    Good stuff. Not surprising to me…I bet if you track more and more Federer matches, you’ll see that when he is off his groundstrokes, he is reeely off. It would be great if the ATP automatically kept these stats for all players, so you could do some real comparisons. You wonder what the mean efficiency % across the top 20, for example, would be – 85%? 90%

    I always enjoy your articles about Kei Nishikori. Thank you. Well, he unexpectedly lost to Andujar yesterday. Like federer, some bad day, perhaps.

    Federer is using the same tatics that was used by Pete Sampras during his last years. Avoiding play many tournaments in order to preserve his body, relaying on his excellent service and forhand to shorten rallies, risking winners on return points. No surprise his has chosen Paul Annacone as a coach. I wonder if that is the best strategy for Federer, considering his strong baseline game.
