It's not average. His BH has always been pretty good. Of course age probably has something to do with it getting slightly worse. In his prime people said his BH was his weakness because going to his FH was a death wish. It is only truly exposed by Nadal's topspin, and the high bouncing courts of today. Put Federer on the court in Cincy or the WTF and his BH's fine.
