Yeah it's fun to read in hindsight but match was very heavy for me to watch while it happened. I almost wanted to vomit when Novak got broken for the 2nd time in the 5th set, just to laugh hysterically after he saved those CPs and broke back. Then that game at 11-11, from 40-0 up to BP for Federer and how Novak saved it by rushing the net... Insane match. I can't imagine how it felt to actually play it.
Fed was an idiot for not breaking there. It was his last chance to win the match. Got handed a way out on a silver platter but messed it up again

That's too harsh. He didn't have much angle and played hard to Novak's fh, which won him the points several times before in similar situations. This time Novak guessed and moved to cover the fh timely but still had to control very difficult volley. If Novak didn't move to cover the fh it would be a clean passing shot or almost impossible volley. It was not a perfect play choice in hindsight but that's faulty reasoning.

Very tense from start to finish, wasn't fun at all. Wanted to punch Novak through the screen when he smirked at 11-11 after saving a break point. Dude was smiling while I was shaking like an epileptic LOL.

I have no interest in rewatching it again. Except the 8-7 game and the final tiebreak maybe.

Agree 100%. I tried to watch a whole match again but couldn't do it. Watching it made me nervous as if they're still playing. Kept skipping the parts when Novak was passive and disinterested.

Not at the grass. The grass is an overview of Stan's worst surface, Wimbledon is the only GS tournament where Stan has not reached at least SF participation and is unlikely, that this fact to change in the future.
The grass could be described as the only current surface where Djoker was safe from Stanimal.
Djokovic isn't safe anywhere in a Slam against Stan. Not even grass. And Stan can play on grass. He just happens to lose in 5 sets to guys like Murray and Gasquet. Probably would've taken Djoker 5 sets to beat Stan at Wimbledon...if he could pull it off. Stan has no fear of the Djoker's game in Slams and that makes him a threat.

Stan can’t even make to Djokovic anymore. Therefore this is not even an issue going forward for Novak!

End of the road for Federer here. He's lucked his way this far, but Djokovic will give him the beatdown he is long overdue for. Djokovic in either 3 or 4 sets.
Fed in 5. The 5th set will be a serving clinic from Rog.
What a final to look forward too! I think fed has a good chance on that form, however hoping novaks level will be too much. It could go 5, I will say Novak in 5!
Federer in 3 pretty easy sets, unless he has a stinker where he throws one away like he did today. Should be a comfortable victory though today was the much more difficult task.
I'll go for Federer in 4 again. Have to believe!
The 2 best grass court players in the game today. What's not to like? If Djokovic forces Federer to play his grinding game then Nole in 4. Federer needs to be very aggressive especially on his return of serve and just go for it. Flip a coin to pick the winner. Hope it's a classic.
Federer breaks! Will serve for the match!
Holy Hell!
He's gonna do it!!
Cmon Federer, redline this.
Congrats to the great Federer fans out there. He was superb today. Enjoy.
oh man please dont do a Us Open 2011
40-15 on serve. Federer's "favorite" score. Missed one matchpoint already.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now THAT is a choke
This will be the worst loss i've ever seen.

This will be the worst if it happens.
