What can Grosjean do to Federer?

In my opinion the onle thing Grosjean can do to Federer is serve him a crouissant with some french fries.
No, seriously can this be at least a competitive match? I would love to see what happens to Roger in a tight 5 setter. Its been a long time Roger has been in a tight match. Is Roger in good enough fitness? Can he mentally get himself out of tight tiebreak situations. No one seems to be able to hold their serve against Fed. I expect Federer to move into the finals with relative ease. But I would love for Grosjean to put up a fight...

Re: What can Grosjean do to Federer?

I couldn't keep elaborating ... Federer doesn't turn me on at all. Seb is a bit better

Re: What can Grosjean do to Federer?

Roger will win with something like 6-3 6-4 6-2. At least a break in each set. Of course Roger won't lose serve even once.

Re: What can Grosjean do to Federer?

What about Seb's inside-outside forehand against Roger's backhand? I think Seb's forehand is better than Hewitt on that direction. The better way to attack Federer is going against his backhand.

Re: What can Grosjean do to Federer?

Poor Seb.. I think everybody who crosses Federers path this week will be used as a training buddy by Federer, the kinda training buddy that is just there to keep some of the balls in play, that is . I would root for Seb of course, but I think even a whole nation cheering couldn't help him.

Nah if Hewitt couldnt beat Federer I cant see how Grosjean will to be honest as I feel Hewitt is a better player than Grosjean anyway.
