That was worst Fed's match for some time. He looked rusty or is just slighlty tired. I wonder if he didn't play too much on clay.

Millman played really well! First grass match is always tricky, even though he made a lot of errors it was good to see Federer go for his forehands like he was on Clay. Maybe playing clay will help his Forehand attack.

Well first grass match is always iffy to be expected. Nonetheless, he still won in straights so that's a positive.

Millman did his part and earned his glory for providing a great service to tennis at USO2018. This irrelevant match will not erase that.
This was the worst service he could’ve possibly provided for tennis because it allowed lucky djokovic another cheap slam title without having to play anyone serious...

Not Novak's fault that Fed decided to tank the match in order to avoid playing him

The bench looks good, but from a practical perspective the design is a bit silly. Just make it a board instead of bars for the seat.
I guess so. Not a big deal tho. Cool move by Millman to lift it up in blue collar fashion like a regular Joe. :thumbsup:

I can't help it but I always love it when posts like these are directly after each other. :nerd:

Couldnt see the match myself. Glad that he won. Get that grass game flowing.

Decent match from both. Not the highest level yet, but that's normal at the start of the grass season. Federer showed his class in the breaker.

Fed played lot of TBs on grass last year leading up to Wimby. Wasn't good and his ROS was awful. Hopefully this match wasn't a precursor of things to come.

I really want to see a Fed - Novak grass match before they both retire. Hope it's this Wimby

Nice to see Federer doing well after a busy-ish (towards the end at least) clay season, he's aiming for two titles, let's see if he can achieve it. Tsonga next, should be fun.
