Fed the only one left not having dropped a set

So, as we reach the business end of the Aussie Open – the big four will face up in the semis.

Fedex remains the only one yet to drop a set and his progress has been the serene Fed of old.  Here’s a player, despite his advancing years that continues to learn – despite those around him upping the standard he continues to find a way to compete – maybe playing his best tennis ever.

Tomorrow’s semi with Rafa will be interesting – will he be able to manage his own energy while manipulating Fed’s tempo to the effect that in the past has resulted in him being his nemesis, or will Fed maintain the serene flow that saw him blaze past  Rafa at the O2. There Rafa seemed to have half a mind on the Davis Cup final, as well as end of season fatigue.
