    Federer fans thread; Federer will get #18!

    What did I say... Hitting on the rise will get him to multiple slams. That's been the biggest reason, even on his peak, for his success: Hitting on the rise and taking time away from opponents and hence dominating rallies and eventually approaching the net. Between 2010-2016 he hit way less on...

    If you think you can, should you hit on the rise on every ball?

    I used to swing 370g/375SW racquet and with it hitting on the rise was nothing. I might just have on tape one topspin half volley from the baseline. I'll see if I can find it.

    higher percentage shot - BH topspin or BH slice?

    Yea I think my earlier troubles with volleys were related to the fact that I've never used drive slice, but use the chop slice a lot. Then I think I chopped the volleys too much.

    If you think you can, should you hit on the rise on every ball?

    Okay, as I've also previously posted here I have sort of a strategic dilemma as to what exactly do on match court. I feel I can hit the ball better than my opponents but the matches are still often tight or I can even lose them. I think in general this is due to my lack of real strategy on...

    higher percentage shot - BH topspin or BH slice?

    Yea but in general you gotta be forced to more extreme defense on FH than the BH to slice it. Is open stance the reason for that?

    higher percentage shot - BH topspin or BH slice?

    Opinions, why players actually tend to hit slice in extreme defensive situations on BH but not on FH? Is it simply because (outside of Williams sisters) on BH players close the stance whereas on FH the modern player hits open stance with more reach when stretched, i.e no need for FH slice?

    higher percentage shot - BH topspin or BH slice?

    Definitely slice. Why else would players tend to slice the BH in extreme defensive situations? And as for modern "chop" vs. classical drive slice, why would anybody purposedly give an easier ball for opponent? Chop slice is still safer than a topspin. I hit probably like 60-80% of my BHs as...

    Nishikori remembers his 1st title at 2008 Delray Beach

    I think the fact that he's 3-5" shorter than top guys forces him to do more on court on average. That causes the injuries in the long run.

    Nishikori remembers his 1st title at 2008 Delray Beach

    Of Nishikori, I remember his on-court interview after he beat Raonic in a Tokyo final stating that we will have many more of these (Nishikori-Raonic finals). LOL, didn't and won't happen. :D

    Is ball anticipation Federer's biggest strength?

    I created thread for facts about this: https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/which-players-could-win-more-than-50-of-baseline-points-vs-2004-2007-federer.611359/

    Which players could win more than 50% of baseline points vs. 2004-2007 Federer?

    Yes, which players could win more than 50% of baseline points vs. 2004-2007 Federer? As we know, I think during his peak Federer didn't win any more average percentage of points than he does now? And obviously, he won majority of points at net and got a ton of service winners. From the baseline...
