Tell the umpire he's dropped his balls & can't go on.

Terrible for tennis.

Yes, you've nailed it Mr. Tier 1 analyst. That's exactly what Rafa is
known for.

It's always the opponent choking allowing Fed to win, never what he
him does himself right? Since Federer's level is always completely
consistent?

Berdych was being Sampras on steroids out there for an hour and a
half. You should be happy, instead of heartbroken since Fed just took
a big step closer to the magic number ;)

Roger played poorly compared to Safin match - maybe 40% at best?
Berdych just reinforced his reputation as big pussy on court.

More like Ljubicic on steroids.

The dirty secret is that "choking" is part of tennis. It's hard to
close out a match, and lots of players have benefited from this,
whether they be Sampras or Federer or anyone else. Part of the game
is the question of which player has the psychological strength to hang
in there and claw out the win. In this case, it was Fed.

yes, Fed had a "bad" day but it is the mark of a champion to find a
way to win in spite of it. Fed did that today.

No he didn't. He played slightly worse in last 3 sets. Berdych being
the type of player he is found a way to lose it.

Rafa would never choke like that. He would just give up earlier like
he has done so many times in the past against blake, youzhny, berdych,
et al. Rafa is not a choker. He's a quitter. Well he did choke once on
a banana.
