He won't he just didn't look good since AO and with more players who are able to take him down(Nadal, Canas, Almagro can play well on clay) I would be suprised if he makes it his best shot is Rome. If he won't get any confidence booster before RG as last year wehn he was clearly second best on clay his chances of winning RG are slim

Federer ready to prove he can win on clay

Reuters

BASEL, Switzerland -- Roger Federer warned his rivals that he is fully fired-up for the start of the clay-court season despite his recent shocking defeats to Guillermo Canas. "I think if I lost to two different players I would think I wasn't playing well, but with one guy I can think 'OK, this guy is on a roll'. It's just easier to digest." -- Roger Federer on his losses to Guillermo Canas

The usually flawless Federer suffered two unexpected losses to Canas, currently ranked 29th in the world, at the Masters Series hard-court events in Indian Wells and Key Biscayne but insisted on Tuesday that he was ready to bounce back on clay. "They were tough matches for me and Miami hurt in particular because losing 7-6 in the third set is never fun," Federer told a news conference in his home city of Basel.

"But I would honestly rather lose to the same guy twice than lose to two different guys. "I think if I lost to two different players I would think I wasn't playing well, but with one guy I can think 'OK, this guy is on a roll'. It's just easier to digest."

Federer, a 10-time Grand Slam winner, was in Basel to unveil a postage stamp commissioned in his honor by the Swiss Post. He is due to fly to Monaco on Wednesday for next week's clay-court Master Series tournament in Monte Carlo.

Federer has not played a match since his second defeat to Canas on March 27 and he is hoping his rare slump could even prove a blessing in the long-term -- by giving him more time to prepare for his tough summer schedule.
"That's the only advantage I can see, because it has definitely taken away my confidence a little bit, but it has also given me more time and maybe that is just as good a thing. "It's exactly what I didn't have for the last two or three years, one of those surprise losses where all of a sudden I got more time off so I hope it can help me out."

Federer said he had spent time since the second defeat building up his fitness levels with conditioning coach Pierre Paganini and would use Monte Carlo to test the level of his clay-court play.

"There were a few seasons when I skipped Monaco to give myself more of a break but I have stopped doing that because the tournament gives you a good idea of how you are playing and what stuff you still have to work on at the practice courts. "It's similar to the French Open in the way it plays and even if you lose in the first round it helps give an indication of how the other guys are playing and reminds you how clay is supposed to be played."

Despite playing mainly on clay as a youngster, Federer has rarely managed to play at his formidable best on the surface. As a result, he is still chasing his first French Open title -- the only Grand Slam tournament still to elude him. :devil: "Last year I couldn't win a single clay-court tournament, so I want to do that this year, and the French Open is obviously huge for me as the one Slam I haven't yet won," Federer said. "If I can win it this year it would also mean I could still win all four Slams in a row. Then the following month I will be trying to equal Bjorn Borg's record [of five successive Wimbledon titles], so it's going to be a very interesting summer for me.

"Hopefully the time off after Miami should be an important part of making sure I'm absolutely ready for the next tough 12 weeks."

I think he'll be more ready than at IW and Miami! On ESPN they chatted with the Fed's camp before Miami and they said that Fed was thinking too much about the clay season and RG, so I guess he's even more ready than last year. But we'll see, and what the hell is it with Canas beating Fed? he didn't Fed beat himself, I thought it was pretty clear on the second match that Canas doesn't have the game to beat Fed, but Fed can beats himself from times to times! Canas only played every point, which in this case was the right thing to do, but it won't be enough every time!

just because he failed to beat canas doesnt mean he can never win again. as i said he will be more motivated now that he has failed to defend two of his titles and he wants to prove he can win big titles on clay. he will have put more preparation in on the practice court than any other player in the draw and will be raring to go. you can't write the greatest player of all time off, just because of 2 losses and if you do then you are a fool

Greatest tennis player of all time maybe is other player no? I donīt know who but maybe not Federer and also i think these days it is more about form than about how many titles a guy won before and Federers form is everything but good at the moment or would you say loosing in the opening round against medicore player is good? twice?
I think i am not a fool and you will see when tournament starts he will be out in opening rounds. Maybe second round I donīt know.

i seriously doubt he will lose in the second round. he is not just some average player. he has the tools to beat anyone. and i would hardly call canas mediocore, he is a former top 10 player and after beating fed he got to the final in miami

Fitness training. No need for the stress as the TMS finals are now best of 3. He should work more matching up to Rafa's pumped up attitude on court and if possible not let the "VAMOSes and FIST PUMPS" get to him :devil:

Great to see he is so determined to win the GOAT title but how on Earth do you prepare yourself physically to play Backhands above shoulder level for as long as the match lasts? Nadal is going to bomb that backhand for as long as it takes and we always end up with mediocre matches where the World Number One coughs up 70+ UEs.

Besides on the Dirt more guys are capable of upseting him compared to any other surface so he should concetrate more on what interests him.

t0x
04-10-2007, 10:01 PM
Hrmm realistically only players with low UE counts trouble him in early rounds... QF and from then on, he won't give people like Canas or Murray the errors they need to beat him.

Nadal is a different matter... he hits with so much topspin and really kills Fed's backhand. However with best of 3 finals in TMS, I wouldn't be surprised if Federer did actually beat him. But can he in RG? hrmmm.

I think the Fed v Nadal rivalry will get fully started for this year in MC :)

It's still hard to get more than 3-4 X's, but I think now that Nadal has a shot of playing Federer during the clay season, more threads will be started with this subject, leading to a lot of X's in the first spots. ;)

To have all X's, it would have to be started by Just Cause, have a lot of grammar mistakes, should talk about Federer-Nadal, suppose Federer will be the #1 forever, then bitch claycourters are sucking in fast surfaces, discuss chances of a clayclown against Nadal, then talk about doubles, talk the old stuff about Canas being a doper.

Well Federer's chances are slimmer in comparison to last year.

With Canas beating him twice in a row on hardcourts, a lot of the fake mystique should be wearing off.

Players will now go on the court trying to defeat him and not just worshiping "JesusFed"

This a key realization players should obtain, there is nothing to fear but fear itself.

Federer can't handle long rallies and is known to self destruct as shown in his matches against Canas.

This will probably be his last year on top as Djokovic and Murray are improving. Those two and Nadal have no fear of an old man.

When Fed's backhand is on, he has one of the best backhands ever. The problem is consistency. When his backhand is off, even I have a better backhand. At least I put the ball in play... :tape:

Obviously Loremaster is talking about Roddick being the one with no weapons to beat Nadal not even on a hard court :lol:

Federer can beat anyone on any surface, but on clay he obviously has to play his best tennis to beat Nadal.

Anywhere close to win? So you have to have match points to make a match being close?
And after all Federer has taken at least a set on each of their matches on clay, that´s enough to say that Federer must be doing something right to make it competitive against Nadal.

04-11-2007, 12:03 PM
2 MPs.. both were gifted back by the Fed forehand. Not many people escape that.

I think RG final was a big let down though... he blew Rafa away in set 1, then got broke, then he sort of lost all his confidence from just the one break and played passive. So in the end he was playing Rafa's own game (which naturally he wont be as good at). However he's won the last 2 meetings, I'm hoping this will up his confidence a bit when they meet on clay...

It's all about Fed's backhand... if it's on, he's unstoppable and truly magnificent to watch (Black TMC and Roddick AO matches come to mind). But with Nadal's heavy topspin, he can't seem to find top gear and we end up seeing about 80+ errors....

Winner of Hamburg, SF Roland Garros, Runner-up Monte Carlo, Runner-up Roma, Runner-up Roland Garros. Those are his last five clay tournaments played. Nadal has just been better than him on clay, but he has had a very easy time beating everyone else during this stretch, other than three or four relatively tough matches.

So in the end he was playing Rafa's own game (which naturally he wont be as good at).

Yep, he's as stubborn as a mule. I don't understand why he doesn't just run around the forehand. On clay you have enough time, and with such high balls he should be able to hit it flat & hard, thus converting weakness into strength. But of course, I'm not saying it's something easy :devil: - it just looks like that from this side of the screen, LOL

A player needs heart to win on clay.

Sorry guys/girls Federer's ballet tennis won't cut it.

We will see soon enough. I would consider Nadal to be the favourite but Federer does have his chances if his game is working.

Just one question though. Why does clay require more heart than other surfaces? And don't say that it's because the points are longer and it's physically demanding. A tough match is a tough match on every surface. And I think Federer has shown that he has enough will to win.

What's wrong with Federer's back? Are you saying that Mirka is the problem here? I think we've heard that before,you are repeating yourself. This talk about Mirka is just pure bullshit. I bet you are jealous because Mirka is not your girlfriend! Yeah baby!

Seriously, it would be nice if you could focus on the subject and not drag Federer's personal life into the conversation. It almost seems like you have something personal against Mirka.

Sorry, I'm not so ugly to prefer Mirka.
You don't know that the sistem behind the player make champions ?
Pls. read "I've got your back" by Brad Gilbert and you'll see deeper.

My friend, who is semi-pro, thinks Fed can beat Nadal if he practices slicing hooking, high kicking forehands softly down the line to the hooker's backhand.

Discussion? Does anyone "have" this shot themselves? Is it easy? I wouldn't know because I've never played a _crazy good_ hook-liner on a highbouncing surface.

I already read that book as well as Winning Ugly. That still doesn't explain your constant references to Mirka specifically any time you post about Roger.

Yep. Roger is LANGUISHING with Mirka by his side. Why he's actually lost TWO matches in 6 months. That loser. :yeah:

This would mean turning on his backhand and attack with the forehand onto Nadal's Backhand which handles pretty well pace and is a great shot for countering.

That would be hard to do most of the time seeing that Nadal plays kicked balls to Roger's backhand. Roger would have to turn and hit his backhand being at least 5m out off the court and that is if he manages to outrun the kicked shot and turn on his backhand to hit said forehand of wonders.

Then how are you still posting in this thread?
ACC= Arse Clown Competition. It's a tournament for hilarious, retarded, stupid and nonsense posters. The one who has all of that criteria is the one likely to get most votes. Most votes = Winning.

I hear that with this thread you are highly rated for the tournament. :);)
Someone has to give MTW a run for her money, eh?
