Re: What does federer need to work on before AO 2012 to maximize slam chance?
I would make him work on his backhand.
And play aggressive and not shy away from being aggressive on the second serve return.
Most importantly, I would tell him to fight against all odds to freaking maintain his focus throughout an entire match and not just a set or two.
"But certain interests of particular people are so important that it would be wrong - morally wrong - for the community to sacrifice those interests just to secure an overall benefit. Political rights mark off and protect these particularly important interests. A political right, we may say, is a trump over the kind of trade-off argument that normally justifies political action." - Ronald Dworkin (RIP)
