I read the Federer match threads, the Federer game threads, and everything on here, and I get the impression that Fed is playing really poorly. I get the impression that he is playing far worse than the beginning of 2013. I get the impression that post back injury Fed has an equal level of play as back injury Fed. Then, I watch his matches and view the results. He's moving well, hitting well, and winning matches. He's taking Delpo to 3 and winning, pushing the #2 player in the world (and 17 match in a row winner) to three close sets. He's competitive with the guys at the top... this reminds me of 2012! During the parts of the season he's been healthy and match ready, he has been competitive with the top guys. -At the AO he beat Raonic and Tsonga before falling to a well-rested Murray in 5. -In Cincy he was on a roll until he ran in to an inspired Nadal. -At Basel he lost to Del Po in a tough match, and in Paris he beat JMDP before falling to a red-hot Djokovic in a three set battle. -Now, at the WTF, he pushed Novak to 3 again. He's competing with the best, and sooner or later he'll start pulling off wins against them, like in 2012. I know that Roger is not the same guy he was in 2006, but I don't think he's that far from his 2012 form! When healthy, he's competing with the best. What do you guys think?
