On court :: Sexi rogi
Now watch Murray's fake flu virus just magically leave him.
Federer first serve % is ****e already.
i'm preparing my Fed excuses..
Fed getting pwned.
Gosh the poll is almost even although this place is overcrowded with Fed fans who say he will win anything.
Any stream links? I can't find any good ones.
Federer's been broken REMARKABLY often this week, if you compare it to the rest of the year.
come on people it was one game
http://www.hahasport.com/c-4.html This one is my favorite.
this is the best but doesn't work for all: http://espn.go.com/watchespn/player/_/source/espn3/id/594323/
this one is ok: http://www.vipboxsports.eu/tennis/8...federer-r-vs-murray-a-live-stream-online.html
Depends on weather. Windy and Murray wins easy. Still and Fed takes it more closely.
Of course, what did you expect?
yay! mumbleMuzza is in DA house!
Rog breaks back.
Murray to hold his back in 3...2...1..
is it my imagination, or muzza is going full offensive ?
Both guys haven`t been at their best this week on serve,so plenty of tough games are expected.One break is far from enough.
Got a feeling whoever wins this will get spanked by Djokovic in the final anyway.
Actually, 2008 was the season in which Fed turned 27 so the direct comparison with Nadal would be Rafa's 2013. However this is kinda of a moot point since Nadal is in his supposed massive decline since 2011 which would be akin to saying Fed has declined in 2006.
Regardless, it will be interesting to see yours and the stance of other experts on this forum when Nadal turns 30-31, will his presumed lack of success at that age be down to improved competition exposing near peak form Nadal or will Nadal age and decline in his abilities (unlike Fed of course)? Will definitely be interesting to see.
Actually Hewitt, Roddick and Safin are called clowns FAR more often on this forum than the younger generation of super Spartan warriors but regardless let's presume for the sake of the argument that Fed's peak is from 2004-2007 and prime 2003-2009, I urge you and other non-Fed fans (for the sake of objectivity) to give me peak and prime periods for the other members of current top 4 so we can see how they compare.
I mean people around here are so often are annoyed at Fed fans daring to cite 2004-2007 time-frame as the one in which Fed played at his personal best level of tennis but don't seem to mind that the other members of the top 4 can't seem to scrape together 4 years of peak tennis combined (if we go by the statements of their fans).
Why is it such a big issue for you (and others) that for example Fed fans cite 2004-2007 period as his best but don't mind the Nadal fans going, well Nadal's peak was middle of 2008 (he was still a baby on HC hence the losses to Tsonga and Murray), beginning of 2009 (after that he got injured), 2nd half of 2010 (remember he was losing to past their prime weak era clowns like Roddick and Ljubo before CC season) and all after that is massive decline.
Why is Federer just rolling the 1st serve?
what he is complaning about ? hHAHHA
Anyone else notice an extreme crowd bias towards Rog?
Fed saves a BP but holds. 2-1
Break now Rog
Not Extreme its total bias :twisted:
Yeah. When Murray's challenging a call they're shouting "OUT! OUT! OUT" (the ball is showed in) "Ahhh...."
Even though I'm rooting for Fed that error from Murray was a shame. Awesome return.
Has anyone else noticed this year that Federer seems to be more flexible? That stretch was almost Novak like.
Murray is just going to tee-off on everything it seems. Might work with some lucky line-clippers. Also, @Fastpace, of course the crowd is pro-Fed. Outside of Mallorca, the whole world loves him.
That's what I was thinking. Not bad for Grandpa Fed.
why are all the calls sound late?
Yeah, for real. I like both these players, but the crowd reactions are bordering on rude during the challenges. I mean I know they are excited but, :shock:
Oh **** that was gorgeous.
Awesomeeeeeeeeeeee shott by Sexi 2-1 (30-30)
i love me some of THAT Fed!
how much mph did it say for that Fed backhand? It looked like 130 something for a moment. never mind it was probably kmh
Had Murray challenge that serve at 30-0 it would've been 40-0, right now it's 30-30 instead
I think it was something like 140 km/h.
yeah that would make more sense
poor Murray can barely move with his flu... what a shame..
could have been a great match.
I think Fed's not playing bad this week. He's just broken really often. In the spring and summer he was barely broken, and now every game is a dogfight it seems.
wow 3 double faults already?
That's been happening too much recently.
wow 3 double faults in a row, 4 total so far. wtf Feddy
What the f**k is Federer doing? 3 double faults in a row.
What a terrible service game
