Salzenstein: Reasons Federer will not be number one again...
 
Not sure if this has been posted here. The article is from last year of course.

Then followed his crowliscious post when Roger became number 1 again:)

No idea who this is, but at least he ate his crow like a grown up.

What an idiot. "Djokovic and Nadal can keep hitting to Federer's backhand and have their way with him." Yeah that's why Federer keeps abusing Djokovic whenever they play from his BH wing. :lol:

Nadal is probably the only guy in history to be able to do that. A guy like Djokovic would probably mess him up harder if Federer had a 2 hander, like he does with Tsonga and co. Federer is hitting BH down the line winners left and right if Djokovic does that.

tbh, while I thought federer would definitely win more majors after AO 2010, I didn't think he'd come back to #1 ...

Lol, why try to make doom and gloom predictions about someone who has that much talent? Not too smart. I don't think he will end the year at #1 but I wouldn't be surprised if he had another brief stint at #1 in 2013.

Crow is a dish best served cold.

Same here. I can't comprehend that he is #1 with the others in their prime.

It is unlikely that Federer will have the same year end performance as last year, however if he does repectably....

If Djokovic loses in AO final or semifinal to Nadal/Murray or Fed himself, Federer could quite likely regain his No.1 status.

Yes Federer will likely lose #1 status before the year end, but there is another window of opportunity for #1

It's a shame that a bunch of 24-25 year olds in the top 4 couldn't prevent a 30-year old veteran on a two-year Slam sabbatical from wresting the number one position from them, and snatching Wimbledon from right under their noses. A few months ago, Dr Zagor put it in words that even Shakespeare could have only dreamt of.:)

Salzenstein was a good junior, that's about it, obviously knows little to say this, think he's coaching some WTA girl now.

citybert 10-08-2012 09:55 AM

was a Stanford Cardinal, on the tour for some years, he had some atp points, but don't think he ever broke top 100. southpaw too

Same. This year has been a delightful surprise :)

[EDIT]

And fair play to him for accepting his mistake. It's a trait that I aspire to hold, but occasionally fail at. Bravo!

Jeff reached #91 on the ATP tour in singles and #58 in doubs according to wikipedia. Went to Stanford on an athletic scholarship and played #1 for the Cardinals for 3 or 4 of his 4 years there, I believe. Was named All-American for 2 of those years. Looks like he had enough of those ATP points to earn more than $600k.

He has posted a bit in the Tips/Instruction forum a fair amount. Has some excellent insight on teaching the game.

Salzenstein has shown many times over he doesn't really have a good take on the tour - holistically at least.

Federer is an indoor boss.
