When he won Seventeen.

Federer made it very clear that his British foe would have to max out.
But when there was doubt… the Swiss closed the door.

Federer played without fear, producing his best in fires of crunch time
His shots had form and rhyme…. he got the job done.
When almost thirty-one.

Bag the Pseudo Fed jokes. He reigns full and clear.
In this, his very good year.
