Dan’s Press Conference Question To Roger Federer

Dan has asked Roger Federer many questions over the years at pro tennis press conferences, provoking responses that have run the gamut to warm to cool, but his question after the Medvedev match at Miami Open was one of the best responses he's ever collected. Q. You used that chip forehand slice approach a number of times today, and the backhand seemed to have a tough time. These guys who are 6'4", 6'5" and taller, do you find you personally are using those chip and slice shots more to give them trouble? Continue to read full article...

Does Federer Subconsciously Duck Rafa and Djokovic?

By Scoop Malinowski Ducking happens in one on one sports, it happens in pro boxing and it happens in tennis, perhaps even at the highest level. After Federer lost to John Millman this week, I made a comment on a Facebook post about the match suggesting that maybe Federer subconsciously tanked to Millman to avoid having to face Djokovic in the next round.

Federer Mindset Strong Entering 19th US Open

By Scoop Malinowski Roger Federer has not felt the joy of winning the US Open since 2008 when he defeated Andy Murray 62 75 62. That was ten years ago. Since then there have been several close calls but they all fell short. 2009 loss to Del Potro in the final. 2014 loss to eventual champion Cilic. Two semi losses with match points to Djokovic.

FedererI'm still digesting Fed's switch to Uniqlo. Now, on a purely financial basis, the switch from Nike to Uniqlo was a no-brainer. Federer was reportedly making $10 million a year with Nike and now $23 million for the next ten years with Uniqlo. Eagle-eyed observers spotted that although he had a Uniqlo headband, t-shirt, tracksuit top, shorts and socks, Federer was still wearing Nike tennis shoes, with the London skyline stitched in gold and the number 8 - representing his eight Wimbledon titles.

Federer says he’s better now than ten years ago

(Note: This article was orignally posted in April 2017.) I asked Juan Martin Del Potro at the 2017 Miami Open if he feels Roger Federer could be playing his finest tennis this year and the intelligent Argentine hardly objected to that notion. The next day at the Miami Open press conference, Pete Bodo followed up on that story angle by asking Federer himself if it is possible that he actually is playing his best tennis now at age 35?

RFEDERER By Scoop Malinowski This week Nick Kyrgios graciously answered tennis fans questions on Twitter including one particular seemingly harmless query: "What's the toughest part of playing Fed?"
