I'm not saying Federer is as good as he was because he has lost so much footspeed, just that his strokes are working absolutely beautifully like they used to. I am 100% confident Murray and Djoker won't be able to break his backhand down for example.
I always noticed Federer using the squash shot most of the time, I really noticed it because I love big running forehands a la Sampras and Becker (and now Nadal), to me it seemed like it was the usual percentage of squash shots on the run against Tsonga but maybe you're right.
His backhand and return were pretty good. But he was not hitting his forehand well.
