13-0 in TMC RR

It's not often you see Federer df on set point. He's getting outplayed, and he's yelled at himself. My poor stuffed dog is saying plaintively to me, "I thought Hippo was done for the season!" as he gets clutched and clenched and squeezed.

Okay, Federer hypnotized Nalbandian into changing his gameplan, and fed him some carbs. 6 dfs in 2 sets now, 2-12 winner-ue ratio.
