Nah. He was on fire.The first set was the weakest of the semi-final with Murray (and even that was a joy to watch), and it's where he made all of his mistakes. But he went the whole match with only 11 unforced errors and breezed through the last 2 sets with the exception of that marathon game where Murray managed to hold onto his serve.

serena's amazing, I'm with you there. But I don't find women's tennis as compelling and no one can touch federer in terms of the beauty and elegance of his game.
