Roger Federer's forehand is pure technical perfection. A combination of unrivaled racket head preparation, circular fluidity, dynamic racket head speed and graceful precision, Federer's forehand is the staple of the Swiss maestro's game.
Federer's forehand is potent from any position on the court. Possessing the ability to methodically cut up the court, Federer seeks to endlessly dictate rallies with his forehand. At times, it feels like the Swiss has his opponents on a string.
The world No. 2 often leans into his forehand, integrating supreme racket head acceleration and stable head and body control to push his opponents into defensive positions. These qualities provide Federer ample opportunity to quickly close out points.
Federer Forehand Compilation
Federer prefers to step inside the court and take his forehand early, thereby creating an offensive minded stance. Such early ball contact allows him to concoct extremely acute angles with his forehand.
Federer is one of the dwindling number of pros still to use an eastern forehand grip which allows him to take the ball on earlier and provides and easier range of motion when flattening his shots out.
The one aspect of Federer's forehand that is fully evident in the rest of his game is its pure effortlessness and fluid nature. Given that Federer has never retired from a single match throughout the duration of his career, it is clear that this level of balance and comfort is ideal for any tennis player.
Federer's forehand is undoubtedly one of the greatest of all time and will continue to dazzle crowds until the Swiss hangs up his rackets for good.
