Roger Federer - Best Points in high definition
YouTube l https://www.youtube.com/

A Fed feast. What Roger did to Nadal in Australian Open final 2017:
"Took away his best stroke inside out FH" by:
1. Eliminating slice BH thereby not giving Nadal set up time.
2. Hitting flat over the ball ob BH and taking it early.
3. Hitting cross court flat BH
4. Mixing flat BH with loopy balls to upset rythem.
5. Eliminated side to side play pattern by hitting agressively on every ball, this kept rallies short and never let Nadal set into a rhythm.
As a result Nadal was forced to hit down the line FH which is spectacular to look at but also prone to errors.

Congrats Novak.. great match, hard fought and well deserved victory !
Roger.. you will still be the greatest Tennis player ever !!

Anju Sharma

Anju Sharma The match was so stressful for the fans! Vanita and I were literally biting our nails and clothes (like Federer's father!) while Rajat was trying to maintain silence in order to send positive vibes! All in all, Federer did make multiple unforced errors and Novak has an uncanny ability to return every ball. But Fed being Fed, he promised to be back next year, which is very sportsmanlike. I also like the fact that Djoko is actually very careful and respectful with Federer.

Shubham Bajpai Federer has a unique and distinct game, and he gives an indication if he is going to win or struggle on a given day.. and I did have that feeling in the first set itself. Of all his strokes, his "forehand" shots were going wide and he was not able to convert break-points.. and giving an inch to Novak means giving the Set.. but a great match, and as you rightly said they both are very sportsmanlike.. can't wait to see him back next year !

Rajat I think in the first set he was really too stiff and served badly... that started a sequence where he always trailed and fought from behind. And as he himself said he was perhaps being too aggressive even when the slower and colder night conditions did not suit his style of play. What I really admire his tenacity of carrying on... I just cannot imagine, forget myself, or for a better comparison any top athlete having the will power that Federer has shown in battling massively built youngsters playing tennis today. For me the debate about GOAT is not centered on numbers but rather on the magical, mystical way that Federer plays. Same can be said of Mike Jordan or others who achieved that state of mind and body.

Vidushi Sharma ^ This is a sentiment that is often repeated whenever Federer loses against anyone. No matter what his opponents do, they never achieve the greatness and love that Federer holds in the hearts of the masses- myself included. It seems to just be the way things are

Who Gets to Play Tennis?

When the Hyde Park Racquet Club opened in the late 1970s, amid the country's short-lived tennis boom, there wasn't another indoor facility in Chicago for 10 miles. The club occupied a section of 47th Street, near the lake, that long served as the boundary between the aging mansions of Kenwood and the greater South Side beyond.

In time for the US Open: As a tennis enthusiast, I have always realized how restrictive the sport is in its current audience-- usually wealthy, white suburban parents and their children. We can only hope measures like this bring shifts in the game!

Roger Federer may have lost Wimbledon final, but he will always have Centre Court's heart

Novak Djokovic enjoys some celebratory grass on Centre Court No, it was the fact that Djokovic had beaten Roger Federer that so upset her. Like about 24,998 of the 25,000 people gathered in the grandest of tennis settings, how she wanted the veteran Swiss to win.

Why Roger is the only one...

Category : Sports

"Federer has long been not so much a favourite as a deity here. His style, his panache, the beauty of his play a decade ago embedded him in Centre Court’s collective consciousness."

The Historical Greatness of Serena Williams

No major sport-with the possible exception of gymnastics or swimming-worships youth like tennis. The best athletes in basketball, soccer, football, and baseball tend to reach their peak in their mid-20s, an age when experience, physical strength, and wisdom converge.

I'm proud of Serena! She has faced relentless criticism for her body type, gender, and race, but I think that it is plausible that she is indeed the greatest american athlete of our time.

Turbo Tennis - Service Strategy

Service Strategy Ron Waite, USPTR The single most important stroke in our wonderful game of tennis is the service!!! The serve is the only stroke in our game where we are allowed two chances to get the shot right. It is the only stroke in our game that is not resulting from an on-coming ball.

So who's betting on Wawrinka to win against Djokovic today? My money is on Djoker.

Vidushi Sharma I need Wawrinka to win! I root for Federer (the opposite of an underdog) unless he loses, in which case I root for the underdog.

Invisible Zeppelins: The Experience of Watching Roger Federer at the U.S. Open

Roger Federer is 33, and even now, he makes tennis look easy. He doesn't sweat much, even when it's hot. He doesn't struggle, even when he's losing. Federer's defeats can sometimes feel strangely meek, for the same reason that his victories can seem foreordained - because he seldom gives the impression that he's fighting.

To all the Federer fans. This is indeed a great tribute to the greatness of Roger. This piece reminds me of the NYT article " Federer as a religious experience".I find it difficult to understand how he will be able to motivate himself to continue after the US Open semi-final loss. Although selfishly I like to see him keep playing and winning.

Roger Federer as Religious Experience - Tennis

Almost anyone who loves tennis and follows the men's tour on television has, over the last few years, had what might be termed Federer Moments. These are times, as you watch the young Swiss play, when the jaw drops and eyes protrude and sounds are made that bring spouses in from other rooms to see if you're O.K.

Foe those Federer fans who missed this piece. Memory sake.

Anju Sharma

Anju Sharma It's okay to have a bad day, to make mistakes, to not win because you are older and are facing another person who has worked hard on his game. Just because another person gets better, you don't become less good. Or less loved.

Hope for Japan, Decades After a Disturbing Loss

On Saturday afternoon at the United States Open, Kei Nishikori will become the first Japanese man to compete in a Grand Slam singles semifinal in 81 years. The man who preceded him, Jiro Satoh, reached five major semifinals, the last one at Wimbledon in 1933, when he was 25.

Nishikori vs. Djokovic right now at the US Open, a timely article from the NY Times. Nishikori leads 6-4, 1-6, 1-1 ... Will we see an upset ... !!

Anju Sharma

Anju Sharma What now??? Cilic or Nishikori? Vote here!
