    Paul Anacone is his coach now.

    I have heard Anacone has encouraged Fed to take his BH on the rise more than before.

    His present BH is better than I have ever seen it in his career.

    Mirka is his main coach, he also frequently browsers TW looking for helpful tips.

    Yes, his real coach(es) are the TW poster. He checks in religiously and has many usernames so he can ask for tips without giving away his identity. Who else possess the tennis wisdom aside from the TW master posters?

    Fed's BH is now acceptable. Many of the posters here have much technically superior 1BH.

    He has listened to my advice in the Pro section and improved his backhand. Let us see if he asks for any last-minute tips for the next match when he will face a real man for the first time this AO.

    There are limits to how good a 1bh can be. He should have listened to the TW board and switch to a 2bh 100 sq light racket with a 4/14 grip.

    16 is enough.

    We have not failed, there is another.

    He also frequents Odds & Ends and is apparently a connoisseur of vintage Smirnoff Ice flavors.

    Multiple usernames is a violation of TT policy. Federer should be banned.

    10. We allow one username per user. If we find you have more than one username, you will be banned.


    The guy is so arrogant I suppose he figures that the rules don't apply to him.

    I thought he was hitting his BH just a bit later these days not earlier.

    He used to hit the BH almost the instant after it bounced and it seemed he was shanking alot more because he almost had to predict the bounce.

    I'm not saying he isn't taking it on the rise still but I think hes taking it just a fraction of a second or so later where he can judge the bounce a bit and it seems that he shanks less.

    Fed's backhand is terrible, everyone knows that.
