no, he wasn't ....

the 3rd set in the final wasn't as close as the score suggests ... federer missed a sitter forehand on a BP , otherwise it wouldn't have gone to a TB ....

roddick had a SP in the first set in the semi .... federer won both TBs comfortably vs phillippoussis ...

both roddick and phillippoussis were playing at a similar level that wimbledon and it would have been a close match ..
