Will TMC Loss Affect Federer Forever?
A few times in history, a player has had one critical loss and they have never been the same player again. Most people will probably be thinking that he will get over it, but mentally, Roger could be more affected than he'll let on.
Roger only lost four matches in 05, but they were all of importance- RG SF, AO SF, TMC F. Plus, the finals win streak is gone, and he won't ever be ableto match that, or J-Mac's win/loss % again.
Now I'm not saying that Roger will sink like the Titanic, but it isn't out of the question that next year he might only pick up one slam. He might even return to his former mentally fragile state (90's - 02).
