it's been 3 years now? 365 days a year x 3? LOL nver mind the little tournaments...his endorsement deals pay more that prize money....if hes playing for fun, done...enough said...but he wants to win another slam, and he wont with the 90 frame anymore...4 years ago, 3 years go, yes...not anymore....he's older and weaker, not younger or stronger or faster...
not arguing with you...just a fan's observation...play for fun and enjoy losing, "good match" you're playing for your fans, etc.... but if you're playing to WIN WIN WIN, and you lose, lose lose aginst the BIG BOYS, you wonce OWNED 5 years ago...then something has gotta change...
Maybe he can, maybe he can't - but only he can answer that, not anyone on this board. If Federer isn't confident that he'd be able to execute the type of shots he wants to execute, with a bigger/smaller/etc, racket, then he's not going to execute it, and that's not his game. Confidence in your racket, is soo much more important that type, size, power, control, etc.
