It's certainly possible. It's just possibly that competition got stronger.
I think he now defends better with backhand against top players.
But his foot speed gotta be slower now. And as Cahill once pointed out, Federer
still plays touch conservative on break chances. That's something got worse
since so called his "prime" years.
