    As a guy who never wakes up before 11AM, I will actually wake up at 8 in the morning just to see Tomic getting spanked.

    I'm really way way off-line on this. What happened? Did Tomic say something wrong about Federer?

    if only things were so simple.. unfortunately they are not.. how stupid does one have to be to question federer's consistency.. nnot even at the semis level but at the 3 rd round???? if anything it is an insult..

    the die has been cast... we need a response.. a thunderous one at that.. right in the *** of tomic.. :twisted:

    I'm very sorry to hear this my friend. This is a much worse place for you not being around.

    Bernie is just a pantomime villain! He's certainly spiced things up :)

    One funny scenario would be federer losing the first 2 sets before the Classic Goat comeback to eatTomic alive

    So I put up $60 against my cousins $20 for Federer beating Tomic.

    Not bad odds at 3-1, considering the bookies are basically paying 7-1 LOL. Easiest $20 I'm ever going to make.

    Rosol is the epitome of a one hit wonder. He can't stay relevant without piggybacking Nadal's popularity. He's been swirling the bowl for a while now, and I will be very thankful when he is finally flushed.

    You hate him, don't you? Just because he won a Tennis match against Nadal.

    Sorry to hear that, man. Guess it would be weird if you spent more time here, then...

    I wouldn't expect Davydenko to go very far in the draw still but not many would've straight setted him no problem like Fed did 2 days ago.

    Simon reed says federer received the bigger cheer when he entered the court.. more than the cheer for Tomic..

    As much as I would enjoy a beatdown, I actually do want it to be somewhat exciting.

    Tomic serving first.

    Federer tempted by the net, great DLT winner.

    Tomic's slice seems to float quite nicely - Fed with a quality cross court put away!

    Pink Power. Chardy has already proven it. Fed's gonna win.

    Also I hate this camera lens that shrinks the court lengthwise. :( Makes their shots look slow.

    Can already see Tomic has no ground game to threaten Fed.
