Re: What does federer need to work on before AO 2012 to maximize slam chance?
Not too much, he is kind of dominating right now. Working on his backhand could help since the courts will be significantly slower and higher bouncing. But if the top 4 players remain as weak as they are at the moment, there is no reason Federer should not win the AO next year. It is crazy but it will soon be 2012 and Federer won't have too many threats (if Novak's level remains where it is now).
