Roger Federer - In search of competition

Rohit Brijnath writes a wonderful article in The Hindu on the dominance of Roger Federer and constructs an imaginary player with the "best-in-class" shots of the best players .

In a nutshell, the best opponent to Federer should have the Forehand of Lendl,Backhand of Edberg,Serve of Sampras, Return of Agassi, Volley of McEnroe and mental toughness of Conners.

Brilliant piece of writing that has inputs from Nirmal Shekar & Ramesh Krishnan. This article is a treat to tennis fans.


  • Excellent article. Bit surprised how Boom Boom Becker was not in contention for return of serve or the volleys. His return of serve was some times as good as Agassi if not better and was a supreme athlete

  • RK - Agassi is the man for return anyday anywhere.May be volley would have been becker's closest bet.
