    Prime backhand felt more free flowing and less hitting in net imo

    True, but people talk as if his bh was a weakness, and it really isn't except against a few players.

    Those are some seriously hideous shoes Fed is wearing. Did Nadal wear something similar a while ago ?

    I feel bad for Davy. The guy is playing well and is trying to come back and gets some serious bad luck in the form of Fed in round 2.

    Frustrating espn coverage. They wouldn't show the Monfils' match earlier, instead showing a women's doubles match, and now they are showing it instead of the Fed match.

    If he had closed out Gasquet in Doha this would have never happened.He would have been ranked around 30 and would have had a good chance for R3 at least.

    Is Davy still hurting for money. I remember a few years ago he didn't even have a sponsor. I feel bad for him, each round at a major is serious cash, and he's better than this.

    Fed really does practice those between the legs ones hard and flat.

    If Monfils would stop double faulting by a mile they would go back to the Fed match. It is getting embarrassing now.

    meanwhile Monfils has served 4 double faults on 4 successive match points on the ad side...

    Draw could get trickier? Fed has the toughest draw in a slam I've seen.

    Fed isn't playing well, don't let the score fool you - Davy is playing like crap and Fed is just better.

    He might have to beat Davy-->Tomic-->Raonic-->Tsonga--->Murray--->Nole to win the title.

    Federer is playing around ATM. He will keep all points short on Davy's serve, and just try and win out on his own service game at this point.

    The vast majority of this game has been practice and conservation of energy for Fed.

    I think we're watching different matches, Federer is playing well when he HAS to.

    Exactly. His play on Davy's serve is looking terrible, but the reality is that being a break up already he is trying to make all the points single shot points.

    It's pretty rare that a Fed beatdown is boring. Nobody else makes one as entertaining as him.

    The key is
    Federer : 3/13 break points
    Davydenko: 0/0 BP

    I feel like Fed has been doing this more in recent years, and it's cost him a few important matches. Won't cost him this one, though.

    It started of well in the first few games, but ever since then it's been quite boring :neutral:

    Yes, and do you really think this will be enough for the big guys? Fed made too many errors, looked too casusl. He didn't play all that badly, but didn't play well.

    His draw is tough and we all know what his chances are against Murray and Djokovic on this slow court. Let us take one game at a time. He was close to going out in third round of Wimbledon and still he won the event. I don't mean to say that he is gonna win AO but let us just savour this victory. Let us hope that he will improve. I guess this is only the second match he played in 2013

    Courier pushed it just like he did with Tomic after his match :)... but Fed didn't play that game
