Recently, Roger Federer posted a video of him practicing his volleys with the help of a wall. This quickly became a viral among tennis fans as a challenge. Andy Roddick had something to say about this challenge which shocked Roger Federer. Check it out.

 

 

Andy Roddick did not mind the challenge. He said he would actually do it but had one problem – volleying. Andy said that he hated volleying which was something Roger Federer should have known already. Roger was as surprised as anyone when he saw this.

How Did Roger Federer React?
Roger Federer laughed at this comment but also expressed his shock. In the post, he asked Roddick why he is only telling him about this now because he had no idea all these years. I am sure many people will be thinking that Roger should have had some idea since he played him 24 times.

So, why does Andy Roddick hate volleying? Maybe it’s because of what happened in the video above. Andy Roddick after volleying twice and hitting an overhead lost the point. This was because of Roger Federer’s brilliant smash of smash that stunned the world.

Jokes aside, Andy Roddick will definitely have a good reason to not like volleying which he has not told yet but that does not mean he can’t do the challenge. And this challenge is the best thing to do right now as many people are stuck in their homes and do not have any tennis to watch due to the suspension of the ATP tour.

The tour is set to return on July 13th which is still a long time away. Roger Federer will use this time to practice his volleying skills along with the rest of the world. When the tour returns, we can expect Roger to use these skills to add another grand slam title to his collection.

In Roger Federer’s words: ‘I know how to beat Lleyton Hewitt and Marat Safin’

Seeking the top-10 spot and the Masters Cup in Shanghai berth at the end of the season, Roger Federer kicked off 2002 with the title in Sydney and fourth round at the Australian Open, lingering on the edge of the elite group.

The young Swiss failed to defend the title in Milan before scoring wins over Yevgeny Kafelnikov and Marat Safin in the Davis Cup in Russia on clay, building momentum but scoring only four wins in Rotterdam, Dubai and Indian Wells.

Returning to Miami following the quarter-final run a year ago, Federer took down Jeff Morrison in the first match before ousting world no. 25 Albert Portas and world no. 6 Tim Henman to repeat the result from 2001. Henman had to retire after the first set and Roger had all the time of this world to prepare for the quarter-final clash with Andrei Pavel, toppling the Romanian 6-1, 6-1 in under an hour after one of his best displays of the season so far.

The Swiss was pleased how he played the match, staying focused from start to finish and dominating on both the serve and return to set the clash against Lleyton Hewitt or Marat Safin, other super talented youngsters born in the early 80s.

Roger Federer

Speaking about the next match, Roger expressed confidence about beating either Lleyton or Marat, feeling great on the court and chasing the spot in the first Masters 1000 final. “I had many excellent matches against Lleyton Hewitt so far.

I played him maybe five times, lost four of those and beat him once. We always had tough matches that lasted three or four sets. I feel I can beat him; I’ve got the game and I know the tactics and strategy of how to play him. On the other hand, I defeated Marat Safin in both encounters we had so far; I feel good ahead of the semi-final.”
