++ I'd wager he didn't REALLY want to play Davis Cup (in light of the
trauma of the AO) and given Melbourne does not want to go into Indian
Wells and Miami even slightly mentally drained... so... he had to bail
on Dubai AND Davis Cup as a package deal, announcing 'the probably
real reason' of wanting to do maintence training on his back and over
all fitness... it takes away from match readiness in terms of form...
BUT... it could be a signal that he's looking to actually WIN Indian
Wells and Miami, in the sense of loading up his proverbial eggs to nab
a hardcourt 1000 points plus, SHOULD he actually nab a win... he must
be feeling a serious need to get another significant hc win WHILE
keeping his schedule light until his summer run...

Well, this is a big bummer. We in India don't get to see top pros,
so I am flying to Dubai to catch the SF & F - have the tickets
already.
It's quite unfortunate that Roger won't be there and there's a
decent
chance Rafa may drop out after his Rotterdam final injury. So when
is Murray annoucing that he is skipping Dubai to tend to his
ankle?
Then my cup of woe would truly overflow.

None of us can read Federer's mind to see how he really felt. One
thing I did notice is that Federer's serve speed was slower in the
final than any of his matches at the AO (by several mph). Yet he
still served like 10% first serves.

Regardly of his injury or not, I don't think he could have beaten a
fit/fresh Nadal. But Nadal definitely was there for the taking in
that match, but Fed's fear of Nadal (and possibly some other issues)
prevented him from taking the title.

Perhaps I should say he couldn't be arsed ? Why ? Because who gives a
fuck about a "3" when his only objective now is to bag "7"s and "5"s.
?

And, especially since he has won more "3"'s than Sampras no ?

After he gets his next "5" he will also have won more of those than
Sampras too so then he won't be arsed to win any more of those either.

His total focus then will be on "7"'s and only "7"s which he can keep
on winning for another 5 or 6 years to get 3 more and then he won't be
able to be arsed to do anything because he will have more of
everything that Sampras. Then, he will just have fun and probably win
a few more just for the hell of it to "rub it in".

well it's true. it was at one of the changeovers. just as he was about
to get up to play. you aren't very observant are you ? short attention
span ? ADD perhaps ? No wonder you like sampras.

Could be, but if it's not the injury, then I think being ashamed is more
probable than being heart-broken.

Yeah I have trouble buying the injury, but who knows.... Perhaps he is just
trying to retool his psyche. He should definitely see a sports
psychologist. It is ironic that before the AO Federer said something about
realizing now that he is going to win some and lose some. It sure didn't
seem like that during the ceremony!

I think he had realized he was going to win AO and lose FO, and when
it didn't happen that way, it showed in the ceremony...

but you have no problem buying rafa's injury against Murray ? you know
the one where after he called the trainier began running around like a
mongoose then immediately broke Murrays serve and won the set ?

i'd say you are well and truly biased with rafa fan fucking
tendencies.

No no, I find it questionable when all the athletes do that kind of thing.
I hate how often some of these guys call for trainers. But given how well
Federer was playing in some matches at the AO I can't quite swallow an
injury from last year. But what do I know?

He's ashamed of his meltdown at AO and hope people will forget about
it if they don't see his face for awhile.

Very much possible, not a silly suggestion, not at all.

Good move. Federer is protecting his body for more important
tournaments. Nadal should follow his exampla end take it easy also.

That's true. Who knows if some of those losses may have been part of
his *tune-up management* strategy?

Actually, if I recall correctly, Fed had a pretty packed schedule as
well - but he was losing early while Nadal was alive late in the
tournament just about everywhere. I don't think his scheduling wasn't
much more intelligent, he kept losing early enough to remain
relatively fresh...

Yes, part of the reason Fed won last year's USO was more intelligent
scheduling. While Rafa was
killing himself all year, Fed saved up some energy and snuck out a
Slam at the end of the year.

He needs more time to perfect his brand new Sampras-like game which
will blitz Nadal off the court next time they meet ...

This is surprising for sure. I think he could still use Dubai for few
practice sessions.
I don't know if he really has back issues or not, but the one thing
I'm sure about that his serving was never the same since the back
injury and I posted about the big number of double faults he is
committing since YEC 08.
Is he working with a new coach now? Is retirement headlines coming
soon? wondering what is coming next :)

Just guessing...could it be he feels his poor serving was a result of
his back feeling weak?

IDK.

No, his serving was excellent at AO apart from his final match against
Nadal. My guess is that it is a combination of trying to focus on the
most important stuff and feeling a slight pain in his back while practicing.

PS.

It seems a little bit odd to blame back problems from last fall. He
didn't seem to be bothered at all at AO. Strange.

PS.
