Federer's tactics
Roger Federer serves
His serve is not the biggest in the game but it is incredibly accurate and consistent. His first serve percentage across the season is usually between 65-70%.

He can serve wide, body and line with equal ease and he uses the accuracy to set himself up for his second shot. He can also serve-volley but uses this surprisingly little.

With so many shots in his armoury, Federer is one of the tennis greats and once he wins the French Open he may claim to be the greatest ever.
