    Quality DTL backhand from Tomic - he's looking pretty tall these days

    What's with the line that Tomic has shaved into the right side of his head?

    Nice put away by Fed!

    Fed should've won that last point, he had time for a passing shot.

    Roger already has a stranglehold on this match. Pun intended.

    Okay, Tomic isn't being humiliated. But I like Federer's approach to the match. Very intimidating.

    Tomic just gave Fed the look with that ball going out. He is so cocky. Smells of arrogance.

    Especially from Tomic. At least some resistance from him

    ESPN HD - they seem to do it through Starsports, don't understand the relationship...

    Where are you?

    Fed 'ticking all the boxes, hasn't put a foot wrong' sounds about right.

    Good return from Fed, still feels like there's reasonable pressure on the Tomic serve

    It's hard to read that forehand! But I think it's a flawed technique and he can't be consistent with it.

    Beautiful CC backhand from Fed to bring up game point!

    Followed by un-returnable serve for 4-2 lead.

    I can see Fed losing a set actually.

    Think about it.

    He's gonna have one of those second set lulls and Tomic is only getting warmed up. Could is the key word.

    Okay, Tomic is playing well. Could take a set. I'll stick to 3-0 for now.

    If Federer's match up issues with Berdych are any indication, Tomic should keep flattening out the forehand whenever possible.

    Tomic actually playing fairly well and keeping up with Fed even with Fed serving at 89%!

    Tomic tries his patented forehand drop shot and fails!

    Agreed. If fed serve comes back to earth, itll be interesting. Hope he has the first set by then

    I'm in Canada so it's not letting me through on ESPN. Thanks for trying. They're broadcasting Raonic's match here which is why I'm asking.

    There is no way Fed today is better than prime. No way in hell.
