    It is very clear that Fed's serve, movement and power have all declined since 2007, but at the O2 arena, he comes close to matching his best ever tennis (especially the last two years). The conditions are perfect for the genius to operate.

    Even though his form has been patchy since Cincy, he has about a 35% shot at winning tomorrow.

    Exactly he doesn't like having a losing H2H with anyone. He's accept it against Rafa, but won't against the others.

    Is their H2h even now at 9-9?

    It did feel personal tonight. Maybe he is still sore about the Olympics (or Shanghai lol).

    Federer had to play his pure and utter top gear best to win that tonight.

    It's clear his movement has severely declined, if he's not serving well then he's not playing well. But Murray made Federer raise his game and the better (eventual) player went onto win.
