Lets face it. Federer basically tanks almost all the best of 3 events he is in today. If some dont like me putting it that way too bad, frankly speaking that is what he does. He puts in half assed efforts vs mediocre opponents he would never lose to (and rarely come close to losing to) in a slam. Now I am a Serena Williams fan but she to many extent does the same thing. The only difference is Federer gets a free pass for it, he never gets criticized for it. People say "he is saving himself for the slams" or even more ridiculously "so and so third tier or worse player was too good today" each time. Please. Federer doesnt give half a damn about the non slams. Which is fine, as long as if someone like Serena gets criticized for it he should as well, or if it is ok for him to save himself for the slams and give a half assed effort in all his best of 3 tournaments it should be for her as well. What double standards.
