Great read --- McEnroe on Roger today:
McEnroe: Federer can be the greatest
By John McEnroe
BBC Sport expert at Wimbledon
Roger Federer has the potential to be the best player who ever lived.
That might sound like a big thing to say, but I see him as having the ability to be that dominant.
Against Alex Bogdanovic on Monday he was never really tested.
It was a tough match-up for Alex and he hardly got himself into the sort of position to make Federer sweat.
Federer is filled with confidence at the moment. He's the reigning champion, he won the Australian Open and everything is going the way he wanted it.
His only shaky point all year was the French Open, but that doesn't change my opinion of him.
He's not up to the same level as Pete Sampras yet in terms of titles won, but he has every shot in the game, plus the power and calmness under pressure to back it up.
He's even inventing shots. That forehand half-volley he hits with power is a phenomenal shot - he makes it look too easy.
Every shot he hits looks easy, to be honest. He doesn't even seem to be trying.
I like all his shots but his forehand is my favourite.
He has so much variety with it. He can whip over it and win points from the baseline, or he can punch through it close to the net.
He has very quick feet, so he can get in position to play the shot he chooses, and his balance is perfect.
He can almost hold the ball on his racquet head because his wrists are so much stronger than the average person's. - use wrist more than average person.
Very few people can hit his kind of shot.
He's my pick to win Wimbledon - of course he is.
Tennis is just fun for him right now.
