He deserved that win at Wimbledon but hopefully I'll get my revenge. The Sydney Morning Herald. Federer will face South African Anderson in their final group match on Thursday.

Up he pulled off arguably the point of the tournament with some ludicrous net play. After forcing Anderson to hit from beyond the baseline on his backhand wing, Federer charged towards the net and left the crowd gasping as he somehow returned an outstretched forehand volley.
He followed it up with a reflex volley — again on the forehand side — after Anderson blasted a ground stroke at him. 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. Then I watched him play Tsitsipas in the Junior Wimbledon, semis or finals, I don't remember what it was.
But it was during my Wimbledon run too. I don't remember. It was one of those matches where Tsitsipas should have won it, but both great onehanded backhand already, and, you know, I remember Denis was just going for broke, basically.
The more important it became, the bigger he went. Yeah, big fan of his game, so it's going to be tough tomorrow.
Next up is Denis Shapovalov who again came from a set down to defeat Frances Tiafoe over on Grandstand. The Canadian is into his third Masters final semi-final and he's come through some real tests this week defeating Evans, Tsitsipas and now Tiafeo in three sets.
Roger has never played the left-hander before but they have practised together on hard courts so I think he knows what to expect.
Shapo has a huge hard-hitting game but he's still fairly raw so I think Fed will continue his gameplan of mixing it up and baiting Shapovalov into going for too much.
Roger has a pretty good record against left-handers too so I like his chances. I'm sure Shapo will take confidence from seeing what Thiem was able to do two weeks ago in Indian Wells so you can't write him off and as Roger said, it's going to be tough.
Hopp Schwiiz! I was thinking about getting mess after giving break back on second set but Roger played good 9th game even after some gutsy saves by Kevin.
Yeah lies, damned lies and statistics. They cannot. Disagreement happens when you try to elaborate a judgment based on them.
And even this is incomplete. And so on. So, folks, please stop blaming the numbers and instead analyze the use we humans make of them and the fallibility of our judgement,.
But when you look past the numbers, I played every test match against Zimbabwe, then the numbers mean nothing.
Same for breakpoints, if won a match , and the stats says I am 1 out of 30 on break points. Then wow, what a joke. Except watch the match and all thirty breaking points came at and my opponent hit 29 aces on every break point before I converted to take it So much fun and yes worth the late night.
It was all on show and so enjoyable watching the confidence soar from 1st game. Denis will be full of vim and vigour but yes I expect that low slice to play havoc again and the sheer variety.
Tiafoe played such a classic corner to corner baseline slugger game. My user rating shld be 4. Hard to hit it right!! I docked him.
Completely off-topic: why was Tiafoe given a female name? Frances is female, Francis is male. Completely on-topic: wow!
Huh, less true where? If you picked out a people named Frances I bet 0 of them are male. Or 1 if Tiafoe was in the lineup. Hope he can pull it off.
Matches have worked out quite well, test early to get used to conditions and from there he has played efficient as poss.
That was a glorious match to watch. It was on in the morning here for me but I still was too nervous to watch it live. When I get really nervous I only watch matches later after I confirm Roger has already won!
The Bagel in the first set also made me nervous because if Roger let down and had lost in 3 it would be somewhat worse to win the first set to easily only to lose the match… convoluted thinking I know.
Haha I could never watch a match in full when I know the result. Jon, you were spot on as always! Kevin played poorly in the first, with a terrible first serve percentage and many unforced errors.
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 never did. I couldn't really get the rallies going the way I wanted to, especially the one-two punch wasn't working at all today," Federer said, referring to the deadly combination of his serve and first-strike forehand.
Perhaps it was the breeze, Federer said, or maybe just a bad day on his side of the net.
