His running FH retrieval rates were better than an average Fed day on tour, sure he's not at his fastest but it was nowhere 'really uncomfortable' territory.
Forehand seems to be working well. But this is again fast hard court against not so great defender. Better test would be someone like Djokovic/Murray/Monfils on slower court.

how could this guy be 35 years old?!?

I have to say. I'm liking his movement. As a fed fan I was preparing myself to a new Fed who could not compete. There is nothing wrong with his game. wtf!!!

Fed with a tentative backhand, breaks for 4-2. Nice returns of serve from Fed, though Alex's placement can be better. Typical Alex really.

fder served BP with a big serve, what, three times in a row?

Some serious ballbashing going on. Zverev's pace is enough to bother Freddie somewhat.

5–2, good start to the comeback

Wow, graph showing how much often Feder finds the lines on first serves than zvrv — #AccuracyTrumpsPace

Zvrv is within two feet of the lines on both sides 51% of the time; Fed makes it 67% and 70%..

Ugh, serious rust showing now. Two doubles in the tiebreak, and then misses the routine forehand put-away.

Zverev running away with the first suddenly.

Zverev will draw confidence from this. Federer going to find it hard to keep up with the pace of those groundies.

I think Federer is choking. What do you think? ;)
feder is a known choker, this is a fact.




No, he was saving three consecutive breakpoints with aces/service winners earlier in the set. Just the machinery not running smoothly throughout due to no match-play.

Yeah he's just missing a bit of intensity, not had to focus like this on every point in a match scenario for a while. Game looks solid enough.

Federer looks amazingly good in this match conidering how long he's been off the court. Zverev is much improved since their last encounter.

Definitely feel like Federer can back inside the top 10 at least. Fingers crossed for top 5 level of play by Wimbledon.
