Meanwhile, if Serena applied herself outside of slams and YEC, she'd have won more... so far, outside of those 5 events, she hasn't won another title since April 2008
So I guess you're saying: Fed is lucky that the majors are best of 5 sets then..'cause obviously he can't win best of 3 matches anymore despite trying?!

Re: Serena and the mens game...

Federer is a daddy now, he cannot be on the tennis court as much, he can only gear up for the majors, Kim is doing exactly that anyway. Justine has barely played since she got back, she too is morphing into a Serena. If anything of all the aforementioned players, serena is playing more now. She has been injured last couple months though.
Is Federer tanking? I cannot imagine him blowing mps in slams like he has done these couple tournies. The last time he did that in a lsm was AO 05 against Safin.

I agree. Justine and Fed's games are nothing alike.

In reverse order for the past twelve months:

finals of Sydney '10, losiging to Dementieva

won the YEC (going undefeated)

round of 16 in Beijing, losing to Petrova

semis in Toronto, losing to Dementieva

round of 16 in Cincy, losing to Bammer

quarters of Stanford, losing to Stosur

finals of Miami, losing to Azarenka

the only 'poor' results were the three straight losses during the clay season.

No next. The point of posting is to think about other points of view. I'm sure beating Roger in three sets at a grand slam would be another animal as well.

You don't see alot beyond ur beyond ur own narrow views. There r direct and indirect comparisons...nuance if u will. But subtext doesn't seem to be ur strong suit.
