i just hope he can play at his best level, and we will see what happens- he looked good in Basel.

I like the draw. I don't think Novak's level is all that high at the moment. The general level in Paris was very low.

Dominic is usually poor at this time of year, and Berretini's game is still too raw to trouble Roger.

I think Roger skipped Paris specifically to have a real tilt here. Bring it on!

So Fed is scheduled to play Thiem on Sunday.

Annoying thing is that it seems I won't be able to see on TV; the Djokovic match is showing up on my schedule but Federer's later match is not. :rolleyes: I understand that MLS cup with Toronto in the finals is top priority, and I get that they have obligations to the CFL (Canadian Football League). But I can't believe they're gonna air a NASCAR race over tennis. :facepalm: :mad:

First set to Thiem 7-5. :| Roger isn't playing badly, it's just close and came down to a couple of points.

Thiem wins 7-5, 7-5. :frown2: Fed had some BPs in that game but it was not to be.

Doesn't look great now for Fed -- doesn't seem that he's in good enough form to beat Novak, so a win here was really a must. :sad:

Almost out of the tournament now.

Will depend on others results now to get him thru.

Really disappointing season since that Wimbledon MP meltdown. :sad: :sad: :sad:

Saw some of today's match. Roger looking better but still not great. Djokovic is gonna be tougher than Berrettini :p

Need to cut down on FH errors

Roger's serving in the first set was amazing. Novak looks out of sorts in general. In the second set, Fed had chances to break right away, but didn't. Then Novak had BPs for the first time but Fed saved them, and broke Novak in the very next game. :D Roger leads 4-2.
