Thank you, amazing ovation.
How arrogant of Federer... letting the crowd applaud his 100th final.
The end of year finals are so much more impressive to win because of the fatigue of playing for 10 months saying Federer should have had to beat Murray Djokovic and nadal who he beat handily isn't fair considering they had an opportunity to make it to a point where they would play him they just couldn't cuz their younger legs let them down...
Yeah. Looks like the young fellas maxed themselves out during the regular season to be at the top of the pile. Throws up an interesting scenario for next year though. Fed looks fresh and playing better than he has in a while or at least more consistently well. If he follows the same regime and is at the same level,are the other guys going to be able to put in the same pre season training that they did last year to get back to the the top? Can their bodies handle it or have we reached the physical limit with regards to tennis players and their maximum potential?
I must have missed the special pass that put Roger directly into the finals. Actually, they offered those same passes to Murray, Djokovic and Nadal but they were either too injured, too mentally fatigued or lacking in motivation to take them. Oh those youngsters, they don't make them like they used to.
Yaaaay Roger! Glad to hear that David F put up a fight.
How does 100 finals rank in the record books..?
Just once, I would like to see people stop drawing arbitrary lines and admit the truth: it is a credit to Federer that he is able to perform this well this late in the season and say relatively injury/fatigue/unmotivated-free vs. the other top players....and that is a demerit to the rest of the top 4 that they haven't been able to do what Federer has. They all have their credits -- Djokovic his all-time great season, Nadal his FO, Murray whatever got him to #4 -- but lets be fair here.
I'm sure you don't like Nadal's lone USO win in which he didn't face Federer, or Jokers AO 2008 , or Nadal's WO win over Fed, etc etc for similar reasons.
Nadal better get his motivation back soon.
