Since 2009 Wimbledon, Federer's first serve fizzles after matches with Soderling

09-11-2010, 10:54 PM
2009 Wimbledon R16 vs. Soderling 66%
QF vs. Karlovic 62%

2009 US Open QF vs. Soderling 66%
SF vs. Djokovic 57%

2010 US Open QF vs. Soderling 64% in gale force winds
SF vs. Djokovic 53%

Does Federer peak for Soderling during Slams? Is he increasingly exerting more effort to try and defeat him? Is it a lose-lose situation for these two players to meet in the same half of the draw? Discuss.

No, I think 2-day break is what's killing federer. He was awful after 2 day break at AO2009, was awful after 2-day break at USopen 2009, was awful again today.
