But hasn't that literally been the case when these two played the last 5 or 6 years? The key to Federer beating Djokovic is keeping the points short. He just hit 26 winners in one set so sorry if I don't want to hear about how bad he's playing/moving.Novak is 16-6 with points won over 5 shots so far... 0-4 shots it's Fed 18-5. Anytime Novak has moved Fed, he's generally won the rally.
He didn't pull me in this time. Even a bagel for fed in first set couldn't convince me he could win this one.And we thought Federer fans disliked Djokovic before lol... rough. That set was such a microcosm of the state of Federer nation. Start with low expectations due to age/condition, Roger pulls you in and you begin to believe, only for a kick to the nuts ending.
Of some note, Novak crawls ever closer to Roger for the all-time tiebreak win % record.
And then totally collapsed because hitting winners left and right for longer than 30 minutes is super easy and will probably lose the next two sets 6-2 6-2 because that's what fit players usually do.He just hit around 30 winners in one set. LMAO, that is what every injured player does.
U r srly not comparing sandgren to nole ste you? Fed needed that first setLmfao at all the posts saying "I'm out" or "I'm done" I mean... you're probably right lol but at least try an support your player till the end. It's only 1 set afterall and we all watched what happened against Sandgren.
2011 was worse. You can excuse everything from Roger today, he is hurting. In 2011 Roger had set point and he still could not even get it to a tiebreak when the king of clay decided to stop toying with him.This was on par, if not worse than the 1st set against Nadal in RG2011
