What a coincidence that his serve, forehand, and movement look worse when he's playing them....the best returners and retrievers in the game.

They look worse, period, regardless of who he's playing. Did you not just watch his recent match to Wawrinka? Oh but that's just a little weird right? And all the sudden he starts losing to Blake, Gonzo, etc. They all just incredibly upped their game, huh? And Nadal's incredible returns magically cause his 1st serve percentage, not his aces, his service winners, his percentage
to fall to sub-40 levels? Whereas it was consistently 65%+ in his former years? If you honestly think Federer's been playing at a high level the past 6 months, we haven't been watching the same game. Goodness, Federer can't keep a forehand in the court to save his life and you think his level hasn't dropped? His absolute most dominant shot?
