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...
Safin hit several down the line winners in his last victory over him
