    The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?

    They're at a tie-break in the first set.

    I do pretty mean imitation of Mac's serve, Jim.

    Federer is looking pretty sluggish today and yet he still took the first set...

    He for sure isnt playing as well as he did against Roddick. Djockovic really needed to take that first set if he wanted to win this match. I think Roger will win in straight sets now.

    Looks like Tiger and Roger will be teaming up to do a new commercial together! Roger takes the first 2 sets in tiebreaks!

    I've been a casual fan of Federer for several years now. After this Open, I am now a full fledged fan. Early in the match as Djokovic was exhibiting the occasional mini-tantrum, Federer just stood by calmly and waited for play to resume. Even though he didn't play his best today, he still found a way to win against a very capable opponent. He is always gracious in victory and defeat. He IS the definition of professionalism and class. Congrats Roger!!
