Why does Fed make so many unforced errors? Its like he can't hit a decent FH anymore.
Sort of a trend with Fed over the last 4 to 5 years...

Difference in recent months is that he adjusts during the match and has fewer errors towards the latter stages, once he realizes that he can't win if he continues to be that overly aggressive.

Just give him time, he'll wake up. Maybe he shouldn't come forward quite as often as he is, although that first point wasn't bad.
 
Lot of errors from Federer.. I think he realizes that he will be up against it in a long match and tried to hit Murray off the court in the first set... He did not seem patient enough.. It is a risky strategy and has not paid off.. In the meanwhile, Murray is hitting some monster Forehads, they hvae gone in and therefore the scoreline..

I could tell just from how he angled his racquet that it was going in the net. Yuck.

I fully expected Fed to lose the 1st set - he will need more time to get into this match especially after the strenuous SF match.
 
Seriously, those of u already throwing in the towel in the FIRST set need to turn in your Fed Fanclub Membership cards. What a bunch of whiny sissies.

Murray not playing as well as he did the WB final, but fed's shot selection this set was just 0.o....

Im mystified the decisions he made some pts.

good news is, he can only get better.
