There is just something wrong when bagels are served up in a final. Gonzo had his chance to take Fed to a tiebreak in the first set but didn't and that was the match.

I'm very sad :sad:

Gonzo was totally out of gas after the first set, reaching 2 finals in a row, for other side I expected more fight from Gonzo, he really dissapointed me from that side :o

The elbow thing was another factor, but Roger is Roger after all, congrats to him :)

10-22-2006, 04:43 PM
Ridiculous!!! And before people come up with excuses for Gonzo, FYI, Federer rolled his ankle by the end of the first set, and had it retaped after it was over. Gonzo had A WHOLE SET to level things up, while Fed's movement was a bit doubtful, but Fed turned on the heat and spanked him 6-1. No excuses there.

Adding to Escude's stats:

-17th bagel of the season (yet to count the breadticks)
-leads Gonzo 8-0 (watch out Roddick, you've got competition)

Congrats Federer for a fabulous tournament, and once again, a master-class performance. 2 things left: FO & Olympic gold medal. (since this is his first INDOOR AMS)

Roger, after the first set, was merciless...All credit to Federer...But, as I've stated previously, it just seems that when players lose the first set against Roger, especially in a five set match, they no longer compete...

In order to compete with Roger, what to say of defeating him, one has to believe...stick to one's strategy...and fight...This does not mean victory...but at least the scoreline might be better..

Gonzo played smartly and fought in the first set...and then, after he lost it after a WELL PLAYED GAME from Roger, he gave up...

Sad...but, other than Rafa, I feel that no one believes they can defeat him after losing the first set..

Who was the last player other than Rafa to defeat Roger after losing the first set?

WF4EVER
10-22-2006, 04:44 PM
Senor Tiriac, whom I think is the Tournament Director, just said to Roger during the trophy ceremony, that he is a gentleman on the court and a gentleman off the court and then said please stay like that. LOL. Nice and encouraging words.

Roger's technique and superior skills really shine in the indoors. His serve works so much better and he moved very nice at madrid. one of his best tourneys this season for sure. He is very relaxed after winning 3 GS and it is really a treat to watch him play with this much confidence.

10-22-2006, 04:56 PM
I hope that ankle is okay - it always seems to be this time of year when he's prone to pick up an injury and I'll bet he's got a little pain in it at least, it looked like a nasty fall and thank God he had it taped already.

Great result for him though - another 4 TMS wins year - I hope he can win Basel, make it 5 in Paris, win the TMC and then concentrate on the clay - the one black spot on his record this year is no clay tournament wins, 0-3 in finals.

I was not referring to anyone, that's why I said "BEFORE anyone tries to bring up excuses", because it wasn't brought up at all. :wavey:

Gonzo's had a good indoor season, 2 finals in a row is something to be proud of, and my gut tells me, if he does well in Basel and Paris, he'll probably surprise us all n' make it to Shanghai 2 years running. The scoreline is pretty harsh for Gonzo and his fans, but he got some revenge with the champagne thing. Lighten up, I think he'll make it to Shanghai;) :hug:

10-22-2006, 05:06 PM
Federer is too good.

With the very ocassional exception of Nadal truly being on fire and fighting like a madman, Federer is truly on a league of his own.

Great for him, being able to beat every opponent with such ease, and also great for his fans they get to see him beat everybody, but I can't help but say that in the overall aspect, this is not good for tennis excitment and spectacle.

With the exception of Nadal, Federer breases through every player. Tennis is no longer competitive in the sense of who will win Grand Slams, or Master Series. Federer is that Good.

But what can be done? Nothing. The only advice that one can give Federer's opponents is: don't be afraid, have balls, play like Federer's NOT in front of you. But hey, talking (or typing in this case :)) is easy.

Federer deserves all the praises he's recieving.

scoobs
10-22-2006, 05:07 PM
you think he's ok? i missed that part. I am concerned now :( I wanna hear what he says in the post-match interview.

My gut feeling is that any pain is minor and ice and a day or two's rest will be enough. By the third set he seemed to be moving well again and he was bouncing on his feet between points again so he wasn't avoiding putting undue pressure on it.

It is a good job it was well taped already though - it seems to have prevented the ankle from turning too much - and it also looked like he made sure he went down immediately to take the weight right off it.

A truly brilliant display of tennis being played the way it was intended. Roger handled a few key pressure moments throughout the earlier stages of the 1st set and towards the end of it as well, but ultimately was able to prevail. After that, his game became a lot more relaxed and the uncharacteristic mistakes began to disappear. Certainly a pity that Gonzalez was rendered all but helpless, though he has absolutely nothing to shame himself of.

As for the early portion of the week, Roger's matches were more closely contested than one would expect, but all in all he was able to scrape through his matches and claw his way into another Final, where of course nothing but his best tennis was on display.

Quite a beautiful work of art he's proving to be, also this year's final was quite a contrast in comparison to that of last year. A long grueling 5 set affair, full of strenuous rallies and often times unforced errors. Good to see high quality tennis, with a healthy ratio in winners to UFEs, great job.

Brilliant.

berdych shouldve been the one playing roge. if only he didnt goad the crowd at the end of his match w/ nadal, he wouldnt have been so pressured playing against fernie and then we couldve seen a real match :cool:

nalbandian didnt just beat roge at the tmscup, he wouldve beaten him at the semis of the french but uh...due to an "illness," had to retire. the scoreline at atptennis says he won the first and lost 2nd and about to lose 3rd at 2-5, but i seem to remember it being much closer than that.

about fed blowing out his opponents: the one thing they lack is belief. they buy into the type (and truth) that theyre playing the possibly greatest player of all time. but look at guys like nalbie who has a 6-6 rec w/ fed and nadal who doesn't fear anyone not named berdych. they go toe to toe w/ fed w/o fading away after disappointments. hewitt suffers from this, roddick and blake is just happy to get a set off fed and will fade away.

Roger played crap for the majority of the match. Gonzalez just sucks.
The first set was tight, but one quality game put Federer through.

The second set should have been closer, but luck was on Fed's side.
A shame he didn't double bagel.

I hope that ankle is okay - it always seems to be this time of year when he's prone to pick up an injury and I'll bet he's got a little pain in it at least, it looked like a nasty fall and thank God he had it taped already.

Great result for him though - another 4 TMS wins year - I hope he can win Basel, make it 5 in Paris, win the TMC and then concentrate on the clay - the one black spot on his record this year is no clay tournament wins, 0-3 in finals.

That, however, is largely a result of the fact that he hardly plays small tournaments. If he played some crappy clay tournaments, like Estoril, he would have won on clay this year too. In fact, he could win like five clay tournaments a year. He's basically as certain to win a clay tournament where Nadal doesn't play as he is to win a tournament on any other surface.

berdych shouldve been the one playing roge. if only he didnt goad the crowd at the end of his match w/ nadal, he wouldnt have been so pressured playing against fernie and then we couldve seen a real match :cool:

nalbandian didnt just beat roge at the tmscup, he wouldve beaten him at the semis of the french but uh...due to an "illness," had to retire. the scoreline at atptennis says he won the first and lost 2nd and about to lose 3rd at 2-5, but i seem to remember it being much closer than that.

about fed blowing out his opponents: the one thing they lack is belief. they buy into the type (and truth) that theyre playing the possibly greatest player of all time. but look at guys like nalbie who has a 6-6 rec w/ fed and nadal who doesn't fear anyone not named berdych. they go toe to toe w/ fed w/o fading away after disappointments. hewitt suffers from this, roddick and blake is just happy to get a set off fed and will fade away.


Berdych 3:1 Nadal

Nadal 6:2 Federer

-Berdych might have given Federer more of a battle but then again, he might not have. Federer has handled him quite easily this year.

-Nalbandian might have beaten Federer at Roland Garros but we don't know this for sure. If we look at Nalbandian's injury there, can't we also look at the heavy ankle brace that Federer was wearing in their TMC match?

-It's 7-6 Federer against Nalbandian, but 7-1 for Federer in the last 8 meetings.

-It's Federer's game that makes the players fade, the endless barrage of winners and the feeling that they can't place the ball in a safe place on the other side of the court. That wears on them.

Federer is 7-1 against Nalbandian since the beginning of 2004 (which is about when he reached his current level) and 7-6 in total, so basically, Nalbandian is Federer's bitch now. Proves what you said wrong. ;)

Berdych is 1-4 against Federer, not 0-7. I'd argue that Berdych was playing at a much higher level playing against nadal than Fernie simply for the fact that he was now playing against the spanish crowd as well. And of course Tomas can hold service easier and has a more solid backhand wing. I'll tell you that the last two sets wouldnt have been a breadstick and a bagel if Tomas had been playing and thats what i meant, savy?

Nalbandian was on his way to beating Fed at the FO semis but as usual, Dave is Dave and he chokes it usually in the semis. It's a legitimate win for Fed. But for about a set and a half, Dave was the better player and you could rewatch that match if you'd like. At Shanghai last year, Fed was coming off an ankle injury but had about a month off to recover. The ankle brace was a preventative measure in the same way tape is. He no doubt was not a hundred percent but let's not forget that Fed double bagled Gaudio in the semis before his match with Dave and made it to the finals - he couldnt have been too tired at least until the fourth set. Here's the scoreline again:
6-7(4) 6-7(11) 6-2 6-1 7-6(3)

Moreover, Dave was off fishing before being called to Shanghai and was only playing after three guys dropped out. This is a testament to just how "fit" Dave was and where his game was. So Shanghai was a legit win for Dave.

My point w/ Nalbandian is that he at the very least challenges Fed. At the FO, at Shanghai, and at Rome 6-3 3-6 7-6(5). The rec says 6-1, Fed but ignoring the competiveness of their matches and their rivalry would be a pity.

Regarding why Fed's opponents seem to fade, a huge part of it is Fed's complete mastery of the game. It's obvious that players wouldnt fade if the other players weren't so good. I'm adding a point that the mentality of certain players is lacking in competitiveness. After Roddick played a spectacula rally with Fed at the USO Finals, he tells Pmac he's "having too much fun." This indicates to me that he's enjoying playing at a high level in relation to Fed. Blake wins a third set at his QF w/ Fed and gets blown out in the fourth, an indication of a letdown in game. Hewitt and the rest all talk glowingly about how great Fed is in their pressers. Listen to any of them. Again, the opponents fading is both part due to Fed's game but also as Fed's achievements keep going and his confidence keeps growing, other players like Fernie give it one shot, if they dont make it give up. And thus the breadstick and bagel.

I didn't know that you proclaim a winner of a best of 5 match already after the second set ;) . It's true that David won the first set and was up a break in the second but then Roger got into the match.

The thing with David is, he has the talent to challenge Federer, which is not something most of the top 20 (let alone most of the tour) can do. There are lots of players that really fight against Roger (Massu, for example) but simply don't have enough game to beat him. And there are the headcases who should by all rights be giving Roger hell and then decide not to show up mentally that day.

It takes a special kind of player to put both together, which is why Roger has so few defeats over the last couple of years. The people that cry over the lack of competition in Roger's era can basically bemoan the talented headcases that just don't have it mentally to push Roger week in and week out.

I, too, would like this to change and I believe it will, but saying already that you're 100 % sure that Nadal has no chance is a little silly in my opinion. Having said that, I believe that Federer's losses to Nadal were mainly due to him not reaching his usual level and were lost more in the head than on the court.

That's quite right. However, the US HC season and the indoor season, so far, have proven that Roger is not the only player on the tour. Nadal better be careful he falls into that false belief, a la Andy Roddick, that Roger is the only player on the tour that he should be worried about. He may be the top player and the top may be Nadal's goal but on the way to the top there are many other players who can beat him.

RG was on grass for like 4 years in the 20's. Every other year its been on clay.

And I guess Cincy, Toronto, and USO are the only "fast" court tourneys in the world right? Paris and Shanghai arent?

Roger, after the first set, was merciless...All credit to Federer...But, as I've stated previously, it just seems that when players lose the first set against Roger, especially in a five set match, they no longer compete...

In order to compete with Roger, what to say of defeating him, one has to believe...stick to one's strategy...and fight...This does not mean victory...but at least the scoreline might be better..

Gonzo played smartly and fought in the first set...and then, after he lost it after a WELL PLAYED GAME from Roger, he gave up...

Sad...but, other than Rafa, I feel that no one believes they can defeat him after losing the first set..

Who was the last player other than Rafa to defeat Roger after losing the first set?

Tommy almost came back from 2 sets to love down against Fedex at this year's Aus Open.

Federer should just retire and stop embarassing himself. I mean, is this the best he can do?

I'm sure many of you think that he really deserves to be #1. He has simply been lucky for the past 4 years and about 100 tournaments or more. I have never seen such a lucky man. He will probably continue this lucky streak for another 4 years. OK, 10 years tops.

Lucky?

Connors was lucky in 1977.

McEnroe was lucky in 1982.

Sampras was lucky in 1998.


Only 1 American man is really unlucky - Blake

:woohoo:

A pity that the final was such a lopsided affair, Gonzo clueless aginst Fed as usual.

Biggest thing with Fed's win: 10th title of 2006, double digits 3rd year in a row :eek: Truly insane.

Now take Paris to make another record: 5 TMS titles in a year!

My name is spelled without a "c", thank you very much. As for the rest of your post - you are the one who has a misconception about Federer's game.

Well, keep believing that Federer only wins because he can hit lots of winners, won't make it true however.

Wimbledon's 1st occurence: 1877
RG's 1st occurence: 1891

There you go. What more do you want to know?

If you believe that the USOpen is the second most prestigious slam, if this is your line of thought

I never said it was ONLY that. It's that, combined with the fact that he is great at forcing errors and has a very solid defense to boot. No, it's not because the opponents have already given up. There's no evidence to back that up. Look at Paradorn this week in Basel. Oh wait, that's right. He choked in the tie break. Even though Federer hit winners to return those mini-breaks, still, it just shows Paradorn choked. YEAH! Fanboyism and anti-fanboyism... So silly.

Please stop trying to read my mind and assuming that I can read yours.

You quoted a message where was said that Federer make opponents fade away due to a endless barrage of winners. What I am gonna think?
It gave me the impression that you believe the winners are the only or the main component of his game. I don't have reading-mind powers to know what else you think about Federer's game or what you think it's more important. Be more clear.
p.s you forget about his serve

And please stop with this nonsense of choking, I already said before to GleenMirny that my original post had 0% about choking, just because that post wasn't intended for you, does not mean you should not have given a look in that
