The Federer Phenomenon and His Secret Weapon
The momentous five-setter in a historic Wimbledon 2009 final, eventually ended when Federer broke Roddick’s serve for the first time all day (he himself was broken in the fourth set), with Roddick missing on a forehand. Federer had a total of 107 winners and 38 unforced errors (which is a W/E factor of 107/38=2.8). Roddick, on the other hand, had 74 winners and 33 unforced errors (a W/E factor of 2.2). Hence, the real difference in these statistics is the incredible number of Federer’s winners. How does he make so many winners?
