After hearing last night what Billy Jean had to say to Roger about his backhand volley, I thght. it might be worthwhile for Roger to pick the brains of other greats for their observations. Then, this am, I thght. of Borg, who's broke & knows more about winning them b2b than anyone. He should hire Borg & have him in his box in Paris & perhaps London. He may have one thing to say that's really helpful to Roger. Of course, Borg could be an ignorant bastard these days... But the concept was appealing.
Yep Borg would do a good adviser to Fed, but his own game was very defensive while Roche won the French while being an attacking Australian, so he's the guy. The question is to know if Fed has enough time to get consistent in terms of:
-solid approach shots
-management of strong top spin (esp. on his BH, esp. lefty
If he goes deep in the three clay tournies it means he's gotten a good level of consistency. With the rest, experience, confidence, toughness, stamina, good baseline game, he could do it....
