His forehand is only accurate when he has time to prepare it imo. On such a fast surface, he's too serve dependent as he doesn't have the time to prepare his groundstrokes.
Even against Federer, winning only 17% of points on his second serve is too poor. It didn't make any difference whether Federer put the first or second serve...
I hope Milos improves his groundgame and return soon. He will definitely be beating Federer if he does; Federer can't get a read on his serve, it seems. But it's no use since Milos can't do anything on return so far.
