Well what about his 13 Slams. Look at his opponents. None of them with the exception of the current level Nadal hit with today's spin. Federer can handle the flatter hitters using his current grip and racquet but throw in another variable like a heavy spin opponent plus wind or clay or grass or "gee I'm going to be a dad" and it's a recipe for disaster. Unfortunately history is set, we all know he's stubborn, so there's no changing. Frankly with his current equipment, mindset and game, there's no way he'll get past Murray let alone Nadal. A pity really, but do I feel sorry for him, well there's about 80 million reasons in the bank, not to.
