If you’re wondering what this all means for Federer, he’s still doing what he always does: finds ways to get deep into draws and keep his fans’ hopes alive.
The way this championship resolved itself is a perfect example of the complicated world of Federer. He looks terrible throughout the round-robin and even in the SF where he clearly was not with enough quality to compete with Zverev.
The Thiem win was a desperate Federer and Thiem looked a little deer-caught-in-the-headlights. No shock there though, as I said earlier, this was a time for Thiem, playing an out-of-sorts and old Federer. Should’ve pounced. But that’s what makes him Federer.
Then Roger got an already SF-bound Anderson, so edge there to Fed. He played well there at times, but nothing special at all.
So, having said that Federer was out-classed in London, the guy he did play to essentially two TBs in the SF runs-away from Novak in the final? So does that mean that Federer could’ve won the ATP Finals? Lol.
That’s the madness.
All you need to know about Federer at this point is what happened against Zverev with the Swiss serving at 5-6 in the first set. The match was pretty even at that point, apparently.
Then he was broken to love, literally handing the set (and the match) to the German. Nothing more you can say about that. Really poor stuff from the Maestro.
Overall, the tennis throughout was pretty mediocre in London.
Let’s just say the boys are burnt. Take a vacation and see you all in Australia.
Then again: those of us here at Mcshow Blog will continue to throw hay-makers and kisses.
What about the Federer Controversy? Collusion and corruption!
