Just a random thought of mine.
Federer looked old last year too. Really old at the wtf. But the lighting there is ghastly.
I thought fed fought tooth and nail tho. In his heyday he could demoralize his opponents with a couple of blazingly brilliant games and then cruise to a win. But now the good players just Ignore the brilliant streaks and keep coming. It makes watching fed more interesting because he has to scratch and claw and fight for the entire match,
