Categories where Federer is not among the very best?

Categories = forehand, serve, footwork, etc.

backhand I would say (watch the 2004 RG 3rd round, there's someone better than him in this category!)

Guga Kuerten

Roger Federer & Novak Djokovic

Hi Slut (I feel so bad to write that...), but do you mean roddick's forehand is harder than Federer's? Federer's is the most versatile I think -- and tremendous disguise. roddick's FH is hard, but nothing else

Re: Categories where Federer is not among the very best?

I would say dropshot.

serve - Roddick
forehand - Federer
backhand - Safin
volleying - Henman
dropshot - Coria
return - Agassi
play in gusty wind - Federer
smash to the stands - Federer
double faults - Hewitt
tirade - Safin

Don't be ashamed... I'm not!

I really think Roddick's forehand can be the best shot in tennis at times. He's just inconsistent with it. Roger has more variety, but power will always win... eventually.

Federer's forehand is definitely better than Roddick's.

Out of the volley department, the forehand volleys are probably the weaker of the two, but overall Federer is among the best in volleying.

Re: Categories where Federer is not among the very best?

i dont think the question is asking "what is roger not the best at" but rather "what category of tennis would you not mention roger as one of the best." clearly no one can be the best at everything, especially in mens tennis.
i think there are several better backhands on tour.
he may not be at the top of the chip and charge game.

Maybe Roger can win Roland Garros.......
