Player B to win at least one set, main bet. Anderson win at a big price the sidebet.

Anderson's biggest failing on the big stage is not bottle (unlike so many) but a failure to avoid getting crocked. If he can somehow get on the court without slipping in the shower or tripping over a child's toy, he could cause a massive shock.

As good as Anderson serve is i cant see him troubling federer, he struggled at times v monfils who is not the same level as fed

Hope so, Anderson can't afford to be broken once, play for the tie breaker must be the strategy.

Yeah Anderson doesn't lack bottle in this fight, most players would have folded by now, Federer was desperate to win the tournament without dropping a set so it's no mean feat to take one off of him.

Reminiscent of Federer-Tsonga 2011, where a 2-0 set lead evaporated with Federer being unable to make any impact on opponent's serve.

Such an important hold.

Roger has to try unsettle him somehow but Anderson is staying in the zone

Again showed real gonads there.

The key is he is looking across the net at the actual player (not the myth) and believing he can win this

To be fair Roger has played way better in this set than the fourth.

But if Anderson just keeps his game steady and focused he should get a chance.

Some of the high pitched squealing from the inebriated 'it's coming home' crew is getting a bit intense.

The one thing I've never liked about the Wimbledon crowd is, there were more cheers and support for Roger in the 2012 final than there was for Murray, his home slam, I've always struggled to get my head around that. Imagine that in Basel.

Yeah mes. Incredible that they needed to see his tears (and an Olympic win) before they committed to backing him.

It would be ironic if Roger's self imposed lack of match fitness catches up with him here. If he goes down 2 points on his serve again I think that'll do it.

Cracking match though.

Ty mes, and good to have a match thread to post it in..

'The zone' is right, I don't think he was knocked out of it at all for the last 3 sets.
Shows he can be a big match player if he keeps an eye on conditioning and avoids injury.
