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.
I'll wait and see but I am hopeful grass can rejuvenate a healthy Fed's game. I am definitely much more confident than I was in 2010 and in 2011 after seeing his first few matches at SW19.
Thanks for this, totally agree health is of the utmost importance. Didn't Fed have back pain when he lost to Berdych at Wimby. Semis at Roland Garros were terrific if he was 'holding back'. Now on to the push this summer
