What Federer has to improve!

Obviously Federer has to improve parts of his game if he wants to stay number one.
Nadal has a record high points and also Djokovic isn´t too far avay. 200 points differecne in the race is nothing to stop improving on. (Last year yearend no.1 was settled a lot earlier)
So please vote what parts of game Federer need to improve.

Re: What Federer has to improve!

I think the title should be what do Nadal, and Nole have to improve to steal that no 1.

Go Andy!

Re: What Federer has to improve!

I think what Federer should do to improve is to move forward when Nadal hits to his backhand on clay, and take the ball on the rise. I think he struggles hitting high topspin on his backhand.

Re: What Federer has to improve!

Play more tournaments?

He only played two non-mandatory tourneys this year, both of which he won. He can surely scoop up a few more points by playing a few more events if things are getting tight. And a lot of the blame for his relatively low total is his run of poor form in March, when he went out early in both IW and Miami. Other than that, his results have still outshone everyone else.

Federer just needs to ignore the MTF twits.
