Default Roger looked beatable...

I have to say after watching yesterdays match that Roger looked beatable. He looked really good but, he didn't look invulnerable. Hewitt played awesome, to get himself a set and a break off Roger. I think Hewitt could have won that match, it wasn't impossible for him.

So if you are waiting in the wings like Grosjean, Ancic and Roddick are you thinking maybe now?

P.S.

Grosjean(2-1) and Ancic(1-0) have winning records against Federer...

Wow, I never knew Roger Federer was beatable, it proves the old saying you learn something new everyday is true.

he's beatable but as PMac said this morning, Hewitt is about as good a fighter as they come and it took everything out of him just to force one tiebreaker and get one break. Most guys can't hang like that. PMac basically gave Grosjean no chance and said that Andy would have to "play the match of his life" to win. If it's Ancic, I think Roger will crush him.

Roger vs Mario Final looking most likely!

@@ If Roddick makes the Final then he'll obviously make more of a match of it~~ potentially a good 4-setter!

*#* Somehow Roddick can win^ the best chance is if it goes to 5-sets because Federer has a very poor 5-set record {5/8} & hasn't won a 5-setter in nearly 3-years; that's why I thought Hewitt had a chance if he could have consolidated his break in the 4th set>_<..

Of course he's beatable - who isn't? Personally I think Ancic has a better chance against Federer than Roddick, but that's looking too far ahead yet.

you don't think Roger would do everything in his power to crush the last person who beat him on grass and at Wimby? I do.

I also think he looked beatable whereas Andy's serve was enormous. I'm no Andy fan, but I'm gonna go out on a limb here and pick duckboy over club Fed in straights on Sunday

I agree- we need to give credit to his opponent. Hewitt was playing great in a lot of games.

I don't think Andy's serve being enormous will bother Federer - never has before. If Andy can't break Sjeng, then he's gonna have a lot of problems with Mario first.

Yep, and PMac's point, as much of an idiot as he can be, was that it's just almost impossible to sustain that level for a whole match. Clearly Lleyton couldn't. And if Lleyton couldn't do it, very very few people can.

Jtipson, I don't think Mario is as good from the baseline is he? If he's serve-volleying and Andy can get returns in play, if Andy's passing shots are working he has a chance to break. He was getting Sjeng's serves back in play but then Sjeng was hitting an amazing second shot from the baseline.

On the other hand, in the third set Andy started playing a LOT better and broke him fairly easily. It will depend on Andy's level IMO

It seems that from what many posters are saying that Ancic and Grosjean might as well take their losers money now and go home, as they are only interlopers getting in the way of a Federer/Roddick final on Sunday.

no way, I think Ancic could very well win. Andy's form has really been hardly convincing thusfar and Ancic played him tough just a couple weeks ago and it appears he's playing much better now.

I like Ancic a lot, but if it gets close, he will blow his chances.
