    GOATerer shows up for a couple of points, 0-40 to get back on serve in the 2nd.

    I was waiting for that love hold. Last year against Davydenko, Fed was down a set and a break as well, then he made a love hold and broke back, then went on to win the match.

    It doesn't really surprise me that this is happening at all tbh. I mean, he'd be hard pressed to win Rotterdam, Dubai and IW again.. I'd prefer he won this match obviously, but if he lost I wouldn't go crying about it either.

    He's just broken back as well, so maybe he can get something going here.

    Why can't Nadal match threads be like this one? No trolling to be seen, and no gloating from ****s about Fed losing.

    Wow, the way Federer exploited Bennateau's movement with the short slice was fantastic.

    Benneteau has a great serve. Federer is often left flat footed on returns.

    Federer will really pay for not breaking in that game if he doesnt pick it up

    One person is hardly worth complaining about. Nadal match threads are loaded with ****s and trolls, and are never this peaceful because of them.

    French people can't play tennis. Embarrassing showing from Federer.
