“I know you can easily get sucked into that [attritional] mode when you don’t want to attack but, if you can’t volley, you are not going to the net,” #Federer said the morning after his #Wimbledon victory. “Almost every player I played here wouldn’t serve and volley. It’s frightening to me, to see that at this level.”
“I look at the stats and, whatever round it is, I see that the guy I’m going to face is playing 2 percent of serve and volley throughout the championship. I’m going, OK, I know he’s not going to serve and volley – which is great for me. And the grass was playing fast this week. I wish that we would see more coaches, more players taking chances up at the net, because good things do happen there,” Federer said.
