and a good service on the middle line 40-15

Long ball from Fed 15-0
and a good serve with a good forehand from Q 30-0
and an ace 40-0 and a good forehand from Fed makes Q hit the net 40-15
2nd serve
and Q hits the ball in the net 40-30

Fed looks nice in Black and Querrey seems to be willing to fight hits the ball hard and agressive!

Can be an interesting match but if Feds serve keeps working he will be fine!

I am reading that its just started to rain there, how bad is it coz we don't want any interruptions, just a quick warm up for Fed will do in this Rd1.

now that's too bad, for Fed to be unable to hold his serve is worrying for me, i think Fed needs to do something about it, to get broken so easily by every tom,dick and harry is not a good thing! well early times but let's see!

TLKF, you are too good, I will leave it to you until you need me.

First set Roger, Mark Petchy is just saying that he is giving up too many break points.

I just hope that with one set under his belt he will now settle into the match.

well msflossie, tell you something that you might already know, mark patchey and many analyst on BBC are just way too pro-djoko and anti-Fed, that's my experience of listening to them anyways! I have noticed that Fed seems to play too fast of late, he doesn't stop to think for a moment, no matter what happens, he seems to be in a hurry, at least my prediction's first part has been proven right!
6-4 First Set to Fed! I also predicted 7-6 and 6-2 in the later sets but I am changing the score of second set to a similar 6-4 scoreline in Fed's favour!

Fed won his first game, made three first serves out wide and won all three of those points, lost one point on a second serve but then came back and won that game 40 15. Yes I know this about the BBC but Mark Petchy is actually saying some quite nice things today.

Hey msflossie, mark petchey sometimes comes up with nice things too, i acknowledge, Peter Flemming is a good fellow in my opinion! That Barry cowan, Barry Milns and Marcus on BBC are waxing and singing praises of Djoko all the time and v quick to point out any Fed's flaws and all!
Thanks for the coverage msflossie, 40-15 is a good hold and I think with one set in the bag, Fed will start to play more freely and relax a lot more!

yeah, very good work from Fed again, showing his qualities to break serve even when Querrey was one point away from Game Point! This must lift fed's spirits and I hope that he consolidates the break and win the second set easily as well! Hope that Fed keeps his focus!

First game on Federer's serve won to love. He seems to have dipped a bit on the Q service games. Come Fed get your concentration back. Q wins to love.

Fed just breaks Q with a superb return of serve. Now he has to hold onto his serve and then he will be one game away from the win.

Game set and match to our man, he hardly worked up a sweat, I think he will be happy with that performance. First round matches are always very tricky. Federer normally plays himself into tournaments.

I now need to go and do some food shopping for my elderly landlady, hope the Nadal match is not up next.

I liked his serves both 1st and 2nd were very good ok

Forehand was very good his backhand swings a bit soemtimes good sometimes not but overall it wasn't taht bad he won in straights and thats what matters
