Default IW R2: Federer def. Kudla 6-4 6-1

Roger seems a bit off but got the job done against this kid who didn't do badly TBH



That level won't be enough against Raonic though.

1st set was Unforcerer.
I """might""" understand that, if you tell me Federer was getting himself into the court, the speed. It's the first match there, so I can understand that.
2nd set was pretty good overall, no so many UEs.

I think if Fed's FH is okay, he could get far this tournament.

Roger is starting to hit so many forehands ugly. Almost over his head like Nadal

Not really. Roger's shotmaking was really good, just like Dubai final, but he seemed a little slow and sloppy with the movement. I do hope its not the virus he has apparently got
Good first match considering the circumstances and the shitty surface.
I cant see him advancing past the semis anyway
But if he is really not well - and he looked sickly out there, he shouldnt risk it for IW.
Hopefully he will do the assessment with the off-day tomorrow and take the intelligent decision. Though I dont doubt he will show up against Raonic unless it gets worse. Roger wont want to withdraw twice in 3 months after having done it once his whole career before

Well, rumours are out that Fed got the bug as well.
Hope not of course, but as he had to take a potty break in between sets...
Anyways, we'll soon find out. Hopefully he just looked a bit slow and sloppy because of the court. He won't retire unless he really needs to do so methinks.

Easy-peasy job for Fed, but of course this youngster was not in his league. Yet, perhaps, as I liked what I saw from him. Despite the one-way traffic mirrored in the score, I think this Kudla indeed has some talent.

Kudla has a nice backhand down the line, noticed it against Hass at the AO. Too easy for viruserer

I would like to see the 2nd set stats.
Because I remember the first set he had a negative W/UE ratio.

Nadal doesn't mishit that many forehands. occasionally an overhead maybe??? not that common for him.... the backhand on the other hand, sometimes that one is pretty misdirected

Federer is looking a bit off but Kudla has big potential. he has great service but i just worry that Dennis doesn't manuever the court well enough or have any variety whatsoever. also he is very awkward when a ball is hit quickly to his backhand; not good at adjusting to surprise

one step at a time, roger....glad he got through the match even though he wasnt feeling his best..normally he doesnt take the court if he's not up to par so i gotta assume he was feeling ok to play...but i still say his color wasnt right...raonic next and this one i am looking forward too...i dont think they have ever played each other, so it should be interesting.

But the good news for Roger is that this kind of match could trouble a lot of other good players if they are not 100%, but Roger's insane amount of finesse and variety still allowed him to completely dominate this match. I am surprised that more people have not noticed the lesson one can learn from this match. Using plan B is important if one has the talent to play different styles.

Uhh, I didn't see Federer mishitting almost at all tonight! Quite amazing given he was a bit slow in the feet.
I saw maybe one or two shanked backhands the whole match, and obviously a few normal errors.

He's hitting with a lot of spin, and playing patiently. Seems to be working well.
