I will miss Federer--when he has retired. No, I do not know anything secret or special, but of course we know that one day he will retire. I will miss the one-handed backhand. I will miss his "elegance" and stoicism. I will miss that occasional classic style of play (with lots of net-play when appropriate). I will miss those forehands with impossible angles. I will miss his flowingly smooth movement and footwork. I already miss those god-like performances.
