Are you drunk?
 
Honestly don't care how Fed is playing. All Fed has to do is make sure the serve, FH and BH are decently tuned enough to take the fight to Wimbledon.

it almost seemed like fed was daring him to chase it down again

looked very stubborn to me
It was classic stubborn Fed. He's done that many times in his career. It's easy to criticize though because we only do it when it doesn't work. That approach has probably worked out for him many more times than it hasn't.
 
I dont think he is tanking, after seeing a few matches, Miami Tennis Courts are a little different, Djokovic double faulted in his match yesterday 3 times , Federer will adjust his game and get back on track

Cheers

Is this surprising though. It's the same scenario as last year for one, and for another I was more surprised that he was even playing Miami after winning Dubai and making the F in IW.
Last year I figured he was just in a bad headspace after IW, which is why he immediately lost another deciding set TB. But he looked fine to start the match.

This year he's looking lackadaisical from the get-go.

Last year he won AO and Rotterdam and made the IW final so he could have been tired rather than in a bad headspace

FWIW, I'm not surprised, and I don't even think he should be playing here, but he definitely should not lose to this guy. Kokkinakis I sort of understand. Big guy with a few weapons and all that, but Radu Albot? All respect to the guy but he's like a poor man's Schwartzman. He scrambles well and is solid enough, but he has no weapons.
 
I thought Albot was a dangerous first opponent. Ranking obviously on the rise (would have gotten direct entry now I think?), went through qualifying, won his first match as well. Dangerous if Roger is still finding his game on this court, and so it's proved.

Will have to see whether he can serve it out.
