Taking something off your serve does not necessarily help you hit the right spots at the level Federer serves. His serve is an integral part of his game and known as one of the most precision serves in history. I don't know why anyone would be remotely surprised that his serve would be most affected initially by such a big change in his racquet.

Haas looked odd here to, as did Verdasco - neither of them were using new frames that I am aware of. I put it more down to the surface and these odd Tretorn balls than anything specifically racquet-related for Federer.
