Infuriating that Federer is moronically choosing the strategy of exchanging groundstrokes with Wawrinka on clay. If he continues with this, he's going down today. He has to take the game to Stan and shorten the points.
 
Holy cow waw doesn't give anything. Extremely clutch.

But I still Think Fed wins this. He is better out there IMO. I predicted a 4 set win.
 
You know what, Stan's fight has impressed me. Finally feel like he's recovered from being away. And he should only be getting better as the year goes on.

I'm a happy guy.

fed is being stubborn again. thinking he can go toe to toe with stan from the baseline like in the past. They're both different players now. That's not going to work anymore.
It's really a play to take advantage of Stan's fatigue and wear him down, not necessarily to win baseline battles.
 
Dammit, Fed!!!! Horrible BP conversion, as always!
I'd say the best break point conversion is usually from Novak. Both Fed and Nadal have been relatively poor.
They go timid on big points. With Djokovic, he gets bolder the bigger the point is. He makes sure the break point is on his racquet.
Fed is paying for his passive play just on the big points. Otherwise he is fine.
 
lol what a weird comment? to see fans commenting on a fed fan most and there are a lot, plus i thimnk i see a few non fed fans. as if novak fans are all over novak match posts. like you can save the fed devotee comments for another time
LOL, not sure why you're getting your knickers in such a twist icedevil. If anything what I said is a compliment - loyalty is a very commendable attribute.

Despite the fact that Federer's ground game is objectively better than ever, the supposed GOAT apparently has no chance of beating Wawrinka from the baseline. He needs to do some suicidal serve and volley on clay or he has no chance!
