Re: Toronto R2: [2] Betterer def. Polansky 6-2 6-0

Polansky is the worst player inside top 150

This guy can't keep a ball in play more than 2-3 shots

Re: Toronto R2: [2] Betterer def. Polansky 6-2 6-0

During one of the rain delays, they showed an extended highlight package of the 2005 US Open final. Whenever I see things like that, I'm struck by Federer's aggressiveness. He didn't hit rally shots in those days; if given a neutral ball, whether on the forehand or backhand, he would hit it hard to whichever corner his opponent had left vulnerable.

This, in stylistic terms, was reminiscent of that.

Fed needs to stop screwing around out there. Almost seems a little disrespectful.

On the other hand, the forehand seemed to have the zip its been lacking the last few years. Excited for Fed's hardcourt season.

Not sure if its the court speed or the balls. The forehand looks nothing like it did at wimbledon.

US open might be similar if just a touch slower on arther ashe to this court but those wilson balls they use have the most zip out of the hard court swing. He needs this kind of pace and depth to have any chance against the nadals/murrays (if on form) and nadal ( he will play "miraculously" never in doubt..
Did remarkably well on break points actually going for winners and converting most of them.

As I said in the live commentary, his groundstrokes did look very good but that's not really hard against an opponent of this calibre. Far too early, and too easy of a test to draw any real conclusions from it.

+1

Too easy for Fed, Polansky is just too weak at this level, this wasn't a competitive match at all.
Some nice points from Roger, agressive shotmaking from the back mostly, and the serve (apart from the first game he served) was okay. The funniest thing today was Fed's BP conversion, he got 6/6! :superlol:

Does give you an idea of how abysmal Janowicz is this year.

Fed did not have enough confidence at Wimbeldon because he did play few matches on clay . He wanted to get to F and he did it but
as if he could not believe he is in Final of GS again after 2 years and his worst 2013. Only he knows how bad was his back but he had a lot of defeats and everyone called him to retire because he can not play tennis anymore ! It should have been very tough for him!

come on....

hearbroken was wimbledon 2008 or , especially australian 2009 in where fed had the match all time in his hand and lost.

wimbledon 2014 was painful for the great effort of roger to pushed novak ton the limits and fight like a real champ , but the reality in that nole had the match in his hand , he should won in 4 or even in 3 sets.

he was superior all the match
