What best defines Federer overall...

The image that comes to your mind...

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Re: What best defines Federer overall...

Another thread for the worshippers , but I 'm half guilty myself.

I voted other: He PLAYS tennis, he doesn't shout it, run it or fight it.

Sorry I couldn't help, but IMO Fed is multi-dimensional enough to talk about these abilities... and it's still more interesting than J. Melzer's alledged boyfriend !!

I was just saying that to Pushkin in a PM, his footwork is fantastic, but I had only ten possible choices !!

Re: What best defines Federer overall...

yea...his movement is the best on tour, I think everyone would agree on that's what seperates him from the rest of the pack.
