Today was sort of the right time to do them, but, you know, I'm happy I got to learn how to use it over the years. I used to not be a fan of the dropshot at all. I always thought it was a shot you only hit when you're panicking from the baseline, when you're scared maybe to take on the fight, you know.
it's good to hear such comments from federer... i really hope that he doesn't stop at trying anything ... (next up... bigger rackets... double handed play...?) reminds me of an anime i watched (initial d) that teaches a good lesson about a battle -- if you believe only in winning beautifully... you will only constraint yourself in a cocoon and your growth will be restricted by it... in a battle... winning is all that counts. so i hope federer will try anything and everything... as long as it's not against any rules...!

I agree, but I hope to god Roger never even thinks about double-hander. There is just such a classical elegance to the single-hander. If Roger switched(which is 99.9999% unlikely) that would be the death of that shot.

Yeah, I'd slap him for the comment, too.

Mirka, how about suggesting you go shopping during the FO final, and see how much he likes that.

well,actly i dont,.. coz if that happens , i most likely won't cheer him no more,..coz If he played ugly as murray or rafa? i wouldn't watch him in the first place... IT's the beauty he brings into game.. i would rather see him loses every match playing like an artist than win like andy murray..

Try finding the word 'Brilliant' in dictionary,and you'll find the picture of Roger Federer next to it.

That would be the end of tennis. Although roger's BH for me is not as good as Gaudio's but its a key feature of why i love roger. I wish all players had the one handed BH, only one i like is Marat's

My great tennis loves-Roger Federer, Paul Henry Mathieu and Marat Safin

Grigor Dimitrov & David Goffin - The future of tennis

Allez - Jerzy Janowicz, Jose Acasuso , Lleyton, Djokovic, Nalbandian, Clement, Nicolas Almagro, Stanislas Wawrinka

Ai Se Eu Te Pego - Michel Telo

well beauty is in the eyes of the beholder... to me having every single shot in the game and execute them to the perfection... and the ability to change styles and adapt to different players is beauty...

well i knew someone would make such comments! i'm not saying roger to change to playing two-handed 100% of the time... but once in a while perhaps in 1-2% of his shots he can suddenly execute a two-handed backend shot to surprise the opponent and break his rhthym -- at the same time put extra power into that shot... it'll be amazing if someone can be that versatile!

Re: Roger news and articles

Fed himself has said he'd rather win ugly than lose beautifully as it were.

tbh i've never found his game ugly, whatever style he plays he seems to make it look beautiful, I bet if he attempted a nadalesque moonball-fest it would still look pretty attractive
