#0: Play a down-the-line backhand (to a right-hander's forehand). This often forces an opponent to change his attack to a cross-court shot, which goes to your forehand. This is what Federer changed early in his career after he lost to Hewitt and Agassi a few times.

They both had better backhands, so Roger kept playing a cross-court backhand (since, in theory, this is a better way to defend), but he never got out of the cross-court rally. He then learned to play an occasional down-the-line sliced backhand and, in most cases, received a cross-court shot to his forehand, with which he immediately attacked.


Note the relentless play of Hewitt to Federer's backhand and all the different tactics Roger tries to get out of that - changing pace, spin, playing down the line, moving around to play the forehand, etc.
