    Very nice! I like the way you made it for us lefties. How did you do that? I would like to do that for all of his strokes.

    Thanks.

    Did Fed change his serve? In this pic it looks different, he lifts his front foot up and his legs look closer together:

    It might be a video of him from a few years ago

    I think it could be the other way round. 'Cos if you look at the first sentence in the article it says "Roger Federer has all the weapons to become a Grand Slam champion" Must be before he won his first slam

    I believe these are just practice clips.. maybe he's "just warming up" or "going through the motions".

    Not full service routine.

    federer changed his serve in 2004, so the one from that magazine is his old one and the gif file is his new, current serve.

    Federer always lifts his left foot up when he serves.

    Only slightly , watch this video, it's no way near as much as the serve in the magazine.
