    There are youtube videos about Fed playing against Agassi in 2005 AO.
    Compared his looks then to today. He looks so different now. That time he was only 24, looking like a very energetic thin youngster who are ready go blast, with that hair.

    These days he looks more mature, more like a gentleman on the court, with much less that kind of energy he had. And the face and body does look slightly more plump. Only 2 years made such a big difference.

    He does seem a bit thicker. perhaps extra attention's being paid to the strength training?

    Just imagine when he is 28.I think today's victory was sweet but i am starting to wonder when wimbledon will grow some balls and speed up the damn surface.

    Fed's not used to having someone come after him on centre court at wimby the way nadal did today. I'd had have a few more gray hairs myself after a match like today. I recommend Fed get himself a good coach to take some of the pressure off his shoulders. He's relying upon himself too much. Having someone in his box to look up to when he got in trouble in the fourth like the rest of the players have would have been a big help. He's going to need a little bit of help to keep Nadal at bay -- the kid's gotten good!

    Seriously I dislike how they slowed down the surface as it affects the quality of play. Now we see less players coming to the net. Who would have thought that wimbledon would become a haven for baseline tennis. Blah.

    agreed.
    its just like clay with a boost so the rallies are more exciting since its a bit faster
    but no THAT fast.

    Everyone gets thicker with age (unless you have some sort of disease).
    It doesn';t matter if your weight stays the same, your body will still always fill out for better or worse.
    Go look at the Roddick/federer semi of wimb from '04. Roddick looks really really skinny.

    I noticed too that Fed doesn't look as young and fresh compared to a 2005 Fed. The aging process is indeed more noticeable on tennis players than regular people.

    And he'd shaved off all his hair for years (to emphasize that he has no need, or even no way to hide any scar from plastic surgery?)

    Although I like Sampras so much, I still highly suggest he take some hair transplant.
