Question: Is Canas still in Fed's head?

I think Canas owns his puny Swiss arse and the arrogant Swiss knows it. Canas is simply holding back the rest of the year, to give FedBoy time to brood on those 2 devastating losses which limited him to current 2200 point lead in #1 ranking. :p

by the way Fed is a Winner of 12 of 34 Grand Slams, you cant just not count the first 16

Fed is such a shmo for not winning a single GS in his first 16 attempts. BTW, I calculated that if Fed win the CYGS, his slam win% goes to 42%, which would exceed Borg's 11/27(40.7)

Well, having a winning record over someone does mean that you own them if that's the way you want to look at it. Aside from that, Guillermo is absolutely physically and mentally drained at this point, so I don't expect his results to be at his usual level.

I think not being a fan it would be easy to overlook all underlying reasons and simply label him an average player. I'm glad that I'm a fan :)

What is the point of this thread? Can we have a "FedFan_2007 Wants To Talk About His Hero, But For Reasons Unknown The Fed Express Forum Cannot Satisfy His Lust For Fed Discussion Thread"? He could type away to his heart's content.

I don't think so. And I'm quite sure Federer would not get beaten again by Cañas if they were to play against each other now.

Good question. It would probably make sense to start a thread like this when a match between them would be awaiting, but that's not the case.

Anyway, Roger mentioned before the start of the Montreal tournament his disappointing performances in Miami and Indian Wells against Canas

I guess he was more disappointed with his game then to lose to Canas twice in a row. And why should he agonize about his defeats to him now when he has won 3 of the 4 GS tournaments?

Canas personally - no. But I think Roger might be slightly worried over the fact that more and more players will be able to "pull a Canas" on him. Those matches showed that there IS a strategy against fastcourt Federer, that there ARE weaknesses (however slight) which can be exploited with enough patience, competence, mental strength and a touch of luck at the crucial moments. Moreover, they showed it's not necessary to "over-Federer the Federer" in order to beat him.

I don't think the losses to Canas and Djokovic on hardcourt in a best of 3 match will really worry Roger. He had tough matches like these last year as well. Paradorn forced him to play 3 sets in Basel, Roddick even had matchpoint in Shanghai. Roger knows that such matches can go either way.

It's the GS tournaments which means the most and right now I don't see anyone "pull a Canas" there and take 3 sets off him.

Federer is only worried if people beat him in a best-of-five. There are not many who can do that.

Those who can develop their fitness in order to be fresh enough in the later stages of a slam, and those who can keep their focus for 4 hours instead of 2 (in athletics terms: who can run 1,500 meters sufficiently good and not only 200 meters brilliantly), provided they have good playing technique, should have all the tools necessary to prevail (not saying they WILL prevail, since imponderables enter the picture too).

Fitness is something one can definitely work on, and bring to a very high level. Power of concentration - some innate ability should be present, but that can also be improved.

Care to enlighten me, how you know what Federer truly feels?

Any pro who can be tough and doesn't lose his balls can beat Fed.

Canas is a tough SOB as he has proven twice.

I'm sure he'll find lots of comfort in the three GS trophies he won this year.

Fed was kicking his ass before he got married. Actually, Hewitt's been closer to beating Fed again after marriage.

RFK you keep saying that it takes ultimate balls to beat Fed. Isn't that a backhanded compliment to Fed's greatness? Don't you admit he's really great?

True greatness isn't understood in its time.

That explains the opinions of the idiots above me.

Out of curiosity why does everyone think that clown FedFan2007 has anything to do with me. I wouldn't want to create such a mess.

off course not. He already won three GS titles this year. spo he forgotten it. But he definetly owes davydenko for taking canas out at French open. Otherwise 5the h2h might have been 4-1 in favor of canas.

That said beating federer twice same year is a terrific achievement. I beleive nadal and canas were the only players(since 2003) to beat him twice same year.

you need to have a strong serve.(karlovic's serve or isner's serve.) plus groundtrokes of nadal or canas or nalbandian in order to beat federer frequently. :lol:
i believe that day will come one day.
