I read you posts guys and for most of you I want to sing: "Don't you worry, everything's gonna be alright!".
Seriously guys, the way fed played the other day he would just have destroyed anyone else except maybe an inform nadal or indeed a never die canas! We all know fed should've (could've) won that match. The reason he lost it was that canas would not let it go and hung like a... pig
and the fact that fed made mistakes at the worst times! For the rest he was just above canas in term of play.
As some of you said he won matches he should've (could've) lost last year. I kind of agree with what nyctennisfan says. As long as fed plays as he does right now, there's no reason to be worried and I am not. That's true that he made many UEs but those were due to canas retrieving every single ball à la nadal, that's simply it!
I am sure fed will be fired up as ever comes monte carlo and knowing the guy is champ he will just make things clear to everyone.
To me canas is a bad match-up for fed so is nadal. But who's been #1 since rafa has arrived on the atptour?!? Rembember fed lost 5 straight times to rafa and still had his best year last year! Plus do you really imagine canas beating fed 5 straight times?!? No way!!!
Also remember last year when he lost monte carlo, rome and rg, he then hardly won halle but simply destroyed anyone in wimbledon. I am sure this year is going to be great again! Grand Slam anyone?!?
