Subject: Baghdatis doesn't think Federer is the greatest talent in tennis
"I'm not saying Roger cannot do it because he's one of the best talents
in this game"

...but continues "and maybe the smartest one". So it seems that
Baghdatis thinks Federer is not most talented but has his smart game to
thank for his success.

Federer was actually Baghdatis's idol when growing up. He even copied
Federer's mannerisms.

When he was young, as part of the pre-service focusing ritual, Federer
used to do a little dribbling of the ball between his legs. Baghdatis
used to do the exact same thing when I last saw him, probably still
does that.

You misunderstood what he said if you think that. Essentially he is saying
that Federer can't be discounted from regaining it as he is one of the best
talents in the game.
