Roger As A Player

Roger Federer tennis is known for a fierce forehand and being adaptable to any situation as Jimmy Conors stated “In an era of specialists, you’re either a clay court specialist, a grass court specialist, or a hard court specialist… or you’re Roger Federer.” This is partly what makes the Roger Federer bio so impressive.

This adaptability also allows Roger Federer to find cracks of weaknesses in his opponents defense and then exploit them with the right shots. This dicey and subtle way of playing may have made it difficult for him in his younger years but once mastered it has made him a nightmare to defeat.
