But it wasn’t earned for Federer!
Agreed. So the fans aren’t rooting for the guy who “earns” the points. They are rooting for the guy they like.
Again, this isn’t that hard.
And yeah, Federer barely earned his break either. He’s been playing like crap throughout. Millman just played like a little more crap in the game Federer broke.

Yesterday was the first time in my life I’ve heard the name Millman and I’ve been watching tennis since 1986

Federer challenged a net cord shot and would've still held his hand up in apology to Milman if he won the challenge. Peak tennis fakery.

What the... Last time I checked Federer was up 6-3 5-3, now Millman is up two sets to one?

IKR. I think he's a local teaching pro that inexplicably won 73 matches in the past 6 weeks to qualify for the US Open.

Federer’s cross-court forehand has been shocking bad these last 5-6 tournaments.
Everything except maybe the serve has been shocking bad since IW. He's hit the worst slices he's hit since he was 5 years old. I'm not kidding. He can't keep 3 straight rally balls in the court, and he plays points at 7-7 in a TB like they're 1-1 40-0 in the first set.

There's just no emotion from him. This is just a summation of the Federer game (or complete lack thereof) though. Millman has played a great match by his standards, and he won't get tight as long as Federer keeps missing every 2nd shot.
