Federer Anderson Quick Match Recap VideoWimbledon 2018 Highlights: Federer stunned by Anderson in 5 sets - ESPN
Federer struck the decisive blow at , however, winning a marathon game of 22 points and clinching the break with a fortuitous backhand return down the line.
I got a bit lucky there at the end. Federer found himself with his back to the wall after an error-strewn loss to Nishikori in his opening round-robin match - his first straight sets defeat in 46 group stage matches at the season-ending showpiece.
Another loss would have made it impossible for him to reach the semi-finals for the 15th time in 16 appearances at the tournament. Yet 48 hours later, the year-old Federer rebounded in style, to the delight of the crowd packed into The O2 arena.
When the pieces don't fit together quite right. The kind of day that has occurred so infrequently in his storied career, and so rarely when the whole world is watching.
Once Federer lost contact with his A-game, he kept searching for it like a guy trying to pull in a weak radio signal.
He wasn't getting many aces. When I was on, I was making him play. From the baseline I felt like I could mix it up, play aggressive. There was a lot going on.
But as the match went on, I couldn't surprise him anymore. That's a bad feeling to have. That's an especially bad feeling for one of whom so much is expected.
But the brooding confession partially concealed the role Anderson played in keeping Federer from recovering his momentum.
Both men served well, which might have been expected. But Anderson was on point the entire time over the final three sets with his groundstrokes from the baseline, while Federer made surprisingly few adjustments in his game plan to throw him off.
He may not have tried a single drop shot. He seemed to be waiting for Anderson's ground game to break down. It dropped before the service line and forced Anderson to come and join him at the net.
That prompted a crazy exchange of four rapid-fire volleys before Federer finished off the point with a deft passing shot.
Even for Federer, this has been a very Federer stretch of tennis. Federer The rampage continued early in the second set as Federer took a lead, holding off a marathon service game from his 2.
The third set would have been tight, almost a repeat of Wimbledon was in the offing! As Roger said, margins are tight, and even though he is playing better than ever before, the opposition has caught up finally!
Would really have hated him to lose in 3 after that first-set bagel. Hm did Anderson play badly in the first set?
He was under huge pressure from basically the first point. Sweating buckets and breathing hard after 2 games.
Agree with the rest. Although playing better than ever before? They say it about all the greats, Oh Ronnie must be playing better now than he ever has.
Loved the match and Roger played much better than I expected him to. He has to be wary of Denis S though. He has nothing to lose. And his break point convesion rate has not been great in I can see Denis taking a set.
But looking forward to the Fed-Isner final ;p. On the contrary, if you look at the stats from Krajinovic match onwards Fed has been much stingier with UFEs.
Consistency won him the match v Medvedev and last night. He has adapted beautifully to this court and it has showed. Yep agree with Susie, he has been rock solid this week so far, consistency has been the reason he is in the semi final!
Fun match indeed! Incredible level of play. The Slicerer at his best. Hope for a great tennis lesson for him. Got up at am, looked at my screen and when I saw , I checked the result on two websites to be sure.
Just watched the replay of the match. A fantastic performance from Fed! The ping-pong point at the net can be added to the Raz Ols points selection!
And I hope it will be fun against Shapo tonight … in the middle of the night again… Yees …. Did you see the ping-pong point from reverse Kevin side?
What a point that was! Just getting that return back, with the stretch when he first approached the net, was amazing.
Maestro Roger is really enjoying himself! For me, having two Canadian teens in the semis is great. They both have talent and are nice people.
They both had Fed as their idol, so a dream come true. Shapo is a bigger risk taker which can be good and bad.
Awesome for tennis in Canada.Der Südafrikaner war in den letzten zwei Sätzen einfach der bessere Mann, leistet sich weniger leichte Fehler und serviert vor allem konstanter. Fast zwei Monate musste Kevin Anderson pausieren. Wenn Www Kicker Dr und Geschick zusammenkommen Both players started in ominous form on serve but that Kann Man überweisung Zurückziehen changed in the opening set, as a series of Guinness Draught of serve brought the match to life. I don't remember. As you noted, in the second set Kevin served much better, hit his ground strokes quite well and Ghost Sliders not give up easy points.
