Could be, but what would have happened in the Verdasco match had Nadal
showed up with tired legs that night?

BS. According to the local commentators Nadal was frustrated against
Verdasco because the ball would not bite into the court so he couldn't
get much bounce from his topspin. And we've all seen how well Federer
has played in his night matches. Nadal would prefer a day match under
a blazing sun.

So stupid.
Didn't you notice the absence of artificial lightning at Wimby?
I just don't figure out what you are doing here.
You know so little about tennis, plus nothing first hand.
Do you take any pleasure in dumb & dumber posting ?

Share & Enjoy,
Manolo

He makes some horrendous ones but the good part is it's quite
hilarious. Everybody seems to have a good time when Federer challenges
since you're almost certain he's wrong; the crowd, people at home, the
referee, commentators, the opponent, Hawkeye...

Everyone except Federer himself and maybe even he, who knows. Maybe
he's come to enjoy the comedy in taking the mickey out of the system.

Federer was correct 5 out of 5 challenges in the Roddick match.

Not really. I would say he's a deliberate, aggressive challenger.
Doesn't hesitate to challenge if he thinks the ball was close enough
for the system to (mistakenly) award him the point.

So he's regularly testing the system. See if he can get lucky on a bad
review, looking to confirm his dismissive attitude toward the system.
This would feed his ego, and if he's wrong he's not surprised at all
and simply carries on. That's why his challenge record is so poor :)

He didn't miss a single challenge against Roddick in the semi though,
with some of the challenges just edging the lines. Probably switched
off his ego. Similar to two years ago against Roddick, same event,
same round.

He's often miles off with his challenges.

Yes, the idea that Federer really believes that a lot of the calls he
is challenging are wrong is laughable ...

Out of curiosity do you think it is ethical to challenge a call when you
know you are wrong? I was just curious because it could be construed to
some to be gamesmanship or a delaying tactic.

He could play Roddick in a straight jacket and still be right every
time , its a just bad match for Roddick as Nadal is for Fed i.e. they
both play off the others main weaknesses ( the backhand ) and do
everything else better.

Has Nadal ever played Federe in night match ?

Ok Wimbledon doesnt count..

It might be something he can use as mental buffer of sorts bit like
his grass record was against him as you say because he generally sees
the ball well.

I never bought into that darkness excuse. It was the same for both
players anyway. As far as the hawkeye, it seems
Fed makes a lot of challenges out of frustration with his own
mistakes. It's my impression that, moreso than most players, he
challenges calls even when he's pretty sure the call was correct.

Hm, maybe you are right. Any links? But he played his best matches at
night against Rochus and Haas. Anyway, lower court speed itself should
favor Nadal. I think Verdasco would have appreciated a faster court in
the semifinal. Then his winner stats would be even better.

PS.

Roddick said in his presser too that Fed sees the ball extremely well
at night and that that
could be a factor in the final.

Doesn't that counter the wimby darkness excuse of fed's though. Fed is
blind as a bat as hawkeye challenges tell us.
