2015 Rome F: Djokovic def. Federer 6-4, 6-3

1st set: The scoreline flattered Federer. His serve was what kept up with Djokovic. However, the World No. 1 produced a USO 2011-esque return winner to get a set point that eventually went his way.

2nd set: Routine. No1e broke early and never looked back.

Congrats Novak!!

The game at 4-4 was crucial, Fed failed to break and that decided the match. After that, Fed kept the score respectable. Good tournament from Fed after the disappointing Montecarlo and Madrid. Rest and be ready for RG and especially, Wimbledon, champ.

As for Novak, go and fucking take that French Open finally!

Very good performance by Djokovic. It's hard to see anyone beating him at the French Open if he maintains this form, which is clearly on par with 2011 so far.

Re: 2015 Rome F: Djokovic def. Federer 6-4, 6-3

Once Federer nudged Djokovic into his USO 2011 form -- with that predictable, no-angle, outwide serve at 4-5 in the 1st set -- the match was over. Rather than really battle it out in the 2nd (with unpredictably varied backhands and heavily spun forehands into corners) Federer started playing even lower percentage stuff in the 2nd set. And it is much too strange to watch Roger and hope he doesn't run around anything to hit his forehand, to pray instead that he let his backhand do the only damage he's capable of doing. If that doesn't get fixed he'll spend the next 2 years happy to reach major finals.

Meanwhile, wonderful, within-the-zone stuff from Djokovic. His strokes and mind are grooved. Impressive.

KING NOVAK!!
This is what happens when Fed and his flop backhand isn't gifted a match by his countryman.

Well if he plays like that he could win RG. If like in first 3 matches then Nadal will win again.

Nobody is beating this Djokovic in RG unless Nadal gets his act together or Murray can find fitness for 5 hours
