September 12, 2010, 12:44 am - (2 years ago) First things first, I am a massive Roger Federer fan. This was a very tough loss to swallow, especially after the match points, and I am very disappointed. However, I have to congratulate Novak. This was the most thoroughly deserved win I can recall, not just for the way he fought tonight, but for how long he's waited to come out on the right end of one of these slam matches. Congratulations Mr Djokovic, it couldn't have happened to a more deserving player.
I have to say that Roger played a great match too, and the fact that this was SO close renders these 'Federer is done' threads as trash. He's not what he once was, but I think there's probably a slam or two left with the right draws and conditions. He showed some good heart tonight as well, and while he didn't play his best for large portions of the match, he hung in there in the fifth set. He didn't do enough on the returns of his match points, but he didn't lose those points, Nole won them.
All in all, a surreal semi-final for me. I am very disappointed but also have to smile for Novak. I wish him all the best in the final and hope that he can recover in time.
Peace out, and congratulations once more to Novak, a deserved winner. Click here to read full article
