I decided to re-watch some of Fed's AO 2009 matches before deleting them from my DVR and his forehand while still the best on tour just doesn't cause the same carnage it use to. In my opinion Fed's forehand from about 3 or 4 years ago was among the single best shots in tennis history! Right up there with the Sampras or Ivanisevic serve. I know Nadal does a great job of keeping it away from Fed's forehand but I think if Fed was doing enough damage with the forehand like he use to, he would have a better chance. I don't want discuss Fed's backhand or mental game vs Nadal since that has been discussed at length on countless threads. Is Federer doing something different technique wise and if so what can he do to regain his forehand form from 3 or 4 years ago?
