Apparently the oiled up performing seal and Tsonga are there this year, so it might have to be a specially arranged exhibition. Very Happy

March 2008, he hadn't lost his dominance.

Ok, I got the next two posts wrong, so what? I wasn't "utterlly owned" as you put it.

Ok wrong on nadal winning wimbledon, but that was how I felt, maybe owned on that. lol

And I still maintain Fed lost that match rather than Nadal winning it. Fed should have won.

Hardly "utterlly owned" to be honest. If i had said something like "Fed will win everything and be world number 1 forever!" then you could say I was owned.

Federer's two sets were won in tiebreaks. Nadal was constantly in his service games. Particularly in the 5th set. Federer had like 1 BP in the 5th, whereas Nadal was always involved in return games. Also, Nadal actually won his sets via breaks of serve. Federer won both sets via tiebreaks, one courtesy of an epic Nadal choke from 5-2 up. How can you possibly say Federer was the better player in that match?

I love the guy, but he's not thinking clearly when it comes to Frauderer. Think

Perhaps it's not as over has first thought.

Once again (no matter if Nadal is not playing ATM) Fed is holding 3 slam titles and made the final of the other.

Now is holding the Fench and Wimbledon you can bet your last dollar he will be all out to try and hold all 4 at once now. Something no male player has acheived for 40 years.

Who knows how the last few tournaments would have panned out had Nadal been fit? Federer's level is certainly consistently down on what it was in the past, no way would he have struggled with Andy Roddick, even in that form, a few years ago. That said, he can still get to Slam finals at will, so he's not doing too much wrong. I feel that he's saving his mental energies for the Slams only now - Masters don't seem too important any more.

Would you say that if he got to the finals of Wimbledon and lost? That's basically what has happened because against Nadal he would not be holding the title.

His dominance is over, I expect him to continue to fail at many of the tournaments this year.

Lets wait and see if he manages to defend his US Open title, I think that will be the telling one.
Also I have a theory that players for the most part go downhill when they have kids-they have other priorities other than tennis, so lets see what happens after August  Think

The baby is surely going to have an effect - if it's due in the first week of August, which the commentators on BBC were speculating yesterday, then he surely won't be totally focussed come the US Open - Andy's chance, perhaps? Think
