Looking for an apology? What?

Should Novak not have hit the shot?
Yes Novak should have hit the shot, very valid shot.

But standard tennis etiquette is you do a little wave of the hand, tip of the head, whatever to basically say I wasnt trying to hurt you. It's not an expectation to shout I'm sorry, are you ok.

Yes, Fed with the break, he can serve for it

Ok. Thanks.

Seems to have inspired Rog. He is crushing it right now.

Holy shit, we have seen better matches but the drama and pressure on both of these guys is insane.

Up 40-15 with serve. That’s going to leave a mark for Federer if Novak takes this. So close.

He has grown some on people, but he's also been a bit of a dick, especially towards fans so yes a lot of people don't like him
Ah, didn’t know. I quit following tennis a while back so haven’t paid much attention in the past10 or so years.

The sun side has won the last four games. I wonder if the shadow is messing with the bottom court.

Actually I think it sucks someone has to lose this. I like both players.
That's the way I feel, although I'm pulling for Djokovic for some reason. I'm at work with a big TV and am the only one doing so.
