I only saw the first set against Korolev. My impression was that he
played much better than against Seppi. How was the second and third set?

PS.

He is garbage, a fake GOAT candidate who is a clown on clay and has an
awful H2H vs Nadal and Murray. Garbage, just garbage this Federina.
who had the worst loss in a slam final for a number 1 player at RG
2008. Simply humiliating for the former number one.

You really believe this shit don't you? How does a "clown" make it
to so many FO finals on clay?
How can someone who wins the number of tournaments he has be
"garbage". Or do you think that every other tennis player on the
planet is also "garbage"?

Maybe you should stick to your colouring book and crayons. Grown up
thinking seems to be beyond you.

I saw him put way too much effort into running around his backhand to
hit a forehand. Not sure if that was a mental error or if he was
practicing something. Hopefully he can reduce the unforced errors.

Frankly I wasn't very impressed. Korolev made way too many UE to make
it interesting, but Fed's backhand looked really shaky - too loopy and
no pace whatsoever. Forehand looked OK - but nothing special.

He was in good form throughout. He was helped a lot by Korolev's recklessness,
though.

++ The second set was tighter than the final score line might
indicate... Feds movement to the wide areas for defensive coverage was
better than its been in 2 years... to me that was the story of the
match... and Fed dug in and was aggressive when under pressure cause
Korolev is a big hitter, blasting away and Fed DIDN'T fall into the
easy diet of slicing everything he hit percentage returns and during
rallies and then unloaded to either end a point or get control... the
way he mixed it showed patience and aggression when he needed it...
the third set was Fed rolling... Fed in full easy flight...

I STILL don't think Fed is hitting as many corners and lines with his
first serve as he was in 2006 and 2007... and he's trying to hit the
wide out serve a little more (significantly) more on his first serves
and not that down the T bomb... clearly, he's trying to get to net at
better times more and more...
