Did you watch the US Open? Roger Federer just made a superb came back to win Gaël Monfils 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 7-5, 6-2.
What a match!
Federer was down two sets and Monfils even had 2 match points in the fourth set. I watched how Federer saved that 2 match points. It was fun to watch how things can change in sport. The intensity and the mental toughness of a champion.
Federer said in a interview after the match, “I knew I could play better tennis, and I got off to a good start and was feeling all right. But then when I was down two match points, I wasn’t feeling so great anymore. I thought: ‘This was it, the last point, man. Just go down fighting. Don’t miss an easy shot and let him have it.’”
Roger will play Marin Cilic in the semi-finals. He has not lost to Cilic in his career so that makes his the favourite to advance to the finals. However, anything can happen in sports. I would expect Marin to fight all the way in his
first grand slam semi-finals.
What is your pick on the finalist in this year's US Open finals? Will it be Federer vs Djokovic again or any dark horse like Nishikori or Cilic to make it to the finals?
Let me know your thoughts.
