As much as I love watching Fed play with grace, it just looks a little effortless at times. I want him to be challenged and then he can be as arrogant as he likes with his gold wimbledon attire etc. :p:

I think someone's forgetting Fed getting beat by Nadal in two consecutive French Open finals, also let's not go forgetting how much of a challenge Fed faced in this years Wimbledon final, yet again, against Nadal. Evidently, Fed does have at least one genuine challenger in the mens game, and that surely has to be from Rafa Nadal. People seem to forget this all too easily. The way Fed was challenged at SW19 this year, but came back in the final set - he won a match that Nadal should have won, and that shows greatness. Nadal has a few break points in the early stages of that fifth set, had he taken one of these, there'd have been a good chance Nadal would have taken the title. As it was....

not to mention the fact that nadal has the mkentality of a soldier and never givesa up on a point never mind a match. His mind and particularly his concentration is incredible and whats more his game pplays to feds weakness which Economist can bang on about

I stopped watching the match after it was 2-2 in the third set and Roddick went on to completely throw that set away? Wow!!

Disappointed for Roddick That was probably up there with one of his best performances against Federer!

Good match I just watched it. Roddick played very well the first 2 sets, completely blew it in the 3rd though, I think he had given up.

Am I the only person who gets pissed off at how much that woman commentator on Sky sports goes on about how great Venus Williams is? Even when she was like 4-1 down in the first set or something :mad:.

She does get on my nerves a bit too!! :hmpf: She can give credit where it's due, but all the time, gets a bit tiresome.

I know Fed gets challenged but to be honest it's only Rafa and that's only on two surfaces. Perhaps Novak could be moving up to be a serious competitor...

No, Sam Smith is completely clueless it seems. She claimed Djokovic was going to retire against Monaco because of his bad body language, when it's apparent to anyone who watches tennis occassionally that Djokovic's body language is often like that

It was if Jankovic was a complete noname against Venus according to her, when she's world number 3

Solid performance from Ferrer, the only way Chela was going to win was through Ferrer errors but that never looked like happening

Just watching some of the Moya v Djokovic game, neither is playing that well but I would fancy both to beat Ferrer. Fed looking good for another title, he has a 9-0 head to head against semi final opponment Davydenko.

If Henin puts out both Williams' sisters I may have to send her a Christmas card.

Also, that bloody woman is commentating, I swear she won't be far from 'oo I want to make love to Venus' soon. So God damn annoying, put McEnroe on lol.

God I hope not, I can't cope with her. It was tough to see her win Wimbledon to say the least, if she wins this I may have to go and have a cry in the corner .
