In case the last month and a half hasn't already proven it, Fed's healthy again:
"I'm not scared any more of going into the very corner of the court and digging out a ball, which I was scared of doing at times. And that's why my serve sometimes faltered in important moments, because I didn't have belief that my body was holding up.
"So I would play way too offensive, and against the top guys, that was too risky, and this is why I would lose."
It was only at the end of April, at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia in Rome, when Federer began to feel "like the old guy again."
It has had a big effect on his game: "Now I feel so much better, and I can play the way I normally play -- use offense, use defense. My serve is clicking. I know in the important moments I'll make the right decisions."
Get healthy, Rafa. We need a stretch of "no excuses" mano e mano competition.
