Subject: Fear factor and how to overcome it
During Federer's dominance, Federer was down 0-40 many times and
always pulled out with a few brilliant serves. Sometimes those serves
were not even so brilliant but the opponent could not believe that he
could break Federer's serve. It happened so many times and against so
many opponents, that one could not help feeling sorry for the poor
blokes.
It seems that Federer has a similar problem with Nadal. Nadal was down
0-40 and came back in the decisive third set and we know that Nadal's
serve is not his greatest weapon. After Nadal came back from 0-40, he
did that again on his next serve from 15-40. It was unreal.
Federer needs to beat Nadal and beat him bad to overcome his fear of
Nadal. He can do it but he needs some real coaching and sound
advice.

I agree, Fed doesn't need a coach, he's clever enough to do well on his own
and hence has done extremely well without one. Also I don't think it's fear
that lost games when Fed was 0-40 up, it's simply Nadal's brilliant play.
