Roger is in trouble. I hope he can pull it out in the 3rd set! Come on Roger!!!

He should because he is clearly the better player. Why he decided to play baseball in at 5-3 up in the second set is beyond me.

Last 4 service games, Federer has been broken 3 times.

Back at 2-2 in the third with Falla to serve.

this is a slaughter house... Berdych out, Verdasco out,  lost to Istomin, Nalbandian out (OK, that's  not a big surprise, still) ... Kohly out (I was really surprised)...

Roger is really in trouble right now. I knew Falla would be trouble for Roger. They don't matchup well even though Roger had won their previous matches.

True that. Although I'm happy that Haase retained his title (as a Dutchman). Hopefully he can carry that momentum on to the OS tomorrow  :)).

I'm afraid that we can add Federer to the slaugter house; he has lost it mentally it seems to me.

Beyond me too.  Falla has taken his chances beautifully, but Federer should have taken this in 2 sets.   The mind boggles.  He is rattled, and Falla with the momentum.

DALLAS - I'm not sure it's about match-up here.  Federer just went AWOL.  But he will fight for it. I think he'll do it.

Close match for Fed. Why was he putting so much air under his shots?

He did it DALLAS!    Phew!!   :)

When it mattered, he did what he needed to do. It's good preparation to be challenged & come through.
Falla played some intelligent tennis to take the momentum in the second set & to fight in the 3rd set. A very good match from him.

I'll check the rest of the tennis - Murray / Wawrinka is the one I've wanted to see today.

So relieved right now. Bennetau up next - that won't be easy either.

Hello ORACLE!    Glad you're less frazzled now that Federer has won.   :)
Benneteau was excellent in their match at Wimbledon, wasn't he!  The obvious concern is that he would have won in a 3 set format, and both he & federer will be keenly aware of this.
I expect him to be confident & Federer will need to be better focused than he was today. 

Anyway, for today, I hope Murray can take this match against Wawrinka.

You're right. Roger just did get by him in 5 sets. But I'm glad Roger pulled it out today!!! That was too close for comfort!

Both Falla and Bennetau were 2 sets up against Federer at Wimbledon, in 2010 R1 and 2012 R3. So yeah, the next match will also be a nailbiter.

I like Murray a lot, but I hope Wawrinka can edge that one. Still think Murray will win it eventually though.

Serena looked good in her first match.  Wozinacki down a break in her match.

Nailing my colours to the mast, ORACLE - I am hoping either Federer or Murray can win the Gold here!

Well, well!    Keothavong took the first set from Wozniacki & broke her in the second set!   Can she actually hold her game & keep up the momentum?

Keothavong's father is chair umpire in the Bryan brothers match. They're up a set.


Just watching some doubles. Isner / Roddick down a set to Mello / Soares

Yeah, Andy is defintely my 2nd choice too. If Federer loses early, I'll be rooting for him. Sucks that he is facing Stan in R1. I like both of them, so it's difficult for me to choose between them.

Federer is nervous it seems. Gifted the second set to Falla -- after being 5-3 up -- with 10 unforced errors.

Not surprising.  He needs to settle into this tourney.  He does not get a shot at this next year and he knows this is the one title that has eluded him.  Good to see him come through.
Good Luck on the Court!!!
