Djokovic was labored and messy.

Though Federer's renewed dominance does nothing for me as a fan of him because I find him more annoying than not ("Applause please"), his play today was a superb display for anyone who loves tennis. He has to be the big favorite going into the USO.

Federer's definitely onto a new chapter. With the weight off his shoulders he looks on another, higher level than the rest of the tour. He's hitting the forehand with vicious authority.

Yeah, scheduling worked against Novak and the day semi- winner is almost always a big favorite in a final. But Federer made Novak look pedestrian out there. He easily controlled the majority of the points, including on Novak's serve.

thanks for discounting the madrid event this year which he won by beating a limping rafa.......

My impression is that Federer fans care a lot more than Nadal or other player's fans about bean (or trophy) counting. Makes sense, I guess. I would never have thought about # of Masters titles if it wasn't getting brought up constantly.

So, shut your freakin' mouths ....

So why did you mention it? Most of Djoker's victories are when Federer plays poorly. Today, in the first set, Novak didn't get an opportunity to play well period. In the second set, he was decent but clearly not good enough.




because, i don't understand this crap of "he is back" when he wins and "he is past his prime" or "bad match" or something else when he loses fair and square.......

btw what you fail to see is djokovic played bad and still won and when he played his best against an in form fed, even then he won - montreal 07 and AO 08.......roddick or hewitt even on their best days and federer's worst days, cannot seem to find a way to beat federer.......

As usual tournament organizers conspire to keep Nole down, and create ideal playing conditions for Federer. I've lost count of the number of crappy draws Noles has had - evening match followed by day match. Never happens to frauderer.

Nole was clearly tired today and made to many UE's. It was his match to lose.

Conspiracy. Of course. As usual.

Maybe they should allow Nole to play in a wheelchair from now on, playing sitting down would be less tiring.

4. Federer's serve was not that great again, but he still only faced a break point in one service game out of 30 against Hewitt, Murray, and Djokovic. That's pretty good stuff. His second serve was really good all week. Djokovic didn't read his serve as well as he has lately and generally had no idea where it was going.
Actually 2, when he got broken in his 1st service game of the second and at 5-4* when it was SP for Djokovic. He served better on big points but still shitty %

That match was quite an interesting one. Rafa was not limping, his movement was fine, rather, his serve was WEAK, and his forehand was not firing. Also Roger changed tactics big times during that match, tactics that he never used before imo.

Got to hand it to people and the haters, he won today because he played really well. Both served poorly, but both players forehands were firing.

I could see it in Novak's eyes today. Today was the day he finally accepted Federer into his heart. During the trophy presentation, you could see with his body language he was declaring to the world that Federer is the one true God of tennis. You could tell that Novak felt humbled to even be allowed to play on the same tennis court as Federer, let alone be in his glorious presence. As Federer played you could see Angels surrounding him and singing him praises. A Halo of golden love imbued light could be seen surrounding the man who unites Heaven and Earth.

I for one am seeing Novak in a new light. I am glad he was grown up and thrown away his childish notions of ever being the King. Novak has finally accepted Federer as his savior and he should be praised for that. Without Federer, Novak would be lost, but now he is saved.

We love you God Federer, show us all the way. <3

no, but it's obvious that if he played the big guns the way he played last year and well in his last two matches and especially the first set here, it's hard to imagine anyone capable of beating him no matter how well they play, it's that simple, he is not the GOAT for nothing.

MTF has convinced me.

It's now evidently clear that Novak lost today purely because of an evil conspiracy that directly comes from the top of the organization of the ITF and the ATP. Needless to say, this conspiracy was started (and is currently run) by the evil Roger Federer himself. As every rational MTF poster knows by now, he's the one who cooks up the schedule at all the tourneys he plays to the point that in Cincy he had the audacity to order him having 3 more hours than the other semifinalist. It's obvious now that this is what made him win tonight against Djokovic. All in all, in spite of what the conspiracy naysayers say, his tennis has nothing to do with it given that those extra 3 hours were absolutely crucial for his victory today.

It's so obvious that I don't really know how others don't believe it. Delusional fanboys is what they are.

This is even bigger crap than Novak's performance :haha:

Fed was back to his Jesus mode, forehand was rocking and serving was impressive when it mattered the most. Well deserved :hatoff:
Novak's tactic was atrocious, playing again and again on Roger's forehand. Serve has completely gone, didn't make a single first serve in the 5th game of the 2nd set when he got broken. Pathetic... So many ups and downs. Though it has been a good week, better than I expected really.
But again I haven't seen a single reason this week to believe that Novak could actually beat Roddick or Federer in New York. He always has at least 1 bad game on his serve in the set. Novak should be praying not to bump into Andy in the quarters. Otherwise, he's going to be humiliated once again :o

Federer IS a great clay courter, but Nadal IS better on clay. Nadal is one of the top 2 clay courters of all time.

The fact that Federer has beaten Nadal twice on clay, despite how good Nadal is on clay and the fact that Nadal is a terrible individual matchup, is just a testament to how good he is on that surface.

Nadal has only lost 6 matches on clay since 2006.

1. 2005 Buenos Aires to Gaudio
2. 2005 Valencia to Andreev
3. 2007 Hamburg Masters to Federer
4. 2008 Rome to Ferrero

If one is interested in a convincing argument in favour of the one-handed backhand, watch this match.

Roger's one-hander allows him to get to balls and in rhythm. He can get a ball further away from him than a player with a two-hander and still maintain his balance. His great footwork doesn't hurt either.

Now watch Djokovic's backhand. He gets a ball a bit too close to his body or a bit out of reach and it takes him that much longer to set up.

It is just like in a pack of dogs. The young, energetic, loud and annoying male will be to be put in his place by the alpha dog.

Hmmm.. well yeah.. I get the analogy.

Nole has been talking shit lately? Really? To me Nole has looked pretty tame--introspective even--nearly like a professor or something?!

Are there people writing articles about him being the "real #1, " too? :lol:

The scheduling against Djoker clearly made Fed's forehand that good today. :eek:

Novak was never winning this match, not for one second even before they even stepped on court.

Congrats, Roger.

I wish we could just skip Pilot Pen and fast-forward a week to the US Open. :(

Ouch. Nole got spanked.

Time to be a prick, Joker. It's the only way to focus on kicking the Top 6's asses. New York may hate you, but they'll respect the shit out of your game.

I take back my "Murray is the true favorite."

I could see it in Novak's eyes today. Today was the day he finally accepted Federer into his heart. During the trophy presentation, you could see with his body language he was declaring to the world that Federer is the one true God of tennis. You could tell that Novak felt humbled to even be allowed to play on the same tennis court as Federer, let alone be in his glorious presence. As Federer played you could see Angels surrounding him and singing him praises. A Halo of golden love imbued light could be seen surrounding the man who unites Heaven and Earth.

I for one am seeing Novak in a new light. I am glad he was grown up and thrown away his childish notions of ever being the King. Novak has finally accepted Federer as his savior and he should be praised for that. Without Federer, Novak would be lost, but now he is saved.

We love you God Federer, show us all the way. <3

the one hander is less taxing in general in my opinion... maybe not on the shoulder, but when the body as a whole is taken into account then yeah...

Who would have expected the last two excellent performances against Murray and Djokovic after the struggle against Ferrer earlier in the tournament?

Well there ya go. Novak is too young to say that!

How old is he?

All credit to Roger, the GOAT.. But geez guys.. this kind of talk it's like Nole has no control--it's destiny dealing him a bad hand.

Now.. if this were Roddick talking? I might be inclined to agree. HOWEVER, I just don't think Roddick ever had the talent of say a Andre Agassi to compete with Roger. So it's not that Roger is GOAT, is more Andy is not somebody like Andre, able to compete better with Roger as compared to Andre and Pete's rivalry. That's not to say Andy isn't good or doesn't deserve to be successful. It's just he's not as talented as Andre. But what I like about Andy is he keeps trying, and I think he might believe he has a shot if can get into the final, playing Roger on one of his rare off-days. Or Andy maybe just plays out of his mind, beyond his capabilities.. It can happen..

But Nole DOES have the talent. Nole?? Oh my...Nole has a better game than Roddick, so why is he talking like that?

Bummer.

Well, at least "Fakervic" was able to take advantage of the situation just like Roger has been able to take advantage of Rafa's tendonitis.

What's the difference, really? Both Roger and Nole had to come-up with the goods in spite of their opponents' illness or injury. They still had to win. Both of them could have blown their opportunities, but they didn't. :shrug:

I do agree with you though, "Fakervic's" attitude needs an adjustment because all the talent in the world isn't going to matter. And even players--believing they CAN win with LESS talent but better attitudes will have more success.

The problem is nadull always had tendonitis he beat roger with tendonitis & roger beat him with tendonitis. Where-as mono was a one-off time,that fakervic was in the right place at the right time,also he never met/beat fed at a slam since.Which is different from nadal. If you discount nadaull tendonitis then you have to discount all his victories & defeats against every-one because he has been playing with tenonitis for years.:)
