Federer knows he can go for broke on the first serve against Roddick because if it misses it's mark, he can send in a safe second serve, get the ball in play and outmaneuver Roddick. Against Rafa, it's a risky poposition. Just look at their past matches and you'll know what I'm saying.
Are you serious ? Fed served pretty well in the 2k7 and 2k8 finals too . In fact, the only time fed served real badly vs nadal was the AO 2009 F..
