I should’ve gone to bed earlier but I had about 2 hours before I got up at 5am to watch this match. It looked like I could sneak in some more sleep after The Mighty Fed dominated Simon in the first 2 sets. But it just had to go 5 sets. Sheesh.
Before that match I was nervous because Simon is 2-0 against Fed. He runs really well and his counter-punching game bothers Federer. But after those first 2 sets, I never expected this. Boy, it was nerve-wrenching in the 5th set. Whew, but Federer pulled it out. It’s a good test for Fed. Now he’ll just need to rest and recuperate. Actually I need that too.
