Federer is a natural tennis player.

because that , my friend said that he is not see credits to his losts against nole and murray , because he belives that if federer really training hard , he can dominate them.

the guy is tennis professor , and said that always roger doesn`t like the training and sacrifice , and that it`s one of the pricipals reasons for lost against guys like nadal , murray or nole even pushers like simon too.

that this players demands more sacrifice and federer doesn`t like that.

anyway I don`t agree , roger maybe can training hard , but he will never has the same atlethic condition than nole and nadal , or even murray.
yeah because Federer hired Annacone and has his own personal training team just BECAUSE he doesn't train very much, right? sorry no. the reality is he's 31, he can't physically last long necessarily than his younger opponents, and as far as improvement, the reality is he's hit the point where there's not much left. I'm sure he trains a lot but it's more to keep his machinery working and up to date than like it would be for a younger player. a 20 year old guy on tour needs to train insanely, not someone like Federer who's already got all the tools just needs to stay active and in shape. if anything it would be a mistake for Roger to train TOO much, as he is older and can't handle being insanely active. too many miles on him. he does a good job of hiding the fact that his physical prowess has been decreasing, but matches like the 5 set with Murray sort of expose this

This thread is bullshit. Federer is the fittest 31 year old i've ever seen.

Unless he has mastered nasal breathing, that is. I have never seen him on his knees or winded or even sweating heavilly like Djokovic or Nadal.

As for peak Fed, he was inhuman.

Australian Open 06, FO 09, lots of other slams, he came out in the final fresh as a daisy after a long 5 set semi.

Hell, he even reached the semis of the 08 AO WITH MONO, after an epic 9-7 5th set vs Tipsaravic earlier in the tournament. How the hell do you do that if your not insanely fit?

I remember hearing the exact opposite a few times from some of the BBC pundits, they mentioned how he has to take a few guys with him to dubai for training because the sessions were so exhausting that they would take turns hitting with him.

Well tbh during his peak Fed used to win in 3/4 sets most of the time. He once recovered from 2 sets down against Nadal in Miami, and lost a 5 hour match in Rome, but I wouldn't say it was because of poor fitness. He also lost that AO semi against safin, but then again I wouldn't blame his fitness for that. It may have been the problem in AO and USO final in 2009, but that wasn't peak Federer anymore.

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

Federer said part of the reason he was playing in less tournaments this year was to re-focus on training as he was really lax with it last year.

One of the most ludicrous posts I've seen, but thanks for the hot picture.

He's always had a bit of a tummy, no? It appears and disappears though.

well , my impression is that in his peak roger didn`t needed a really hard training because with only his game destroyed all the tour , but with nadal in my opinion he would needed more training that with the rest of the tour...........

but now , that roger needs a more hard training , the guy won everything and he is still winning gs , tournys , nº1 and more....and because that , he is not very focused in training
