Federer Takes Third Set Against Djokovic

Posted by hiphopmama on September 6, 2008

This one is still in progress, but I had to get my two cents in. Federer probably should have won the second set, but I gotta hand it to Djokovic for hanging in there. Late in the third, however, he started letting the crowd get to him and generally lost his composure a bit, just enough for Roger to capitalize and grab the set and take a 2-1 lead. The crowd has been clearly rooting for Fed, even cheering when Djokovic would miss a first serve, and at one point he even gave the crowd a sarcastic thumbs up when he missed a shot. 

What does he expect? He was essentially taunting the crowd after the Roddick match for rooting against him, as if that was any surprise. Roddick is right: if you’re gonna dish it out, as Djokovic does in his admittedly funny impressions of other players, you gotta be able to take it too, as he proved unable to do when Roddick poked fun at his unending list of “injuries.” 

Come on, Roger, let’s finish this one off in four.
