Yah.

Fed holds for 6-5 3rd set at 40-15 with 2 aces (one of them a 2nd serve). Why couldn't he do that at 5-3 3rd set? Hmmph. Break for the match Fed.

More break chances wasted. From 0-40 to deuce.

Sigh. 3 match points gone, the last on a 2nd serve. Break Fed.

Ah, Federer wins! This was a great win for him. He can't be too far behind Nadal. I just hope he can carry this forward into Rome and not have a letdown like he did in Miami after he won Indian Wells.

Whew. Yes!!!!!!! Fed breaks for 7-5 3rd set at Ad Fed from 40-0 to 40-30 to 40-40 (2nd serve) (2nd serve) on a 2nd serve. Great job Roger. The match was 2 hours 38 minutes long.

Congrats Roger on returning to #2. Hopefully you can get 2 more weeks at #1.

Well, post 2011 USO Federer has been just fab. He's really back to his best or as close as a Fed fan could reasonably hope for from a thirty year old. On fast courts he's still the greatest in my opinion. Still the number one first strike player out there. Please, please, PLEASE make those grass courts faster again.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Bruce, I've just read a news story about 49 bodies being found near San Juan, probably killed by Los Zetas. As our resident Mexican, can you tell us if there's any hope this war between different drug cartels (and drug cartels vs police) is going to end any time soon, or is this what people in certain parts of Mexico can expect to live (and die) with for years to come?

Well,as long as there's life within us,there's always hope.The real issues are trying to capture the bosses and cut off their shipping routes...which,for years,our presidents made NO effort to do b/c the narcos were their close buddies.

Hypothetically speaking,we could make serious inroads during the next administration if the new president--likely Pena Nieto--did a good job.We expect(/hope) that,in the next decade,things will be better.An advantage we have is that we don't totally insist on putting the bosses in jail as in the U.S. or Europe;we're using special forces soldiers so,if we can pinpoint the bosses estates(usually secluded in rural areas),there's no problem if the soldiers go in shooting and kill the bastards.

Part of the problem is that the older bosses usually had a sort of code...where the inter-cartel violence was confined to specific targets...not so many innocent people getting killed.Even now,most of the killing--at least in MY city--takes place where you'd expect: Bars,nightclubs,casinos,etc....However,when most of the old bosses died off or went to prison,they were replaced by hit men who had ascended within the cartels,and THOSE guys have lower,less-refined standards,hence the increased brutality.

I suppose it's a positive sign that the bosses used to move about freely without fear,and now they stay in hiding to avoid the federalis and soldiers.Thank you for your concern,C.W.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

I'm a bit late posting this but what do you guys think of Nadal threatening not to play Madrid next year due to the blue clay? Seems kind of silly to me. It may be a new/different surface but it's new for everyone. I hope he does boycott it. That's at least a thousand points he is guaranteed not to get.

I find the whole reasoning behind the blue clay both patronising and insulting to the players and fans considering the result. Time the owner used his skills in Las Vegas, rather than stinking up the tour with his poor taste and last century kitsch ideas.

It's about the tennis.

Hey, Jimmie, there are reports (again) in Danish media that Dortmund is (again) interested in Bendtner. Despite Dortmund having already said a few times, they are not. How would you feel about that signing?
