Most Play The Sport. Few Change The Game
Here’s to Roger Federer’s bold Sneak Attack.
There are two ways to win a game. Either you become completely invincible, or change the game to make every single point come your way. And that’s exactly what Tennis ace Roger Federer did.
At the US Open 2015, Roger Federer devised his own move to thwart opponent attack to get him down and out. Famous for his innovative game-play and surprising moves as it is, the ace sporting genius unveiled a new shot during the course of the Grand Slam. So to impede an opponent's serve, Fedex (as he’s fondly called) runs to the edge of the service line and returns the serve with a half volley. This new tactic has been termed the ‘Sneak Attack By Roger’ also known as SABR.
To explain SABR in clearer terms, when an opponent is all set to hit a second serve, Federer creeps toward him, positioning himself inside the baseline. As the opponent tosses the ball, Federer springs, dashing forward so that he can catch the serve inside the service box. He then hits a soft volley toward the opponent, which isn’t all that dangerous, but by now, Federer is already in the position to go for the kill with his next swing. By this time, Federer is completely cut off the court, which implies he can smash whatever his opponent, who is still behind the baseline, tries to do.
While several from the world of tennis haven’t taken a liking to SABR, it definitely has caused ripples in this sport and has become the prime topic wherever the game is discussed.
So the SABR by Federer is clearly a bold move in itself. It clearly tells you, that when you want the game to go your way, you just don’t play it, but you change the game!
