Exhibitions are by definition not serious competitive matches. No serious tennis analyst cinsiders them to be a reliable indicator of what would happen if the players were to meet in a tournament

If I remember correctly, Federer beat "a first class serve and volleyer" in the Wimbledon quarter finals of 2001, played on fast grass when he was 19 and that player was 29 years old - younger than Federer's current age. I wonder who that player was.
