    the energy of the crowd.

    As his clutch ability wanes with age, he will need more than self-motivation to get through bad days or Rafa days. Most crowds are pro-Federer and would be more than willing to rally behind him at the ready.

    All he needs to do is beckon the crowd. Beckon like he did during that magical USO 08 fortnight where he showed his wild side.

    Probably the most frustrating thing to see as a Federer fan is that he STILL has the talent to beat anyone in the world, but seems terribly apathetic when he is losing

    Being emotionally detached from a match doesn't quite cut it anymore against guys who know they can mentally outlast you.
