This highlight reel is one of the main culprits of Federer Backhand Inflation. His backhand is not as good as this one week of competition would have us believe. It is a good backhand, it has served him well, and he defends it better than most; however it is hardly a great single handed backhand.

Guys like Gasquet, Almagro, Haas, and Wawrinka pay their bills with their backhand, rather than in spite of it.
