Re: Reaching for #8 - Wimbledon 2016

What a match! The good news is that Roger looked better in sets 4 and 5 versus the first 3 sets. And this match should give me a lot of confidence.The bad news is that his topspin backhand is leaking...

Re: Reaching for #8 - Wimbledon 2016

Federer needs to slice and come in more and try to finish the point with his forehand. Don't know if it will help but he HAS to change tactics. His TS backhand is pretty bad right now.

Re: Reaching for #8 - Wimbledon 2016

Looking forward to the match tomorrow. It is going to be nerve wracking.

Re: Reaching for #8 - Wimbledon 2016

Roger seemed more confident at the end of the third set. Hope he takes that confidence into his next match. Overall good start considering his injury troubles and lack of match play.

Re: Reaching for #8 - Wimbledon 2016

Very tentative play especially on break points. I guess that is to be expected.

Hope that doesn't frustrate him much.

Re: Australian Open 2014- King Roger, Sweet Revenge on Murray 6-3 6-4 6-7 6-3, Nadal

Fed defended his SF points so that is a good start to the season.

He was playing pretty intelligently against Murray. He had always had variety in his game but he was able to successfully apply it...

Re: Australian Open 2014- King Roger Topples Gabashvili 6-2 6-2 6-3, Tsonga next

Roger is looping his forehands and that does not bode well for his match against Tsonga. He also had a lot of trouble against Gaba's cc forehand. That is ok in the long run because it is clear that...

Re: Australian Open 2014- King Roger vs James Duckworth Round 1

That is HOT!. Roger should request the roof even if he is denied.

I think his BP conversion has always been poor but last year he faltered in protecting his own serve. I think, he should start...

Re: The Luthi and Federer's Coach discussion thread

I hope Edberg inspires Fed as well. It is an interesting partnership for sure. Not sure how much he can influence Roger's game but I think Roger will benefit mentally from Edberg.

Re: THE WORLD TOUR FINALS - 1-1. Saturday vs Del Potro

Called it! ;)

I am pretty happy that he was able to make SF and I am cautiously optimistic for his 2014 season. He will most likely lose to Nadal but I hope he makes it competitive.

Re: THE WORLD TOUR FINALS - Loss vs Djokovic. Thursday vs Gasquet.

Bah. Poor match from Rog. I thought he would do better against Gasquet after the Djokovic match. Seems like he thought so as well since he was repeatedly berating himself in the 2nd.

Anyway, I'll...

Re: THE WORLD TOUR FINALS - Tuesday evening sesssion vs Djokovic!

Possible scenario is that he loses to Novak, wins against Delpo and Gasquet. Then he loses to Nadal assuming Nadal becomes #1 in his group. I'll be happy if he gets to the SF.

Re: Return to Basel! Roger played well and fought valiantly, but lost the final to De

Nice report Doris. Glad you enjoyed the tournament.

Roger showed some encouraging signs but he there is no question that he badly needed that win.

I enjoyed his movement and saw glimpses of the...

Re: The Annacone and Luthi discussion thread

Roger may have decided that Luthi as more of a friend (and part time coach) may be enough. I would be curious to see if this change brings about any perceptible changes to his game.

I would love...

Re: The Shanghai tournament 2013

It is not just the better chance of winning in these smaller tournaments. Right now, for example, his transition game is non-existent. His strategy is non-existent. His plan B is non-existent. He can...

Re: The Shanghai tournament 2013

He is unable to consistently put pressure on his opponent's serve games. I wonder when he will realize that he needs to stand further back and get the ball in play.

Anyway, the best thing for him...

Re: The Shanghai tournament 2013

Good to watch Fed play. Thanks Eden.

My eyes may be playing tricks on me but he seems to be using a bigger frame.

Re: Suggestions on improving Fed's game (2013 edition)

I don't have stats to back me up but serve returns have been missing or weak. This is more so with respect to second serves. Taking time away from the opponent is great but you have to at least get...

Re: Suggestions on improving Fed's game (2013 edition)

Slice is a must for Fed. It is his go to BH defence shot (and sometimes offensive shot).

I am not sure why lately it seems to be sitting up more. Maybe it is because he is not bending down as much...

Re: Suggestions on improving Fed's game (2013 edition)

Two words - conversion nervousness. He has always had it.

I think it is more apparent nowadays because Fed can now be broken relatively easily. He used to be a monster in protecting his own serve...

Re: Suggestions on improving Fed's game (2013 edition)

I remember him saying that he would like to test the new racket. I hope he follows through and makes the decision by year end.
