    I've got Federer to win in 3. Paradorn only needs to win 1 set for me to make out.

    It's a pity we don't have the chance to watch the match so we can have a real picture ot the match tendences, but by checking the scoreboard I got to think that it's being totally dictated by the swiss.

    I guess PDorn wasn't able to keep up the same high level of play that he displayed in his first 5 matches. :(

    Congrats to Roger!

    I really would have loved to have seen this match just to see if it was Fed that was on fire or PDorn playing poorly.

    we looked today at two players that basically have the same set of shots and power

    however, Paradorn forced too much, played on the 5th speed all the time, and displayed both less physical and mental flexibility (i.e. inteligence) than Federer, which lead to him making too many errors

    but a great result and progression for the Thai

    Yup, that's what's always hurt Srichaphan his entire career - his lack of patience and going for too many winners too soon. I had thought that he had figured that part out this week with his impressive results and could maintain his new attitude and strategy in today's match with Fed. But I guess not. :(

    I think Federer had an easier draw than Nadal

    This American wants to know how easily "the swiss" beat "the thai" today.

    BTW, did you guys see match point in this match? Srichaphan basically threw in the towel and didn't even try to save match point. He kept putting up lobs from the baseline with Fed standing at the baseline hitting overheads off of the boonce like it was a practice session with PDorn just feeding him balls like he was Fed's coach or something. I think PDorn had a chance near the end of that point to go for a winner but he didn't even bother but elected to keep lobbing for the fun of it. I think someone needed to remind him that this is match point of the semifinal of a Masters event.

    It's at the end of the highlight clip on this site: http://www.atpmastersseries.tv/page/AtpLogin/IndianWells
