From the May issue of Inside Tennis: In a letter to the Editor: Roger Federer is the best player of all time, except, perhaps, of his own time. From Bill Simons article on Federer (my select excerpts - other parts are flattering as usual): His backhand, while still eloquent, occasionally reveals itself as a vulnerable (dare we say old-fashioned?) stroke in comparison to the two-handed power blasts of Nadal, Djokovic, Murray. The lines on his maturing face may be deepening. But more often we get a certain peeved attitude: a quiet storm of denial, a simmering anger.
