Bad News: So close to that elusive 2nd Grand Slam title. And it was at Wimbledon, where I know how much he wants to win. He had a few chances to put Federer away, but could not convert. I actually almost cried at the end. I really thought he had a chance to win it, and now I am afraid that perhaps he will never win another Grand Slam. I think he got a little lucky in that Nadal did not play in this tournament, and that he did not have to go through #1 and #2.
Good News: He looks better than ever. He almost took out the #1 player in the world right now, holder of 15 Grand Slam titles. He came all the way back from almost obscurity to playing in the Wimbledon final, where he genuinely had a chance to win. His backhand is much improved. His fitness and quickness is better. He looks like he's got his head together. Plus there's always next year, right?
