Yeah, someone linked to the Safin-Federer match at the 2005 Australian Open recently and it was night and day. He used to be so much quicker. That's by far the biggest drop in his game. He's continued to improve his serve and backhand over time, but there's only so much he can do when his explosiveness has declined so much.
