In a short video on his Instagram account, Patrick Mouratoglou paid tribute to Roger Federer, whom he considers the greatest player of all time on the grass. And even if this year, we will not have the chance to see the Swiss player evolve, Patrick still wanted to make a technical point to understand why Roger’s game is so effective on grass.
« It’s no secret that Roger Federer is the most successful on the grass courts with his 20 titles, including a record 8 titles at Wimbledon. As Wimbledon approaches, although we won’t see Roger compete this year, let’s see why grass is his most winning surface. First, his footwork. This is one of the main factors of its success. Federer is known for floating effortlessly across the turf. He attacks the ball forward and follows his shots at the net. His center of gravity, unlike other players, is always perfectly aligned between his hips, which allows him to be perfectly balanced at all times.
