Not Federer's problem if Dull wanted to have an early vacation.

Anyway great to hear that Federer is feeling better

Well, we gonna see what's going on with Federer. I am interested in this racquet switch as he appears to really be sticking with it now. In the summer, he had more power, but less control, better BH, but less FH and serve. Maybe more time will help him out?

This. I've learnt not to believe a single word that comes from Roger. And the same goes for his team of course.

If his defensive shots on the stretch land deep he is winning. Throughout 2010 till now this is his weakness that deter the slams.

They have said this for several years. Always after his painful losses they come up with some excuse... and he's back to his best before every important tournament but then he loses again despite being fully fit and they come up with new excuse etc.

It's all a part of some sort of weird aura preservation where he never really lost because other players were better.

It's nice but Roger ain't beating Nole at AO. He is not going to beat Rafa either. He is 0-2 against Rafa in AO, and how many times lost to Nole in straight? But hope he reaches the semi and the BBC personality of the year crashes and Ferrer crash before the quarters so Roger can get close to top 4

What is the new racquet he talks about? New 90 or the 98 inch one?
