he played like this against roddick at cincy a couple of years ago.
its family and jelena combined. and the work suffers, he is a step slower than he used to be. federer is good enough to expose it clearly, even if one disregards the first set mental walkabout.
What exactly is happening with family and Jelena? What I am reading about family is something to do with business. Are there any differences with Jelena? I guess she was there with him in the olympics.
He lost focus and his work is clearly suffering but that's expected after the great year he had. He is the
who has to figure out what's important.
In my opinion distraction is clearly an excuse to console ourselves. They are pros and have to deal with it. Federer played better in the second set and was a better player in the wimbledon. He exposed Novak's weak foot work on the grass. Fed was also the better player in the last US OPEN. It was pure luck Novak got out of the trouble and I am more than glad for it.
