He surpassed sports legends like, 2. Federer's versatility has been described by Jimmy Connors : "In an era of specialists, you're either a clay court specialist, a grass court specialist, or a hard court specialist He's the new generation.
He was comparable to Marcelo Rios , very talented, he has great hands, but the difference was Roger had the big serve, big return. He could make winners out of anything basically.
And even out of defense. And Roger is just one of a kind. An elite athlete, Federer is an all-court, all-around player known for his speed, fluid style of play, and exceptional shot making.
Federer mainly plays from the baseline but is also comfortable at the net, being one of the best volleyers in the game.
David Foster Wallace compared the brute force of Federer's forehand motion with that of "a great liquid whip",  while John McEnroe has referred to Federer's forehand as "the greatest shot in our sport.
He also has great variety with his forehand, able to hit with topspin or pace or both , thus opening up the court and going in to the forecourt for aggressive volleys.
Federer plays with a single-handed backhand, which gives him great variety. He employs the slice , occasionally using it to lure his opponent to the net and deliver a passing shot.
Federer can also fire topspin winners and possesses a 'flick' backhand with which he can generate pace with his wrist; this is usually used to pass the opponent at the net.
His serve is difficult to read because he always uses a similar ball toss, regardless of what type of serve he is going to hit and where he aims to hit it, and turns his back to his opponents during his motion.
He is often able to produce big serves on key points during a match. Later in his career, Federer added the drop shot to his arsenal and can perform a well-disguised one off both wings.
He sometimes uses a between-the-legs shot, which is colloquially referred to as a " tweener " or "hotdog". His most notable use of the tweener was in the semifinals of the US Open against Novak Djokovic , bringing him triple match point.
Since Stefan Edberg joined his coaching team at the start of the season, Federer has played a more offensive game, attacking the net more often, and improved his volley shots.
The SABR is a unique shot that Federer owns, in the way that he manages to add enough power and placement into the shot, which makes it very difficult, or close to impossible for the opponent to reach it.
The bigger racket has enabled easier serving and better defense on both wings with fewer shanks. However this has diminished control and power on his forehand, slice backhand and dropshot.
Federer is also noted for his cool demeanour and emotional control on the court. In contrast to his early career, most of his professional game has been characterised by lack of outbursts or emotional frustration at errors, which gives him an advantage over less controlled opponents.
I don't get the anxiety during a match so much anymore. You know, to throw racquets, to toss balls out of the court, scream and stuff.
I almost laugh [on the inside] about it a little bit today when an opponent does it. But that's something for me that's not a problem any more.

Federer said he found it difficult to develop any rhythm in doubles, because so many points end so quickly, with such a narrow window through which to push shots.
