Fed failed to keep his winning streak which started in Dubai going down against Thiem in the Indian Wells Finals.Still pretty good week for him with another 600 points.
Federer lost against Kokkinakis last year in R2 so he's not defending any points here so hopefully he makes merry in Miami :grin2:

Projected path -

Like the draw. On paper Federer can make a deep run. Will be really interesting to see the conditions since I believe his chances greatly depend on it. The stadium looks wonderful from the outside and if that can be supplemented with some relatively quickish conditions, it would be just perfect.


PS: I thought it was a great draw even last time around. So hoping Federer does better than a R2 loss.

Thanks for the thread, I hope he can shrug off that close defeat and push forward now, every victory matters, any tournament win should be unexpected.

I got ahead of my self in the Thiem battle believing that Federer would get it done after set 1, but every point has to be earned in tennis and congrats to Thiem on his defiant win!

Gd luck in Miami to the pair of them!

My dear Spectator75, you're missing all the fun. <img src="https://i.imgur.com/RG8lZFZ.gif" border="0" alt="" title=":D" class="inlineimg" />
Hehe.... I can only indulge in such fun in small doses.

I hope you are well?

Since Punky declared English men hot and I declared to only know fictional 19th Century English gentlemen, I have seem to find myself to be in contact with many English men and women. Meet two at work, that’s on top your good self and other Brits on MTF.

His body language today on court looks really bad...over the years, even when he was losing or struggling, his body language never used to be this bad on court...but these days (over the past year), he gets grumpy & annoyed very easily.

Horrendous match. Guess the new outfit will live to see another day. Honestly though, this was probably the worst match Federer's played to win this year. He's usually lost them the last 18 months. Anyways onto Krajinovic....
