    Tipsarevic is actually playing pretty well but federer is just making it look so easily and coming up with a responce to anything janko throws at him.

    There have been a few iffy signs that ******** might make an apperance later in the game, dont expect an upset here tho.

    Agreed. I don't go out of my way to watch Tipsy matches, but from what I've seen, this is him playing at his usual level. I'm sure both are making too many errors for their liking.

    I'm not able to watch. What was the reaction? Just not many cheers or is it a negative reaction?

    No booing thankfully but just nothing. A few claps maybe but that's it.

    Djokovic got that treatment last night as well.

    Fed still seems to have the same slightly bothered look he had at Basel.

    Hard to see him losing this though, feels like Tipsy has to work a little too hard to keep up.

    Now mr Robert you know that is a lie. I was there, they were cheering for him. I even had this annoying woman behind me keep yelling 'come on Nolly'. Yes she said Nolly. :oops:

    Tipsarevic is doing NOTHING wrong, playing the right shots and to me it looks like he's making far less errors than federer (dont quote me on that tho) and yet federer is simply playing better.

    It must be so fustrating to know that you're playing well, playing the right shots but still losing the points.

    Federer breaks, 2-1

    obvious Tipsy has a sore throat. he should quit now before he gets injured or something.

    Totally agree. Only if he is 25 we could have seen him more in the coming years , he could have blown the competition away:neutral:

    Let's split the difference and call it classy luck. No way he could regularly repeat that shot.

    even a geriatric Fed is more watchable than most players today.

    What did the commentators say, 53 consecutive holds of serve against Tipsy? That's pretty remarkable. :)

    Game over. Federer wins 6-3, 6-1

    Outplayed, outclassed but on the bright side, janko played really really well and if i was delpo or ferrer, id be worried.
