He has the game to be successful at all the Slams. I mean he grew up playing on clay for 6 months of the year, and he knows to move on the surface which is unlike many of the hardcourt/fast court players.
What chance now of the Swiss swooping on Hewitt’s home slam, the Australian Open, the title he covets most?
That comment was about Hewitt wanting the Australian Open the most, not Federer, though of course Roger would like to win it.
His game is suited in Australia, he has done reasonably well in the lead up tournaments and made the semis in the 2000 Olympics, so he can play on Rebound Ace.
I think the mindset that he might have going into the AO, with the sacking of Lundgren, and hopefully he remembers some of his advice, is going to be of interest.
If he avoids Nalbandian and has improved his conditioning he has the chance to do very well.
No problems about the typing, I am just very slow when it comes to typing.
