Roger Federer just keeps on getting it done. He made quick work of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France, 6-2,6-3,6-2. Some of it had to do with Federer's presence. Tsonga, who had been playing great, was nervous I'm sure. Tsonga had also just finished playing a couple of wars beating Nicolas Almagro of Spain, 6-3, 6-4, 4-6,6-7, and 9-7 in the round of 16. Then, in the quarterfinals, he defeated Novak Djokovic, 7-6,6-7,1-6,6-3,6-1.
He had expended a lot of energy, but you've got to give Federer credit. Personally, I think he's lucky that Rafa has been hurt and has benefited most from his absence. I think Rafa is better when at 100%, but Federer has earned another final. But the greatest of all time. Yes he has the record, but don't think the competition is as demanding as in the 70's, 80's and 90's except for Nadal, who is hurt.
Andy Murray should give him a good match and may win. We'll see.
Serena plays Justine Henin in what should be a great match. These women have played each other 13 times already with Serena holding a 7-6 lead. Should be a classic. Two thirty Sat. Morning on ESPN2. Tivo for sure. Sunday morning at 2:30, Federer vs Murray also ESPN2.
