He just hasn't got the tools to deal with these monsters anymore.

Absolutely. He used to dominate those type of players by playing faster than them and controlling their powershots tremendously well. He doesn't have the game to do that anymore - or at least he hasn't in a while. Furthermore, his return of serve has gotten progressively worse over the last couple of years.

Unless Federer works REALLY hard at his game, I think we've seen the last of JesusFed.

Proud fan of Olderer, the GOAT.

The dude is old. Everything ends sometime... It's sad, but it's the only way it could've happened. RIP, JesusFed. Welcome, Grandpa Fed, bringing back the memories sometimes.

Huge hitters.

And it's because he moves less well and returns less well. He's just not putting them under service pressure, he chips back all the returns and they just smack the ball away or put him on the defence.

They can just hit through him as a result.

Re: Federer's last 3 losses at Grand Slams

He shanks his forehand a lot more then the past but what is really killing him is not converting break point chances...

Once upon a time he was supreme on those points but now....he's, to put it nicely, really bad.

Re: Federer's last 3 losses at Grand Slams

Funny, Federer used to have his way with these guys. They've finally turned the tables on him. His returns and defensive slices just aren't going to get it done against that kind of power anymore.

Re: Federer's last 3 losses at Grand Slams

Roger needs to do martina navratilova or andre agassi regroup work on fitness and power; he has the natural skills its not that the other guys are outplaying him; but his game is so error ridden right that he geniunley needs to sit down and ask what he wants to do!

Re: Federer's last 3 losses at Grand Slams

I noticed him limping and stretching his lower body a lot (by doing squats).

Re: Federer's last 3 losses at Grand Slams

The big hitters were Federer's bread and butter in his prime but he isn't that player anymore. Still going to be a threat at slams but there are a lot of players who have the tools to take out Federer circa '10 on a good day.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Federer's last 3 losses at Grand Slams

his tennis so laissez faire/carefree he needs a really good hardcourt season to get his game back in time for the US Open; he needs to use the masters-shields as stepping stone not because he needs them to buff up his resume but because gone are the days when he can play sloppy in the other tournaments and play killer tennis in the slams.
