    Twice there in the 1st game he hit a flatter shot and that lead to an unforced error on Nadal's forehand. It's been happening a few times today and I believe it's due to that lack of height of the ball returned by Federer due to less topspin.

    Good to see Fed getting a couple first serves in. Keep it up!

    Fed's already broken, he's not as consistent as Hewitt and that will hurt him today. Hewitt's tactics and consistency bothered Nadal. Also, he wasn't terribly familiar with Hewitt's stroke patterns. Nadal just seems to intuitively know where Fed hits his shots.

    roger can not win if he keeps on making so many UFE''s...

    it just won't happen

    I almost get the feeling Nadal feels more comfort playing Fed than Hewitt.

    Fed's low first serve percentage is really hurting him lately. He needs to get it up.

    Federer has never been known for a good first serve percentage, but this is getting out of hand. He's averaging 40-50 in many of his matches.

    As much as I hate to say it, Federer's getting destroyed out there. Another break for Nadal to go up 2 breaks.

    Roger is just broken mentally. He might as well forfeit right now. He can't do anything with Nadal's topspin. He can't buy a 1st serve. His 2nd serve is of no help. He's broken.

    Federer is playing very badly today. Unforced errors everywhere and a few shanks as well :eek:

    Nadal is having Federer for breakfast.

    well I predicted 6-1, 6-2 Nadal. Might as well give Nadal the French title now. Federer won't even make the Final.

    Ugly. Haven't seen Fed play in awhile and it looks like he forgot how to serve. No easy points. Few first serves in.

    Looks like Nadal's really got his number.

    I think that every time Federer faces Nadal he gets sick to his stomach. 1-4 Nadal to serve. good god, this is a rout.

    I think for now on a lot of players are going to consider wearing long dark hair and a green T-shirt when they play Fed. Seems enough to make him pee in his pants.

    The Fed/Nadal horror show continues. It's one thing to predict Fed will have 2 winnres/12 UFEs, and another thing to see it unfolding like clockwork....

    Why call yourself a Fed fan as your screen name when you don't like Fed? Just doesn't make sense.
