Ditto. I didn't watch the match , but I guess he played better. 2 DFs, but 14 aces! I wonder how many unreturned serves he had in his favor? Sounds like a close score for such a dominant serve, was Olli playing really well? Roger's returning points won percentage is really small.oneandonlyhsn said:Ollie is so cute, no woner Fed said so. He has to be the most adorable little fluffy doll. Fed and Ollie used to play doubles, never saw tehm but that must have been an interesting duo.
I guess I should have said more than Ollies cuteness factor. Ollie played well, he has nice variety but not enough power to really force errors from Fed. Fed was having a hard time returning serve initially but after a few games he picked it up. Like PamV said Roger made some great shots today and Ollie too, he has beautiful hands.lucashg said:Ditto.

Well, glad it was in straights and it was more comfortable. Good luck next round, Roger! And get better by each one!
Agreed, NYC. Like I said in the OOP thread, both men served very well (70% for both in the first). There were plenty of nice rallies and Olivier had good depth and variety on his shots. Roger threw in a few s/v and even some chip-n-charge (Roche must be rubbing off on him. That, or playing doubles the night before ).NYCtennisfan said:Ollie played really well in this. He was cracking the FH and BH, taking the ball early but had no chance against Fed's serve.
Oh, nice stats! Should've watched the match, definitely. I missed their meeting in Miami, and now this. Thanks for posting the stats.Gogo123 said:The stats were good for Federer 31 winners/ 18 UE's
and 8 winners / 9 UE's for Rochus
but the commentator said that there were more forced errors that didn't enter the stats.
The one game that I saw Federer served 3 aces and one unreturnable serve.
I noticed that too. I hope they all have agreed to play great tennis from now on. I hope we get to see AO semis rematches, with a different outcome, of course :angel:oneandonlyhsn said:Seems to me the top seeds made a deal, they all played 3 sets yesterday and today they had good solid 2 sets wins :scratch:
