As noted tennis journalist @SoBad put it: ZVEREV FAR SUPERIOR TO FEDERER IN EVERY ASPECT OF THE GAME, EVEN DROPSHOT AND LOB. "Serve: Zverev more pace, spin, and variety. Forehand: Zverev more authority. Backhand: Zverev can hit 3 or more topspin backhands in a row. Volleys: Zverev more punch, touch, and feel. Overall, not a very flattering situation for peak player against a fresh-poking youngster."
