I know in the other hand it can be a little concerning given that the past 8-10 months actually 16 months or so he's had issues with letting go of his leads and losing mathces like this one which he should have won.

Nevertheless, hopefully he makes a better showing at Cincy and that propels him to at least the semis at the US OPEN. Right now I am just hoping he keeps the slams semis streak alive and wins a couple of titles here and there.

I had no hopes for this tournament. But, whenever he has a huge 5-1 lead, I expect him to be able to close out a set/a match.

With Nadal sweeping clay court events , he couldn't afford it. If Federer had tanked clay court tournaments in 2006-2007, he woudn't have been No1.

That's just ridiculous and not even worth discussion. if there was even a grain of truth to it he would have tanked in many a clay court event so he wouldn't have had to face Nadal. That H2H is more lopsided than Murray's.

I think we just need to come to the realization that from this point on in Roger's career his only real motivation will be at the slams. Just because he might be playing crappily now does not reflect what his form might be at the Open. I think it's a matter of focus. And to act like he won't possibly win another title this year is just silly. We all know he's going to step it up big time for Basel. All the ball boys/girls will be counting on getting that pizza.

yeah i'm sure Roger just schlepped his wife and 3 week old daughters all the way to Montreal so he could tank. Good grief I don't know where some of this shit comes from.

Some people make because its like the French and Wimbledon never happened. If Roger never wins another title this year, this is still a fantastic achievement and no one should lose sight of that.
It's the whole what have you done for me lately mentality. And some just expect Roger to win all the time. Considering he only decided to play a couple days before Montreal started I had zero expectations. I don't think it was a mistake because he got some match play in, picked up a few points. And with the hellish draw he got in Cincy, I'm glad he was able to get some practice in, in Montreal.

Living in the US and having to listen to ESPN is worse. I'm sure Patrick McEnroe, Brad Gilbert and Darren Cahill are wetting themselves right now.

I'm just cheering for JDMP to take him down again. A Roddick/Murray final would be boring as hell.

OK I was out all day yesterday and didn't see the match. But know what happened. All I'll say about it is

Anyway I just saw the draw for Cincy. Is this for real? Roddick, Murray and Del Potro all in the same half of the draw, and all in Roger's half? And once again Roger potentially having to play Stan in the 3rd round?

Ah well. Was a bit after hearing about the 5-1 lead, but it was a great run. 21 matches, 2 GS and a Masters. Time for a little rest...and peak in time for the USO

I think there is a difference between bashing and criticizing. Roger's performance from yesterday won't take anything away from his achievements in Paris and Wimbledon and all us fans still can't probably really believe what happened in the past weeks, but nevertheless it was frustrating to see how he missed his chances in the QF.

Here are some highlights of the match:

this is a great year definitely... with the french and 15th slam history making... i was all expecting federer not to win in montreal... so i couldn't care much... it's still a decent tournament having to make into last eight... better than last yr...

now i only look forward to US open... hope he wins for 6th consecutive year...
