The story continues to unravel. The history book begins to write new chapters. This is the career of Roger Federer. A Legend to everyone who has ever picked up a tennis racquet. Roger is the last of the traditionalists in todays game. Roger comes about as a true gentleman unwilling to give into change in a rapidly modernizing industrial world. Take one good look at Federer, he is a player who could have played in the 1930's but is playing in the modern game. While many have resorted to speed, and hitting the ball as hard as humanly possible, here is a player who subsuquently abhors that idea. Federer moves gracefully and works on his shotmaking more than anyone in the modern game. Whats more amazing is that Federer is not the greatest athlete, does not have the greatest speed, and is not the strongest player. You would think by these criteria that he would be struggling on any amateur tour. But this is the man who has beaten the world 8 times over. A man who has conquered the 7 seas and whos legacy is written in stone. Roger Federer is the last of the traditionalists.

But yeah.

There will be more... The game continues on even though an all time great retires.. There will be new guys with insane talent who come and dominate the game and do so effortlessly.. Theres always has been always will be.

Before there was Pancho there was Tilden, After them was Laver, from laver it went to Borg, then to Pete, then to Federer... From Fed, there will be more

You guys need to learn to relax. The OP's threads are so dripping with hyperbole that it's beyond ridiculous. Not only is Federer not the last of "classically minded" players, he's not even the most traditional player out there today. There are plenty of players that have more of an all-around game than Federer and have more traditional technique.

Translation: Conquistadorian to English

Federer is pretty good at tennis. He doesn't swing that hard or run really fast or anything, but I think he still wins a lot of matches so he must be good. Kinda like Rod whatchamacallhim and Something Rosewall. I never saw them play, but I figure they probably play like Federer. I think I'm the only one who realized that he's pretty good, so I'll keep making threads with titles of the format "Player name: Exaggerated claim" to enlighten people about his skills.

Feds forehand is the best in the game, his swing speed is only rivaled by nadal ... so wtf is this? i like fed but hes modern, he uses a windshield wiper, massive spin, and his foot speed is crazy. He may have traditional touches in his game but to be at the top of a modern game you best believe he has a modern approach. stop this nonsense please, this board is cluttered enough with childish nadal and fed fanboys sucking each other off.

I disagree respectfully. Federer's game is built around the history and the preservence of the game. Federer has a game that is built to handle any style of play that follows suit. Roger is a player who can change, nearly redistribute his game in other facets by playing YOUR game. Federer's game is built for porevious generations, but hes soo good that he can outmuster modern baseline constiuints. Roger can play percentages. Hes proven this before and will make you break down.

Conquistador is the last of the trolls on todays boards. Conquistador comes about as a true moron unwilling to stop it with his awful threads. Take one good look at Conquistador, he is a troll who could have trolled in the 1990's but internet speeds were not fast enough at this point. Alas we are stuck with him forever. While many have resorted to actually contributing positively to discussion, Conquistador insists on starting pointless threads. When Conquistador says that he is leaving the boards for good, he subsuquently abhors that idea. Conquistador moves quickly and works under at least two other user names, "severus" and "BlakeGOAT". Whats more amazing is that Conquistador is not the greatest troll, does not have the greatest vocabulary, and is not the smartest troll. You would think by these criteria that he would be trolling on MTF. But this is the man who has trolled the world 8 times over. A man who has trolled the 7 seas and whos legacy is written in stone. Conquistador is truly the last of the dying trolls...

LONG LIVE CONQUISTADOR.

I laughed.

Back on topic, conquistador is a true tryhard whose highly exaggerated posts reveal a lack of tennis understandings that even entry level fans should grasp. Federer has acquired an amazing level of game time intensity and plays with traditional class, but his game is anything but 1930s. His forehand is modern, his baseline work is modern, his netplay is supported by modern approach shots. His grips are modern, as is his gear.

Back when I first read criticism of conquistador, I felt that it was harsh and uncalled for. However, after hunting down the list of threads that he has started, I now understand that conquistador does not care about stimulating debate or presenting coherent declarations that add to TT on TW.

Look at the grace and sheer elegance of Federer's game here. Federer is a historic shotmaker and one who plays with an ample amount of spin and is able to dictate the outcome of pace .

There has been many though and there will be many again.. Im not understanding why people around here think Fed is the be all end all in everything in the sport of tennis.. He does everything from reasonably-well to great agreed. But its not as though he is the greatest in every aspect of the game.. Theres been better. Fed is like any other player.. He has his bread and butter.. Deadly FH, elegance and movement, dictation from the baseline. Borg had his speed, Pete had his deadly serve, Laver had his all around tactical aggressive attacking player, Edberg had his deadly net game, Pancho had his serve. But all players, Fed included, are stronger at certain things than other

I would like to agree, but I can't. Federer has mastered every shot in the book. Old tennis magazines centralized on proper technique are now irrelevant to any young tennis player today.Roger Federer is soo good that every instruction manual, every teaching guide, and every tennis academy should have Roger Federer's shotmaking at the forefront of their teaching. Roger has had that kind of impact on the game. Did I mention that he also has won a lot?

Fed has never mastered an uncanny ability of serve-volley attacking aggressive tennis.. He mastered more of the shotmaking baseline ability which he saw tenfold the results with this. Obviously if he mastered the art of attacking serve volley tennis, his h2h with Nadal probably look a little better. But he wasnt as comfortable in that type of game to rely on it. I saw this at Wimbeldon 08. Fed was caught like a deer in headlights many times and seeing Nadal's passiing shots wiz by him.. So in retrospect, NO... Fed has not mastered every aspect of the game. He is stronger at certain aspects than others as is every player.. And cant rely on every shot.. And as we've sure cant rely on his BH either as Nadal has shown as well.

Federer is a chameleon. He can change his game in order to challenge your style of play. Theres no denying that Federer will outclass you and make you ponder why you have even tried to challenge him. Roger is soo elaborate with his scheme that he has no actual style of play. Federer is not an all courter, not a defensive basliner, not a pusher, but Federer is a chameleon.

Federer adapts to your style of play. I study Federer a lot. Federer knows how to distinguish player types. Roger does not fall into ANY style of classification of player. Roger is unique. If you want to hit with Roger from the baseline, he will follow suit, if you want to serve and volley, federer will match you, and do it better. Roger is constantly adapting to different styles on the ATP Tour. What makes him the best ever is the fact that he can play any style, but play it better.

Oddly enough, his argument is truth AND funny.

You guys have some hate in you. If his topic was worthless and you knew what you came for, why did you even come in it? Especially if you knew it added to no discussion?

I agree with the topic btw, but I don't know what porevious means and maybe not every book should have Federers' picture.

But I loled at it.

If he's not HATING on another player, leave Conquistador alone.

Mr. Kitty is the last of the Puss Family in todays game. Mr. Kitty comes about as a true kitty unwilling to give into change in a rapidly modernizing world of cute animals. Take one good look at Mr. Kitty, he is a little furry animal who could have played in the Cat Show but is playing in the modern household. While many have resorted to superficial cuteness, and hitting the ball of yarn as hard as humanly possible, here is a playa who subsuquently abhors that idea. Mr. Kitty sleeps gracefully and works on his purring more than anyone in the modern game. Whats more amazing is that Mr. Kitty is not the greatest kitten, does not have the greatest speed, and is not the strongest ball of fur. You would think by these criteria that he would be struggling on any amateur Cat Show. But this is the kitty who has beaten the dogs 8 times over. A kitty who has conquered the 7 Kittens and whos legacy is written in stone. Mr. Kitty is the last of the Cutey Pies.

Federer adapts to your style of play. I study Federer a lot. Federer knows how to distinguish player types. Roger does not fall into ANY style of classification of player. Roger is unique. If you want to hit with Roger from the baseline, he will follow suit, if you want to serve and volley, federer will match you, and do it better. Roger is constantly adapting to different styles on the ATP Tour. What makes him the best ever is the fact that he can play any style, but play it better.

I'd like to see him play santoro style.......

Anyway nice post jamesblackfan, i needed a cheer up.

This "guy" is the only one on these boards who creates silly threads such as this. JBF has not made silly threads like these for James Blake.

So how would you know that seeing that you're a "new" user - or maybe not!

The adorable story continues to unravel. The history book begins to write new chapters. This is the career of Mr. Kitty. A Legend to everyone who has ever picked up a cute kitten. Mr. Kitty is the last of the Puss Family in todays game. Mr. Kitty comes about as a true kitty unwilling to give into change in a rapidly modernizing world of cute animals. Take one good look at Mr. Kitty, he is a little furry animal who could have played in the Cat Show but is playing in the modern household. While many have resorted to superficial cuteness, and hitting the ball of yarn as hard as humanly possible, here is a playa who subsuquently abhors that idea. Mr. Kitty sleeps gracefully and works on his purring more than anyone in the modern game. Whats more amazing is that Mr. Kitty is not the greatest kitten, does not have the greatest speed, and is not the strongest ball of fur. You would think by these criteria that he would be struggling on any amateur Cat Show. But this is the kitty who has beaten the dogs 8 times over. A kitty who has conquered the 7 Kittens and whos legacy is written in stone. Mr. Kitty is the last of the Cutey Pies.

Goat with braces. Immortalized in every respect.

Kitten with a special peel armor on it's head. We should dedicate a page alone to this one. Unique in every respect, a true legend. Injuries caused her to retire early. A pity.

Fed has never mastered an uncanny ability of serve-volley attacking aggressive tennis..

You watched him dethrone Sampras and win Wimbledon 2003 frequently playing serve and volley, right? Of course...grass used to be fast.

Obviously if he mastered the art of attacking serve volley tennis, his h2h with Nadal probably look a little better.

Considering that the ball sits up more on grass now and most of their matches have been on clay anyway...exactly how would serve and volley improve the h2h? Sounds like a suicide plan to me...

Fed is one of the two fastest movers in modern tennis. The other guy is Nadal.

Fed's forehand is one of the most feared in mens tennis for its power, accuracy & versatility.

Fed is healthy, strong & still dominates at 28. Same can't be said about the others. What makes one a great athlete IYO?

Well, I halfway agree that he's the last of a dying breed because he's got halfway traditional strokes with a pretty modern game.

However, I feel he's not the last of a dying breed because he's not really a part of a breed per se. He's become kind of his own type of player - flexible and versatile...attacker and counter-attacker. Nastase comes to mind more than the more obvious Pete, Laver, Tilden, Budge, Kramer and Gonzales.

He's as stylish as Nastase (or Rios) with a career as brilliant as anyone's .... with all due respect to Laver (2 Grand Slams) and the less documented pre-open era titans of the game.

As I think about his 15 slam wins, the easier way to count them year-to-year is by looking at the ones he did not win. That's a testament to the man's incredible record.

Well, it's silly to quibble whether he's the last of a dying breed or the one and only of his kind at this point. Great guy, lots of integrity, amazing player, loved by purists and casual fans alike.

Viva Federer! We love you, man!

Personally I think the guy gets off by writing. This is a sad attempt to showcase his writing skills. Fed is modern. All this talk of chameleon is utter ******ation. Do I try to model my game after fed? yes. He is after all the greatest to ever play, but the your making him sound untouchable, if hes such a chameleon why can't he beat Nadal at his own game? Listen, this is fanboyism to the max - it is annoying. Better players will arise and records will be broken again, some kid is going to refine federers technique/revolutionize it and become even greater, this is the cycle. We all know his game plan, slice/topspin backhands, run around the ball and crack a forehand. He is no chameleon, he is a genius, but no god.

Roger is the last of the traditionalists in todays game. Roger comes about as a true gentleman unwilling to give into change in a rapidly modernizing industrial world. Take one good look at Federer, he is a player who could have played in the 1930's but is playing in the modern game. While many have resorted to speed, and hitting the ball as hard as humanly possible, here is a player who subsuquently abhors that idea. Federer moves gracefully and works on his shotmaking more than anyone in the modern game. Whats more amazing is that Federer is not the greatest athlete, does not have the greatest speed, and is not the strongest player. You would think by these criteria that he would be struggling on any amateur tour. But this is the man who has beaten the world 8 times over. A man who has conquered the 7 seas and whos legacy is written in stone. Roger Federer is the last of the traditionalists.

The story continues to unravel. The history book begins to write new chapters. This is the career of Conquistador. A Legend to everyone who has ever read Talk Tennis. Conquistador is the last of the trolls on todays boards. Conquistador comes about as a true moron unwilling to stop it with his awful threads. Take one good look at Conquistador, he is a troll who could have trolled in the 1990's but internet speeds were not fast enough at this point. Alas we are stuck with him forever. While many have resorted to actually contributing positively to discussion, Conquistador insists on starting pointless threads. When Conquistador says that he is leaving the boards for good, he subsuquently abhors that idea. Conquistador moves quickly and works under at least two other user names, "severus" and "BlakeGOAT". Whats more amazing is that Conquistador is not the greatest troll, does not have the greatest vocabulary, and is not the smartest troll. You would think by these criteria that he would be trolling on MTF. But this is the man who has trolled the world 8 times over. A man who has trolled the 7 seas and whos legacy is written in stone. Conquistador is truly the last of the dying trolls...

Phew !!! I just saw your new avatar.... automatically thought it was YOU-KNOW-WHO, esp with the Alex Clayton reference. It took me a while to realize my eyes had been fooled.

Seren, you owe us all an apology for the shock and emotional trauma you have caused with your ava, I am trying to heal myself by reading the other posts.

I beg to disagree. Conquistador is (one of) the first of a NEW breed of super-duper trolls.

Just like Delpotro and Cilic to tennis, Conquistador has taken trolling to new, never before attained levels.

He is the Usain Bolt of TT.

Or the Caster Semenya if you will.

Conq. is so overhyped, he always has his rich federer shrine to fallback on, so as a result, he is never fully committed to trolling.
N_F is still GTOAT.

no way.. the guy is a wasted talent...

no one can do what he does! when in the zone he makes trolling so smooth.... so effortless!

he makes cleanest trollish strokes you will see around these boards. is backhand writing is stunning!

unlike N_F who was effective but just a junkballer (poetry wise). his trolishness was unorthodox. they are pretty much like Fed and Nad...

I agree. Conq floats effortlessly in the threads he creates. Absolutely inch-perfect, his posts are like ballet, while N_F's posts are like disco dancing. And such variety in post-making unlike N_F who was quite a one-dimensional poster. I hear NF has carpa tunnel from too much posting, but Conq never tires, always fresh and smooth and bubbly like champagne.

Hail Conquistador. Long live.

Federer hits one of the hardest forehands with some of the the most spin in the history of tennis. Against lesser opponents he simply bludgeons it, takes control of the point and finishes it off. It's not all that artistic.
