And for the Old Man, the fact that he took this to 5 is a testament to his greatness, he was physically spent in the 5th set but still did an admirable effort against a rival that did not give anything easily, he served awfully during a couple of sets but his fight in the TBs was amazing, I'm actually proud of him there.
Yeah - Federer is such a massive pita for opponents, the tiebreaks he just keeps winning again and again. Greatest tiebreaker of all time (and Murray has become bloody good at them also the last few years).
but today andy murray deserved the victory , but roger had many balls , he served like shit all match and murray served like god and roger was capable to pushed to the limits to andy and go to the 5ºset.
but the reality is that roger in this slow or medium harcourts needs to serve nearly the perfection for defeat nadal , nole or murray , because he is not capable to be so regular from the baseline like them and not has they physicall condition.
the problem with the return of murray against fed`s second serve , is that roger hasn`t the footwork and reflexes of his peak years , and he hit the ball without timing
I watched only the end of the 4th and the 5th. I must say Murray was pretty clutch mentally. I didn't expect him to stay focused after he lost the 4th. Federer was physically done in the deciding set though.
This match shows that prime Fed would wipe the floor with Mugray and Fakervic who have emerged in the holes left by Federer and now Nadal. what a bunch of mugs, we'll look back at them the way we look back at Hewitt, Roddick, Johannsen, and Gaudio. Vulture mugs.
Pretty expected, Andy should have won in 4 and the better player throughout, but Rog was incredibly solid and you can't say enough about how much of a fighter the GOAT is. His fans should be proud of the effort today.
You clearly don't watch - or don't know - much about tennis. Not only is it not impossible, but winning a match after a 5 set epic has been done many, many times. Are you saying that all those past champions were cheating somehow? Just because Federer at his age cannot last a match after a 5 set epic, doesn't mean fitter players cannot either.
Too defensive are we? i'll be more than happy to play tennis with you in real life. let me know
