I think the key is to watch the Canas matches in IW/Miami. Fed doesn't like pushers who take him out of his rythym and force him to play lots of 20-shot rallies. He starts to get inpatient and makes lots of UFEs. However, he did show up out of shape and a bit slow for those matches. I suspect that the formula is to play insane defensive tennis, have some qualities groundies and hope Fed shows up out of shape.
