Federer looks the favorite to win the title, now that Novak is out. To me it is unbelievable how well he is still playing almost 38 years old.

I think this is a new trend in tennis - of old champions. Next thing you know, you might see Novak winning slams and playing well 5-6 years from now.
The GS records are no longer safe with such long careers. I bet Fed is very cognizant of that.

Fed really hitting his Fh in that point.
Hubert defending really well. Misses the I/o fh though.

next point,Lobs fed successfully for 2nd time, hmm .
Also Fed looks just as good to this stage as in IW 2017. It's not there yet overall as he has to keep it up to win the title and that's no guarantee, and I'm sure a match vs Nadal can go either way.

But yeah - colour me impressed.

What's the last time Fed lost to a tall dude who can't rally well enough on a HC? Does Kokkinakis qualify or do we have to go further back. Seems Fed only potentially struggles vs players who can potentially rally.
