Hats off too Nalbandian for taking a set but u knew that Fed was gonna take it up a gear, no matter what Nalbandian did.

I just hope that Roger has a better match in his next match, hope he starts out more better.
Yeah. We don't need the freaking drama and people getting all excited thinking Fed will lose! Still this 3 setter is really short (88 min) so big deal. I think Fed was just nervous in the 1st set.

If you look at the stats then you will notice that Nalby was serving worst in the 1st set. So obviously it was Fed who raised his game and not other way around.

the match is a disappointment in the last 2 sets.

this is probably due to the round robin format. he doesn't have to beat Fed to go through.

The stats? Did you see the match?
No, it wasn't "obviously"
No, Federer wasn't nervous on the 1st set. Nalbandian OUTPLAYED him, specially off the backhand, and the retun of serve.
And then, Federer clicked, raised his game, Nalbandian got frustrated with his serve, and never fought back.

What's the unforced errors count in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd for Fed?

Here is what Eurosport says:

Federer was 61% on first serve with 9 aces, one double-fault, 30 winners, 17 unforced errors and a brilliant 6-for-7 on break chances. Nalbandian, contrastingly, was 51% on first serve with 0 aces, a killer 8 double-faults, only 12 winners, a devestating 30 unforced errors, and 3-for-5 on break chances.

I wish I had breakdown for each set so I can figure out why Fed won so easily even thou Nalby was serving better in 2nd and 3rd. It seems unusual that Fed couldn't take advantage of 38% 1st serve in the 1st set from Nalby but then had no problem at all in 2nd and 3rd set when David served at 60%. The double faults distribution was 3,3,2 per set.

this is so frustrating...i mean this happens thru live streaming on tvu player and sopcast, but its sort of understandable because its free, and you're technically not supposed to be allowed to view it

but i paid $5 for this, and its even worse than tvu player! i might as well watch espn2 thru tvu player tomorrow night and i'll see movement on the screen!

The double faults distribution was 3,3,2 per set.
Federer won 17% of the points off his 2nd serve in the first set, and David won that very same 17% off his first serve in the 2nd, despite serving at 60%. He wasn't sharp with his serve in the 2nd and third, no penetration, no speed. In the first set, David CRUSHED Fed's 2nd serve... and that tendency reverted later on the match.

Fed broke once out of two chances on the 1st set, David broke 2/3.

Roddick was right about one thing - Red Group is the Group of Death. You have to win your first match for any hope of going to the semifinal.

Naah, he got tired from training with Mirka.
 
One thing that makes this $5 streaming video worth it is the live coverage of the Doubles, which ESPN decided Not to show. If you have Comcast cable modem, it works out pretty well....
