Toronto Last Call 08/15/2010 - 11:30 AM

103387895 [[Pete is on vacation from today until Wednesday, the 18th. He'll be back with a post on Thursday.]]

By Jackie Roe, TW Contributing Writer


Hey there, TWibe. Are you pumped for today's final? I'll be in attendance at Federer-Murray in Toronto, then heading straight to Cincinnati for more live tennis action. Stay tuned to TW for my daily reports in the Queen City.

Before I preview today's final, I thought I'd give you a run-down of all that's happened here since I posted last (in Friday's Deuce Club):

Friday, 8/13

(Unfortunately, I spent much of the afternoon in the press room, wrapping up the DC, so I didn't catch all of the action. Apologies for the gaps in match coverage.)

Centre Court for Murray-Nalbandian. Rooting (silently, of course) for Nalbandian but good to see Muzz playing so cleanly and not getting down on himself.

Caught the beginning of Nadal-Kohlschreiber. Not surprised about Rafa's slow start - not the first time that's happened. Left shortly after it started to write so I can't say how either guy played. Check out Steve's post on the match for more.

Murray presser. When I first attended one of these, back in Cincinnati, my most salient impression was how nervous he was. Still the case: Poor eye contact, hands in hoodie pockets, serious. Called the match one of the best he's played all year.

Nalbandian presser. Demeanor not altogether different from the last one, despite the different results. Still open, easy-going. Said he feels tired, but would be fine in a few days. Arrived to the ball more slowly because of the fatigue.

Federer-Berdych.

  • Missed the first set as I was still in the press room. Expected it to be more competitive at the outset, but not so. Beth left this message for me in the DC, which is funny in retrospect: "If you don't hurry out there, Jackie, Federer is gonna be done. He is on a mission, from what it looks like via scoreboard."
  • Intense. Fed with emphatic "Come on!" in the second set.
  • Berd didn't look 100% physically. Movement a little labored, maybe?
  • Loads of crowd support for Berd in the second set. Fans wanted more tennis!
  • Described the last game of the second set - when Berd broke to even up the match - as "odd." Fed double-faulted twice, then the awful shank at set point. Happened in the blink of an eye; it was like an accelerated version of his typical mid-match walkabout (i.e. going to Mirka Land).
  • Third set - both guys beating the felt off the ball.
  • When Berd hits his stride and has his mojo/confidence flowing, he's intimidating. Develops almost a swagger, actually feels like he belongs. Gone are the days when you trusted he'd collapse in any pressure-packed situation. (Later in the third set, I added a "Okay, maybe not.")
  • Obvious how much this match means to Fed. Another big "Come on!" to go up 0-40 on Berd's serve at 1-1 in the 3rd. Only to squander them all, as is typical for Fed.
  • The game at 5-3 was when all hell started to break loose. Waves of applause for Fed, urging him to break. Every point won by Fed met by deafening applause and a standing ovation.
  • Then my notes just became a mess. This is what I have: Heart attack! Fed BP. Wasted. Another. Wasted. And another. Wasted. And another. CONVERTS! This place is a madhouse.
  • The unruly crowd surprised me. Isn't impoliteness a felony in Canada," as Codge said? I hated when the guy yelled, "Berdych, are you nervous?" in a mocking tone. At least it only seemed to fire him up. Saw on Twitter that the crowd's antics were obvious on TV. What did you guys think? (There was one funny moment, though. When Lars Graff said "Thank you" to quiet the crowd, a guy called out, "You're welcome!" There was so much laughter that Berd had to step off the service line.)
  • I realized this was the most nervous I'd ever been watching live tennis.
Met up with Sher again - and met Grant for the first time! We didn't get to chat much since I was about to fall over from starvation, unfortunately.

Federer presser. Re: that "odd" game, Fed said the transition from day to night was rough. Hmm. Appeared a tad irritated, but maybe he was just tired.

I missed Berdy's presser so I could finally get food. But Mariya at TalkAboutTennis.com said that it was tough to sit through, as he was almost beside himself with disappointment.

Saturday, 8/14

Cermak/Mertinak vs. Benneteau/Llodra on Centre.
  • Bendra are uncannily in sync with one another. Was easy capturing them on camera since they seemed to never be more than a few feet away from each other, mirroring the other's movements.
  • Cermak/Mertinak are like twins, too. When receiving, they act out the same routine in unison (take a few steps, kick last leg, step back).
  • It's been said countless times but I'll repeat it again anyway - live dubs is incredible. Exciting, engaging, fun.
  • Shallow observation of the match: I wish all dubs pairs dressed in the same outfits, like Bendra.
Nadal-Murray up.
  • Whenever I watch Rafa, I catch myself literally gasping at his shots. I don't know that I do that with anyone else.
  • From the very beginning, Rafa didn't look like himself ... playing too passively.
  • Murray looked focused, dialed in, and even postive. None of the dour/whiny stuff we saw in the Monfils match. Served increasingly better as the set went on.
  • At 4-4 in the second set, it started to sprinkle; fortunately, the match ended shortly thereafter.
  • Rafa gave a look of resignation after a wind-induced UFE at 5-4 in the second. I can't remember the last time I saw that kind of a look from him.
Murray presser. He looked more relaxed than he did yesterday, but still far from comfortable. Speech is monotone, slow, measured. (I guess I'd appear that way, too, if I had to reckon with the British press.) Said he actually likes being aggressive and more offensive - I wish he'd do that more often!

Nadal presser. Looked great in green, came in munching on a snack. Clearly not too bent out of shape over the loss. Called his serve the "worst thing in [his] game today" and noted that he didn't practice that particular part of his game much because that's how he injured his abs last year. Also said that he was slower than usual and that he needs to improve his backhand, since he had to "think too much" when playing those shots during the match. When asked how he's feeling now vs. a year ago, he responded with "I never like comparations." Perfect response

Federer-Djokovic next.
  • The crowd energy was off the charts before the first ball was even played.
  • Nole was clearly edgy at the start; changed his racquet after his first service game (was broken).
  • Nole already looked spent by the fifth game. Atrocious serving. (Remember how he served back in '08? My, how things have changed.)
  • Confident and crisp Fed. Nole trying to be more aggressive on the return but generally looked sluggish, defeated, pained. Couldn't buy a first serve.
  • Momentum shift in the second, with the crowd trying to pump up Nole. It worked.
  • Noticed that Fed wasn't as expressive today as he was yesterday. No loud "Come on"s (until late in the third). Did the Berd match affect him more emotionally? Psychologically? Or perhaps not ... just a different match, different conditions, different crowd.
  • After Fed squandered a boatload of break point opportunities, I scribbled down, "Fed's gonna get broken now, huh." What do you know, I was right. The one time I didn't want to be.
  • Fed's little exhalation before serves is much more apparent in real life than on TV. Which also makes it more disconcerting.
  • "The fat lady is still warming up her pipes." I wrote that when Nole broke back at 2-4. Kind of sums up that last set.
  • Overall, it wasn't a great match, quality-wise. Still, the drama of the third set was worth the price of admission.
Djokovic presser.
  • This may have been my very first Nole presser, at any tournament. Anxious to see him in that context in real life.
  • Looked very "king of the castle" in the chair, with both arms on the arm rests and legs spread apart.
  • Confident speaker. Articulate. Thoughtful analysis of the match and his/Fed's games. Likable. Charismatic. Not negative, like I had expected after the loss.
  • Was unsatisfied with all of the unforced errors but overall felt that the tournament was a success.
Federer presser.
  • Re: Murray, knew from the first time he played him in Bangkok, he'd be one of the best in the world.
  • What did Nole say to Fed at the net? That he should've won earlier! Fed described Nole as a"good sport."
  • Fed was asked about how his relationship with Annacone was going. His response: "It's very romantic." Quote of the tournament. (His real answer was that he's taking it week by week, that Annacone might not be in Cincy since Severin will be there.)

And now we've arrived at the final, between Federer and Murray. My thoughts:

  • Muzz has shown fine form, particularly in his last two matches. He described both as being one of the best he's played all year. Fatigue won't be a problem.
  • Fed showed some rust early but winning two tough 3-setters in a row should do wonders for his confidence. Particularly the victory over Berd, who's had his number. Still, have these matches taken their toll? Even Fed alluded to this in his presser last night, saying, "Hopefully I won't be too banged up." Even if that's the case, this Fed fan is glad he got the match play.
  • Looking forward to a competitive match. Murray leads the H2H at 6-5, but Fed took their last three matches. I don't have a clue what the outcome will be, but I'm just glad I get to witness it.

This is where you should be to call the Toronto final. Enjoy it, guys! (I'm flying to Cincy this evening, and will be posting from there the next few days. Make sure to check out my reports here, and for some added coverage, follow me on Twitter, @JackieRoe.)

ugh, the FH error comes out to play.

Posted by tina (Steve Buscemi is the only Mr. Pink) 08/15/2010 at 01:56 PM

My previous engagement got pushed back, so I've got my ESPN3 up and running.

Was yesterday some holiday in Canada? Or were the fireworks just a normal Saturday night thing at Rogers Cup? It looked like they went off just for Fed.

Posted by Nam1 08/15/2010 at 01:56 PM

Vamos Andy!!!

Posted by scoreboarding 08/15/2010 at 01:56 PM

Nam1,

I did think from his comments that he had to have been a player. Thanks for the info.
They're not exactly entertaining commentators but they do seem knowledgeable.

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 01:57 PM

What is wrong with espn3?

Posted by scoreboarding 08/15/2010 at 01:58 PM

Great start for Murray! Vamos Roger, break back!

Posted by crazyone 08/15/2010 at 01:58 PM

sigh. Fed...

Posted by Heather 08/15/2010 at 01:58 PM

LadyJulia, it's not working for me either but I did just find a stream that's working at the moment, here's the link: http://channelsurfing.net/watch-rogers-cup.html

Posted by Nam1 08/15/2010 at 01:58 PM

Tina,

Rogers cup always has fireworks after the night session; much as Roger is adored here, the fireworks have been part of the Rogers cup tradition for the last 3 years to my knowledege;

Posted by Fangorina 08/15/2010 at 01:58 PM

Muzz looks very Lestat on my stream so far. Toothy.

Posted by Ruth 08/15/2010 at 01:58 PM

LOL, Syd @1:07. Next thing I'll be hearing is that Toronto has lost its reputation as the cleanest city I've ever visited! :-)

Posted by Rafa 2010 Cincy champ, I told you so 08/15/2010 at 01:59 PM

tina (Steve Buscemi is the only Mr. Pink)

Roger(')s cup. enough said. What's some fireworks, just for its mascot?

NO-------!!! I told you, old Fed needs rest!! Old Fed got broken meekly. Rain come back. Come back!

Posted by Jamaica Karen (FOTHB - Roger and Venus) 08/15/2010 at 02:00 PM

Not a good start for Fed.

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:00 PM

Heather,

Thanks...

ESPN....is sooo annoying that its not funny.

Posted by Nam1 08/15/2010 at 02:00 PM

oh geez Andy , that was a sitter!!

Posted by crazyone 08/15/2010 at 02:01 PM

geez, not a good start for Fed.

Posted by Tim (Outlaw the Moonpie!) 08/15/2010 at 02:01 PM

old Fed needs rest, this is too much, and Murray is gonna run run run ...

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:01 PM

This is going to be quick....*sigh*

Posted by scoreboarding 08/15/2010 at 02:02 PM

This is the kind of start Andy needed. He didn't miss a first serve yet while Fed is at 50%

Posted by Nam1 08/15/2010 at 02:02 PM

Not a good start for Roger but he is Roger Federer; he can fix this.

Posted by crazyone 08/15/2010 at 02:03 PM

Fed's really got to get that 1st serve going.

Posted by Matt Zemek 08/15/2010 at 02:03 PM

This could be over in less than an hour. It wouldn't be a shock, either. This didn't set up well for Fed, but hey, a runner-up showing and a (temporarily regained) No. 2 ranking are a mighty nice set of problems to have.

So is the $220,000 runner-up check Fed will get.

Posted by Nam1 08/15/2010 at 02:03 PM

what a shot!!! When Andy plays like this, he is untouchable.

Posted by Jamaica Karen (FOTHB - Roger and Venus) 08/15/2010 at 02:03 PM

Yeah, going to be a long day at the office today for Le Fed. Oh well. At least we beat him at the USO and the AO

Posted by wilson75 08/15/2010 at 02:03 PM

I think Roger's legs are dead.

Posted by Cupcake lurker 08/15/2010 at 02:03 PM

I know Mandy is playing great and all,but what happen to all that aggressive play.

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:03 PM

Okay...Fed...don;t get bageled..

Make this a match, will ya?

Posted by nina 08/15/2010 at 02:04 PM

Andy breaks again, what heppend with Roger

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:04 PM

I think Muzz is going to feed him a bagel in the first set.

Posted by Fangorina 08/15/2010 at 02:04 PM

Fed is channeling Nole from their first set yesterday.....

Posted by Sherlock 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

A slow start was to be expected, wasn't it? I think Rog will be ok once he gets loosened up.

Posted by scoreboarding 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

Oh well I have to adjust my expectations, at least for the first set!

Posted by Jamaica Karen (FOTHB - Roger and Venus) 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

Yeah, going to be a very long day at the office. Does not help that those 2 dolts are once again singing the praises of the British No. 1 (yesterday he was Scottish :))

Posted by Matt Zemek 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

Actually, a mercifully short match wouldn't be bad (I'm serious). His body won't be too taxed for Cincy, where he needs a semifinal showing to avoid a points hemorrhage.

And besides, I'm a Majors guy, not a Masters guy, to begin with.

Posted by Heather 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

It's nice to see Andy with some positive body language for a change.

Posted by Red 1.7.17.287⁺ = Legacy Solidified 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

Old man Fed about to be bageled?

Posted by Tim (Outlaw the Moonpie!) 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

roger's legs are dead ...i echo that, and murray is solid and returning everything, might be a better second set lets hope, geez such an early start when a semi is played late night ... eh whatevs, just cheats the fans out of a good match

Posted by TripleF(FedFanForever): Not Fuchsia! Pink it is. 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

The best start from Fed. Great to watch. Haven't had lunch and too freakin early to drink. Nightfreakinmare.

Posted by Andrew 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

Well, that could have started better. 3-0 Murray with two breaks. Federer must be sticking his tongue out, because Murray is sitting on his serve. Then Murray hit 5 first serves in his own match. At this rate, Federer won't have enough time on court to get puffed.

Posted by Nam1 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

The Rolex commercial is showing at a bad time!! I always find it a bit ironic when a player is playing bad and one of their commercials comes on!!

Posted by crazyone 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

what Ladyjulia said at 2:03.

Posted by Jamaica Karen (FOTHB - Roger and Venus) 08/15/2010 at 02:05 PM

Sherlock, do not think the come from behind is going to happen today. He is not even moving well. One of those things

Posted by Rafa 2010 Cincy champ, I told you so 08/15/2010 at 02:06 PM

my Fed 2010 Toronto champ project is failing rapidly.... Tired Fed gets broken left and right.

stupid rain, not coming when needed.

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 08/15/2010 at 02:06 PM

Writing off Roger after three games seems a bit premature to me. :)

That said - I haven't seen Murray play this well for ages! (I didn't watch yesterday.) Even if he loses this I'm pleased to have seen that from him.

Posted by crazyone 08/15/2010 at 02:07 PM

come on Fed, convert one of these break points!

Posted by zenggi 08/15/2010 at 02:07 PM

That was a short rain delay. I almost missed the first set!. Come on, Roger. Don't go for the winners with the FH. Wait another shot. And break back now!

Posted by Fangorina 08/15/2010 at 02:07 PM

Here comes Roger

Posted by scoreboarding 08/15/2010 at 02:08 PM

yeah he gets one of the breaks back!

Posted by crazyone 08/15/2010 at 02:08 PM

no bagel! and 1/1 on break points!

now hold serve...

Posted by Cupcake lurker 08/15/2010 at 02:08 PM

At least it won't be a beagle.

Posted by Tim (Outlaw the Moonpie!) 08/15/2010 at 02:08 PM

that's the fred i know!

Posted by Sherlock 08/15/2010 at 02:08 PM

The guy with 16 slams breaks back. Shocking. :)

Posted by Nam1 08/15/2010 at 02:08 PM

Roger breaks! Crowd is ridiculously pro-Roger but TO crowds have always been very pro-Roger.

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:08 PM

The stream's freezing up...did I mention I hate ESPN?

Not being bageled is a start.

Posted by scoreboarding 08/15/2010 at 02:09 PM

I think crowds are usually pro-roger most everywhere :)

Nice hold too. Now break again and you'll have him where you want him!

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:10 PM

That's a respectable score...

Posted by Tim (Outlaw the Moonpie!) 08/15/2010 at 02:10 PM

Go Grandpa Fed, respectability restored ... this might put the doubt back in Murray's noggin..

Posted by Jamaica Karen (FOTHB - Roger and Venus) 08/15/2010 at 02:11 PM

Yeah, no bagel or bread sticks today. A donut (2) maybe or a croissant (3). Who knows. I am very zen about this match. Very nice if he wins but not going to get my blood pressure up if he loses.

Posted by TripleF(FedFanForever): Not Fuchsia! Pink it is. 08/15/2010 at 02:11 PM

Fed, Fred and Freddy on the lines of me, myself and Irine.

It was nice to see Fed hitting crisply. TMF is not in sight yet, but I think I saw a glimpse. I do imagine things...so keep me honest folks.

Posted by Andrew 08/15/2010 at 02:11 PM

Better. Federer breaks and holds, but he's still down 3-2, Murray with a break lead. It's very early in the match - time for both players to make various adjustments. Murray put immense pressure on Federer's slice serve to deuce, so what did Federer do at game point? Slice to deuce, game Federer. Some adjustment...

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:11 PM

oh...he has to break again to level the score?

What are the chances that Fed will get 10 breakpoints again in the next game? If he gets 10, he will convert one.

Though he was 1/1 earlier...but those things happen so rarely.

Posted by Texastennis 08/15/2010 at 02:11 PM

Crazy how this isn't on tv!

I'm sure Fed is going to fly directly to Cincinatti this evening in private plane - no need for him to take tomorrow as a travel day.

Posted by Matt Zemek 08/15/2010 at 02:12 PM

Roger crushed the ball and won points without extended rallies. Exactly right - even if he loses, just go for broke and don't make this match a drawn-out track meet behind the baseline. Short points, win or lose, manage the body, get to Cincy without being completely and utterly spent. Fire up the Net Jets, bay-bay! ;-)

Posted by Rafa 2010 Cincy champ, I told you so 08/15/2010 at 02:12 PM

I see that it was all part of the plan by good old Fed.

Lose serves meekly. Thus making Muzz relax and confused, then BAM! Furious fightback and bring 99% crowd on your side. Pretty clever, eh? Classic rope-a-dope execution. Oh no! Muzz figured out already. Darn it.

Posted by Arun 08/15/2010 at 02:12 PM

"Writing off Roger after three games seems a bit premature to me."
Do you always think so positively especially when that World #1 takes the court?

Also Sherlock: I trust you've also read the frazzling-frenzy around these parts during one of Nadal's matches -- even if the opponent is [first name] Mina. :)

Posted by Matt Zemek 08/15/2010 at 02:14 PM

TV note:

If any of you live near America's northernmost borders, CBC has this on live. Canadian TV!

Posted by Cupcake lurker 08/15/2010 at 02:15 PM

How can the crowd be ridiculously pro any player, aren't they free for the player they want no matter who it is???

*bagel.

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:17 PM

Fed you gotta break...NOW

Posted by Taco Bell 08/15/2010 at 02:17 PM

Has any one noticed there is no Paul Annacone in the Fed camp......gone????

Posted by scoreboarding 08/15/2010 at 02:17 PM

I think the point was that Roger's accomplishments should give people pause when tempted to writing him off. Nobody has won more than him.

Of course all fans frazzle and more than that some fans don't want to 'jinx' their player by being overly confident.

Posted by Rafa 2010 Cincy champ, I told you so 08/15/2010 at 02:17 PM

C'mon Fed. Show Muzz who's his daddy.

Posted by tina 08/15/2010 at 02:17 PM

I didn't honestly think the fireworks were in honor of Federer, but with Cahill's hyperbolic post-match analysis, the whole scene made me giggle.

It was a fun and novel experience to see a player come out so fast against Fed. Glad I can watch it live. Even if ESPN3 keeps repeating this Gilette Pro Glide comercial. Oh, sorry, "Fusion" Pro Glide.

Posted by Andrew 08/15/2010 at 02:18 PM

Two holds, Murray 4-3 with a break. Very odd - why are people writing Federer off already? He beat Murray in 3 after losing set 1 in London YEC 2009 RR: he came back from two breaks in set 1 vs James Blake in IW F 2006. Long time before this one's in the books.

Posted by scoreboarding 08/15/2010 at 02:18 PM

nobody = no active player

Posted by Sherlock 08/15/2010 at 02:18 PM

Arun, he he. :) Still crazy on either side, no?

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:18 PM

I would be surprised if Roger dosen't get crowd support anywhere (except when he plays a home body)...this is the third part of his career and he's not going to be around forever.

Posted by Heather 08/15/2010 at 02:19 PM

Taco Bell, Doug and Robbie were just talking about that. Apparently Severin Lhuti is going to be with Roger in Cincy and Paul is not going to be there.

Posted by Arun 08/15/2010 at 02:20 PM

ripper of a BH pass.

Posted by Sherlock 08/15/2010 at 02:20 PM

And Tiger goes bogey on 9 and double bogey on 10. So much for even a glimmer of a run.

Posted by crazyone 08/15/2010 at 02:21 PM

I thought that BH passer from Muzz was on the line, but wide.

Posted by crazyone 08/15/2010 at 02:22 PM

Fed should hold here...

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:22 PM

Fed...please HOLD.

Posted by Nam1 08/15/2010 at 02:23 PM

I find Wimbledon crowds are the most even in their cheering for the players; must be that "British sense of fair play" we hear about!!

Posted by JohnC 08/15/2010 at 02:23 PM

Murray playing frighteningly well so far.

Posted by Fangorina 08/15/2010 at 02:24 PM

stream died

Posted by Nam1 08/15/2010 at 02:24 PM

Hello JohnC,

Long time no see!!

Posted by scoreboarding 08/15/2010 at 02:25 PM

Federer is playing well now. Murray to serve for the match 5-4

Posted by Nam1 08/15/2010 at 02:25 PM

oh man Andy

Talk about a lost chance.

Posted by crazyone 08/15/2010 at 02:25 PM

all right, let's see if Muzz can serve for it...

Posted by Cupcake lurker 08/15/2010 at 02:25 PM

He holds.

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:26 PM

Fed...manufacture a break somehow?

Posted by TripleF(FedFanForever): Not Fuchsia! Pink it is. 08/15/2010 at 02:26 PM

At least let the serve out the set. That's good. I *see* a DF from Andy coming up...

Posted by JohnC 08/15/2010 at 02:26 PM

Hi all. Been a while since Roger's been in a final, so I thought I'd make a reappearance :-)

Posted by jewell - Make tea, not war. 08/15/2010 at 02:26 PM

What scoreboarding said. :)

Posted by Andrew 08/15/2010 at 02:26 PM

Two more holds, 5-4 Murray with a break. Federer digs out of a 0-30 hole with some big serves. My mum has just brough me quiche and chips: as a real man, I'm tucking in.

Posted by TripleF(FedFanForever): Not Fuchsia! Pink it is. 08/15/2010 at 02:26 PM

ladyjulia
It's gonna happen now

Posted by ladyjulia 08/15/2010 at 02:27 PM

TripleF,
