Two GIFs.

A little unconventional, but would be really grateful if someone could make a gif of the second set tiebreak win response of Roger. The "yeeeeah".

Last seconds of above video.

Also, when Roger won the 5th set, his leap into the air. Possibly this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D879ghasZp8

Thanks a lot.

I wish I could help you, dear Senti, but I don't know how to make Gifs.
Thanks for posting the links. Great way of whetting the appetite.

^ Yeah, my telly showed the highlights of the match, and they started with the 3rd set !!! So i just had to watch the second one again. And his celeb at the end is really nice.

Poor Roddick, up 6-2 and then loses all his set points. One of the funny things is how the player's families are seated one row behind the other. So in the Haas vs Fed match, you see Mrs Haas leaping up with joy, and the two Mrs Federer's stone-faced. Then the Grandma Federer looks askance with an annoyed look :D

In the Fed vs Arod match, every time Gavin Rossdale stands up, the guys behind (Stefanki) can't see the court. They have no option but to look sideways, lol. A bit unfair !

^ God bless you, Zildite. And thanks for the warning/suggestion -- yes, I will only use them well, never to rub into someone's pain.

May I ask what the procedure is. Did you download the entire videos and then use a software on your machine, or did you do it online. I'd like to know the details of how.
Thanks again.

In hindsight, that's when Roddick lost his best chance of winning the match. The way Roddick was playing with all that momentum behind him, he would have been extremely tough to beat had he gone 2 sets up, even for Federer. Instead, once Federer won that second set, there was a feeling that Federer had a slight momentum over Roddick for most of the last 3 sets, despite Roddick continuing to play very well and serving magnificently.

I went to keepvid to download the videos on to my desktop.
Then cut the video down to the necessary part using windows movie maker (this is not needed but it made things quicker for me). Without WMM you dont really have those black borders, like in the classic Nole pump (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showpost.php?p=5649661&postcount=26) gif :)
Made a gif out of the cut video using GIMP with the GAP animation package installed. GAP can be kind of tricky to install, I think this guides you through it with a wizard though - http://www.box.net/shared/e9i2rgyn9t
Rundown of that is...video - extract video range - click 'create only one multilayer image - enter the video range by frame with help from the video indexer. Save as gif once it's done.
...and make sure the file isn't too big, scaling the image helps.

I keep watching that second set TB and just can't believe how Feddy saved 4 set points (from being 2-6 down). I am so used to Fred blowing leads, losing sets when he's up 5-2 or 5-3.
