Re: Federer: Like A Fine Wine, Better With Age. Buy Or Sell?
I think Federer is a different player today. He has accepted his physical decline and looks to win points using tactics instead.
Previously he challenged himself to play the game of his opponent and beat him at that. He knows being Olderer he can do that to the likes of Novak, Murray and Nadal.
His defensive skills have deteriorated, exposed by defeats to Berdych, Tsonga, Delpo at slams. He has tried to replace that with guile and variations.
Mentally he is more at peace than he was in 2008. Having beautiful twin girls puts things in perspective and relaxes him from obsessing over results. That's helped his game.
Is he better? Maybe. He's different. Some areas declined, others matured.
