God damn it!!!I really want Federer to lose this Ginepri match in order to have an interesting TMS Cincy final but unfortunately somehow he wins again. Luck is always at Federer's side when he is playing bad. For the organizers I have an offer. Please cancel the final, make the ceremony and give the Cup to Federer:)))

We'll see.

If Federer were to either a) play brilliantly tomorrow or b) play another terrible match but somehow get through, I wonder how the crowds would react to his achievement. They might recognise it as a triumph of mental strength, but they certainly wouldn't be applauding him for his tennis this week.

i dont think he or anyone else should care how the crowd reacts. he doesn't have to prove he can play good tennis. he is well and truly past that point. so if he wins the tournament people should just realise it means that he can win top level tournaments when playing at his worst and respect him for that. and maybe laugh at hewitt or roddick for losing to him again.

if he wins the tournament that is....

I seriously doubt that's the kind of thought process running through their minds. Both of them must be itching to get another chance at him, especially Roddick. If he gets through, it'll be only his second ever match with Federer on American soil.

Funny how nobody complains Rafa winning all these tournies, and he has played the most tournies than any player out there

I'd take the latter, give him the cup already because his tennis has been :tape:

GO Fed GO :banana:

I'm not suggesting he should care, but the atmosphere in his matches has been as flat as a pancake. Granted, Federer is not someone who brings people to their feet most of the time anyway and I have no problem with that, but the lethargy of his play has been reflected in the crowds. After all, this is one event where people have not seen Federer's best in recent years; this is the first time he's actually gone deep into the draw, and some of the crowd must be wondering what on earth all the fuss is about him.

Just a thought, this doesn't make me a Fed HATA and I still hope he can win tomorrow, of course. But it isn't every week that you can get to the final of a TMS event without having to play a single Top 30 player.

True, true. The sparse turnout is definitely a cause for concern, in fact it may be what's causing the poor level of play, rather than vice versa. Not necessarily in Federer's case, I think that's just poor form, but some of the other day matches have been a little tedious too.

I looked it up and realised, before anyone complains, that Rochus is in the Top 30. At number 29. But still, of all the Top 30 players you could draw...

first of all. roger brings people to their feet through his tennis
second of all, their was a great atmosphere in the federer/blake match, his day ones have been flat just like all the other day matchs. the crowd only get into night matchs

The first point is redundant considering the level he's playing at right now. When he's at his best he can bring me to my feet, let alone a crowd watching in person, but there's been no evidence of it so far.

The atmosphere was decent in the Blake match, it would have gotten better had Blake taken his chances and pushed it into a third. The Rochus match was at night and the crowds were hardly involved in that, but I'm not really criticising them or the players - just a bad match-up for Rochus where Federer's serve was dominant.

Hey, after last year's US Open, no-one should ever disrespect Ollie again. But for Federer, I mean, it had to be one of his best ever draws.

yeah maybe. but on hard courts aside from safin and nadal, and maybe gonzalez on a great day, how many difficult draws are there for federer

:D

well, seriously speaking, if ( and this is a big IF)Federer wins with this level,then, yes, mental strength 'll be a factor..from his side and non mental strength from whoever gonna play with him.(obviously he's not in form ,so his opponent might have a chance, ).
the guy doesn't have to prove he plays well,true.. but he should play well, cuz that's what is expected from him..to win and to make it beautifully..
yet, Federer has had a bad record for Cinncy, so all in all, this is a good step ..
