Woah!.. Nole looks dead on his feet. Fed's broken him twice and leads 3-0 and on serve next.

Nole's serve, groundstrokes all are in deep sleep. Let's awaken the giant.

Bagel anyone? If so, cream cheese or butter? I'd personally like a bit butter.

  Poor Nole. Worst nightmare for him. 40% range first serves, numerous double faults. This is 2009 Nole, not even 2012 Nole. WTF?

Pete would have killed that ball a long time ago. Nole's not as good but he certainly did the best he could.

EDIT: the many points Federer has won off serve already. Nole, on the other, hand is mostly on 2nd serve. The importance of having a great serve.

Fifth double fault for Nole already.

This is what happens, if you play too many matches across a relatively short period of time. Poor Nole.

Nole looks spent though they are still on serve in this set. Will he recover in just one week time I wonder.

The second serve stats in the first set were appalling. Nole won 10% of his. Fed won 100% of his.

What's weird is that in the Delpo match Nole won 71% of his second serves. And Delpo won only 40% as Nole was taking advantage.

I know Fed has a great serve and Nole can have yips. But this is a shocking disparity. Maybe something is wrong? Nole can't even return today. He's had that shoulder /elbow strapped since before Wimbledon too, and then he played Olympics, Canada and here. He's burnt out maybe?

I dunno?  Shrug

Sad for Nole though, or embarrassed.  flush
