Looking at the way he is playing, he looked like he was playing the clay courters game of defensive game with some offense like Nadal does. I think since the french open he has changed his game so he better prepare himself to win the French next year. If you notice before the french he used to come to the net more and was more agressive,then as soon as the french ended he started staying more behind the base line much like Nadal does with some occasional agression.
He is preparing to own Nadal in 08 Clay season
hmm. Well if anyone could do it, probably would be Federer. But still...I'm going to have to see it to believe it.
Owning Rafa on Clay will require
something very special.
BTW - I disagree about him not caring about the AO or USO...he still cares (albeit unequally) about all the Slams. Wimbledon is the most important - then maybe winning the French (though he doesnt admit this). And then apparently continuing his run in NYC.
