There certainly were a lot of noisy Roger ones, hence my point with similar thoughts to your own but they just tend to drown everyone else out anyway. I imagine some neutrals must have been swayed to cheering for Stefanos.
    I was there today. Lots of Fed fans chanting DC style ( I really feel that sort of behaviour for one player is only acceptable in their home country as then it's understandable to support your players ). However they left right after match leaving loads of folk to give Stefanie his due at the oncourt interview . Was a fabulous match - and loved seeing the Fed luvvies so discomfited. Really enjoyed Thiem as well. Been wanting to see them both for ages so was great that not only did I seee them but they won.

    Andy Murray - more exciting than a carnival weekend in Rio

    Stefanos is rather fab!
    Great match to be at. Stefanos is like a young Bjorn Bjorg!

Great stuff - I'm really looking forward to the final no matter who is on the other side of the net.
    I think Stef is going to become a huge star in tennis.

    I’m guessing there will be quite a few gaps in the crowd after yesterday unless the Federer fans have managed to shift their tickets.

    I've thought that since Steph first came on the scene - his whole package reminds me of Bjorn. I wonder when we see the real young Borg on the tour. I believe he's playing Juniors, isn't he?

    Hope you're wrong because they both completely deserve their places in the final
