Did Federer even play a top 10 player till the finals?
True, he did get quite a soft draw this time, but given his overall dominance, there is very good reason to believe he would have won no matter how tough the draw. I'm a bit dissapointed that it was Hewitt that reached the final and not the A-Rod, who I believe would have had a better chance against Fed. At least Roddick has a big serve and can reduce the number of points that Fed can control from the baseline. His forehand, as we saw in the W final, is capable of putting Fed under pressure. Hewitt on the other hand, appears impotent and gets bossed around by Fed, because he has neither powerful groundstrokes or serve.
BTW, did anyone else think that Fed didn't even play that well last night? He only played well when he had to, e.g. he would step it up a 3-3 in the set and break Hewitt, but at other times he was playing casual and making some errors.
I felt that Hewitt was giving it his all to prevent being humiliated like at the USO final, whereas Fed looked as if he had three gears left to go up, the highest of which was probably enough to win 6-0 6-0 6-0.
It was all too easy.
