Nadal is winding. He himself knows he needs recovery of confidence. These days Federer's game is becoming boring lacking challenge. Federer is not motivated developing s&v game and net game. Is Nadal's shaking good for Federer or not? What about for tennis?

Nadal needs to play Federer, lol, to get his confidance back, I've got my tongue in my cheek, I would be rooting for Federer...but really, it is sad to see his confidance so low...he didn't play bad today, sometimes he played great, but with his game, no easy ponts from his serve, he needs to be great most of the time to beat a number of players...Good think I didn't bet on how many times Federe and Nadal would play since Wimby. I would have guessed several and been so wrong :)

Federer's game is not boring....it's one of the most beautiful most complete games of all time. Federer is always working on improving his serve and volley. He uses S/V in matches when he thinks it's a good idea. He doesn't just play one particular style all the time.

If you think Federer is lacking challenges then you are really paying attention. It's funny because during the clay season the media was treating Federer as if his time was almost over and he was on the way out. Now you say he has no competition? Sounds like sour grapes.

Nadal's bootie shaking is great for Federer, especially when he drops it like its hot and flips his hair like a white girl. :hearts:

(Oh Tyra Banks, you're so quotable. :sobbing: )As I read the thread title, even before I clicked on it, guess who I knew would post exactly this. You never fail to deliver. Never.

Have you guys heard the joke about the man who experienced deja vu and amnesia at time? He had a feeling he had forgotten this conversation before.

I love his game, too. He is the one who drew me in front of tennis match from 2004. But, to be honest as an enthusiastic fan of Fed., he needs serious challenge from others. Owing to lacking challenge, he does not think that he need to S/V, and net game. Watch womens' game between JHH and Mouresmo. It's full of variety: wonderful baseline game, s/v in a critical moment, aggressive net point, pressing opponent dashing into the net. It's spectecular. I am, 120%, sure that Federer can do more than this!

if federer is not being challenged most of the time surely he can afford to mix it up more, try new things and serve volley more. when he does things like that he is a very exciting player to watch. nadal is not the only person who can challenge him. other players can challenge him but not fot the duration of a whole match, maybe only a set or so.
we'll know if nadal's shaking is good or not if nadal and federer meet. playing federer usually brings out some better tennis from nadal, i mean when they played in the final in dubai nadal was just coming back from his foot injury, wasnt playing too well and then came back from a set down to beat federer.

I think this is a very legitimate question. I think the main reason why Fed has had such an incredible 2006 was because he was pushed to the limit by Nadal. With the current lack of competetion for the #1 slot, I fear that Fed's motivation weaken and he's likely to have a comparatively weak 2007. Not because the other players suddenly become much better, but because Fed is likely to lack that 110% focus that he has had in 2006 - it is this focus that has resulted in him barely ever losing a match.

Nadal needs to understand that he has to play with his head more than with his legs. Once he "gets it" he'll start doing better because he sucks lately.
It is very sad to see him like this.

Of course Roger^s game isn^t boring, it is the competition^s games that are mostly boring and mentally weak.
