Federer is feeling the heat.
He's not a Fed fan, he's just trying to instigate people against him.
Read my sig.
Mugger than Federer, but not a mug.
I knew him hanging out with Masha in SA was a bad choice. She gets around..
With that girly shoes, probably a guy.....:twisted:
We may be in the minority ... but I like the "new" Jo as coached by the aussie rasheed.
My post wasn't meant to be quoted though. Darn I need to figure out how to edit on this forum.
Tsonga keeps playing well. Fed can't seem to handle the pace of Tsonga's ground strokes too well atm. Who will take the 3rd?
He's like a sugar daddy to her.
A SugarPova daddy.
Federer gets ahead in the rallies, but won't go for the winner. Federer was 2 feet inside the baseline and rolled the FH crosscourt.
Fed not going up the line with his fh at all.
Bh and fh suck
Where is the federer of the 2 previous matches goddamnit
This is basically what you get when someone exploits Federer's backhand and serving good ofcourse.
Why isn't Federer going for any corners, just hits balls up the middle of the court...
I'd hit that too.
More likely the flu epidemic has caught up with Federer. He normally hardly sweats at all but he's been sweating a lot tonight.
Two or three next games are key
What kind of flu are you talking bout? Food related ?
He looks like he's going for the kiss, there
NOW I feel Tsonga is just beating Fed for pace, not like before with all the UE. Doesn't bode well for Fed.....
Whole set is key, not unlikely That can be a tiebreak.
Jo has won 9 of the 10 rallies that have been 10+ shots. Interesting.
Why are the commentators talking as if Tsonga has already won the match?
He hitting some good shots and he's solid on serve but he's too irratic to harm Fed.
livescorehunter isnt working un-vamos
That pretty much sums up Federer's level tonight. Everything pretty much sucks!
Federer is looking worried, that's the worst sign for me.
score my stream stopped came back up
Yeah, Fed is playing better now but Tsonga also raised his game.
Man. Federer just needs to keept his focus on the serve, and if he gets behind on the Tsonga serve relax. But Tsonga is serving really well this half of the set. Hoping Roger breaks him next game. 4-4.
not sure about the rules now, but it used to be that any new member could "edit" posts after having 50 total posts ... anyway, welcome!
I bet Murray is smiling right now.
Rattling through the games now. Tsonga's getting some aces off now.
4-4 15-0 Federer on serve
come on fed put this mug down in his right place
There's a flu epidemic right now all over the U.S. Maybe it's made its way over to Australia? Not food related.
If fed cant break him.. Take it to tiebreak atleast and finish him off
Tsonga and his 1hbh passing shots. lol
Murray's been dispatching clowns left and right all week long.
It's about time he plays someone that can give him a challenge.
LOL at commentators going to town on Tsonga's one hander.
Cahill: "Yeah he's got to get rid of that shot."
Brad Gilbert: "I HATE that shot!"
40-15 to Roger. He's serving better, seems to be biding his time. and he holds. 5-4 Roger, tiebreak fast approaching perhaps.
Federer isn't playing his best tennis here, we all know this, but he is still very well in this match. People are acting as if the end is near for Roger. Hmm.
Nadal serving for the title in Acapulco.
Now time.. Fed has to press up on tsonga service game...
Time for Roger to show everyone why he's the GOAT.
Not really. I think that Tsonga is holding form on BH, serving well & has a game plan. He is mixing well rather than just blasting, using all his talent not just 80%. People complain when the top 10 don't step up & challenge the top 4 & complain when they do.
Federer will have to play better but that is why it is a quarter finals time & if you are a real tennis fan, you must want these matches? Hope the match heats up & they both start playing well at the same time.The reality is the game has got too fast, it takes unbelievable movement to weather the shot-making if the other guy is hot. Players have to adapt, improve & I think RF has done that. Unfortunately for him, everybody else is getting better too!
I thought RF coming in has moved really well, think he looks really balanced moving forward. His serving always ebbs & flows when the returning is top quality. Roger's ball striking/obvious feel used to get him out of trouble...now the top guys are hitting it harder with more spin, he has had to learn to defend more. Not really the way for him to win, dictating matches was always his strength.
It was easier before...it is not just that he has lost a step, the other guys are getting better too. It still takes 2 players to make a great match.
Really glad for the game that these 2 are choosing to show why they are such great players.
I am not saying that this is a classic...yet.
Massive overreactions on this forum and in the commentating booth of EuroSport.
Wilander just said he's worried about Fed being blown away by Tsonga or something to that effect.
I just don't see it.
man ur sig is sick , i am huge fan of fed and i dont have hate against rafa sue me
Would Tsonga pose a threat after 5 sets with Federer?
