Andrew yes novak's level dropped dramatically in the third set, but he is a notorious streaky player who has a tendency to lose focus during matches. So you really can't say Fed caught some soet of break, Fed has always said the Djoker is streaky and you just have to keep hanging in. There was tremendous pressure on Fed in this match. To lose his hometown tournament twice in a row to Djoker would have been hard to swallow. The question now is can he beat Murray or Rafa.

I am not a tennis pro si Iwould appreciate an education.The great Nadal is an amazing athlete and a wonderful role model and person. But is it usual for a player to increase his serve by 10-15 MPH through a new found grip change?

Djokovitch is a great player but still a bit streaky within the match itself which can cost him. One bad patch on your serve at this level and you are really in a hole. That's what cost him against Fed in Shanghai. Murray generally gives you no free points which is why Fed beat Nole and lost to Murray. Murray won almost all the extended baseline rallies against Fed. If anyone other than Rafa wins a slam next year it will be Murray.

Since Annacone, it is clear that Roger is attacking on his return of serve, especially on the second serve of his opponent. He is no longer just chipping the ball back. He is also trying to flatten out his backhand to try to make it more offensive. It looked like Fed really wanted to win this match for his confidence. A Soderling-Djoker Murray trifecta would done wonders for his confidence. I think Roger is still capable of beating everyone going into 2011 except Djoker and Murray(Rafa beats everyone now especially with his 10-15 mph grip change serve).

Andy played amazing today when Roger had break points. Andy is capable of beating anyone when he plays at this level. For some reason,he has not been consistent enough to do it at a GS yet. I thought Roger actually played very well today, it's just that today Murray was too good. Unforced errors stat can be misleading. Sometimes they are a result of a player trying to do too much because the other player is hitting so well. Like Fed said, Murray made the target very small.

Joker Fed tomorrow in a true popcorn match. Both are in good form and highly motivated. Roger wants No. 2 back and revenge for US Open and Joker wants to try to establish dominance over Fed. Now we will see if Fed is a notch below the best or is still in the super elite. I am sure he does not want to lose to Joker in 2 straight major events. A LOT of pressure on Fed.

Unfortunately, Roger's reflexes have slowed just enough to get blasted off the Court by the big hitters. It's not injury. Roger cannot break big servers because (i) he is behind and his service returns are short; and (ii) once he loses control of the point he cannot get it back. It's over everyone. Don't waste energy rooting against Rafa. He is just entering his prime. And dont blame Murray. he played great against Rafa. Rafa is just too good.

Murray is great, just born at the wrong time. Rafa and Roger are the best players of all time. Rafa has too much return power and topspin for Berd and will move him all over the court and win easy. Rafa will also win the US Open. He will be Goat when he was done. Scary thing is that he is just entering his prime. Tell me, who will beat him in the next 4 years?????

Cut murray some slack Rafa and Roger are the greatest players of all time. Murray will win a GS as long as he does not have to face rafa along the way. King roger is fading and murray has many years left. Rafa will winn Wimby and US Open and by the time he is done will be goat. He will have close to or as many GS's than Roger, more titles and the H2H.
