Comments :

1. Federer went up a break in the 1st set, then got broken back with a sloppy service game. Then broke again to take the set.
Played well, nalby was decentish in this set.
You could see flashes of why Nalby could trouble federer (or anyone else) when playing well and the respect Federer had for him.

2. Second set, federer was near flawless, nalby was below par.

3. Nalby's serving wasn't upto par and Federer was ruthless in punishing him for it.
His success on 2nd serve (3/16) is one of the lowest I've seen.
Even first serve wasn't spared. (55% success rate for Nalby). Nalby's 1st serve wasn't that good in the 2nd set in particular, but still Federer returned really well (including getting back some well placed 1st serves)

4. All in all, arguably, Federer's most dominant performance vs Nalbandian.

5. Commentators mentioning that Nalby was drained from the draw until then -- it was true.

7-5 vs Benneteau in the 3rd set, 7-5 vs Henman in the 3rd set, 7-6 vs Safin in the 3rd set.

I watched this match not too long ago. Very solid win over a jaded opponent. David looked very sluggish in his movement and his tactical awareness seemed off in the 2nd. I thought Fed playing quite within himself, worked the points a lot, poor David lol... Fed was all over his serve.
