    Fed's second tourny in a row. Win is a win, have a feeling he's just warming up.

    Interesting Time In Mens' Tennis

    I think it will be very interesting to see how the other players respond to having someone who, on the whole, is significantly better than them (sure Marat got him in Melbourne but if they played 10 more times...). Will they do what it takes to close the gap? Or will they enjoy their millions, their hot girlfriends/wives/mistresses and just be content to be on Tour? And how will RF handle having the bullseye on his back? Will the pressure of the expectations get to him?

    Now if we could only get all the ladies healthy and focused on playing tennis...

    I'm kind of surprised of how many people took sets off Fed this week. Yes I know he still won them all but its not like him to lose a set to Ivan Ljubicic after clobbering Andre in straights.
