Obviously this video proves that Federer hasn't declined at all since 2007

And big servers never seemed to be a problem for Federer. Roddick was not. And present day big servers like Raonic or Isner are neither.

On the low bouncing indoor courts he is till using that tactic a lot.

Yup, Fed was great at neutralizing big servers.

The real shame is that Roddick changed his game so much post-2004 in an attempt to beat Roger, but it really screwed him up. His changes made him more consistent but lowered his peak.

Roddick's approach shots from that match still make my eyes bleed. The guy was a complete joke tactically.

And still won countless tournaments and was a consistent top player?

But problem cannot be found?

But even so, Roger was only hitting well-placed shots, but I kinda preferred what I saw last week against Tsonga or Murray
I watched all of his matches in both tournaments (aside from this year's loss to Nadal).

Yeah: it's just you.

How can it be true?

Fed has an explosive shot in 07, his game is the same today with slower speed. He still won with 50 UEs shows the muggery in the tour.

Both the semi final performances of Federer and Gonzalez in this tournament were pretty much perfect. You don't strike the ball much cleaner than what these two did in their respective matches...

Oh lord what sort of dark times tennis would be in if everyone blindly rushed to net against Federer.
