I'll go with Roger. I think the thing about the O semifinal was not just the length but that Roger was serving behind for that entire last set and that must have taken a lot out of him.

Today Roger was lucky to serve first in the final set. Damn, there were moments when he was almost going to close out 6-2 and those when Jo was a point or so short of 4-5 and then would have served to make it 5-5. I had all kinds of demons going through my head (from the past), wonder how it was with Old Wodgie.
