How will that change, if at all, how Fedal play their match?
Contrary to popular belief, I think Fed plays better under pressure than Djokodal, they just have more stamina, that's why Fed starts to make mistakes, either gets tired or is afraid of being tired, so he goes for too much. So, this means for both of them this basically becomes a final and this favours Federer mentally. Remember, in all finals Fed did better vs Rafa than he did in semis.

That's why on fast courts in bo3, he has no issues versus anyone, since stamina is not the problem.

45 shot rallies? On Wimbledon center court? No way Djokovic loses here Sunday. I do have to say that nothing stood out in today's match vs RBA. He doesn't look like the error free machine we are so used to seeing. Was huffing and puffing towards the end, lacked his usual finesse too. I think it isn't going to be as straightforward a win.

So what, still probably good enough for those old timers Rafa and Freddy on this terrible slow grass.
