Shhh Quiet .... Did you hear the sound ? The Tennis musician at work !!
Or I guess question would be “Will Federer lost a set in Australian open this year” or “will be see another brutalized match between Federer and Roddick”? Or “Should we allow him to play tennis with the pace he is playing?”
I have never seen any game so unfair. It’s one sided :-(. There are 127 players (actually 64) fighting for winning the runner up trophy. Few of them are lucky not to fall in Federer half so they can play till final – other are just waiting for the day when they have to face the playing legend. It’s the matter of time when you get the painful unmoved road blocker on your way. Of course Federer is gonna do it again – and in his style!!
It’s so one sided that you may not see a fighting match before semifinal. Or probably there is a way. Probably they need to change the rules for him, something like – win pre-semi matches in 3 sets – no second serve – no server beyond 175 – unforced error will cost him the next points – something like that. Then may be there is a fight.
don’t think it’s in reach of playing minds especially on grass and hard court. Its can’t be possible by one player. You need to take it out from many of them. Pick the serve of Roddick – add Nadal spin to it – backhand of Youzhny and Gasquet – top spin of Nadal – Mind of Djokovic - Determination of Nadal – Forehand of Djokovic – bolly of Mirnyi – Feed that to a boy and after 20 years when he is on top and Federer is old & weak – lost his serve, speed, mind, forehand, backhand – Well then it would be. Otherwise there is no chance in HELL.
