Federer fan forever
ugly match in my opinion
Indeed. Nadal is way more concentrated in the match than Tsonga.Tsonga just completely lost his mind at the end after playing some beautiful tennis to come back and force a 3rd set.
i don't think rafa is going to stand a chances against novak or the pitbull ferrer. these two are way too consistent and frugal in unforce errors unlike tsongaRafa's knee not doing well by the end - he was visibly grimacing. So we'll see how he does vs Murray.
Important win though - not pretty - he really struggles to hold serve now - especially when serving for a set/match. Still - if he has to lose - a SF loss to Murray is better than QF to Tsonga. SF in IW and Miami are good results considering the tendinitis. He'll have a shot at Murray if he plays like he has so far this tournament i.e. both of them patchy.
Now he needs good friend David to pull off a miracle vs Novak tomorrow as he's not beating Novak on one knee even if gets past the rest...
