re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread
The difference there though is that Nadal was injured against Soderling and confirmed this by pulling out of Wimbledon a month later. Federer was simply outplayed or bottled it against Tsonga and Berdych. Probably a mix of both.
Fed's best chance for another slam is US Open easily imo. He completely threw away the game against Djokovic last year and is still the first or second best player on that surface depending on how fit Del Potro is.
