Federer: looked agitated, irritated, nervous, shaky, uncertain. Actually, the way he looked like 4 years ago. I'm really not sure what makes him so nervous. But I have a theory: normal, usual wins don't satisfy him any more. He can't rejoice in this win, for example, because it's 'only' a 2nd round AMS win. Probably his mind is full of RG and stuff like that, he'd like a chance to fight for that right away, without being 'forced' to grind his way up there just to have a chance to begin with. His apetites are too big, so he is always unhappy (except if he finally manages to do that, since it would probably have a great relaxing effect on him).

Compare this to Rafa, who visibly enjoys each of his wins no matter what round it is.

In this match, it looked like this: he would do an amazing rally, with great finishing touch - and then he would lose 2 straight points by making abysmal UEs. In the 3rd set I actually expected him to lose, not to win. And just like him, I'm not very happy that he eventually won, because I know he will not take any positives from it in his next match - but will probably be nervous just like today.

scoobs
05-16-2007, 01:14 PM
He did struggle today - but at least he seemed to have some fire in his belly again and tried to change losing patterns and eke out the win.

Still, it does leave a potentially dangerous encounter with Ferrero or Safin - if he doesn't pick his level up for the next round there are two players who could take advantage.

I am starting to worry about fed now. His footwork is still not there. I suspect that, after 3 great years, he's finally exhausted inside. ( Physically he's fine. But the desire to go on court and win a match is just not there. ) Although he says he's very motivated, but deep down he wants a long break...

And those early exits seem to take a lot of confidence out of him. Hope he gets better for french open.

Yes, I did see the entire match, and what I saw... wasn't in any way good from Fed, to say the least. So, first: KUDOs to Monaco for putting up a good match, especially that second set! :hatoff:

But Rogelio... what is up with you? :(
TONS of UEs again, forehand MIA, serve - OFF.

Seemed nervous during the first set, competely ABSENT during the second. Fortunately he was able to step up in the third.
Hope that this match at least gave him a proper round of practice.

I don't see him winning a clay court title this year, no way, unless some miracle happens.
Anyway, a win = a win.

Moving is the least of his problems. It's all that nervousness while executing a shot. He doesn't have confidence to execute a shot even from an easy situation, let alone in the run or something like that. While he used to hit those with great precision as well, just remember all those counter-strike winners he made against Roddick in AO.

He just wasn't passionate at all today. It was almost as he didn't really care.

Even after he won he didn't look all that happy - well he should - because he managed to beat an opponent who was playing more-than-decent.

Right now he's closely in parallel with Borg's trajectory. Practically same age (Fed's going 26, right?) and only Borg got to pile the grand slam titles faster. Is the fire burning out? I wouldn't want to think so.

Confidence is the key, moving can be straightened with good workout, training and preparation. We already know he IS capable of moving like a cat, he's not old enough to lose it for any natural reason. But confidence can't be 'practiced' - you just have to find it inside, somehow. Or else.

Great many of his UEs today weren't due to his footwork. He missed a lot of shots being completely still, i.e. positions from which you'd expect him to slay the ball with great authority.

rofe
05-16-2007, 01:31 PM
He played better than his last match and actually showed some fighting spirit during big points. He was also changing things up by coming into the net.

He obviously lacks match practice. Monaco was actually playing well so the only thing I would have liked was to see some joy in Fed's face after the win.

G4.
05-16-2007, 01:32 PM
bad footwork will make you miss hit and put balls in the net , so yes they were due to his lazy footwork today . he looked slower than Karlovic at times

Or Levy
05-16-2007, 01:53 PM
So Roger played badly but still won? Sounds like a normal early round match for Roger at an AMS to me. ;)

If only it was that simple. I know he had some awful first round matches in the past, but you just can't ignore the last few months. I rather he'll get Safin in the next round, I think Safin would motivate him to get his best form. The problem is - Roger could motivate Safin to do the same.

And that's not true. I've said many nice things about Roger. However, if you choose to only see some of my posts, then you can't really accuse me of being biased.

I will root for Nadal much more, yes this is true. I will even often claim that Nadal will win in matches that he in not favored, because I often truly believe he can out grind, our out fight some of the opposition. However I will not talk crap for the sake of talking it.

All I said were my observations. It's clear Roger is in a slump at the moment.

That was a bit close for comfort but those who are only criticizing Federer's game without taking his opponent into account are doing Monaco a big disservice. He is a very solid claycourter and he was keeping the ball consistently deep, moving Fed around by dragging him out wide to his backhand and then hitting into the open forehand corner. Give credit where credit is due folks.

I guess it depends on the definition you give to the word "emotional". If it means to you that Roger would have had to jump all around the court, fist pumping all the way and shout vamosses, then yes, he lacked emotion indeed... :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Why do you have to take things to extremes? It dosen't have to be either walking around the court with your head faced down, or celebrating most good points like Nadal does.

There are many, many, many times in which Roger has out fought the opposition and has shown clear emotion, in doing so. Mind you, he will not jump around and pump his fist, that's not his style. However, you will see him noticeably happier.

Just off the top of my head, Federer beating Nalbandian both in Rome (last year) and in Roland Garros. He wasn't at his best, but he was clearly more passionate that he was today.

All I'm pointing at is that Federer may in fact be losing a bit of hope on clay.

Now, if you consider that to be bashing then, fine. That would be your problem, not mine.

Not at all. Federer is a hypersensitive guy - he just doesn't show it on the outside, since he is introvert. You need something called 'empathy' to be able to read introvert people's emotions. It seems you aren't good at that if you really believe Federer doesn't have emotions or doesn't care. It's just his mask, his shield.

So, while you are perfectly correct in that he didn't SHOW any emotions - you are dead wrong if you believe it means he HAD none, inside.

Well that was pretty obvious. So what was the point of stating it? He just doesn't show emotions, that's the way he is - the only time when he does show them is when he can't contain them, OR when he believes noone will mind. For example, when you win a GS hardly anyone can blame you for celebrating madly. :devil:

Other times, if he can control them anyhow - he will not show emotions. That's one of the reasons why I root for him, actually.

I'll try to keep it positive and say he did well to save those BPs in the 3rd set, and grinded it out, eventually finding some rhythm in the end. Monaco was consistent throughout but experience pays off, even if it was a not-so-confident Federer. I hope to see a better performance tomorrow....

Don't count on it. With MTF, impossible is nothing. ;)

Federer: looked agitated, irritated, nervous, shaky, uncertain. Actually, the way he looked like 4 years ago. I'm really not sure what makes him so nervous. But I have a theory: normal, usual wins don't satisfy him any more. He can't rejoice in this win, for example, because it's 'only' a 2nd round AMS win. Probably his mind is full of RG and stuff like that, he'd like a chance to fight for that right away, without being 'forced' to grind his way up there just to have a chance to begin with. His apetites are too big, so he is always unhappy (except if he finally manages to do that, since it would probably have a great relaxing effect on him).

Compare this to Rafa, who visibly enjoys each of his wins no matter what round it is.

In this match, it looked like this: he would do an amazing rally, with great finishing touch - and then he would lose 2 straight points by making abysmal UEs. In the 3rd set I actually expected him to lose, not to win. And just like him, I'm not very happy that he eventually won, because I know he will not take any positives from it in his next match - but will probably be nervous just like today.

MASTER CLASS: SUICIDE TENNIS

A master of tennis, I already am
But this new technic, I'd like to Slam
The process involves creating a quandary
And losing shamelessly to a certain Volandri

The process improves when you hit a staccatto
And win horridly against a certain Monaco
The idea is to make your opponent a winner
And R.I.P. as his scrumptious dinner

So, if you think your game's a menace,
Please join my club of suicide tennis!

But, eh... please show a little respect for dearest Rogelio, no?
He's going through a real hard time in his carreer now. :angel:

Don't worry, this is seasonal. By the time grass season begins, I feel a lot of Fed'tards' are going to get poetic in MTF.

Yes, I have a few very 'poetic' recipes up my sleeve waiting to be put into good use :devil:

I'll try my best when time's there. Unfortunately I'm not as good in poetry as you seem to be! :yeah:

What happens in these matches is: everybody is suffering hell when Roger plays. Fedtards, because they fear him to lose. Rafatards and Fedhaters, because they fear him to win. The only guy who seems not to be suffering is Fed himself. I would say: as he suffers less than anybody, everybody think he is not suffering at all. . . . .:eek: :eek: :eek:
