Well, Federer is 18th on the tour this year in % of points won when returning 1st serves. He's 15th in % of points won against 2nd serves. He's 16th in % of return games won.

And that's with a ground game that is clearly superior to all but a few players.

Of course Fed's ROS is awesome by almost any standard-- but it seems pretty clear that it isn't one of the strongest points of his game.
