Pretty clinical demolition. Fed moves onwards.
Really? Miami/IW are not much faster than RG, without the randomness of clay.Can’t judge Federer’s form after a match like this.
In the third set i saw some easy misses.Too early to say anything. Hope he worked hard in the offseason so at least his fitness is there.He looked pretty sweaty by the end of the match.
Otoh Johnson had nothing to hurt him. Not even his once good serve.
Rla seems medium slow. Something slow Miami-Iw.
No he didn’t play anything. He had his exho tour in South America with zverev in early December. He played an exhibition set against kyrgios in the rally for relief. But that was far from serious and doesn’t count at all. Also I consider his match against seppi in 2015 his worst.As other say, this match doesn't give us any clues on Federer's current form as Johson is one of the worst jorney men on the tour. Did Fed play any tournament or match prior to the AO? Any exhition match? Federer has a good record in this tournament except for last year where he lost to that Greek man in arguarly his worst match downunder ever. Anywho, we can't say much about where Feder's game is until he faces a quality player not like a journey man like Johnson, whom I consder one of the most boring players on the tour to watch. As young guns like Zverev and Rublev are improving fast, Federer's chance of winning another slam is getting slimmer every gand slam, so he'd better win this one.
P.S. Struff would have lost in straight sets if Djokovic didn't give it a thought to entertain the crowd IMO.
He also played in Hangzhou on Dec 28/29 with ZverevNo he didn’t play anything. He had his exho tour in South America with zverev in early December. He played an exhibition set against kyrgios in the rally for relief. But that was far from serious and doesn’t count at all. Also I consider his match against seppi in 2015 his worst.
