no what is a shame is all the freakin complaining....jeeesh, the match has not even begun and already.......

tsk tsk..
"all the freakin complaining"? Relax. It is not my problem if you have not been watching the other matches and if your tolerance for lame commentary is higher.

fed down 15-30 in his first service game, and already the crowd are clapping encouragement for him. that's interesting. i guess they want to give him as much help as possible right from the get-go.

john seems to think that the warm conditions and dry court will hurt fed's chances. but i doubt that a damp court would be any better for him.

odd that during yesterday's women's final none of the commentators would say "adidas" (when talking about ivanovic's coach) . . . but it takes them only until the second game today to say "nike."

Federer is also aiming for Nadal's backhand, but Nadal is just running around it most of the time. =S errors on both of them too

Federer leads 2-1
 
Fed looks really shaky so far. I hope he shakes off these nerves. His last return game was pathetic. Nadal is a mediocre server and so he should and he should be returning it forecfully and securely.

Federer is not playing aggressive enough. The weather seems to be favoring Nadal and if Fed f***s this up, I'm going to be pretty upset.

The BH still looks inconsistent to me.... Fed's I mean obviously

fed attacks some returns and gets to 15-40. then he sits back and nadal wins the four points. he doesn't need tony roche to tell him what the pattern is, does he?

its the conditions guys it's different from hamburg now, its hard to attack a ball that's above your shoulders on your backhand, even for fed.
