Fed has no match-match consistency anymore, and arguably, no consistency in matches. He can crack 2-3 ridiculous FH winners to get break points, then shank 2 FHs and dump two second serve returns into the bottom of the net. '08 was bad, and '09 was worse... you can pick out the 3-5 matches of each year where he played consistently well throughout. Throughout an entire tournament? Maybe not even 1. Those trying to cling to JesusFed are hopeless. Those trying to claim the game has caught up in order to boost their own favorites are more hopeless.

Wrist injury? That must be it.

No no. Don't get me wrong. I still like Fed. But when he says he is going to dominate, I mean lets be realistic. I am not a bigger fan of Nadal or whoever else just because it's 2010. No. It's just I wished Roger moved on at the top of his game. He still believes he is the best but his game is being figured out by more people as we speak. That doesn't mean he should retire. But It just turns me off that he still thinks he is so much better than others. I hope he continues winning. But I am realistic. Is that so wrong? BTW, I hate murray!

If we look at Fed matches against big opponents since beginning 2008. It seems obvious to me that he is declining. I seriously worried right now, that the best of Fed's game is behind us and he will have avery hard time winning a Slam in 2010.

I maybe be too pessismistic but that is my viewpoint. Fed's past his peak and it will only get tougher for him from now on.

as a fed fan, that's pretty clear to me. it was good while it lasted though as he managed to build amazing records. For that reason many Fed fans say that everything Federer does from now on is a bonus. The expectations are certainly lower than they were.

still, i'm sure that with a bit of luck (if the draw opens a bit and he manages to find his game a little bit) he might win another GS. It's certainly a real possibility, imo, but now it's far from being something that you know is going to happen. We're not in 2005 anymore.

Not a good match from Federer. But Davydenko played really well and his serve was excellent today. And he also looked the more concentrated player tonight. I don't know. It bothers me that Federer looks like he doesn't care all that much. I could be wrong but it seems that he plays these tournaments because he has to. Not because he really cares about winning. But I could be wrong.

I hadn't thought of a tank to counteract Start da game's theory... namely that Nadal needs a match against Fed. Fed's really stepping up the mind games brilliantly. Even as injury and personal-life plague his on-court game, he begins to evolve again, one step ahead of the rest.

If Davy wins tomorrow, Fed is brilliant. If Davy loses, H2H still intact and Madrid loss still weighs heavy on Rafala's mind going into AO. :worship:

The Magician
01-08-2010, 03:42 PM
You guys don't understand that tennis motivation is mostly subconscious. When Fed says he tries his best, he means it because he actually tries as hard as he can. But subconsciously he can't find the energy or mental fortitude to win a 250 event. Last year he managed to channel that at all the right times, and this year will probably be similar, but don't let that stop people from crying that Fed is done and should retire.

Also if someone serves 100% first serves they are literally unbeatable at the top level of tennis. Nothing you can do there.

I'm surprised people are saying Federer is finished. Yes, his game has declined and has been sussed out by other players who have improved their own tennis, but Federer, consciously or not, has not cared too much about anything below grandslam level for some time now. Indeed, he doesn't really care much about the early rounds of slams as well, using them to tune up for their second week. I expect to see Federer well into the second week of the Australian Open.

Federer's forehand is now a shanky, soft shit shot and his backhand remains what it was the last couple of years. His game was all about perfect timing and he doesn't have it anymore.

That said, in this era of tennis his shit displays are still enough to win slams and make finals, says it all really.

Congrats Davy, too big. Fired on all cylinders in the beginning of the first set, just like at RG a couple of years ago. Fed didn't know what hit him. But this time Kolya kept his cool, well done.
It was at times a very good game, I thought, a few too many errors from Fed made the difference. I hate it when he, after he gets very close to break his opponent's serve but loses the game anyway, mails in a total disaster of a service game and gets broken. But he ain't getting any younger, so one has to accept it.

federer needs to worry about how he will qualify for the ao final and keep the top ranking, more players know the secret combination now and he's got a lot of points to defend this year ...

There is no secret combination except for Rafa's heavy top spin to Fed's forehand (which is no secret really). Most of the time Federer loses because he didn't play well. If he is mentally dialed in, then his opponent has to play lights out tennis to beat him which has happened.

Of course. and when he loses early in Australia or gets slammed by Rafa, what is he practicing for? 2012 Olympics?

Of course, he will win the AO with his goat game. :) :) :)

And, it will be practice for 2012 Olympics and Davis Cup. :)

Denko was superb and Fed was pish, as we say here. shoulda really been 6-2 6-2 if you are honest.

Fed :lol: he can hit 2 behind the back return trick shots into court (fooling around when Denko faulted) yet on a 75mph 2nd serve he cant hit it within 10 feet of the court/over the net in the same game

blame the rafatards that fed doesn't want to play the dull one.

fed lacks confidence now so it's likely he tanked it so that nadal did not have a chance to get an edge on him in front of the 1st GS of 2010. fed is strategic. but nadal likley knows that fed lacks confidence right now, which boosts his own confidence.

Well done Davy. Your head-to-head against this Fedmug should be much better but at least now you realize his mug game is not invincible.

Davy looking like the favorite for the AO at the moment.

What do you expect people? It's life: Federer is bound to have the world catch up to him at some point. Kudos to him that he pushed the tennis universe for 5+ years! To think it has taken until now for players to challenge him.

Man... what whiners... why slam a guy for losing and playing like a human rather than a robot?

That crazy... Federer would probably relish the chance to play Nadal right now since Nadal is still not fully recovered and up to where he once was.

Oh well... Aussie Open here we come. I expect a stronger Federer there... it's obvious that in the twilight of his career he is focussing on the GS's.

I haven't followed the match, but from what I have heard so far Kolya played very well and deserved the victory. Congrats to him :yeah:
He has been one of the most underestimated players in the last years and even though he never lost to Roger until last year they had some really close matches.

Fed has no match-match consistency anymore, and arguably, no consistency in matches. He can crack 2-3 ridiculous FH winners to get break points, then shank 2 FHs and dump two second serve returns into the bottom of the net. '08 was bad, and '09 was worse... you can pick out the 3-5 matches of each year where he played consistently well throughout. Throughout an entire tournament? Maybe not even 1. Those trying to cling to JesusFed are hopeless. Those trying to claim the game has caught up in order to boost their own favorites are more hopeless.

Good post and he really can't play consistently well throughout a whole tournament.

really the result was never in doubt. the thing that remains intresting is will fed be able to pick it up for the oz open. hes been able to lift his game for slams upto now, but this year theres just a sense that there are several players who can match and better it.

i hope davy keeps this form into the oz open, would be very frustrating if he bombed out erly.

hope he wins the final in doha.

I hadn't thought of a tank to counteract Start da game's theory... namely that Nadal needs a match against Fed. Fed's really stepping up the mind games brilliantly. Even as injury and personal-life plague his on-court game, he begins to evolve again, one step ahead of the rest.

If Davy wins tomorrow, Fed is brilliant. If Davy loses, H2H still intact and Madrid loss still weighs heavy on Rafala's mind going into AO. :worship:

Wow So Federer is now smart cause he loses in order not to face a better player :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Fucking hell Roger, maybe you should start looking at a few tapes of TMC 2007 on how to beat your soon-to-be-former pigeon eh? And get a goddamn coach while you're at it! And he does care about winning these smaller tourneys. He cares a lot. If you see his face after he loses a match, it's not about being a sore loser, he just absolutely hates it.

Come on Davy, save the tourney by thrashing the asspicker tmr!

Oh yes, he truly sucks. Ranked #1 in the world, lost to a player in the top 10 :sad: It's indeed time to retire immediately.
Wonder what 99% of the other players on the tour should do then...

Sometimes one really wonders if people have followed tennis at all before. It's natural to lose in sports, not being able to keep up a certain level.

Roger could have retired after he won in Wimbledon last year and broke Pete's GS record, but he still has the passion and the game, even though he can't play consistantly as he did in previous years.

You either accept the natural development Roger's career is taking now or maybe it's time then to support another player.


I don't want to see him slapped around by the likes of Davy :eek:

Why it is a shame when Roger loses to a player like Davydenko? Kolya has the ability to trouble each player. He had close matches to Roger in the past, where he sometimes didn't used his chances.
