You can't classify Federer into any one category. If you play him fast, he will match you stroke for stroke until you break down. Play him slow, he'll step in and rip the forehands past you. It's interesting that other than Nadal, all of the guys that give Fed trouble from time to time have very solid two-handers. Safin, Nalbandian, Agassi, Baghdatis, Murray. The two-hander down-the-line is really a perfect shot. Against Federer it is never a winner, but if you hit it well enough, it can open up the court to hit to the other corner. That is also never a winner against Fed...but it gets you closer to winning the point...
