The crowd really sucks at Wimbledon. I mean it's 99% Federer. This is really UNFAIR IMO. These guys are NOT tennis fans. Cheering the UFEs of a player. Super pathetic.

Djokovic has won the title 4 times and is world #1. Surely he deserves some respect. Crazy Brits.

I hope Djokovic wins in 5 for that very reason. A big FU to the crowd.

I. Love. The. Wimbledon. Crowd.

I have sat in that court. It’s incredible. But even if djoker wins he’ll forever know they like Fed 100% more.
 
Will Fed end up like Roddick in Wimbledon 2009? There's actually a lot of similarities. Fed won two tiebreaks and couldn't break serve, similar to Novak in this match.

I am still on cloud 9 he beat Rafa, I expected a loss here in four. He's played and served brilliantly except.... in the clutch moments. He's been this way for years now, he's 38, what does anyone expect?
I think people don't know what to expect from him so they just assume the best and that he's still going to blow our minds. I remember watching the 2017 Australian open final and how big that win was and if it would be his last hurrah and yet here we are 2 years later and he's still making slam finals AND he's just broken Djokovic to possibly take this to 5 sets. Ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.

Fed fans you gotta hold your emotions in match thread. How can you idolise a player and then trash him so hard once he’s losing. The match is still alive!
LOL - There is one who is having a going at me, he doesn't understand what a grave mistake he has made by what he posted.... :)
 
When you think about it. Federer outlasting Djokovic in 5 at Wimbledon seems just right for his last behest grand slam act. Doesn’t it?

Fast forward 20 mins... 6-4 to Djok in the 4th

Only reason Fed is playing well now is because he has nothing to lose. As soon as theres pressure, he will lose serve once again

You have to laugh at the irony. All this fuss about making grass slower so there that the serve isn't everything, yet already two TBs. Except for set 2, which was just a tank, it's all about holding serve. Not so different scoreline from Sampras/Ivanisevic. The look may be totally different, but the result is about the same. It's the one thing I prefer about clay tennis. There is more drama re breaks in clay. Just one break will probably settle this set too. If not another TB. Imagine this match in the old days, when you had to win every set by 2 games. They would be playing until someone had to call paramedics.
Think that has more to do with both of Fedovic being slower and returning worse. It's not exactly a high quality match.

People rag on Sampras-Goran but I re-watched their 1995 semi recently and really enjoyed the match. It wasn't just serving, there were plenty of cat and mouse play, return winners, volleys, half-volleys etc.

Loving the net play from Federer there, thought the approach was too middle of the court but got away with it.

Can’t help but agree with the first part. swinging a lot cleanly now. Like in 2017. But I don’t think he will Choke. At least I hope he doesn’t.

Maybe if he didn't play mashed potatoes all the time he'd have more fans. I liked him way more in 2007-2008.
