Fed was horrible in the first set but then stepped it up in the 2nd. Was in exo mode throughout.

Harrison faced too much pressure from the home crowd and was too inexperienced. Olderer got through the match by luck, serve and intimidation.

Expected win for Roger. Fed won at about 50%, but Harrison is really, really good to just be 18.

FEDERER let some 18 year old un-seeded nobody take him to a tie-break.

He's completely done crapping out errors left and right. He is a disgrace to Tennis. Harrison had this one in the bag if he didn't choke.

I watched a different match - I thought Harrison did very well under the circumstances and had moments when he troubled Fed, especially attacking his 2nd serve. Next time he plays Fed I wouldn't bet on the outcome - I think he can hold his 18 year old head very high!!

should have been a lot easier, shoulda pummelled the kid, but Fed getting nervous (against an 18-year-old with little firepower, wtf??) with a first-time opponent and with no discernible serve, movement or mental discipline, made the first set tight (and terrible). 2nd set was slightly more comfy and predictable. Rog, work out whatever you need to, that was lame and it shouldn't have been :rolleyes:

Fed could only be risking his history if you truly believe people don't get old and fall from the top of their game. I think most of us realize that that's par for the course. His history and achievements will not fade away because he loses matches at 29+ onwards.

(In the meantime, I hope YOU find the fountain of eternal youth)

Good 2nd set from Roger. Some bad moments in the 1st set though. Must have been the fact that this is his first match in the night session. Deiffrent wind condion, different temperature, slower court.

Are there any 18 year olds that are seeded in Master's Series events? Even Federer wasn't top 32 before his 19th birthday. Nadal is the only player in the last decade that I can think of to have a top 32 ranking before his 19th birthday.

The end of that first set was a complete disaster from Roger. The second set was pretty good. It's hard to take much from this given the situation, but Ryan did a good job competing. He still has quite a ways to go to be a legit threat to top players but he's certainly proven he belongs on this level.

And some of those balls he didn't try too hard at all.
Harrison is very good for his age though.

Fed will be ready for the next match no doubt.
Fed didn't want to beat the kid down, he knows it would be abuse of power.

So don't use this match as an indicator of Fed's form. :wavey:

yes. but so what. the guy really has nothing to left prove. and you don't get remembered for your h2hs with rising players while you are in the twilight of your career.

it's really now about trying to push the bar a little bit higher for the up-comers... a gold medal in singles at the olympics perhaps, and that's it.

the only player who can jeopardise any of his records in the next decade is Nadal, and perhaps Djokovic if he turns into a total machine and starts winning on clay and grass.

you can call him anything you want. he's still the best ever, or a top 3 of all time (for the relativists :)

Fed haters throwing abuse at Harrison :rolleyes: Kid is pretty good, and regardless of what are or are not his technical weapons, he possesses the ability to focus, fight and keep his cool. So many clowns who've been on the tour for 5 or 6 years still tense up or get scared and just mentally check out. Harrison realized he had nothing to lose, no pressure in this match, and he just flat out went for it. It's always tough to play against someone like that, especially when you are playing them for the first time.

Roger needs to be more consistent on his serve for sure, and put things away properly.

barbadosan
03-17-2011, 07:34 AM
Harrison can certainly hold his head up high. Win, lose or draw, it was obvious he came out to give it his best shot - and in the end, that's the most anyone can ask. Hope he continues to do well

Awful from Fed.

Serve has disappeared since last year. It was utter shit at the AO too.

Return of serve has regressed back to the horse shit it was before Annacone.

Can't win a baseline rally to save his life, after a long rally he gets frustrated and hits a shot to the 3rd row of the stands.

http://www.bnpparibasopen.com/News/Tennis/2011/Tournament/ATP-Wednesday-Nadal-Federer-Tested.aspx

In the second match of Wednesday’s blockbuster night session, World No. 2 and three-time champion Federer overcame Harrison 7-6(4), 6-3. Harrison, who dropped serve in the first game, twice prevented the Swiss from serving out the first set. The 18 year old later forced Federer to close out the match on serve after facing down three match points.

“I kind of struggled kind of sort of in that first set because I knew that lead wasn't real because it was more because of his nerves, so I think that's what made the whole match be a bit tricky for me early on,” said Federer. “When I won the first set and I felt like I played a tough breaker, got out of some tough situations, is when I felt like, You know what? Now I can play more freely. That’s how I played in the second set.

“I thought he played really well under the circumstances. It's not easy coming out playing a night session against a top player, and I thought he did really well. He competed great. Believed in his chances. That's exactly what he's supposed to do. But he bounced back after a tough first game, and that was impressive to see.”

Harrison looked ahead to future meetings with Federer: “Hopefully it was the first of a thousand,” he said. “I'm not trying to be the guy who played one match against Federer that was a tight match, and I played well. He played well. There was a couple points here and there that made a difference. But I'm not planning certainly on this being the highlight of my career.”

Spot on (as usual) Roger :yeah:

Ryan had a great tournament and is continuing to improve. I was really impressed by him against Raonic, who hits big but is prone to errors.

I have a feeling Indian Wells might suit Ryan's game more than Miami, but we'll see.

I really liked what I saw from Harrison, especially his attitude to bring it on, on the court.

However, Roger was really MIA. He looked really relaxed and unfocused while he had a break, and when he lost it, he got his gears back to break again, to be back to relaxed mode.

Harrison is getting better
Federer is getting older

Harrison need to gain experience and He got power but no angel....
And the most Harrison need is a GReat Coach....
Team USA, Please Go get him a great Coach. Harrison is going to be better than Andy Roddick soon.
He soon would be the Best American. deserve the best coach.

And GOod News, Harrison is not Donald Young.

Fed has to show "frustrations" to make it look real. But once he decided to end the match it just did. some MTF people really...

Having seen the way Gulbis and Troicki this week have really failed to perform it was impressive to see a player who rose to the occasion rather than mentally disintegrated to a 6-0, 6-1 defeat which belongs on the WTA.

Yeah, i agree, I think there were a few time when Fed was kind of letting the kid get in some shots. Then, I think Ryan started playing better and Fed was thinking he better start playing again.

It's strange to see and hear Roger looking exasperated-

Roger Federer to Self: Come On, Man! (http://gototennis.com/2011/03/17/roger-federer-to-self-come-on-man/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+gototennis+%28GOTOTENNIS.com% 29)

Fed was clearly very nervous : I think he doesn't like this situation where he finds himself in the position of Sampras against him in Wimbledon 2001.

He's not used to being the "bad guy" here against the young exciting and talented player.

it also probably reminded him of Gasquet 2005 ... except that Gasquet (who was the same age as Harrison now) won.

Federer has played crap since Simon match in AO. It's not looking good at all.

Picking on the kids name, seriously?

Happy to see Harrison kept the scoreline close even if it was more of Federer allowing him to do so.

Seriously "Ryan Harrison". Can a name get anymore fucking boring than that? Just from the name you'll know this dude wouldn't get far. Can you imagine a world number one name "RYAN HARRISON"? Even if he wins 100 grand slams and statistically become the GOAT he won't be remembered just because of such a boring name.

This has to be the most trite post I've ever seen on MTF. I'll bet you any amount of money that you want that there are far more "Carlos Moya's" proportionately in the Spanish speaking world than "Ryan Harrison's" in the English speaking world. Just because you never leave Australia it might be appealing to you to see more foreign-sounding names, but you'd find that a lot of those names are unbelievably common in these players' home countries as well.

Quite frankly, this is the stupidest fucking post I've ever seen on MTF. Rather than talking about players strengths and weaknesses, we've devolved into talking about who has the cutest name or who wears clothes that match the best. Go back to the male bulges thread, you'll be far more happy there.

I know. That has to be the gayest post in MTF history :lol:

I guess he wants all players in the English speaking world to name their kids crazy stuff like in Hollywood...

Spot on, when you think about it, no one knows who's Jimmy Connors :silly:

No need to insult the gay population. Forehander is special. He's hardly representative of any sexual orientation group, nationality, race or whatever other grouping one might decide on.

Good Run Ryan Harrison
People who think Ryan will not be good because of his name should not be on a Tennis site :lol:

Playing Fed, Rafa or even Djoker now is very intimidating especially first time and Ryan Harrison played well under those circumstances. If it was against any other player he would have probably won a set atleast :shrug:. Props to him.

you guys are making me laugh. Federer can't completely demolish the american kid in front of the american crowd. he was dramatic to show the crowd this harrison has talent and that he was having trouble. He is also being good to the kid. Die hard fed fans may not like it but for casual spectators they just don't want to see a man bully a young and up and coming talent in the home crowd. it's all drama. Fed has to show "frustrations" to make it look real. But once he decided to end the match it just did. some MTF people really...

Wow, talk about delusional. Embarrassing, really.

Anyone notice Harrison's service motion? His serve is fine, but he finishes almost entirely bent over. It takes him about 5 seconds to recover.

Haha I was thinking that 5 secs is AGES in tennis. But I get your point :yeah:

I also noticed that. Anytime a return was hit deep he had no chance.
