Losing streaks vs Federer

Fed=ATPTourkilla
06-13-2010, 04:24 PM
Davydenko
Soderling
Hewitt

Streaks all broken.

Federer is really starting to suck now. The first signs were there in 2007. Worse, the fire seems to have gone. He doesn't seem to give a shit about losing to guys who couldn't touch him at his peak.

Well, not so much the streaks are going, just that Fed outside slams ...... the masters results have been gone for 3 years now, then WTF, then Basel, then the slam sf streak.

Inevitable Hewitt/Davy and co would beat him eventually when he's losing to everybody in best-of-3.

Add Del Potro and Baggy to the mix as well.

Nothing lasts forever. Moreover, Federer's obituary has been written twice in the last couple of years, and both times it was premature, so I'm not ready to leap off the cliff just yet. Those players you mention are too good not to get another win over Federer eventually, if Benneteau and Montanes are also capable of doing it.

The thing is that Hewitt and Davy are about Federes age, so we can not really explain Fed's decline relatively to them by age (as they aged along lol). Therefore I do not think feds problem is only age, he is in a slump also.

Some players decline earlier than others. Edberg was practically in the OAP home at 28.

It must be Robredo's turn next or Ferrer.

Yeah but I believe Federer has still one excellent strecht of play in him. he just needs to fire it up and not fall into nostalgia-mode.

I'm really hoping for a Roddick-Federer QF...that's if Fed can make it that far.

I'm sure Roddick will feel he's next in line to break the streak of Fed losses. Good mentality is all it takes these days.

Possibly, but age doesn't affect everyone equally. Not just in terms of physical decline, but the adaptation to slightly slower reactions and footwork - some change their game, some just stubbornly play the same way.

Berdych broke a 8 match losing streak to Federer in Miami.

Had this loser Roddick lived without a crippled mind, the old rabid cult trolls wouldn't cry like Federer did.

Man! Cry me a river little baby. I bet he's so sorry he's offended you and put you on a rant. Geez people... tennis greats rise and fall... welcome to the twilight of a great tennis player's career. He has nothing more to prove to anyone on this planet. He can play for his happiness now.

Mjau!

He's still great at the slams (let's not forget that he won 3 of the last 5), which makes Robin's performance all the more impressive.

So long as Fedex still gives a f**k about slams and beats everybody there, who cares? At least he's got the courtesy of leaving the "minor" tourneys to lesser players.

EXACTLY! well said. Everyone is overeacting.

Sure Fed's best days are behind him but considering that Pete won two more slams at roger's age ( one at 28 and one at 31) I find it hard to believe that Fed won't win at least two more slams.

Federer is stronger now then Pete was at his age.

pete's mental toughness was something else........i said this million times and i will do it again........he would never have been so consistent with the style of game he adopted, yet he was damn consistent given his SNV style.......

it's not for no reason that pete had a terrific 5 set record whereas fed usually wins only when the path is easy.......whenever someone stood up and just refused to let up, most often fed lost.......

be it the safin show in 2005 AO, nalby show in the same year, the spartan show in 2006 rome, 2008 wimbledon final, 2009 australian final, 2009 us open final.......

no matter how many slams he won, when he was confronted by someone with the eagerness to fight and prevail, he lost most of the times........

Fed is still +10 vs. Ferrer, and +11 over the great Niemenen.

We will see come Canada if those streaks still hold up.

I think Ferrer will definitely beat Federer sooner or later. I don't think Nieminem will, though.

What's wrong is a bunch of clown opponents turning Federer into a media-overrated, and more smug ass.

Meanwhile this year, Federer has already won a slam (something most ATP tour players never even get a chance to do), had a hell of a nice RG (imo he was the third best player by quality of play) and will probably waltz through into yet another Wimbledon final as per usual.

Decline is relative folks. I think most players would give their eyetooth to peak at that level.

Nadull is a spartan really zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz wake me up when he wins a tourny off-clay. Spartan is some-one that wins when the odds are against you,by that definition nadull is NO SPARTAN.;)

Djokovic has met the top 8 as much as Nadal
he wins twice as often

I think Fed will be fine at Wimbledon,he always seems to switch it to a higher gear there.Obviously he has declined but he's still tough to beat in a best of five slam match,especially on grass.I still expect him to reach the final or SF atleast.
