Federer feller?

This is the era where a loss to Roger Federer is a positive point on any tennis pro's resume. Everyone watching the game see him with awe and are still figuring out the opponent who could beat him. Rohit Brijnath has tried his best to build a superman to beat Federer. He has also got opinions from Ramesh Krishnan and Nirmal Shekar for the construction work. He has discussed various aspects like forehand, backhand, first serve, second serve, return of serve, volley, speed and mental toughness. I enjoyed reading the entire piece, more about the second serve. Rohit keeps it the shortest, but the sweetest - it made me proud to be a Sampras fan long before I became a fan of Federer, obviously. With Federer murdering just about anyone on the tennis court, this may be a hard statement to say, but this is my piece of the internet and I can scribble anything - I am afraid that so much hype might bring an end to Federer's dominance sooner than later.

yes. It seems there is no one who can really give fedder a run for his money.. It would have been good, if Fedder had played a decade, decade and half back , with so many of the legends competing against each other..
