Roger Federer is one of the best at deuce on his serve, check here why!

Roger Federer is the player on tour who varies the best all kind of net Approaches (serve & volley, 1-2 punch approach, baseline approach & return volley). In total, 22% of his points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this is above the average of the ATP players. Besides being good charging the net, Roger Federer has one of the best hand at the net. His points/errors ratio with this shot is exceptional!

Offensive / High

Roger Federer is really effective with the Punching forehand in every direction and at any moment in the rallies. The forehand technique is as superb as efficient. Nonetheless, this is on his first forehand after the serve that he gets most of his points. His favorite offensive game plan is the 1-2 punch approach. 

Puncher / High

Roger Federer is not only a fantastic offensive player, he can also be an excellent Retriever when he has to. His defensive game style is better than average, he can counterpunch effectively too. As said previously, this is mainly with the backhand that Roger Federer Retrieves the most and is very consistent. The backhand can be played with slice too which is regarded as a Retrieving shot too.

Retriever / Medium

Roger Federer has one of the most effective serve on the ATP tour. Accurate & powerful, this shot gives him free point on a regular basis but allows him to attack right after it as well. Roger Federer would have never achieved all he has done without such an effective weapon!

Server / High

Roger Federer plays close to the baseline with pace. However, we can't say that he is a real Tempo player. The forehand is more played in a Punch/Tempo way which means that he hits that shot with topspin close to the baseline. The backhand can be played in two different ways: Retrieving / Tempo or Punch. The Retrieving / Tempo backhand is the one he plays very close to the baseline with pace and most of the time cross. His goal with that shot is to be consistent. But sometimes, he also likes to take risks with the backhand down the line and he plays that shot with Punch. 

Tempo / Medium
