If he continues to play like he did in IW, and with a good draw, sure he can.
Many deemed his draw at IW tough and made it through despite getting sick? Maybe needs the IW bug to knock out the tougher opponents so he can even the field?
Fed is hitting great, better than Rafa and better than Djoko currently. He is 39-2 since the U.S. Open. I would bet he wins a major this year, either Wimby or the U.S. Open.
He can attack Nadal's backhand and he can rush Djokovic's forehand. He's serving accurately and powerfully, and he's much more solid at approaching the net.
I was watching those stick volleys against Rafa at IW. I've never seen him play that well @ net. Are we finally seeing the fruits of Annacone's teachings?
I would agree to that. Annacone has this all knowing smirk during the practice session I saw. It's on the video I put up here. lol
I agree about this year. His window is open, but it is closing fast.
Fed has another 4 or 5 years on tour, if he wants. Maybe three for winning a slam, if he wants it.
He will win if he has a good draw.....but will he win the French!
IM giving the Wimbledon to Djokovich, & The Open To Federer if he can do it.
but the French like always is the Great Equalizer....I think dJokovich is playing possum Because of the Great workout he did last year with the win record took out the steam from winning all four in calendar year.....so if federer has a chance it will be US Open....I think Djokovich is Gearing up the french so he can join that elite group of 4 start Majors
I think his best and only chance will be Wimbledon. Especially if he totally converts to Annacone's methods. The French belongs to Rafa.
Rafa got bounced early a few years ago and lost to Novak last year. He definitely is not as scary as he once was but he is still king of clay. We'll see.
Do you mean he lost to Novak in a clay tourny or at Roland Garros? Cuz he definitely won the French last year..
