Federer is far from being the player he was circa 2004-2007, I think there is a good chance that you will be puckering up.

Any method to restore it to a more tactical sport again would be welcomed by me. Failing that, if it becomes all about power and size again, then I can as a spectator always fall back on Badminton (a much better spectator sport imho) and other passions like cup sailing and cycling again... Track cycling has to be experienced at least once if your a sports fan.
Thank you very much for your input.On principle,I'm opposed to punishing someone for their natural gifts...and there ARE elements of skill to good serving;however,we agree in several respects.I've seen matches where Serena was being clearly outplayed in virtually every aspect of the game...and won ONLY due to her service edge.She's not the only one,of course but,regardless of who it is,such a one-dimensional victory wasn't what the founders of the sport intended,if I had to guess.In Serena's defense,she's inarguably an all-time great,whereas there are guys,in that cesspool of swishy unbearable punks known as the ATP,who are nothing more than Serve Machines...little more than club pros w/o their singular advantage.

Serena's only human(though our favorite J.W. loses her holy rectitude and becomes SUB-human sometimes when umpires piss her off),so it wouldn't be any surprise if her service edge encouraged her to play lazily or sloppily in matches-especially during an opponent's service games(i.e.:'I can just serve my way out of trouble whenever I want').Though she served powerfully both on the faster green clay and on the Blue Freak Show at Madrid,many of us have noticed how Serena often avoids slow,red clay like the plague,and she was as useless as teats on a bull at RG this year...other than the headlines she created by her extra-early exit.I'm not going to play God by pretending to read Ree's mind,but I wouldn't call it a wild assumption that she disliked her relative inability to overpower foes or end points rapidly with one shot on red clay

"Good chance"?With it coming from a Mr.Prediction like YOU,we all know how to take that analysis for its comedic value.By that same standard,you probably think that Lady Gaga has a GOOD singing voice

Is it time to break completely unrelated to Caroline mens tennis into its own thread?

Well,your passion as a Fed fan leads me to believe that you think he's still capable of greatness...or else why would you get your hopes so high?

I'm issuing a challenge to the rest of the posters to see who can predict exactly WHEN you'll have your first Apocalypse moment during the Final.I can envision a typical Protoss moment--in the VERY first game of the match:

Chair Umpire: Love-15
Protoss: Great!Double Fault!Fed is already hopelessly behind!

Me too. He's just the coolest guy ever. It could be so much fun.

Here's an interview with Marray/Nielsen right after the match (in English) (probably Geo restricted?): http://tv2sport.dk/det-royale-par-fo...at-vaere-sandt

just make a Caro doubles thread - he would be relevant there

Long time no read, good to see you back...

FLN is Carolines fed cup team mate so pretty much qualifies for a Caroline related thread.

I was more thinking of the mens reults, live scores, and adulation postings being irrelivant to both a Scandi player section, a Caro thread, and WTF in general, so rather than this thread being flooded with such posts and used as a MTF live score toilet they deserve there own thread which those with zero interest in Fed, Puerto, Nole, and Andy can knock themselves out

Though your idea isn't bad in theory,I can tell you from experience that posters in one of my other fave's forum tried to start such a thread a couple of years ago...and the mods nixed the effort.That means we might be stuck with more Protoss point-by-point nightmares from Swishville(ATP) for the foreseeable future

Just for that I should spam your inbox with Atp live scoring.
