yeah, great point. Federer sprinted to reach a good volley of Zib on the other side of the court and when it almost looked like it would have rebounded two times Fed with a really great feeling touch made an amazing crosscourt winner, Zib looked shocked.
I tried following his post match on court interview on the live stream since I understand a bit of German but Swiss German is just beyond me especially Basel Deutsch
I couldn't understand everything as well and I don't remember Rogers words good enough to translate them now. Maybe the interview with Heinz Günthardt will be on Youtube later on and I can try to translate - or we just have to wait for our Swiss MTF members who can help us out with Rogers exact words
Wow that ankle he injured in the Madrid final must be really bad
He's dropped 3 games in 4 sets since that.
He considered withdrawing because of his poor form..........you know, his ankle............but the atp said 'hell no. Ankle doesn't = poor form.' He needed to lose a couple of matches to use that excuse

A stop volley is like a drop shot except that you take it out of the air without letting it bounce- hence the "volley" part- and you hit it gently in such a way that it trickles over the net and bounces pretty low- hence the "stop" part
