Federer and Coria spoiler

they play on centre court without the top off. chilly but no wind at all. great conditions. I just got to work after watching it live on the tennis channel. federer played really well. the shot that surprises me it the running crosscourt forehand. after a few backhand exchanges, in which federer's backhand has improved bunches, coria would could a great shot down the line. federer would defensive into offensive with his running crosscourt forehand. lunging and on the dead run. this was hit for clean winners several times and if it didn't make a winner it put coria completely on the defensive and fed would win on the next point. look out for the french. seriously.

The exact exchange Lendl made a career of. (And to a lesser extent, pre-S&V Sampras.)

wasn't lendl's coach toni roach before fed and rafter? i thought I heard that today from the commentators.
Yes, you are completely right. Tony Roche was Lendl's coach from the mid-80's on, and it is possible that he has had similar influence on Federer's playbook.

A man collapsed in the stands. It was a 5min break but fortunately, he's ok.

Yeah, I think it was an older guy? Good that he's ok now.

Sounded like an intense match!! Too bad it's not on ESPN.

Gotta wait till the French. Oh well. ;)

Hey RickN, is there any way you could let me use your avatar pick for my avatar?

I've looked for one small enough elsewhere and I can't find one.

Yep, older guy. The commentator said that he was a diabetic, probably had low sugar levels from Coria's line judgments. :)

You want the exact same avatar as me?! Just find your favorite Fedex pic, use Photoshop to resize and you'll have an avatar as well.
