Federer vs Minar
« on: February 23, 2005, 07:33:13 AM »
R. Federer       6   6   3       
I. Minar         7     3     3

Ahhhh, what happened to his dominance?  I wonder if that AO loss really did shake his confidence.  I hope he can pull through this one.

What sucks is that these matches are not on TV so I really have no clue how both these 2 guys are playing.  Fed is now up 5-3 in the 3rd.

Edit - - - Federer won in 3, but he needed a 3rd set tie-breaker to do it.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I think he is very mad at himself for not playing well, and letting a Safin playing outrageously well, beat him in the Australian Open semis.  He is mad at himself for giving away a slam, for missing a 5th slam title he should have won.   He seems to be fighting the inner demons from that bitter loss and it is hurting his play.   I hope he gets it back before the two Masters Series hard court events.

A win is still a win even if it's a struggle. I think Federer is doing fine. He already won 2 tourneys, 3 if counting Kooyoung where he beat Roddick in the final. He's number 1, but it doesn't mean he won't have a bad day, he just finds ways to win when having a bad day and he did just that. I'm disappointed with Safin for not putting more of an effort.
I've been a tennis bum for half my life.
I'll just be a bum for the other half.

I agree w/kittens25. Hes a little peeved, but if he were to face off against Andre. I dont think he would play like that. I wonder what will happen the next time Safin and Roger play. If it grass Roger will KILL him but any other surface would be interesting. What would happen if they played in the French? Both can play on clay...
Its all good...

He raises his game when the bigger matches hit center stage and he is playing.  What he did to Andre at the Australian Open this year was amazing.  To bad he could not to do it to Marat as well.

I have condifence in him, he will pull it together.

I have never heard of Minar.  Where is he from?
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

He's from the Czech Republic. He reached the final in Sydney the week before the Aussie Open.
