    What makes Federer so good?

    Also, he conserves energy for later parts of matches/tournaments by playing with ease, more ease then most, or all.

    Federer, and Tough Pros Rackets

    Wow those are some slooooowww motion vidoes. Cool, fell alseep on the Roddick one. It looks like Roddick is not able to keep his nose/face/eyes locked longer on the ball due to having his elbow closer to his body then Federer. Try it youself, it just feels more free when the elbow is that far...

    What is the weakness of Federer.

    I know exactly what you mean when you speak of this 'trembling.' Wouldn't it have been present at all the other major points in his carrier so far? Or is it that it only escalades to this level now? OT: Anyone know more about this? Books, articles or something? Technique is all good, but...

    Is Rafter Using The Ebh Or Continental Grip In This Video?

    It looks like all the pro's in that article use continental grip. This doesn't match with what I have been tough, especially Sampras nad Rafter.

    What's the heaviest ball to hit, flat, spin or some of both?

    The way mentioned players hit, and any player for that matter, depends mostly on waht they're comfortable with. Grip, overall technique and style dictate what kind of shot will feel best. They all can variate the amount of spin and again perhaps some find that easier then others, but they still...

    Flat hitters

    What is considered a flat shot at that level? Do they really hit it completely spinless or is that it just has a flat trajectory with spin? I'm sure grips don't play a huge role here. It's possible to hit decent spin with eastern forehand for example, just not that easy.

    Pro's shots powerful because of leaded racket?

    It comes down to telling yourself to hit hard. Take a foam ball and throw it at a wall(chugging it at an open closet with clothing in it is even better). How do you throw it as fast as you can? You just go for it. Sure if you know that transferring your weight from from load position to the...

    Would you recommend these books?

    True the idea is simple and it could have taken less to explain it. I found the book useful notheless. Having several books is really the best way to go. Exclude what you don't need and use the rest. ;)
