Re: Wimbledon R3: Fed beats Nalbandian 6-4 6-2 6-4

I think Federer played a solid match and could pace himself at times. If required, he could probably have gone up at least another gear. If Federer continues to serve well, he has a very good chance...

Re: 2011 Roland Garros Livescoring / Commentary Thread

Federer bottled the first set, Nadal smelled weakness and has moved in for the kill. When Federer wasted those break points and lost a service game for the first time, it was obvious that Nadal was...

Re: AO R1: Federer def. Lacko 6-1, 6-1, 6-3

Federer was definitely in impressive form. His movement was fluid and he was rifling forehands and backhands down the line - all indicators that Federer's game is where it needs to be to win grand...

Re: Most impressive/difficult slam "double" in modern era?

Roland Garros and Wimbledon. The surfaces are very different and there is little time to adjust between the two.

Re: Is it time for Roddick to sack Larry Stefanki?

Did Roddick not have a mild case of glandular fever? If so, Roddick's form mightn't pick up for a while yet. I think, also, Roddick is getting on in years now, so it's not a surprise his abilities...

Re: WTF: Is Age Catching Up with Nadal or when will it

A problem Nadal is facing or will be the condition of his body and how he is going to deal with. In a nutshell, the things that make Nadal such a great player - his stomping footwork, rally reverse...

Re: Will Federer finally be able to beat Nadal at Roland Garros next year

Federer is a special player, so it would not surprise me to see him do a lot of things. However, the odds are heavily against him defeating Nadal at Roland Garros. Even in yesterday's match,...

Re: Roger Federer defeats Andy Murray 6-4, 6-2

Federer knows how to handle big matches and played quite well, using decent tactics against Murray and keeping his own game solid. Despite that, I'm still not certain he can win the tournament. A...

Re: Which Slam will Federer win next?

As has been said, Federer has a realistic chance of winning the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. If Nadal makes an early exit from the Roland Garros, Federer could be in with a chance...

Re: Was Federer ever that great?

This is the most ridiculous thread I've ever come across. Yes, Federer was that good in his prime years (2004 to 2006) and intermittently that good when he was just before and just past his prime...

Re: Shanghai F: Murray d. Federer 6-3 6-2

Murray played well and deserved to win. His first serve percentage was high, so he was not letting Federer into too many rallies. For most of the match, Murray kept his number of unforced errors...

Re: Name your 3 favorite crowds on tour

The Aussies have great fans. They are enthusiastic, but also respectful. The atmosphere at Shanghai is warm; you could almost say they feel privileged to have tennis in their city. I don't know about...

Re: Describe your best moment on a tennis court..

I recall coming back from 4-1 down in the final set to win a match. I could barely serve to save myself, so was just trying to hang in most of the afternoon. Thankfully, my temperament has improved a...

Re: Shanghai R2: Roger Federer def. John Isner 6-3, 6-4

Federer's mindset is a good point. A couple of times after he's lost having had match points, he said something about not taking any risks because one can't guarantee one will get another match...

Re: Shanghai R2: Roger Federer def. John Isner 6-3, 6-4

I always thought and we were led to believe that Federer's conditioning was pretty good. If there are some things that can be improved, it goes without saying that this can only help him. Personally,...

Re: Shanghai R2: Roger Federer def. John Isner 6-3, 6-4

I think it's true to say that Federer was both assisted by Isner playing a lot of balls down the centre etc. and that his movement was exceptionally good. However, the quality of Federer's footwork...

Re: What is your favorite shot?

My inside-out forehand is my signature shot. I also have a deadly backhand drop shot. Ironically, I developed it purely by accident when I was learning the backhand slice.

Re: Poll: Could 2010 US OPEN Nadal ever have beaten 2004-2008 US OPEN Federer?

In a word, no. Federer would have wiped the floor clean with Nadal had they met at the US Open in his peak years. If Nadal had been good enough on hardcourts to face Federer during his best years,...

Re: Who is the most tactically smart player on tour?

I agree that Federer is not the smartest tactical player on tour. Federer does possess good tactical knowledge and has the variety in his game to implement most things, but at least until Annacone...

Re: Injured and trying to come back.

I can get quite bad elbow problems and changed to the Wilson Six One Team because of this. The frame is lighter and less stiff, though the tighter string pattern means you don't really feel how...

Re: Sampras says Nadal can break "the record"

A lot of the arguments Federer and Nadal fans against one another gained popularity in the days of Agassi and Sampras. Sampras fans would quote 14 grand slams, but Agassi's fans would mention the...

Re: Sampras says Nadal can break "the record"

Age is just a number. It's the condition of your body that counts, and this is determined partly by what style of tennis a player chooses or is taught. Sampras was clearly over the hill at around 28...

Re: Ferrer, Soderling and Berdych all agree: "Federer is still the best player"

Rod Laver's career exemplifies why statistics have to be taken with a pinch of salt. Laver has eleven grand slams, but we should all know he would have won a lot more. If professionals were allowed...
