Look at that frightened old man.

Look at the bounce height. They clearly slowed down the courts. Federer would own this kid on a real court.

Dolgopolov and Almagro played and match in an exhibition at buenos aires and almagro called a ball girl of about 12 to play a few point agains dolgopolov and she won the 2 point they played, she served and did 2 great passing shots, not that he played for real but the girl could hit the ball not like this kid. Cant find a video but it was really fun to watch.

Weak era.

Clearly shows Federer can't be GOAT when he loses to upcoming players.

Castiel 12-09-2012 01:18 PM

He needs a bigger racquet.. that's all.

Netspirit 12-09-2012 02:29 PM

I think his movement has declined. He did not even make an attempt to get to that ball.

Also, see where he chose to return the serve? He clearly cannot hang with younger guys behind the baseline.

Also, his forehands did not look explosive to me at all - too spinny, none of that 2005 blistering pace.

This is the most entertaining match of the year. Federer clearly at his prime against the Nadal's half-brother that just came back from a leg surgery.

the real treat of the video is seeing Fed sit on the ground against the wall (looks like a little kid smiling), that's good, old fashioned fun, the man's still smiling when he plays and that puts a smile on the face of the fans too

Especially when you know he's a stone cold killer in a real match.

When the ball kid played against Tsonga with Federer's racquet, he couldn't even connect with the ball and just whiffed. Must be used to a large racquet.

Man that was embarrassing. Tsonga put nothing on that serve and the kid still couldn't get a racket on it hahhaha

SwankPeRFection 12-10-2012 08:58 PM

OMFG! Give me the racquet!!! Just once I'd kill to be able to play a point out against one of them like that. I cannot believe these balls boys don't play any freaking tennis. WTF?!

Cause it was Federers racquet. 364gr and 355 swingweight for a child was to heavy .Dont blame him .
