Federer finally did what he had to do, keep the unforced errors down, this in turn forced David to go for a bit more and it rattled him and forced him into some uncharacteristic unforced errors.
?Not the best match by Nalbandian, one of the worst I seen him play actually, but brilliantly played by Federer

I am so happy for Federer!!!!

This was a long time coming. I posted this yesterday, and now I believe it is even more true. Roger is in a perfect position to win this tournament. He is the one with nothing to lose. He has no pressure, and can just enjoy the tennis and the competition.

I have a match on tape from Aussie TV of the match between Brian Vahaly and Vince Spadea at Indian Wells and the same thing was said. That explains a lot why the changeovers are quicker in person than on TV .

Not a good match at all by David. I don't think I've seen him spray that many balls or hit that many into the net since I became a "fan" of his.

I do congratulate Roger but I can't cheer. If David had played even close to his best, or how he would normally even play, and still lose to Roger...I would be right there with heaps of congrats. But David was more than off today and, in my opinion, Roger didn't have to do a whole heck of a lot. I know that Roger stayed on top of him because he knows, better than anyone, how David has the ability to fight back. I like Roger so I'm not completely ticked .

At least David is still 1-1 with a chance at the SFs although I doubt losing 10 games helped. Still one singles to go and a chance at the day not being a complete loss .

Like I said before. Roger did to David what David did to him. Roger went through periods of poor play against David and that helped David win. Hell that is the reason Roger was 0-5 to him, don't believe me than go look at the Oz site and Open site for the stats cause I know they are still there. Roger stayed in it today and cut back on his errors and put pressure on David's serve.

That was pretty low from Nalbandian, it was a key point and a very easy shot but instead Nalbandian chose to kill federer instead

This post sounds VERY similar to a post I just read somewhere else under another name. I'll say here, same as the other place, that stats don't always tell the whole story. I've learned that through many years of watching matches on TV and in person.

I understand undying loyalty to a player but I also understand giving credit where credit is due. Roger played a decent match BUT David played nowhere near what he's capable of. He was missing shots that he would've made any other day. Still, the good news is that David does still have a good chance at the SFs.

Now, I'm going to try my hardest not to let certain Roger fans turn me against Roger (like I ever would).

It was "low" but David has a temper so I wasn't all that surprised .

Just wanted to say I agree with every word. Of course I'm really sad that David didn't win - but everyone can have a bad day at work sometimes - I often do! He still has a chance and I will always be cheering for him

I thought I was the only one who was suspicion about that shot

Thanks to Roger's great reaction
