Djoker doesn't drop the racquet head on the backswing because his grip is western. Swinging straight through the ball will give him plenty of spin. SO many players with western and deep semi-western grips want to do the Federer forehand, and end up framing the ball. Don't ask me about how Nadal does it. His shots make no sense to me. Djoker is a better modern player to emulate, because his strokes are so stable, and their mechanics are obvious. He's like the Obi Wan Kenobi of tennis. Master of the fundamentals. Nadal is too weird, and Federer's is just too difficult for people with normal/high (but not insane) hand eye coordination. It's kind of funny, because Federer LOOKS like his strokes are so fundamental, but his forehand is SO difficult to pull off.

One thing you may have missed on the take back is his leading with the right elbow which is like a bump instead of looping like many of the wta players do. This keeps the racquet to his right side instead of getting it behind him on his left. He has the same racquet angle as Fed on his take back. Good video!
