"Catch ya later. andrea Says: mmt, fed was uncharacteristically cocky (but in a good way) in his semi final presser. if you compare the AO semi final presser to the FO where he met soderling or even wimby when he met roddick, he wasn't going on about how 'those guys don't have much of a chance cos they're playing me' and that kind of attitude. during the other GS's he said the usual stuff 'gonna be a tough match' 'give them credit' 'don't underestimate'. he was definitely more fired up and letting some zingers fly this time around compared to the usual stuff. of course, the term cocky can be seen as a negative and in the end, it wasn't negative at all and he lived up to all his comments. he's just usually not that fired up vocally before a final. but if i had been playing like he had been, heck, i would've been saying the same things!"
""Then what's the good of gettin 'cocky and calling it scarlet?""
