    Anyone else notice that whenever Fed plays Djoko at a slam he comes up with ridiculous shots?

    i.e two consecutive years meeting in the USO semi's Fed has hit a overhead smash lob (2008) and a through the legs tweener (2009).

    at the AO he hit that awesome inside out backhand into the right hand corner of the baseline.

    idk just an observation that i felt like posting..not sure that it has any worth ..

    Fed usually comes up with 1 or 2 sick shots in a match, let alone in Grandslam semifinals.

    Fed has a very good record against Novak when it comes to Slams. 5-1 or something I think.

    Federer get pissed off when Novak plays the funny man. So Fed tries to show off his skills so that people don't forget who the man is on the court.

    Djoko brings out the best in Fed, just like Agassi in Sampras.

    The reason is Djoko opens up the court with his powerful baseline shots and Roger can sometimes put an even more ridiculous angle on it.

    Djoko is a bit like Agassi in that he constantly plays a very high pace on average, but at max capacity his shots are less powerful than Fed's.
