Last night, I was searching for matches of Fed in his domination days to see exactly how he was able to dominate everyone - I came across the Miami match to see how the younger federer in his prime faired against nadal - What I saw kinda surprised me - Federer seemed to play very similar to how he plays against rafa now - a large amount of unforced errors from the forehand. A few things that I noticed: Fed's serve bailed him out of a few more difficult service games than it has as of late & he tried to pounce onthe nadal 2nd serve more often back then but he looks pretty much the same. Rafa was still constant in attacking the Fed backhand but I saw him choke on a few more crucial points with unforced errors than I see him do now --- his serve was not so much a weapon back then although he still had some clutch serving, he wasn't so great at net, & in the 5th set he seemed gassed & out of energy. I think Fed was 23 yrs old at the time & Rafa 18. I'm a fan of both guys & am just trying to make objective observations but it seems to me that Fed's gameplay seems very similar now to the way he was 4 yrs ago but Rafa seems to have improved his game more noticeably - Anyone else who's looked back on this match have any thoughts?
