you don't see him being 'conservative' when he gets a 2nd srv on his fh, problem is rafa can serve to his bh the entire match, literally.

could fed have even more success? that's arguable.
Sure but I blame his playing style, not his backhand for how he approaches return games. There have been plenty of good / great returners with one handers. Gasquet destroys second serves with his one hander. A couple years ago he was hitting clean winners on Roddick's serves wish I had a video as a good example.
