Fed and tiebreaks.

Normally Federer has been a beast win it comes to tiebreaks, sporting an astounding TB record.

However recently, it seems that he has been losing a lot more tie breaks than usual. Do you think that he's not as confident as he once was?

Re: Fed and tiebreaks.

I actually thought this too when I saw he'd lost the second set tiebreak to Berdych. I agree, probably just a phase or something.

Except the newcomers, no player has career tiebreak winning rate > 70% or < 30%.

Re: Fed and tiebreaks.

Rafa is in his head. At night, he keeps hearing yelps of Vamos ringing in his ears and hallucinating that a pair of clamdiggers are lying near his bed.

I'm telling you. He's waking up in a cold sweat.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

it may have more to do with his opponents feeling more confident against him... afterall, to get to a tie-break against the world #1 (of more than two years) could be a bit of a confidence booster (however temporary it may be)...

Re: Fed and tiebreaks.

roger is the master in tie breakers, i always am stunned to see how many tie breakers he won

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: Fed and tiebreaks.

His TB record was 17-5 something before the FO final and two of the losses were from the Rome final against Nadal(someone corrects me, if I'm wrong). After then, 4-4(4 wins in Halle, 1 loss in Paris+3 losses in Halle).

I think this is rather about his lack of concentration during the matches resulted from mental exhaustion after Paris than any other reasons. TB demands much more concentration and focus of players but it seemed that he just didn't have much enough in his tank for the whole week.

soonha, I agree, it takes more concentration in tie-breaks... hopefully, he won't be mentally exhausted during Wimbledon...

Since the second set of the Rome final its been
5 wins (Hartfied, Botanna, Gasquet, 2 Rochus)- 8 loses (3 Naldal, Massu, Gasquet, Rochus, Haas, Berdich).

Yeah i agree he has been struggling on tiebreaks lately, as well as trying to close out matches.

A service notice for Pete..

Does he really believes this is the same Federer of then?

Re: Fed and tiebreaks.

If only sensible players can prove they're one-dimensional and that have coaches who cheat poor Federer... After all, wins and GOAT status make a tennis player more special.
