Very shaky start (after he mugged a break) from Fedclown but I'm glad he got it done in 2

Sloppy to give the break away in the first but overall Solid in cold and rough conditions.

w is a w. but matches like this aren't bring anything good for fed. luckily clown of highest order was on the other side of the net. any better player and fed would be in trouble

Good job, Roger. Another hard-thought victory on the way to greatest tennis title of all times which Olympic singles gold.

I hope his FH remains positive and strong, even if he makes a mistake here or there. The British weather wants an indoor final and Roger likes it.

Rain delay at 5-5 really helped Fed, overall shaky groundstrokes still most importantly got through in 2.

Good fight in the first set from Istomin. You always feel that his talent just goes unused though.

Thanks. Unfortunately i don't have a laptop yet, so can't really watch. Be kind and keep us unfortunate beings posted.

a respectable grass court season for istocir, and i expect some breakthru’s during the hc campaign.

give the gold to fed already.....

if Isto broke at 5-5 on 1st set Fed would have been out of this

only played at 10% today

Probably funnier than someone who cheers and worships Rosol just after his win against Shitdal.

Oh, Frauderer :yeah:
Istomino :hug: Back on track at least.

I only watched the SB, so correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Istomin get to three BPs directly after that rain break? I'd rather say Istomin didn't manage to capitalize on his advantage there than that Fed was aided by that rain break, but well - as I said, I didn't watch the match. :)

Shaky stuff apparently from Feds, but a win = a win. :)

Tennis has been dead since NAdal won his first ATP match.

Does Istomin use an eastern or mild semiwestern grip?

Yeah Fed came out with a spectacular FH shank after the delay to give 15-40 but managed to bail himself out with his serve.
