I have never been more happy, or more exhausted, Federer said.
I also enjoy Tsonga's passion during a match. As a Fed fan, I wish sometimes that he would show a little more emotion but that just isn't Fed's style. I like Tsonga's victory celebration.
what? so youre saying between federer, nadal and murray federer is the one youd rate lowest in terms of mixing up their game?
it is the exact opposite. the reason why murray and nadal have been very successuful against federer is the fact that they do NOT have to mix up their game a whole lot because it already is the best counter to federers game by default. in other words.. what makes them so hard to beat for fed is the fact that they can just stoically stick to what they do best anyway and its federer who has to try and come up with wild stuff to get them out of their comfort zones
Not at all, I was comparing them to big hitters like Tsonga, Berdych and Del Potro (see my original post). It is their inability to mix things up to any great extent which accounts for why they lose more often to Federer than Nadal and Murray do.
Fine if you want to argue it that way. So in effect Nadal and Murray have far more success against Federer by sticking to what they do best than do the likes of Tsonga, Berdych and Del Potro when they try to stick to what THEY do best when playing against Fed.
no need to state. we can tell by your avatar.
yes because what they do is already the most effective counter to federers game. no need to mix things up after all
that is also the reaosn why they can play matches against fed with barely making any unforced errors at all.
the big hitters have the problem that outhitting fed does not work most of the times because federer likes to take the initiative and dictate the points himself and because hes mixing up his game better than anyone else forcing them to hit out of their strike zones and pile up errors. the best way to counter federers play is to counterpunch him. hence the success of murray and nadal. thats what they do best anyway
I can agree with this.
Didn't see the match, just checked in, saw that Roger won. Can go to bed with a smile in my face. Peace to you all!
Loved Tsonga's fight in the second set. Almost down and out, shoulders slouched, made one last push and stole the set. Good to see from him. He's really jumped in the rankings. Hope to see him do really well at the AO. Wish he would win it but it's going to be almost impossible. Nobody in history can go through Nadal, Djokovic and Federer back to back to back. Impossible I say.
All Right Roger!!!! Great to see there's still some gas in the tank. Glad JW Tsonga gave him a workout-he should be very proud of himself.
Yeah, you had said this once already.
To win the AO, one does not have to go through all 3 back to back.
I hated Fed for losing that second set, but he kept his cool very nicely after that.
Can anyone please give a link to the on court interviews and trophy presentation?
Heheheh. Good stuff.
Can't believe nobody else noticed this.
The center service line blonde line judge was awesome. She's been there all tournament.
I love how she bends over at the waist instead of bending her knees. Very sexy.
That would be no issue as provided that the double hit occurs in one continuous stroke, it is not illegal.
Can you provide a pic or timestamp on espn3.com's replay?
I hope you did not mean the tall and skinny one with a super-round forehead that looks like a starving horse.
Acco the Robbie Koenig and Jason Goodall, Jason found out that Roger had not got to bed till 2 am the night before the Ferrer match, since he had to go for some charity dinner and stuff. So most likely he was a little stale during the Ferrer match. But seems he tucked in early before the final.
Anyone have a pic of Tsonga's GF?
Thanks, mandy and niff for all the pics.
he wont nescessarily have to
Belated congrats, Roger!!!
Tsonga at Wimbledon this year had #3 Federer in the QF, followed by #2 Djokovic in the SF, followed by #1 Nadal in the Final. That was his draw. :lol:
LOL at Tsonga's handshake at the net after the final. He is like "Gotcha. You can't escape a handshake with me now :-D"
Beautiful pics Mandy!!!
I'm specially enchanted by the beauty of this one.
It's like he (Rogi) and she (the Barclays WTF Crown) are made to one another.
I can assure you the line judge lady in question looked nothing like that.
But the only man in history who can do that, King David, at Madrid four years ago, hasn't won a slam until now... What a pity!
Nalbandian did it indoors in a best of 3. Furthermore despite his great form, he went into the AO 2008 and got wiped off the court by Ferrero, winning what...6 games was it? :lol:
