Roger Federer: 'There was only 4 percent of serve and volley played at...'

Tennis has been graced by the appearance of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Together these three incredible athletes have dominated the tennis scene. They have been ruling the circuit for two decades. His dominance on and off the courts has been immense.

Reflecting on these legends, we take a closer look at which of these three gems has ruled the winnings in the game. Roger Federer certainly beats his rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic by a good margin. The sum obtained by the Swiss master in guarantees itself is one of the highest among all athletes.

Speaking of the numbers, Federer is worth $ 450 million, followed by Djokovic who has $ 220 million, and in third place is Nadal with $ 200 million. When it comes to the Forbes list, the Swiss ace has dominated the rankings in the top 10 for more than a decade.

In fact, in the year before, he topped the list. Coming into Federer's season, he missed the Australian Open, but played in the French Open. In Paris, he retired before the fourth round match. At the Wimbledon Championship, he lost in the quarterfinals, which was a disappointment.

Moving on to Rafa, he lost in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open. His journey came to an end in the semi-final, which by his standards was not very great. He skipped Wimbledon and the Olympics. Due to injury he has finished his season.

On the other hand, Djokovic has had the season of a lifetime from him, winning the first three Grand Slam events of the season. In doing so, he has equaled the two greats in 20 Grand Slam titles each. He currently competes in the US Open.

We wish him the best for the next matches and for the rest of the season.

Speaking to Shingo and Reid in a visual setting, both of whom are preparing for the Paralympics, Roger Federer had some advice to offer.

Notably, he also revealed a lesser-known fact from this year’s Wimbledon tournament. Roger said, “Yeah, I mean, me personally, I think if you’re obviously struggling to use your defense skills more on the grass court, then I think the best defense is going into offense.

Now, offense obviously means taking more risk and taking into consideration more mistakes. Back in the day, 20 30 years ago, we always said to hit a volley is better than to hit a passing shot. Now with the grass, it changed and made it so much easier to play with the baseline that’s why I saw a statistic before the final there was only 4 percent of serve and volley played at Wimbledon this year which is the lowest it’s ever been in the last 20 years which just shows that you can play better from the baseline,” he added.
