Re: Inconsistency of Roger Federer

it's easy to be consistent when you campaign for surfaces to be removed for the calender

it's easy to perform when you know that the same game will work on any surface, due to homogenization

it's easy to have confidence to repeat wins and streaks when the ATP bows down to your every demand

Re: Inconsistency of Roger Federer

I'm no Annacone, but if I was federer's coach I would advise him to start pushing like ferrer/mugray, that'll keep UE's down and give his overall game more consistency. His overly aggressive style is precisely the reason why dull has always owned him.

Re: Inconsistency of Roger Federer

Agreed, Noserer should turn into Roddick game style wise: pushing serve bot. Hopefully such tactics will see him of top 30 next year.

that's the worst thing he could do

this isn't 2006 when frauderer could out run and out rally choking mugs and thereby appeared to be fit and athletic

if frauderer wants to keep in with a shout, he has to be aggressive

come to the net, use the forehand to approach, cross court and down the lines, attack the second serve (lol), look for the break in a set then serve it out

take some tips from sampras, basically

Or he could turn into Dull: no serve pusher

Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done)

He is done. No more Slams for Olderer, even semis will be difficult to reach. He should retire to save his tainted legacy before it's too late.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done)

In my opinion, next year will be the last year Fed will be in the top 4, 2 more years as a major contender.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done)

He'll still beat 95% of the tour on an even semi-good day. I'm not a fan but tennis will be very weird without him.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done)

He is not done yet, but the decline is obvious. As people before said, it is very much up and down. He can still play like in the glory-days, but he cannot sustain that level for longer that one match.

Fortunately for him, his worst is still better than the best of anyone outside the top-15. I don't see him leaving the top-10 anytime soon.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done)

He was the 2nd best player of 2012.

The H2H against his main rivals:
Djokovic: 2 - 3
Murray: 3 - 2
Nadal: 1 - 1

Not bad for a 31 year old playing against 5 years younger opponents.

Roger will not fall out of the top 4 next year as the haters eagerly want and already started saying.

He has declined. That's obvious, just watch a match from 2005/2006. But his talent and natural ability allow him to still win slams and beat prime top opponents much to the despair of he haters.

4 more years haters and then you can finally rest.

Broken record that has been literally been said since 2002, even before Federer was winning slams.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done)

No chance he's done. If he can still win Wimbledon in 2012, which was done by beating Andy Murray (who has his best year to date), as well as still top the World Rankings when all of the other top 4, apart from maybe Nadal seem to be improving, then I don't think he'll be done for another four or five years. I'm not the biggest fan of fed, mainly due to his annoying fans and his obvious, but never talked about arrogance, but there's not doubting he is still one of the best on tour and plays probably the most exciting Tennis when he's on form. Of course lapses in concentrating are becoming more and more regular and his backhand is becoming weak, but when on the biggest stages fed steps up and always goes deep in the important tournaments. I don't think he cares about masters any more, and rightfully so. He earned the chance to miss these tournaments and we'll see him focus less and less on them, including the ones he enters. It might not happen but we could very well see fed do will in Rio 2016 but it all depends and even if he makes it the court surface may not suit him.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.
