Is that a video of Fed kidnapping Nadull so he can't show up at RG? Then yes.

Re: Does Federer need to do this to win the French?

I've always said that to beat Nadal in the French Open, there was ONLY ONE way :

make a superb drop shot just beside the post, with a little bit sliced effect :

he comes to take it running like crazy as usual ... and hurts the post.

That's the tactics which Wilander had advised Federer to beat Nadal in the French

(at least I believe so because he said he had a tactics to beat Nadal in the French ... and it's impossible with another way)

Great players always have great strategy

Off topic mate.

Federer needs Nadal to be injured or really ill to win FO, if he is lucky.

Heh, I don't think anything Fed does will make a difference, although yes I would like to see them both in the final again

Re: Does Federer need to do this to win the French?

Lol, its not going to make any difference in the French, but Nadal really tagets Feds backhand moreso than any other player i have seen. I think this is the difference between the two players at the moment, with Nadal's high kicking groundies, Feds cant generate enough backhand pace one handed, and Nadal attacks the short reply

C'mon Australia!!!

Re: Does Federer need to do this to win the French?

Actually there's another way for Nadal to be beaten in the French :

that the organizers use very very light balls which don't take the lift at all like in Roland-Garros 1976 :

it was the only way Borg was beaten there

(with the first edition in 1973 when he was 17 years old ... but Nadal didn't take part in Roland-Garros 2003 and 2004 when he was 17-18)

But apart from that, Borg was never beaten in Roland-Garros ...
