Ouch, Nadal breaks right back.
****. Nadal broke back straight away. Fed still up 3-2.
Roger needs to stop wasting opportunities.
Breaker, can you tell how these 2 are playing? I am just watching the scores from internet thanks
It's a pity they don't show it on german television.
Nadal has been attacking Fed's backhand as usual with all of his shots and playing his normal game, nothing extraordinary at the moment. Federer's backhand is holding up pretty well though hitting pretty deep on most of his shots but of course when he drops a short ball Nadal immediately seizes the point. Hasn't been hitting great approaches either which resulted in his serve getting broken back.
Great approach and volley then unreturnable serve to go up 30-15.
Thank you Breaker. Now that's like being live there. keep it up.
Great serve, Nadal drops it short and Fed rips a forehand for 40-15. Nadal hits an error into the net for 4-3 Federer.
Roger holds his serve, now up 4-3, he needs to start attacking Nadal's second serve.
Haha no problem spreading the Fed/Nadal joy across the internet.
2nd serve, Fed hits it long 15-0
Thank you!! I see you from cincy.. nice place. i live in columbus
Fed hits a nice backhand to NAdal's forehand and Nadal hits and error for 15 all, then Nadal hits another error for 15-30.
That's what he should have done in the previous matches as well, shouldn't he?
Also he should try to get more to the net. It's risky, yes, but i think he has to take the risk in order to cut down the long rallies which suits only Nadal.
Haha yeah Cincy's not bad cool that you're from Ohio also.
Fed dumps a serve into the net, then dumps an approach into the net for 40-30.
Fed does NOTHING with a 169 kph serve and dumps it into the net 4 all
Fed attacks Nadal's backhand and finished the point with a nice high backhand volley 15-0
Fed keeps the ball deep constructs the point well then tries...a drop shot? COME ON?!?!?!
Oh and he dumped it into the net for 15 all, some nice scrambling against Federer but then Nadal uses his classic sharp angled inside out forehand for 15-30
Roger is in alot of trouble.
Serve/forehand bread and butter 30 all. Nice first serve unreturnable for 40-30
He needs to hold his damn serve.
Serve/forehand again for 5-4
... and he has hold his serve. 5-4
Hey Breaker. Would you say it's already a quality game?
I'm not able to watch this - how are they both playing??
Fed mishits return for 15-0
Inside out forehand after short ball from Nadal 15 all.
It's quality from Federer no question, Nadal making some unusual unforced so far he has the same as Federer which is surprising but overall good tennis from both. But if Fed drops his level AT ALL it's game over for him.
Ace from Nadal O.O can't say that very often 30 all
Forehand winner and loud VAMOS!!!!! for 40-30
C'mon Fed....soooo close to getting a 1-0 lead on him.
From the score it looks like it's a quality match.
Nice crosscourt approach to Fed's backhand followed by a precise volley to the open court to even it at 5 all.
Nadal dumps a slice into the net and then hits one wide for 30-0 Federer.
High topspin to Fed's backhand results in a huge miss by Federer 30-15/
Unreturnable 1st serve for 40-15
Heavy topspin again to the backhand and Fed hits it wide 40-30
man. this is intense...
Nice classic serve-approach-high backhand volley winner for Fed to pull back up 6-5.
has federer ever won the first set against nadal except at the dubai one?
Fed hits nice pass for 0-15 then terrible inside out miss for 15 all.
Nope never this would be foreign territory being ahead...
Nadal hits into the net for 15-30 pressure...
Federer hits his backhand late on a pretty easy shot, misses wide for 30 all.
Federer gets anxious and misses forehand long for 40-30
Roger just cant break Nadal, he better hope he wins this tie-breaker
what's the score? what's the score?
