    Very nice article
    I think you could have been slightly more critical of the player's weakness, but maybe that's just personal preference.

    That's true. I might add a couple more points on here when I think of it.

    I was going to write more about Federer's weaknesses, but then I didn't want to be suggesting that anyone could beat him just by attacking him like that.

    Excellent analysis. Cheers. It'd be wonderful if you continued down the ranking to 25 or so.

    All ATP Weakness: The Volleys.

    Put a great volleyer (Edberg, Mac, Rafter) vs anyone on carpet or fast indoor.... The Volleyer wins... Or put a great server, (Pete Sampras, Boris Becker, Goran) with above average volleys, they would still win over anyone today on a fast court.

    You can't beat a vintage Federer by serve and volley attack, he was too quick for that. Today, I think you can stand a chance, as he's not the same Fed as he was.

    Wait, doesn't sampras have a losing record to the likes of Federer/Safin/Hewitt/Roddick, oh and yeah, he lost to all of them on pretty fast courts.
