Federer was well on his way to best all court player by far until the poly interruption turned the game into a bend it like Beckham arc fest.

in every video game hes an all court player. But in reality he can be if he wants but most of the time he finds the baseline most comfortable.

If he ever wants to get back to number one and winning slams, he'll have to go back to being an all-court player. He can't just win from the baseline now.

Agreed. Nadal, Djokovic, Berdych, Soderling, Davydenko, Del Potro, and some others are all superior to him from the baseline now.

Carrying on from another thread. I vote no, what do you think?

Every player is an all-court player.

True, but only on the right day. Some of these players are inconsistent and Federer would easily outplay them from the baseline on a certain day.

now that I think of it>>> he is a "Forehand Player", since *most* of his shots are FH's. Thanks for the insight. :roll:
Naturally.The only good thing Roger was ever capable of doing in life was that forehand of his-you know,gets a few winners of it every now and then.But otherwise he dosen't hold a candle to X,Y,Z of the past who could possibly hit winners while doing cartwheels all over the court against today's veeeerrrrry weak opponents(clowns as some call them).

And note-that while judging Roger it is veeerrrry important to only look at his RECENT years.Those are the ones that'll tell you all you need to know while the Herculean heroes of the former generations have to be looked at very objectively and the phases of their careers have to be studied thoroughly before coming to a conclusion.

He only actually plays in half of the court. :)

No. At least not now. Him having the ability to hit all the shots in the book does not equate to him being an all court player. He was at 2001 wimbledon and early during his career. Now with guys like Nadal, Djokovic, Del Potro, Soderling...volleying seems like a bad idea and he doesn't volley half as much as he used to.

I called it, this thread doesn't look like a fail thread now. Federer is definatley a baseliner, he couldn't change it up against Berdych because his nets skills aren't great.


Fed's net skills are better than you think...
