Roger Federer learned one key skill which makes him better than everyone else - Fleming

ROGER FEDERER learned a key aspect about the speed of his serve early in his career which has put him ahead of everyone else.

Those are the thoughts of Sky Sports pundit and former American tennis star Peter Fleming.

Roger Federer yesterday returned to world No 1, over five years since he last held that accolade.

The Swiss legend beat Robin Haase in the quarter-final of the Rotterdam Open to topple old rival Rafael Nadal at the top of the rankings.

Fleming was commentating on today’s semi-final between David Goffin and Grigor Dimitrov.

He and co-commentator Mark Petchey were discussing Dimitrov’s serve and how he can improve it.

And Fleming brought Federer into the argument, revealing how the 36-year-old has got the best out of his serve over the years.

“Roger learned very early, at least in the first year or two of being a pro, that 120mph hit accurately is plenty powerful enough,” Fleming said.

“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 will play Dimitrov in the final in Rotterdam if he beats Andreas Seppi in his semi-final tonight (6.30pm).
