    Federer responds to Mats Wilander

    Fed yesterday was reminded he had a lot of breakpoints and also had a couple of DFs while closing out, and that Mats said as you get older pressure becomes harder to handle and it's tougher to close out matches. Fed gives a thoughtful answer. Go to 05:37.

    A particularly awesome shot by Federer

    After the final I scrambled immediately to rewatch one specific shot - a FH half volley from Fed in the 3rd. To put it mildly, it's awesome. And deserves a gif or two. I made these @TheMaestro1990 's video here (click).

    Borg vs Mcenroe - the movie

    (not sure if this is the correct forum for such a topic) As someone who has been following tennis for years something like this is cheesy at best, cringey at worst. Not sure if I can actually sit through it. Then again I don't like sports movies in general. They tend to overdramatize things...

    Federer's racquet change, in hindsight

    Looks excellent now, doesn't it? People were rightly saying the change might have hurt his forehand so at the end it might have been a bad idea. You could say the FH in this AO was still not as beastly as it used to be. But I've heard Fed state in an interview couple days ago (before the final)...

    Federer flashback, Paris 2011: pushing the button to win

    Nostalgia time for Fed fans. Yesterday I caught a recently uploaded highlight video (click here) of Federer's final against Tsonga in Paris, 2011. While a very satisfying victory for Fed (first in Paris Masters), those who watched it at the time may remember this was a so-so match where a...

    Guru vs Fed - the first time

    I just found the highlights (apparently it's a newly uploaded vid) of Guru's first true lesson - what happened later that year is surely proof of his merits: Ok so jokes aside, I don't remember this match and what I noticed is how the 20 year-old Monfils you watch in that vid and the Monfils...

    Flashback - Fedrinka wins gold

    Nadal serving position to the ad side

    Has anyone noticed Nadal has been standing farther left while he's serving to the ad side? I actually noticed it in Madrid, might have started doing it earlier. Same in today's match. I don't remember him serving from there before. Could it be he wants to get an easier spin to the right with...

    "You can't be taught to play like Federer"... Is it really so?

    This is actually a response to christos_liaskos' post in the "Your favourite pro shot" thread.. But seeing how my response is actually way off topic and can be made a new topic of discussion, I decided to go with a new thread... Now I'm no tennis coach, and you say you are one, I must ask...

    Federer's Wimbledon and USO streaks ended on a high note

    Think about it. Federer's 5 in a row Wimbledon streak ended against his main rival Nadal, at the final, in a match for the ages. His 5 in a row at USO ended against a very talented youngster, again in the final, and again in an epic match. I think that's something. In both cases, he...
