    Federer's been asking Sharapova for help with the serve. 3 DFs in a row.

    Has anyone ever seen this? Federer doubles 3 times in a row? Walks to the chair UNMOVED.

    Didn't even seem like a choke, just seemed like he wasn't ready to take anything off his serve.

    What's up with Federer's serve this week? Never seen him broken so much.

    That was a Coria like service game from Fed, have never seen Fed do that before (3 DBFs in a row).

    This is the worst i have ever seen federer serve. Horrible game, didn't even make Murray play well to get the break. Murray can win this on his c game if fed keeps this up.

    We all seem to have terrible memories, Fed must have done that numerous times in 2004-2007 but he was playing against such weak clowns that they couldn't break him regardless.

    Even before Federer served the last couple of those double faults, he was visibly shaken. I think Murray is in his head. Not really the 'changing of the guard' as Federer gave that up to another couple of guys a long time ago, but Murray is certainly a better tennis player than Federer right now, and Federer knows it.

    Given how enthralling Nadal vs Djokovic was in 2011 (and early 2012), its pretty obvious Federer isn't necessary, especially with Murray now at the Djokovic level.

    Stick a fork in Federer, he won't win too many more games playing like this. Not like he had any chance in hell of winning this match. Let's just sit back and enjoy Murray-culous tennis.

    The truth about Federer just annoys you, but that's normal, don't worry.

    Must be hard to accept that Federer is the world's most popular player. It's not even close. I'm sure Nadal's still popular with the trainers though.

    Yea Murray is in Federer's head that's why he owned him 3 times in major finals, despite trailing in the h2h in every of those matches.

    the 3 doubles from Federer and lack of emotion make me wonder how much his heart is actually in this match

    Changing of the guard will be when Federer loses in the 4th round of US Open 2016, to a player of 18 years old, who will go on to win 12+ Slams. Until then, he'll win and lose to these second, third and fourth tier greats.

    Federer could look to Serena for advice on how to maximize the latter years.

    Of course it is. Fed is 31 years old. Djokovic won't even sniff the top 5 when he's 31 years old.

    Yeah, Nadal isn't popular with the fans. You are so intelligent to think that.

    Wow. Fed making us lowly hackers feeling better about our DFs. Fed never shows a lot of emotion. He'll bounce back.
