Too much talking
Shut UP, Dick and Patrick!
Hey there to LA, I hope to visit LA one day...
No doubt that Fed is struggling!
Too many errors by Marcos and Fed breaks to equalise.
Stick around. I think Federer will get this set. He knows he can't allow Marcos go 2-0 up.
Fed throwing a little more than power at Baggy now....think he might have figured it out???
Marcos having chances to break but losing that third game might be the turning point. Roger should win the set from here.
U think maybe this is where Fed kicks in to a higher gear?
yeah fed 3-2 40-15
Nice serving from Marcos and he makes it 3-3.
Easy game by Fed. 4-3
I like your optimism
Despite some errors Marcos manages to keep his serve.
Roger is finally finding his range. Couple of easy service games. Nice serving by Bags. Looks like we're headed to a tie-breaker.
I'm with Bags you know. :mrgreen:
I thought Fed would dominate more easily in this set but Marcos refuses to let go.
This is where Bags needs to sac-up.
5-5 and Marcos is still in with a chance of grabbing this set!
Bags is getting 60% first serves in, and he's winning 80% of those points.
Bags 7-5, 5-5
What a great rally for 0-30!
Fed is trying to win with consistency at 5-5.
That serve was in!
Down the line winner from Bags, he's winning the longer rallies. 5-5 second set, deuce on Roger's serve.
Marcos fought it but in the end Roger's serve won him the game. 6-5 Fed.
Nine aces from Fed. 6-5 second set, down a set.
Federer leads 6-5 in the second. Baghdatis continues to play well, and Federer continues to play well enough to just stay out of trouble.
I can't believe I'm up this late, but this is REALLY good. What a great game. These rallies are outstanding.
This guy is tough! His serve and forehand reminds me of PS, not the style, but very effective.
The last time I was dissapointed so bad was when Sampras lost against Hewitt and Safin in the finals of the US Open. I don't want to feel that way again for today!!
Marcos needs to start hitting more of those first serves cause Fed looks determined and comes down to the net more often now.
Fed is hitting them deep. One more point for the set.
1 set each.
Shame, marcos was 40-0 up and he lost it.
Still, as i had predicted Fed won this set. Happy rilokiley?
Oops, wrote that too early. Bags misses several 1st serves and loses the set. Phew, for a while, I thought he might win in straight sets. Roger stepped up when it mattered.
Gutsy call by the ump and he got it right. Looks like Bag is rushing his first serves.
YESSSSSSSS! Fed wins 2nd set!!!! What a clutch!!!!
But you've got to think when is Bags going to fatigue? I mean how much tennis has he played. And Fed is making him move a lot. But I can't believe how flat and uninspired Fed is playing. He lacks his usual explosive style.
He is. He's realised that he can go more often to the net and finish the points.
YEAH C'mon!!! Best of 3 now!!!
Bags 1st serve % is dipping and it's the 1st break
I don't think Marcos can do it without his first serve. And he misplaces some very easy shots. He needs this set cause i'm not sure Fed will allow him to make it 2-2 later on.
Two consecutive sloppy games from Bags. Roger aggressive and up a break in the 3rd.
I think is starting to get a bead on Marcos. Going deep and lengthening the rallies to wait for the unforced error and to take out his legs.
Marcos will still get some spectacular line plays though.
Yeah, great call on such a crucial point!
Baggy is looking quite tired now.
Fed still has the mental strength to press on. That can serve to intimidate baggy.
Marcos needs the break now
Nope, nice serve by Fed and he seems to be firmly in control now...3-0
Wow, down the line backhand winner! He was really stepping on the accelerator on that rally!
Rog holds serve. Damn, it was quite close in the first set. But as I was just telling a friend, though Rog lost the 1st set, he will never let that get him down.
Fed now up 3-0 in the 3rd set.
I think the young Cypriot is a little hungry. GIVE 'EM a BAGEL FED! lol
Tough break for BaghDaddy losing that 2nd set, and now (like BG predicted...), Federer is control. I like MB's chances to come right back though, and get the break back to go back on serve.
Marcos is finding out what its like to ACTUALLY play Roger Federer now, this is more like what he expected...
Monster cross court pass to start the game by Fed!
