Re: What does federer need to work on before AO 2012 to maximize slam chance?
He just needs to work on closing out matches. He's riding on a 17 win streak now and the last lost he suffered so far, he held 2 match points! Problem with Federer, he's used to winning matches on a huge margin but when opponent gets too close for comfort, he mentally collapses. He just needs to be tough it out at pressure points and not keep letting match points get away from him.
With the game, there's really not much he can improve that won't require a time traveling machine. For a 30 year old he's as good as he can be, Nadal is still the only one who I will probably bet on 80-20 at grandslams for him. With Djokovic it's still 50-50 except maybe on AO where Djokovic has the edge.
