Roger Federer’s serve is consistently accurate and is perhaps the foundation of his success. I think only Pete Sampras and Bjorn Borg before him and Novak Djokovic since have had such precision on serve.
Federer uses and controls spin to create precision with power, which makes it difficult for his opponents to attack his serve or consistently get a good hot on the ball. Federer can serve a bomb down at 130mph, but mostly his serve speeds are in the 115 mph – 120 mph range, which allows for a high percentage.
It is difficult for any plater to beat Federer if his first-serve percentage stays above 60%. On the grass his slice serve is particularly potent wide on the deuce court and down the “T” in the advantage court. He also has an accurate second serve and throws the occasional kick serve
