Roger Federer is into the second week of Wimbledon. Federer looks good so far and one thing tennis fans across the globe are commenting on is how much more Roger seems to be slicing his backhand at Wimbledon.

At the 2017 Australian Open Final against Rafael Nadal everyone was impressed with how much Federer was ripping his topspin backhand. Roger was taking more risk on his backhand and hitting more winners and it paid off big time. But now at Wimbledon he is back to slicing off the return and also more content to slice in rallies.
