And Federer on the other side showed that he isn't comfotable when he's behind, these are the matches that he looses. When he's on top he has nothing to fear but if he gets pressure he seems to loose his strengh sometimes.
No I wouldn't call Tommy a quitter though sometimes when he's behind he gets down on himself and makes it so much harder for him to play well.
As I've often said, both Tommy n Nicolas (Kiefer) suffer from mental frailty. With Tommy at least, there's some truth to the rumour that whilst on court he's thinking of that gorgeous blonde cheering him sat in row 1. With Kiefer though I really don't know what he thinks!

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards. Do try and understand the difference (TARDS)! Don't get me started on Choke-ovic though. Him I do despise. And his TARDS are the lowest of the low
