Oh Roger.

I guess Tsitsipas was probably the better player in the first, so the score is not totally unfair on the whole.

But all those break points ...

Tsitsipas had no right winning that set really,but he played a good tb and was very good on the bps. Good stuff from the youngster,will be interesting 3rd set

I don’t want to sound too pessimistic, but the similarities to the Millman match are glaring. I mean in regards of the missed opportunities and the development of the score. The quality of the match itself is clearly much higher today.

wow...tstisi got the 2nd set...

federer2019 ao compared to federer2017 ao isn´t that good, because he is not so agressive. the unforced errors he made in 2017 too, but he hits lots of more winner...

the quarter of federer got now....tired RBA, tired tsitsipas and a federer who must planger longer than he wants...

tiafoe and nadal will like it.

Yup totally agree, Tsits might be the #NextGen player I can really get behind.
Yup. I'm going to bed. I'll find out the rest of the story tomorrow, after I get some sleep. It's 5:30 AM here. I stayed up for all 5 sets for the final of 2017, not going to do that again. Either Fed rights the ship or Tsits deserves to win. I just hope whoever wins has enough energy for the next match. Though I have to wager that Fed is due for a bunch of converted BPs soon.

This is incredible man.

RG2014 4R - Fed has set points for a two sets to love lead, loses the set and loses that match.
USO2018 4R - Fed has set points for a two sets to love lead, loses the set and loses that match.

This is a fourth round and the exact same has happened, whether he wins or not we’ll see.

Nothing against you man but when someone who chose a username and consistently posts with the specific goal of antagonizing people says that you've failed, it means you've done the exact opposite.
You seem severely confused. I'm sorry that my posts upset you but my goal is never to antagonize. The truth is you are simply not a Federer fan and your venom directed at him in this thread is disgusting.

classic Fed that set. Losing that set greatly decreases his chances of winning this tournament since this match is going 4 hours at least.
I think the opposite. Now that Cilic is out and B. Agut will likely be tired from all his matches, if Fed has any shot of winning he needs a stern test before possibly facing Rafa, let alone Novak. I'm still firmly of the belief that Fed got through that AO 2017 final because he was battle tested.

So personally I think this will only help if he manages to get through this one.
