Even Pete himself said that he was playing good enough to win the title, he was serving nothing worse than in the previous editions, Federer just kept himself in the match and didn't choke in the end like Ivanisevic.
Btw LOOOL at Roddick being the "heavy favorite" to beat Ivanisevic at Wimbledon in 2001. Where did you got that info from? Your a**?
You do understand that Goran was actually an underdog in that match right? I wouldn't say he was a heavy underdog, but Roddick was considered a favorite by sheer virtue of ranking and form going in.
