Federer Pressing...WHY?(NO LONGER), uhh sorry-Yes he Is. One Demensional My Ass!!

I love Nadal, don't get me wrong, and I want him to win. It's still pretty early but why is Fed pressing so hard? He's actually playing Nadal's game and not his own. It sucks. and it makes me sad.

I want a DOG FIGHT, but Its still early.

Pressing again...

He should have learned something form Gaudio's start, the way he started, attacking Nadal's backhand all the time really worked out well for him

it's as if Nadal's toying with him. i don't know what to say, I can't concieve of a 6-0 set for Fed. And now Rafa's bursting with confidence in this match EARLY.

Tjaaa...Roger, you talked the talk..now you gotta back it up. Seems that it is that, what's getting to him. When a guy owns you, you shouldn't be calling him one-dimensional...

Man I got up this morning to an 0-4 Fed start. That will remind him to shut up about an opponent and actually concentrate on beating him. This might actually be Fed's first straight set loss after RG '04.

I think he's putting too much thought into Andreev's win against Nadal on clay.
Andreev when he's on his game has as much action on the ball as Nadal if not just a little more.
Federer probably thinks giving Nadal a dose of his own medicine is the way to go with this match.
It's not going to work.
He needs to keep the pressure up on Nadal's backhand and hit every shot in his arsenal at it until he can find an opening to net.

we were all talking yesterday about players playing so poorly against nadal, and nadal-fanatics were shocked & saying how can that be said? fed had 12 UNforced errors in the first 3 games with NO long rallies to justify it and got his FIRST forced error not until game 4.

i've never seen him so tight, or play worse, but THAT clearly at least is the fear the aura of nadal puts in people, apparently. he sure doesnt back it up that often however. he's played about five really impressive points this match and that alone earned him a 6-2 first set. :confused:

i think federer will see through it and vanquish his fear soon. i would STILL bet fed in 4.

I like Nadal
he has a lot of heart, & donest come accross as in ur face player
just a determined passionate player,
who is handling himself with maturity & humility
why so many seem to hate him
is beyond me
just makes me like him even more
At least he is stepping up to Federer & not rolling over & white washing him all the way
ATP needs rivalries even from the most unlikely pairing

U must have missed all of last year and the beginning of this one. Welcome back from ur coma! U don't win the FO, 4 MS and 6 titles if u dont "back up" ur aura of fear. Give credit where credit is due. U might not like Rafa but he's a champ and if u can't see that then ur hating for the sake of hating.

nadal is a GREAT player. buthes not in great form this year, having lost 3 times already and probably today.

Unfortunately, there's a lot of "haters" who post on MTF... I'm glad that I don't feel any need to hate a tennis player or generate hatred toward a tennis player, especially for silly reasons... I can enjoy watching the tennis for what it is! :) It is nice that this match featured some fighting spirit from both players... Congrats to Rafa! :)
