did you see those slices? those slices were vintage federer. they kept djokovic at bay and unable to dominate the rally. also, that forehand from djokovic right before federer's winner wasn't an easy shot to return let alone change the direction of and go down the line.

aside from the slices, it wasn't federer's most exceptional backhand display, he's hit far more impressive winners, but his abillity to keep up with djokovic on that wing was crucial for the match.
