    Break to Fed. He backed up to make sure he got that one in.

    Since Fed can't convert a BP to save his life, Berd does the job for him with a UE ;-)

    Yes, sorry, I was being facetious. Novak also mixed outfits... They have some clothes to move, I guess.

    Fed takes the first set. You may have been right after all about Berd not getting more than 8 games, but it is not over yet :)

    Thats very crucial winning the 1st set. Now just keep your concentration and win the next one.

    BH in rallies are good in general. The real problem is the return.

    All those who play with two hands on the racquet are cowards.

    That is a bit harsh. Let us agree that it is rather feminine rather than cowardly.:)

    I swear I could see Fed dumping it into the net on BP before he actually did it.

    If Fed loses this set I am afraid it will be Berd in 3.

    Berd gets his 8th game :-|

    Berd chokes a bit and Fed played a nice forehand combination - topspin + takes it on the rise to set up the BP.

    5-4

    Fed and his allergy to BPs.
    If this goes to three, the winner may as well not show up and hand the trophy to Nole tomorrow.
