Could this be another 2009 AO repeat?
I doubt it, lol.
Roger is making enough errors that even Venus would be proud of.
Sorry but this is mentally weak. He's basically giving up. C'mon man, this is a joke!
He gave up. Normally he would have challenged there.
I called it (sort of)
...assuming Berdych wins, of course
Murray won't get past Berdych.
And Delpo will beat Djokovic but lose to Ferrer who will beat Tipsy.
Thus we will have a Ferrer/Berdych final and be guaranteed a new slam champion for the 1st time in, what, 200 years?
If this was Nadal down, no way he'd be giving up so easily.
Really want federer to at least make a fight for this set but if he doesnt then i hope that its a night match for murray vs Berdych on this form. Great chance for a murray/djokovic final too!
Birdie was in the same situation 3 yrs ago at the australian open and lost. I'm not buying it until he has match points.
Is the number one ranking gone?
Really hard to Predict these next several matches
Federer might have the ultimate god mode, but he also has the ultimate scrub mode as well.
And delpo for me.
You know Berdych is just going to be demolished the next match too, lol.
Did I just jinx him?
Yeah but that was a very different Federer.
I think he's pretty obviously sick. He's sweating and looks awful.
That's why he bugs me. If he goes on a Delpo 2009 run, full credit to him. But, he will come up lame in the semi or final. You just know it.
You too zagor?
We've been here before remember AO 09'
I blame Fish. Roger is out of form.
berdych is on fire, federer is pressing however berdy has gotten and answer for every shot. berdy's return of serve is almost safin like (during safin's hey days)
He's probably suffering from a panic attack after having watched A-Rod finish his days...
How much did the LTA pay Federer?
That's true. He did say at one of the press conferences that he had a blocked nose, which likely has made him sick now.
Why are you guys doubting a slam champion?
Slam champion cannot be beaten by slamless in a slam.
Fed still has plenty of time to make a come-back - don't hit panic stations yet
Swiss breadsticks a cookin!!!! LALALALALA
No need to make excuses, this isn't Nadal. Federer is losing fair and square.
Probably not, but Berdych seems to know how to get to Federer in ways Federer himself has not figured out...this late in his career.
Prob shouldnt have cut his hair....
-2009 Fed was a better player than he is now
-In their 2009 AO meeting, Fed was never behind (as in down a break) in any of the last 3 sets.
Wonder if Fed will break a racquet
Fognini effect is catchier
wish he'd show some heart at least look like he wants to win
I have a feeling Birdie may outdo the meltdown by Cilic. He has shown in the past that he's capable.
So Fed fans what is the excuse this time?
Fish def. Federer
Fognini def. Djokovic
Curse of the "F"
When Berdych plays like this, he is very hard to beat.
Berdych teeing the serve on the Deuce side. Why isn't Federer catchin on!
Didn't have fish for dinner, no?
He's playing like a bum and Berdych is crushing the ball, pretty simple.
Berdych can play ball tonight.
So far its possible sickness and the fact he had a walkover, so its fish's fault.
This is just a straight arse beating. BP is right, though, if Fed doesn't chunk that swinging volley in the first set, he is up two breaks and wins that set. It might not have mattered, though.
