Well 2008 was probably where he started to decline from his unbelievably high peak as guys like Fish, Simon, Karlovic and even Blake beat him.

The first signs I saw that he wasn't the player of 04-07 were at the 09 USO final as Fed used to eat big hitters/ballbashers alive yet he was shanking Delpo's missiles.
