    It seems like he has about five pounds of belly fat that doesn't need to be there if he's going to move at his highest potential. I know some will say that's his body type and all that nonsense, but I don't think so. I think he's got a few pounds there that he doesn't need.

    He did not have the same paunch two years ago, or even last year if I remember. Perhaps, Mirka is insisting he overeats like she does.

    I'm watching the match right now; doesn't look like a belly but Fed's not moving as well as he did before.

    He has always had a "belly" it's more noticeable now since he hasn't been conditioning(not his hair) as much latelyand plus he never had defined chest so it pronounces his belly more.

    I caught this too. I think it's just his build though because if you look at the rest of him he's kinda skinny.

    I thought he always had a little bit of a belly. I find it weird that he hasn't buttoned his shirt up.

    He's always had a bit of a belly, but it is bigger than it used to be.

    I think he's always somewhat had one. It just wasn't as noticable.

    No No everyone is saying how he has a "belly" he's just not defined like you see a nadal or a ferrer..Federer probally just gained a few pounds but if his stomach circumference remained the relatiovely the same with no definition people would believe he has "fattened up"

    During an earlier match the commentator said that in Federer's book(autobiography) he says that in order to play his best tennis he feels that he shouldn't be over 80Kg. However the latest statistics have him at being at about 85Kg.

    Wow, thanks. Your comment really highlights your intelligence. My point is valid. Add something meaningful or shut the f#@* up. If you don't think Fed has gained a little weight, then make your point. If not, ignore it instead of allowing your worthless class to shine through.

    Look at how fat his dad is. It's genetics. That last bit of baby fat is always hard to get rid of.

    theres nothing wrong with having a bit of a belly

    it just means your girlfriend likes to feed you, which is good, because im sure mirka's a good cook :)

    anyway, it didn't stop his incredible match today :)( he aint the same as he was.... hes gotta play better.... especially against captain cheeto... hopefully andy murray will take care of him... :D)

    I've always thought that about Fed. I really think it's just his body type though. Some people have abs that just stick out. I think that's how Roger is.
