Attack his fh

alex

Treat him with no respect nor awe
In fact look down on him

Leon

1. Contemptuously smiles, being on the brink of a loss.
2. Condescendingly claps excellent Federer's shot.
Don't remember anybody doing that against Roger. Overall, what alex said.

Veglia

Other players did that: Safin, Soderling, Haas, Nalbandian - each in one way or another

Gary Moser

Fights off double-match points.

Veglia

Two years in a row, same tournament, same round!

kitty

hmm..opens up his behind more than others while facing federer's serve?

Leon

Irritates him by a mere appearance across the net. That simple?
The only case of destroying the racket (since he has become The Federer) was vs Novak, no?

Leon

Perhaps, I haven't watched/traced enough or miss smth...but I had an impression that the players you listed were rather fearless of him than "looked down on him".

Veglia

You are right, didn't look down on him. I'm not sure Djokovic does that either. Deep down in his soul, when you remove all the layers, Djokovic would love to be Federer.

nick

Sends his almost ACE serves with contempt and ease. No one has handled Federer serve better than Nole.

Alpha

Got the crowd behind him by asking for them to cheer for him.

Veglia

Delpo does this too.

Murph

Stops to bend down and tie his shoes.

alex

Use his parents to irritate Fed on and off court
super mind game

Jabali

Yes true!

alex

Today is Oct 5
TP
what is the answer

Tennis Planet

WINNER: VEGLIA.

Veglia
