I thought Federer is S&V player, not a boring baseline bot like Joe Kovic and Nadal
His first forehand after a good serve is just as good a finisher as a volley, but the difference is that if the serve isn’t perfect he still has a chance to construct the point if he stays back. So S&V makes no sense apart from looking variable for its own sake.

Have to say Fed’s game looks really vulnerable once his serve deserts him. And it looks like he always shanks at the most important time too

Zeverv can’t miss a serve today

So much for a fast hard court GOAT to lose to Tsitsipas, Rublev and Zverev on fast hard courts. So who benefits from slowing down, huh?
 
Same as always. Reading the comments form Federer fans and @Yugram one might think Federer is like 6-1 5-1 down right now. But the truth is he is leading in the second set, and still the big favorite to win the match. (yes, we know Zverev can start choking at any moment)

The courts aren't as lightning fast as Ao 17&18 na????? Hence the less talented player is winning . Such a shameful hypocrisy that was I ever heard
 
This is the final nail in Federers Goffin
Federer is the king of winning matches where he plays terrible tennis. Somehow 99% of the players are just too afraid to beat him no matter what. Even Djokovic is much more vulnerable against the field right now.

Wow first time I see Fed ever tank a point. That serve of Zeverv looked so out

His first serve must be above 80% tonight. Impossible to beat when you don’t have your own serve

Funny how these noobs think they are actually worth something because they beat a 38-year old Federer. Keep thinking that, losers.
