    Federer and the bagel

    Good topic …. Not many "top" players ( eating bagels ) in the single digits. Sampras had 9 and Roddick had 6 ( one of which was incurred by Federer in Aust Open 2007 match ) which is understandable

    Is anyone else a wee bit worried about Fed today?

    Very disappointed with Nadal

    Some of it appears to be Djok's excellent return of serve skills. Djok doesn't let Nadal win those short, one - two punch service points based on weak service returns that every other player succumbs to.

    There's a Fed Era and a Djokovic Era. No Nadal Era!
