He's looking v fired up even in the interview
I think he believes he can do it
i'm starting to

If he had a kinder draw, I'd be even more optimistic.

I believe it would then be Murray, who Fed would have zero problems dispatching.

jeez, easy straights...
It doesn't make sense, but does it matter?

Anyway, let's not get carried away now. As long as Nadal is in the draw, there's no chance of Federer winning this. If Nadal makes it to the final, my hopes are Wawrinka makes it too

This is exactly why fed's still playing: he comes, astounds the world and leaves (prob without a title) with a big grin on his face.

I know. I am very surprised too he can play that well at 35...and this after such a long break.

Remember some thought he woudl retire after Olympics 2012! Winking

I woudl fancy Fed v Andy....if fresh...but I think he will find a much tougher competition in Nishi than Berdych.

Berdych is old geneartion like him, there is no one of this generation touching him...but the new one, the one which learnt the game with those new strings and run everywhere? Much tougher for him. Always been.

Nishi will fold, he ain't got any weapons, well maybe the BH and is quick.

Guess more depends how Fed wakes up that day smiley

Crikey! 3 comprehensive sets.

Don't think Nishi will be relishing playing him next.

The crowd could help Fed as Nishi is emotional. However Unlike against Murray or Djoko Nishi will feel he has nothing to lose.

Frankly I think it will be a very close match.

So Federer can't beat Nadal?  Nonsense. Also, Nadal isn't near what he was 5 years ago.

I know GOAT is the word that must never be used, but this guy is just simply the best tennis player that has ever lived. The virtuosity is absurd - he's out for 6 months, comes back on the run in toward his 36th birthday, and wipes the floor with the World #10 playing a unique brand of attacking tennis based on lightning reflexes and hand-eye co-ordination.

He won't win the event, let's be realistic here, he could get wiped by Nish and would then get run into the ground by Murray and his 3rd lung, but this is mental.

Yes I don;t think he will win the tournament. But on the day he is still the best player by a mile.

In fact we should revert to pre open era when top players would just turn up for the final rounds to beat whoever managed to get through the draw. Winking

i would be very surprised if nishikori beats roger
i gave berdych a better chance to do that
roger played well against berdych but he looked vulnerable in the 2 rounds before that

The other thing is Federer only moving 1171m in the match, just 7.8m per point. That's tantamount to hardly doing any running, it's not much more than a trot to the service line every point.

This match will not be a factor in fitness levels later on.

I missed the first set and few games of set 2 but saw the rest and from what I saw Berdych was the one looking like the older man with no match fitness. Nothing Tomas could do against a genius in full flight.

And this is also why I think he never doped cause why would you take some risk if you can win with a normal human effort.

Of course he did, dipped his tongue on the dust a few times I bet, c.2005, then he found out he can beat anyone without it.  Whistle

"Federer in full flight", maybe this is how we can sum this picture:
still face, arms spread back like wings, in a world of his own.

I have always been mad about SBH, I love to watch it, I love to strike it.

Because it gives you this feeling of freedom.

It's the shot that comes right out of your heart.

A very demanding shot compared to FH.

You don't have to strike it as hard as your FH. 
There is something very silky and artistic in it.

Maybe it's how we people can fly on earth.

I certainly agree that yesterday it was better than Stan's. It had pace, consistency and precision and more angles
