A former top 10 player reveals why Roger Federer is better than the rest

Peter Fleming, a former top 10 player and now Sky Sports pundit, commented on what makes Roger Federer a better player than his rivals. According to Fleming, the key is his serve. 'Roger learned very early, at least in the first year or two of being a pro, that 120mph hit accurately is plenty powerful enough', said Fleming, who achieved a career-high ranking at No.

8 in singles in 1980. 'So many players come out thinking they have to hit 130, 140, otherwise they’re going to lose the advantage. And by contorting their body to try and get that extra power, they lose accuracy.' Federer has been very efficient on serve, playing a smart tennis and finding all the angles.

'Without back issues, I can work on this shot', he recently said. ALSO READ: Andre Agassi, Novak Djokovic congratulate Roger Federer! .
