Hey guys, all quiet on the Federer front with his decision to skip this years Montreal Masters but I do have 2 things to share. The first is the latest video in Conal's ‘Best Points of' of series and this times it's 2009.
2009 is probably one of the best years on tour for Fed fans – heartbreaker in Melbourne, racquet smash in Miami, finger wag in Madrid, win the French, clinch Wimbledon in five sets and then just miss out winning a sixth US Open.
Kind of weird to think that had Fed won just a few more points in the two losing slam finals then he'd have won all 4 in a year; Nadal was looking fatigued but Fed let him back in and he should have gone up 2 sets on Del Potro. All ifs and buts mind with no guarantees if he won in Aus he'd capture the French but you can't get much closer.
One thing is for certain though and that's the sheer number of quality of points played which you can check out below (some you'll no doubt be asking why aren't they included like against Haas etc. but the video wouldn't get through without content claims if they were in there unfortunately)
