    Choked..had the match..but credit to the youngest she did it when it mattered..down breaks..down set points.. Good luck to Kenin in the final..This loss should drive Barty to play better next time..

    Now Barty is gone..Fed surely will go tonight..barring some minor miracle.. My interest in the tournament will die tonight..

    You bastard..you jinxed her.. Lol! Nah Kenin rose to the occasion and was so tough when the clutch plays came..she nailed it.. Great win..she pulled it out of the fire..was gone but rose from the ashes..while Barty wobbled.. Barty will regroup..assess what happened..and learn from it.

    Ps.. gee how good were my sporting cliches..bahahaha bahahaha..

    She’s all class, and a very nice girl too, post match chat was awesome, can’t not like her.

    Yea he still has that little groin/Leg niggle by the looks , it’s going to be nervous times, but we pretty much know which way it will go unfortunately.

    Well fed may have fooled the joker once but it didn’t last, it’s all unfolding how predicated, not looking good for the best of all time, well done roger. Can be proud whatever the result my man. Much love.!!

    Injury and a tough campaign caught up with the Fed..if he snagged the first set ..which he should have..who knows..played some blinding tennis in it.. But Djokovic once again brilliant on his favourite court.. Looks like number 17 Grand Slam coming up..

    Joker will win the mens easily.

    As for Barty/Kenin, I couldn't watch the match because I was at work, but wow... it was awesome to see two competitors wearing the same out and same colours lol. Fila must be happy with that :grinning:

    Federer is 38. He's a brilliant player and is #3 in the world still, but time waits for no man, or in Serena's case, no woman.
