He does not seem to have a huge swipe upwards??
Racquet head speed.
So if I swing a lot faster I will have topspin like Fed?
No, but you will generate more revolutions on the ball.
His extremely loose wrist
Federer has something you don't have...actually he has at least 10 things you don't have, so stop trying to imitate what he does and play your own game. The laws of physics are the same for everyone, whether or not it looks like he is brushing up much, he is obviously doing it because he DOES get the topspin.
he gets topspin in MANY MANY ways. first of all his set up, big banger alu ROUGH, which gives him spin anyways along with natural gut which is already spin friendly. He is also always in position so always hits the sweetspot and gets max spin/power out of a shot. Mainly, his racket head acceleration is what gives him the spin. go on youtube or google and check out some slow mo vids of federer's forehand, and you'll see how amazingly fast it is, it is literally faster then a 4.0's forehand racket acceleration.
