Rough for Federer Fans

Losing to Nadal or Murray has become consistent to Federer. These two players are tremendous athletes and target consistently on Federer's single handed backhand. There are other aspects in both of Nadal and Murray's games that Federer could not capitalise advantage on. It is on their second serve. Federer does not seem to attack on their second serve and also unable to convert the break points on their serves.

Federer was unconquerable between 2004-2007. Since 2008, he has fallen many times to the likes of Nadal, Murray and Djokovic. These are new era of players that Federer needs to adjust his game a little bit. He needs a coach at this time to fine tune his game else it would be disappointing to see Federer losing again in semifinals or finals of any tournament.

NB: I write this blog in utter disgust after seeing Federer losing to Andy Murray in 2009 Indian Wells ATP 1000 tournament. This is Federer's fourth consecutive defeat to Andy Murray.
