That says far more about his ballstriking ability compared to federer than some occasional shanking.
They both have been equally impressive in their best matches.
Federer more so on the fh...nalbandian on the bh. But fed has the variety with the slice.
I SAID HITTING THE BALL WITH THE CENTER OF YOUR RACQUET
Missing the court doesn't mean you can't strike the ball. Hantuchova is one of the cleanest strikers of the ball and she routinely makes over 50 UEs.
Berdych for example is also a better striker of the ball than Federer. He also makes lots of errors. Agassi. Safin. Baghdatis. Davydenko. THOSE guy strike the ball cleanly. Not Federer. Him and Nadal don't hit the ball that cleanly at all.
