Whose game threatens Roger the most?

I think Joachim Johannson could really pose a threat to Federer...

Who do you think could bother federer?

Justine Henin-Hardenne

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Nalbandian, Hewitt and Henman

Nalbandian and Hewitt were the only ones to take a set off Rogi at the AO and Tim is the only one who's beaten Rogi his this year and this difficulty against them is mirrored in their h2hs

v Nalbandian 2-5
v Henman 2-6
v Hewitt 3-7

Why is it Henman bothers him so much?

Which I don't understand, Fumus, because Nalbandian and Hewitt each have winning records against Henman.

Nalbandian-Henman 4-1
Hewitt-Henman 6-0 (maybe 7-0 after Rotterdam)....

Re: Whose game threatens Roger the most?

I think that Tim's style of game takes away the rallies away from you, and because he is a good volleyer, you are forced to pass him when he comes up. This caused a lot of problems because Roger finds his rhythm in the rallies.

However, in their last meeting, Roger was forcing Tim at the baseline, where Roger is MUCH stronger than Tim, which is why I think he won that match so easily. His serve was working very well too.

Re: Re: Whose game threatens Roger the most?

I wrote a long few paragraphs after the Rotterdam loss on why Henman troubles Federer, it's back a couple of pages in GM if you can find it. The reason why Hewitt and Nalbandian have much better records against Henman is because they're quicker and better counterpunchers than Federer will ever be - that's the nature of their playing style. Hewitt especially has Henman beaten before they even walk onto court.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Whose game threatens Roger the most?

Sjengster, I agree with your last statement, and it seems as if Tim's body language suggests just that....

Re: Re: Whose game threatens Roger the most?

I can't blame him though, especially after the drubbing that was the IW final back in 2002. Ironically Sunday's final might have been a little shorter, but it was still far more competitive than his first effort where I believe he didn't hold serve once in the first set and only once in the entire match. Hewitt would just love to play Henman all the time, he'd be back to no. 1 like a shot if he could.

Roger's own game.
