Roger Federer Playing Style
The Famous World Celebrity Roger Federer is an all-court, all-round player known for his solution style of play and shot creation. Federer mainly plays from the baseline but is also easy at the net being one of the best volleyers in the game today. Federer plays with a single-handed backhand which gives him great variety. He employs the slice, occasionally using it to lure the opponent to the net and pass him. Federer can also fire topspin winners and possesses a 'flick' backhand where he can generate pace with his wrist; this is usually used to pass the opponent at the net. His serve is difficult to read because he tosses the ball in the same spot no matter where he intends to serve it, and turns his back to his opponents during his motion. He is often able to produce big serves on key points during a match. His first serve is typically around 200 km/h (125 mph), however, he is capable of serving at 220 km/h (137 mph).Recently, Federer has also added the drop shot to his game and utilizes a well-disguised one off of both wings. He can also use the between-the-legs shot, as was shown in the semifinals of the 2009 US Open against Novak Djokovic, bringing him match point. Federer later stated in a interview that it was the greatest shot he had ever hit in his life.
