Fifth set: Federer 6-2, 7-6, 5-7, 4-6, 2-2 Anderson* (*denotes server): “Let’s go Roger, let’s go” is the impartial chant from the Court 1 crowd. Poor Kevin. He’s a really nice guy, you know! But there’s barely any applause when he wins a point. There’s more when he double-faults for 15-all. Classy. In that context it’s even more impressive when Anderson dusts himself down to win the next two points, making it 40-15. He holds. No sign of a break yet.
Fifth set: Federer* 6-2, 7-6, 5-7, 4-6, 2-1 Anderson (*denotes server): Federer drills a backhand long for 0-15, making the crowd wince and groan. Then he nets a volley, making it 0-30. This is a huge chance for Anderson, though there’s not much he can do about a fine ace out wide from Federer, who wins the next point with a forehand punch down the line for 30-all. Federer holds to 30, serving brilliantly.
