I am watching this match on The Tennis Channel right now, and I have to say that Federer's game has not changed AT ALL. He is still playing the way he used to, its just that everyone else has stepped up their games. Although Nadal wins this match, Federer played some of the best clay court tennis I have seen from him. I think the difference between Federer then, and Federer now is just the confidence he had with his forehand and serve, and also just his nerves of steel. Even when he went for his shots and missed, he did not choke like he does now. Also now he shanks a lot of shots and has numerous unforced errors. I think watching this match would maybe give Federer a bit of confidence just for the three big claycourt tournaments coming up. HIS VOLLEYS WERE SICK!
