    It was the backhand that was off. Anyone know what that would mean?

    I found this post very strange since it is Doha Qatar we're talking about after all.So I searched and the weather was 20-25.That's anything but cold.

    goodall seemed to say that fed. had some tape on it either during the match or during one of his practice sessions.

    I dont know then.Roger said it was pretty cold yesterday and even Mirka was dressed in relatively warm clothes.I've also personally experienced that regions in or around desert regions can be incredibly cold at night.

    yes,desert areas have like 40C at day and minus 10-20 at night (I think),but I doubt the tournament would let such temperatures.They are not any sort of money to cut the budget on heating.:)

    You have lost your mind if you think 22 slams semi's in a row is useless/meaningless

    I think that we were wrong I have read a few quotes from Fed about this match and he didn't mention being injured and I guess if he was it would be all over the news!

    It seems that this match wasn't lost by Fed but won by Davy!

    Well, I remember and do care...
    Pioline made the semi finals and played great to defeat Stich in a very tough semi-final match.
    Can't remember for sure who played Sampras in the other semi, might have been doubles specialist Tod Woodbridge (sp) ? from AUS.
    Anyway, I wish Stich would have won that semi against Pioline (although I liked Pioline as well) because he would have given Sampras a MUCH tougher match than Pioline did in that final.
    Pioline was simply rolling over whenever he played Sampras...Stich most definitely would have been the tougher matchup.

    Who Davydenko or Federer. Fed has the smallest biceps/triceps I have seen in a while. Maybe its just because his body fat percentage is so low.

    It was one of the commentators who said that he was watching Fed in practice and that he was shaking out his wrist, and the cameras showed him doing it 3 or 4 times (while I was watching) during the game. Fed's still being accused by some trolls as using it as "excuse" even though the remarks came from the commentators; can you imagine the brouhaha if Fed himself had said it. Yikes!

    Federer PM interview

    "Yeah, he served very well, especially when he needed to. He played better," Federer said after the match. "I felt my arm from the cold but it is not an excuse. He served well, many 200s out there. He made it difficult as the match went on," Federer said.

    No injury

    A few more but not all of them. Awesome!

    Nice, yeah, it's a very nice old town. The oldest, most northern located Roman settlement to be exact. 'Ultra trajectum' is where the name comes from.

    :) well it is a pleasant place indeed! As for the weather: depends on what weather you like. Usually, it rains over here. Right now, but this is an exception, it snows and freezes. The pubs are nice and warm though, and so are the people. :p

    hehe yes,I suspect one very important factor that formed her opinion was the pubs :mrgreen: But the ppl were-suprisingly-rather friendly and ready to start a conversation.Not at all expected from northerners-as we call them.:p but then again,I never had the pleasure of meeting a dutch.Only Germans,Poles and Swiss from the region-who weren't sooo talkative.:) so maybe Dutch people are a whole different story.Both of them I know are Fedfans so that's a good sign.;)

    Heheh. Yeah we over here are 'northerners' indeed, so at times a bit distant at first meeting, but Utrecht with its huge university, law school & various technical institutions (in total: close to some 60,000 students, lots of them from abroad) is very internationally orientated and highly educated so nearly everyone speaks English. A typical university town so the folks around here might not be 'typical Dutchies'. Most of us like to meet up with folks from abroad! :)

    I think in our country, students are usually quite open for conversation with foreign students etc. and with people in general. But most working class people and business people are often in a bit of a rush, and not really interested in the people they don't know. That could be a problem for a lot of mediterrean people I think. Most people here are polite, but not always as warm and close with strangers as they are in Italy, Spain or Greece.

    He's old... He's going to get injured more (Granted, Davy should be too)
