Upon winning the French Open and completing the career Grand Slam, Federer became the first individual male tennis player to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated since Andre Agassi in Federer's versatility has been described by Jimmy Connors as: An elite athlete, Federer is an all-court, all-around player known for his speed, fluid style of play, and exceptional shot making.

Federer mainly plays from the baseline but is also comfortable at the net, being one of the best volleyers in the game. David Foster Wallace compared the brute force of Federer's forehand motion with that of "a great liquid whip", [] while John McEnroe has referred to Federer's forehand as "the greatest shot in our sport.

Federer plays with a single-handed backhand, which gives him great variety. He employs the slice , occasionally using it to lure his opponent to the net and deliver a passing shot.

Federer can also fire topspin winners and possesses a 'flick' backhand with which he can generate pace with his wrist; this is usually used to pass the opponent at the net.

He is often able to produce big serves on key points during a match. Later in his career, Federer added the drop shot to his arsenal and can perform a well-disguised one off both wings.

He sometimes uses a between-the-legs shot, which is colloquially referred to as a " tweener " or "hotdog". His most notable use of the tweener was in the semifinals of the US Open against Novak Djokovic , bringing him triple match point.

The SABR is a unique shot that Federer owns, in the way that he manages to add enough power and placement into the shot, which makes it very difficult, or close to impossible for the opponent to reach it.

The bigger racket has enabled easier serving and better defense on both wings with fewer shanks. However this has diminished his forehand, slice backhand and dropshot.

Federer is also noted for his cool demeanour and emotional control on the court. In contrast to his early career, most of his professional game has been characterised by lack of outbursts or emotional frustration at errors, which gives him an advantage over less controlled opponents.

I don't get the anxiety during a match so much anymore. You know, to throw racquets, to toss balls out of the court, scream and stuff.

I almost laugh [on the inside] about it a little bit today when an opponent does it. But that's something for me that's not a problem any more.
