It sounds dumb, but I think the break Novak got at the end of the 4th was huge even though he lost the set right after. After that he was into most of Fed's service games.

What a fucking match.

Did Rog air mail that lost shot bc the one before was in ?

Also, never get over how they make the loser sit there on the court

They absolutely suck. But the alternative of playing 50 games isn't possible.

Fuck. That sucks. Fed had so many chances. But Djok really stepped up everytime he needed to.
Tiebreakers are a necessary evil in earlier rounds but have no place in the final. Would’ve been interesting to see how this match would’ve played out if Federer won the 1st set 8-6.
