Did you see his match with Tipex at last year's AO? His serve was the
only reason he won.

Lately in slams he serves pretty big and accurate.

What about "Hey Jarkko, why do you always choke horribly when you get
a chance to beat a top player?"

Seems a reasonable question ...

That would have been a great chance to dispense some useful advice
such as "Hey Rog, when you play Murray you really need to get some big
first serves in, avoid coming in on his backhand, and consider more
use of selective chipping-and-charging on his second serves. Oh, and
by the way, your backhand totally sucks".

It's not one of the really big serves, but it's still pretty big. Sampras
couldn't get it back in 2001.

I don't know if people do that to Federer, but Jarkko has mentioned a
couple of times how people in the street or a tennis club or anywhere
give him "advice" on serve or forehand or something. Must be hard to
be friendly and polite in these situations...
