Roger Rolls

Roger Federer was in fantastic form, and he made quick work of this match.

He broke Janko Tipsarevic on his first seve for a 2-0 lead, and this match was never really in doubt after that.

Federer had his whole game working and was absolutely unbeatable on his serve. He lost only eight service points on the day. Needless to say, a player isn't going to lose a lot of matches when that happens.


Ferrer Edges del Potro

Ferrer just played in Paris on Sunday, but he didn't let that slow him down in this match, as he looked like the fresher player from the start. 

He jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the first and cruised to a first-set victory. Throughout that first set, Juan Martin del Potro looked a little sluggish and off. 

Things were different in the second set. Del Potro's power began to take over and he easily took the second and appeared to have all momentum. 

That set up for a well-played final set that stood at 4-4 before Ferrer got a break and the victory.
