We should be appreciative of Federer though, because we will never see anything like him again. The fact he can still compete for slams ever after the erosion of his physical skills is really a greater testament to the natural talent he has than the period of time when he was dominating the tour.
now i know why a lot of people respect nalbandian, now i also why a lot of people are also disappointed. what a freaking gifted player with poor mental ability. the ball striking was phenomenal but mental fortitude and shot selection at crunch times are very questionable...
A lot of players on tour would be better off never going for the dropshot.
