Every player left except for maybe Cilic. This is not the same Federer who is going to come out and outclass everyone, but rather grind it out, use his experience and patches of really good play.

after today's performance (and the one against Hewitt) i thought the mood will be exactly inverse - WOW Fed is back!

And it is the right one imo. Smashing the most inform player around in style was rather spectacular and i think no one could beat Roger right now.

Only obstacle could be Muzza but right now Roger is stronger, he's not making 50-50 in/out from BH and he's serving good, and, and..

When he is in such form, he is unbeatable in best of 5. That's what i think

Oh, he very well could beat everyone left as well, but in the past, him beating everyone was a given with maybe one or two players giving him a little bit of worry; t's not quite so simple now.

Federerer only won against weak players like Blake and Roddick, young Nadal saved the sport literally by bashing him many times and keeping him in check . Now that Nole has grown up and a few others, the party is over

He beat Djokovic 4 times in slams. Do those count?

Re: Who can stop Federer from winning the Australian Open 2010?

The question is "who can stop?", not "who will stop?"
Can stop - answer anybody who is left
Will stop - answer probably nobody

Re: Who can stop Federer from winning the Australian Open 2010?

Quick reality check for those saying Federer is in 'God mode' or whatever it is. Against Davydenko it was a strange match, almost like they swapped bodies midway through the second set. Anyway, it doesn't change the fact that he was battered for a set and a bit and Davy's failure to take the break point at 3-1* turned the match on its head. Everyone left in the draw, maybe apart from Djokovic, has more bottle than Davydenko to see that situation out. I'm not saying Davydenko beat himself, I'm not saying Federer wasn't great the last two and half sets - he was. But Davydenko contributed an awful lot. When he was playing his best tennis, Federer had no answer. Anyone who thinks Federer is playing like he did three years ago is wrong tbh.

On that note, I think he will win it. I'm pretty certain he'll make the final, I think Tsonga has more chance of beating him than Nole's all-round game does, for some reason. But if Murray has a good serving day and gets good length, Federer will be in trouble. Federer hates length. He loves the short balls Davy was feeding him third set. Murray must cut those out. If Cilic makes the final then yeah, only one winner. So my answer is Murray, and maybe Tsonga.

Re: Who can stop Federer from winning the Australian Open 2010?

No one since all thats left are mental clowns who will just self destruct at the sight of Fed or over one point like Davydenko showed us last night. Tsonga, Murray, or Cilic? None of these guys have what it takes to get it done.

Only one player has the ability to get it done both mentally and physically and thats Nadal. The rest don't
