Are you still gloating?!!
My respects to his opponent but Federer choked big time!!!He didnt play the big points very well.He got tight in the tie breakers!!He blink first!!I am a fed fan but he has to retire.This is a guy he should beat
Yes, I'm sue you do, and, when you're proven wrong, I'm sure you'll conveniently forget that prediction, just the way you seem to have forgotten your gushing over BP before this tournament began; SUCKS being left with egg on your face, doesn't it?

That's true. He started winning earlier, so why should he be held to a late bloomer's schedule?
Your thread is proof that the "what will Nadal do at 31" analogy should be retired.
Since he won at 19 and Fed at 21, a few months shy of 22, the numbers should be adjusted for fairness.
Very nice and balanced post.
Fed hasn't played well since returning from his break.
He's won some matches but clearly was quite a bit off his best form.
The return of serve from his BH was poor.
He can resolve that problem but if he doesn't work on it constantly it shows, it's just one of those areas that degrades quickly for him.
This problem cost him the match IMO.
His game needs a bit of time on the practice courts, his back injury probably interrupted his training so he just did what he could do.
I have no doubt he'll resolve his problems, he knows what needs to be worked on and as long as he's healthy he can correct these problem areas.
credit to stakhovsky for a great match and being clutch. put federer under a lot of pressure.
federer's play was below par, but he didn't play badly like he did vs falla/berdych 3 years ago and would've easily got through if he didn't run into stakhovysky who played ridiculously well and didn't crumble even a bit at any stage .
oh yeah ? federer never went to 5 sets from 1R to SF from 2003-09, 7 long years at wimbledon.
if they are the same type of players, federer wouldn't have 16 slams off clay and rafa only 4
rafa wouldn't have 8 rg titles and federer only only one .
The style of play Stakhovsky had was just about perfect for taking advantage of Fed's weaknesses.
It was a very nice game from Stak, he deserves full credit and it was really refreshing to see that type of play.
The mental aspect was excellent in those circumstances also.
Just found this thread!
NO ONE? No? I guess SOMEONE did!
You were saying?! :twisted:
If Roger had his new racket, he would have won this match
