A layman’s take on “What is wrong with Roger?”

- He should not crouch while receiving a serve especially against top players like Nadal and Djokovic. I think they are purposefully prolonging the time they take to serve by bouncing the ball excessively. It keeps Federer in the crouched position for a few extra seconds every serve which eventually accumulates to a considerable amount of time leading to fatigue.

- Whenever a serve from the opponent goes long or is in the wrong court, Roger should try and hit the ball back in the other court as this will give him extra confidence of his hitting. He used to do that regularly during his peak prowess.
