Marat Safin, Mirza Sania wins

Federer's match going on, taken 3-1 lead against Seppi

4-1 now, he just played an amazing point, moved court length (his side) twice in same point (fwd-back-fwd-back) and won the point.

Btw ball is swinging too much after being hit.

Federer wins 6-1, 7-6 and 7-5 but NOT a convincing win.2nd set was very tight, up and down, he almost lost 2nd set when he saved set point in at 5-6.3rd set was tight too, he was almost broken twice and then it took him 4 match points, one when leading 5-4 and 3 more to win last game.He needs to improve his backhand and not just depend no forehand.

Yes his backhand is good in a sense that he can place ball anywhere from any position on court. But it doesnt have enough power. These days he tends to take all balls on his forehand (even on first serve of the opponent) and uses backhand only when he thinks that ball is coming too fast to take it on forehand.(i.e. he cant take extra step to take ball on forehand side)P.S: Added useful links on top of the first post.
