i have noticed that federer has had some hard matches recently that everyone will think he will win fine ... eg this one .. y do u think it is ? do u think its the other people are really good and can challenge him or do u think he has no confidence ( i doubt this) what do u think it is ?

I think it's down to Federer to be honest.  Think
It's not like he's lost his golden touch but ...i think he doesn't have that raring passion that he did in previous years.
I thought 2005 was an excellent year for him. Can't see this same pattern carrying on.... People can challenge him - not just Nadal! yes
I can't see Federer going down the rankings. No. But people know what to expect. No doubt Federer has proved to be a mighty player - but it has to slow down one day.

Plus he might want to put a bit more time on home matters! Wink

awww thats a well swaet picture ... yeah i undertstand where you are coming from Julie maybe its coz 2005 was such a good year people are going to expect him to keep that level of play up whihc is gonna be impossible all the time .. yeah he is still gettin into nearlly every final he trys for but he is having difficult matches on the day .
i think it makes tennis more intrestting though coz in 2005 when ever u watched Fed play someone u were like " o federer is going to win" ( minus nadal . Nalbandian and a few other exceptions)

hartfield was not a bad player. i watched this whole match. hartfield played very well. no signs of nerves plus (for a clay courter) he knew how to end rallies...

Maybe Fed's getting bored. Mixes things up a little and gets it wrong. Or maybe he's playing games like how far into losing a set can I come back from. Or maybe he's getting too cocky for his own good. Still, i wouldn't really call a victory in 3 close!

And didn't take it! Hard to believe we're talking about a slam match in which a player ALMOST took a set off another guy as close. If he had taken it Fed would have won in 4. Guys have taken sets off him and we've still not called it close. Really needing to be sitting at a set and a break to say that.

I think he must have Sunday's match at the back of his mind . You want to see Fed fired up? Wait for Wimbledon. The annoying thing is they'll prbably seed Nadal in the opposite half of the draw (2 would be ludicrous, along with anything else over 6) denying fed any chance to make up any of that 6-1 deficit (as there's no way in hell Nadal will get past round 4 on grass). This will be true in every tourney in which they both play. so the only time they'll ever meet is on clay where Fed makes the final. I doubt he will ever get the chance to level their meetings, unless someone else arrives to knock Nadal down a place or two (come on Andy.)

It's true, it's be utterly ridiculous to have Nadal seeded 2 for wimbledon. That's why they do need to have their own system. Much as I like Nadal it has to be Andy Roddick they give the number 2 to. Or indeed Nalbandian if he's fit. Even Ljubicic should be above Nadal.

I dont think Nadal will be in the top 4. no   

But frankly speaking, I dont think it matters much if we go by his previous records on grass. Whistle 

Of course, he may have improved. Frown

And Nalbandian is a doubt for Wimbly, he withdrew from the semis and Halle this week.

seeding should be based on how you did last year at the tournament... not on ranking...
