Federer has confirmed to Swiss media he had a hip issue in Madrid and Rome which got better for Paris but he was afraid of overworking it so he may have held back. I think as bad as it is, it can prove good in the end.
At last year's French he peaked, intentionally or not, there and had nothing much left for Wimbey because of niggles. If he can peak for Wimbledon and ride the wave until the end of the Olympics, he might go into the USO as favourite and even #1. Who knows.
Thanks for the info about the hip issue, I'm very grateful for every news on that topic
Fed usually hides his issues well but they are very important, esp. on grass, where he needs his best physical condition.
Yes I hope it will be good, and it's good if he managed to not overwork it in RG.
If he's well from now, everything is possible.
He looked sometimes nervous recently, which proves that he's very motivated for weeks to come, which is good.

I don't rate that high the performances in Madrid and Roma, but until Indian Wells he had great performances including all of his matches against Del Po, especially Rotterdam, Nadal in Indian Wells, Murray in Dubai, Tomic in Australia ...f
