Almost every player has a weaker area which an opponent can attack and take advantage of. One can just spam balls at Federer's BH (provided you can do it consistently enough) and it tends to break down sometime or the other in the rally (something what Nadal and Djokovic do against him quite successfully). Anyone with big serve and big groundies on a good day can blow Rafa off the court as he doesn't really have a reliable ROS or BH. Some instances - Rosol vs nadal at Wimbly 12, Soderling vs Nadal at RG 09, Del potro vs Nadal at USO 09, Tsonga vs Nadal at AO 2008) But seriously how to beat this guy Djokovic. He doesn't have any glaring weakness (except his overhead maybe :twisted which an opponent can pounce on. Unbelievable retrieving, great ROS, arguably the best BH today, very reliable FH, more than decent serve. I know most of the guys here are Federer fans and might argue Federer is capable of beating him that but the reality is Djoker has lost like only 1 match against Federer in last 2 years and the only reason Federer managed to do it was because of lighter balls at RG 2011. He had a really good chance at USO but blew it big time. Don't really see him recovering mentally now after that loss against Djoker especially at this age. So is the only way to beat Djoker in best of 5 is to grind it out in a 4-5 hour slugfest? Only guys capable of hanging with him for 4-5 hours are Nadal and maybe Murray (to a lesser extent though). How to beat this guy :shock: ?
