ROGER FEDERER: They worked well. That's what I mean, mixing it up, coming to the net, hitting dropshots. You can't hit them against everybody, you know. There are certain types of players that don't allow you to do it, and others you can do it all the time. Today was sort of the right time to do them, but, you know, I'm happy I got to learn how to use it over the years. I used to not be a fan of the dropshot at all. I always thought it was a shot you only hit when you're panicking from the baseline, when you're scared maybe to take on the fight, you know.
it's good to hear such comments from federer... i really hope that he doesn't stop at trying anything
... (next up... bigger rackets... double handed play...?) reminds me of an anime i watched (initial d) that teaches a good lesson about a battle -- if you believe only in winning beautifully... you will only constraint yourself in a cocoon and your growth will be restricted by it... in a battle... winning is all that counts. so i hope federer will try anything and everything... as long as it's not against any rules...!
