Has anyone else been watching Roger Federer lately? He's dropped a bit in his game and intensity.. I used to feel like no one could beat him. But now people are beating him left and right. What gives? Do you think his confidence is shaken? Do you think he's losing his drive? Maybe his personal life is getting in the way and he's not really concentrating on tennis anymore. I know if I had his gifts and talent, I'd be playing as hard as a I could all the time. Thoughts?

Roger is certainly not the man he was but could come back later in the season. He was saying at the end of last season that he could still improve. His competition is now a lot stronger too and it is not so easy to stay on the top rung. Nadal has also fallen away a bit but Djokovic, Murray and Martin del Potro are getting better. The clay court season will separate the men from the boys.
