Federer v Nalbandian ● QF US Open 2005 Highlights

I thought this match deserved a longer and better quality upload than what was already posted.

Federer avenging his loss to Nalbandian from the US Open 2003 with a straight 3 set coaster, merely conceding 7 games to the Argenitinian. Simply put: prime Fed primarily going into primal Optimus Prime mode.

    Wait, that was Nalby's first serve that was replayed, no? I dont see the problem? Unless it was his second which would just make no sense though?

    I'd watch this beautiful, precise match all-day long instead of Novak Boringovic's constant defense and return of balls in a weak modern era of tennis.
