    • Actually Roger’s backhand is his weak point, which is the reason his rivals hit to it, stroke after stroke. Roger is class, though, so the above makes sense.

      • Sorry in the last two years Roger’s backhand is much improved, and this helped him greatly in winning his last three grand slam victories.

      • His backhand may not be the strongest aspect of his game, but it is not “weak” by any objective measure, (only relatively so compared to his all-time great serve and forehand – and drop shot and excellent volleying as well).

        Only Nadal, with his extremely high-topspin, lefty forehand has been able consistently to break down Federer’s backhand (though by slicing less and taking the ball more on he rise in the last couple years, he has negated Nadal’s advantages against him as well in their last 4 head-to-head matches).

  • Does anyone else ever fantasize that SlippedDisc might occasionally fulfill its potential by addressing real MUSICAL concerns instead of sartorial criticism, nationalistic bashing, lurid details of personal deviance, counting the number of females in every ensemble, and every other non-artistic sensationalist irrelevance that can be thrown into a cauldron of negativity?

  • Good ol’ Jean Seller Bach. I’m sure this will net him a nice sum, though one wonders why he’d involve himself in such a racket. Must have taken a while to court him. I do commend him for having the balls to play Bach in public. Love it.

  • He could just as easily have been playing some popular piece. I think it’s a good thing that someone as universally admired and both attractive and accomplished should show he plays classical music for pleasure.
