Roger Federer faced a heartbreaking loss in the recent Wimbledon final at the hands of a fantastic Novak Djokovic that saved 2 championship points and the last one in a spectacular fashion.
A fascinating video is circulating on the web comparing that championship point with the one that the Swiss converted when he won the Championships back in 2012. Roger Federer played both points in the exact same way, but while Andy Murray missed the passing shot, Novak Djokovic made his mark.
Watching both videos closely, it’s clear that Roger was a fraction less aggressive against Djokovic and the world no.1 didn’t miss the chance. In 2012, the Brit had to cope with a deeper and faster shot whose speed was also “accelerated” by a more rapid grass.
The life of a tennis champion can be defined by centimeters: sliding doors.
