    Don't know if this has been posted before, but this 29 minute video was just ridiculous and probably the best representation of his repertoire that I've seen.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQyoegvOah0

    Watching some of these backhand shots, you'd think how dare anyone ever criticize his backhand side?

    #1 to me is the best shot I've ever seen out of anybody

    Those who question Federer's variety should watch that.

    Unfortunately it's already been taken down.
    What shot was number 1?

    I think his best shot ever was the lob against Agassi in Dubai 2005.

    I only just managed to see it. I hate that they're taking down these videos.

    #1 - Smash off a smash against Roddick
    #2 - That lob versus Agassi

    I would swap #1 with #2 and #3 would be the Nole tweener.

    I believe it was a backhand return that landed in the court against the Nadal serve.

    ATP is really acting in a self-destructive way in doing this. If they want to promote the sport they would do better to employ people to make better highlight videos, not waste money on paying people to remove the only highlight videos that are available.

    Someone should write Roger and ask him to speak with the ATP bean counters about this.

    Nathaniel, are they still stopping you from producing your great highlight reels?

    I think it would be boring for me to watch since I have seen almost every Federer highlight reel on youtube.

    Well I've been too busy to make so many but the ones I did make.. at least half were removed (of substantial highlights).

    Couldn't find a hot shot clip of the FH CC topspin drop shot in the USO'04 final vs Hewitt but that shot was extraordinary. It's at about 2:20 on the match highlight piece BBC compiled with Mercer and Jo Durie commenting.

    Thanks for posting.

    The others were taken down quickly, why would the ATP take a free pass on advertising? Clowns.

    I'm glad the dropshot against Murray in Wimbledon is that high. That was amazing. Incredible footwork.


    Nice compilation. Fed's BH on low bouncing surfaces = highlight reel

    agree ..

    2nd would probably be the smash lob vs Roddick in Basel 2002 ..

    Thanks for the video op. People that say Federer's backhand is weak need to look at this video. So many incredible backhand winners. It might not be the most reliable shot in the world compared to a 2HBH, but his shotmaking ability on that wing is just amazing.
