Obviously this video proves that Federer hasn't declined at all since 2007

The game bores me now

Federer - Del Potro

Other ways are possible but difficult. Altough the highly aggressive groundstrokes of players like Tsonga or Del Potro also work sometimes. But certainly not every time.
And big servers never seemed to be a problem for Federer. Roddick was not. And present day big servers like Raonic or Isner are neither.

On the low bouncing indoor courts he is till using that tactic a lot.

Yup, Fed was great at neutralizing big servers.

The real shame is that Roddick changed his game so much post-2004 in an attempt to beat Roger, but it really screwed him up. His changes made him more consistent but lowered his peak.

Roddick's approach shots from that match still make my eyes bleed. The guy was a complete joke tactically.

And still won countless tournaments and was a consistent top player?

But problem cannot be found?

Weak era, it's not complicated.

True, Roddick seemed so dumb on court, coming silly to the net like no one does any more
But even so, Roger was only hitting well-placed shots, but I kinda preferred what I saw last week against Tsonga or Murray
I watched all of his matches in both tournaments (aside from this year's loss to Nadal).

Yeah: it's just you.

How can it be true?

Fed has an explosive shot in 07, his game is the same today with slower speed. He still won with 50 UEs shows the muggery in the tour.

Fed in ao 2007
Possibly the best hard ourter of all time

Fed in 2014
Getting by a weak era with insane talent alone

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Both the semi final performances of Federer and Gonzalez in this tournament were pretty much perfect. You don't strike the ball much cleaner than what these two did in their respective matches...

Life is an orange and you're just a little pip.

Oh lord what sort of dark times tennis would be in if everyone blindly rushed to net against Federer.
