Default How come Federer is so consistent while being so inconsistent ?

What I mean by thread title that while Fedsters results have been very consistent his game is the least consistent of the top 4 and probably top 10 . It's funny actually that a guy with such an error pron game has deep runs at every tournament.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

He makes more errors than the other 3, but that's cuz he is more aggressive. Controlling for aggression, Murray is way more inconsistent.

Also, his serve.

He's 31. People act like Federer is in his mid 20's or something. He's past his prime.

People on this board expect too much from these players. If Fed is not the model of consistency after 23 consecutive GS semis and his still current GS QFs, I don't know who is. Don't know what people expect. He's surpassed my expectations already by winning W and breaking most weeks at #1 even if he doesn't win another match this year. I don't expect him to play every match at the level he did the SF and F at W. I'm just thankful he came up with the magic then. Look around at the other players - which top 10 players has reached QF or better of every GS this year - only Nole? It's like people expected him to win Olympic gold and are surprised when he's happy with the silver. Part of getting older is not being able to maintain a high level consistently but he's doing pretty well - good enough to sit at #1.

Being consistent for 5 years wasn't enough for you?

You guys are so fucking dumb, so unperceptive, it's a joy.

He isn't criticizing him for being inconsistent you thumbnuggets, he is wondering how a guy, who has the highest risk game and hits the most UEs is also the most consistent.

Compare him to, say, Kvitova. She has a potent and high risk game and as a result is pretty up and down. Federer isn't. He is asking why.

Because he's the GOAT. He makes quite a few errors, but he also gets a lot of winners. When he gets into a tight situation, he gets out it, therefore getting past all unworthy opposition until the late stages. It what makes him a brilliant champion.

Agreed.

When you get past peak age in tennis, you're going to get worse and have more slip ups over the course of a season. Hence Federer is no longer making finals or semis at worst in majors. Now he sometimes "only" makes quarter finals.

Still, he'll probably be pretty disappointed - number one in the world, in fine form, no Nadal to worry about. Should have made the final, really.

Well, Federer's aggression means he is always in control of his destiny, while someone like Murray often gets in the risk of beeing taken out by someone going on a redhot streak.

Berdych might be the only player who can take away Federer's serve completely and leave him out of taking control early on, which forced Federer to take even more risks to try to still be in command, making it look more erratic.

Federer would never hit that many UEs against lets say Ferrer, because he doesnt need to stress and fight to be in command of the match.

Calm down kid. I read the title and wrongfully assumed it was another thread bashing Federer.

If the forum wasn't such a shit hole and the community wasn't so bad, I might have read the post thoroughly.
