Re: Federer, less weight of shot?
Federer's strenght is in place. He's in his prime. His skill is still amazing. Unfortunately his problems are more mental, which means all his shots are less reliable. Serve, FH, volley...
Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open
, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series
, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)
The inhabitants of the Balearic Islands are said to have been the inventors of slings, and to have managed them with surprising dexterity, owing to the manner of bringing up their children. The children were not allowed to have their food by their mothers till they had first struck it with their sling.
~Vegetius, De Re Militari, late 4th century
Nadal: the last Balearic Slinger, the ultimate product of natural selection. Feel the weight of the centuries in the Topspin from Hell!
