Listen, here is the obvious fact of ********'s backhand problems. 1) He hits it rather flat, with not much clearance 2) He just happens to have the best tennis mind, so he doesn't give up the baseline, like ever. What does this mean? 3) He half volley's half of his backhands. This takes a ridiculous amount of skill. Does noone notice all this Wawrinka Gasquet etc, talk? They all stand way the hell back to prepare their swing - while Fed has less than half of their time. He still manages to have the best ROS slice backhand, best ROS 1 hander, top 3 in dropshots, and great at redirecting pace. BTW uses a ridiculously heavy, small racquet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF1VuJlmPaw Watch that video tell me I am wrong.
