|Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee!|
He floats around the court like a butterfly and stings like a bee. Sound familiar to anyone? Call me crazy but I think Fed's unsurpassed timing, footwork, and power translates perfectly to boxing. He could bob and weave (drop shot), sticking his jab (backhand) while flooring his opponent with a powerful right hook (forehand). I am quite sure, however, that Fed wants no part of busting up that pretty little face of his.
If not playing tennis, clearly he would be playing seeker for the British national quidditch team. We here at Tennis Maven kid .... because we love. But seriously, do we see this guy playing any other sport than table tennis. His game is full of funk, junk (aka old man tennis), slices, spins, etc. This is perfect for schooling this competitors in table tennis. Plus, no one cares when you whine, complain, and berate yourself in table tennis.
The human gumby machine. He twists, slides, and contorts his body in ways that are inhuman at times. His will to win is beyond reproach. And his ability to perform under earth rattling pressure is legendary (check out his forehand service return winner on match point if you don't believe me). This author says here that the Djoker would have been a gold medal winning gymnast. It doesn't fit with his macho reputation and attitude, but I guarantee you he doesn't care a lick about that. The Djoker is all about winning.
