Comments: I remember watching this match one Sunday morning on NBC. A few questions kept floating in my head as I watched Roddick & Federer slug it out. Those questions were "When in the world will this come to an end??? How long can these guys keep going at it!? Its 12-12 in the 5th. Hurry up already!" :P This was definitely the best I've seen Roddick play in a long time. I know he didn't win but he sure did USTA proud w/ his effort! As for Federer, eternal greatness has been achieved. Mighty congrats to the winningnest Men's Singles Champion in the open era!
Comments: Best play I’ve seen from Roddick in years but Federer still wins...Roddick will regret forever the backhand he missed in the 2nd set tiebreak as it would have given him a 2 set lead…the 5th set was incredible as each player had to hold his serve to stay in the match...Federer finally broke Roddick's impenetrable serve in the last game of the match and became arguably the best tennis player ever.

Comments: What a match. Best match between Federer and Roodick since 2004! The gap is closing in terms of strokes and consistency. This day it took all that Fed could muster to beat Roodick. Roddick played a near perfect match and is beginning to understand what it takes to beat a player like Federer. Classic for the record books and an enjoyment for all fans in tennis!
