I've been critical of the greatest generation (cough cough) in that, once they think, "I can beat Fed" they crap themselves immediately.

Stay tuned, FreeBird, I think we've got a good one on our hands. Maybe not Fed at his best but great drama.

Could be!  The DF's don't worry me as much as the badly missed 1st serves, many were several feet out for that 2nd break.  Then Fed dials it in.  How about that slice return at love-40?  Wow.  Bit of drama now, can Berd pull it together at 5-4?
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

LMAO!  It's not just Fed, but I understand what you're saying. Roddick trying to serve out 1st set last night comes to mind.

WHOA Tomas!!! 2-0 sets.

Let's see if his shorts are brown when he stands up.

Heya FreeB,

Berdych simply on firee, similar what Cilic did to Murray, but can Tomas hold on to this huge lead?

Hey Luggy!  We'll have to see if Fed can pull it back. He got some momentum back at end of 2nd set, but tried to force action too much at 5-4.

This is exactly where they were at the AO. Berdych led 2 sets to 1 and up a break, then Roger won in 5.

Pretty good look at Tomas's shorts there. Lol

Early break could relax Berd.  Fed's FH still blowing up regularly.

Don't think Fed is coming back to win this one...
Just can't get the FH going...
Occasionally, he'll hit a good one, but more often than not, it blows up on him.

 Birdman up 3-1 in the 3 rd set...
If Fed is going to turn it around, now would be good time...

Is it that Berdych hits the ball flatter and harder than everyone else? I think it might.
