Troicki will be another one of those guys who stretched Federer in a 1st round of some tourney and disappeared forever.

Wow...Federer has had the toughest match so far of any player...I'm a little surprised it wasn't easier. Did anyone watch the match? Was Fed a bit off?

But a win is a win...wonder what he'll have to say about it in his blog?

When I see how tight his first round victories often are, i really think it is incredible he never lost one for the last copple of years!

A bit of a close one even though it was in straight sets.

I wonder if he was still thinking about his super awesome space age toilet?:devil:

tursunov's getting whipped as we speak, he's down 0-3 in the third.

c'mon, he didn't play a single match since US Open final. What did you expect him to do? He wanted to get some practice :)

Looks like it was a tight match. Never heard of this Troicki guy until now. I suppose Federer just does enough to get through sometimes.

"It was a really tough match," said Federer. "I didn't know his game. I've never seen him play and it always takes time to figure a player out...This was my first match of the tournament so I wanted to play it safe and get a rhythm." (from Yahoo)

That probably says it well enough. :p

Congrats, Roger.

Viktor!!!! You won 10 more games than I thought you would! :bounce: :lol: It was his first time in the main draw of an event and I'm glad he gave it his all :) Maybe he should have been on the Davis Cup team. :tape:

Disappointing indeed, Viktor tried the best he could to show his unique fashion sense by wearing the yellow.
