The most potent serve I have seen in 25 yrs of my tennis watching
career.

I could watch his matches just for the serve.

Don't get me wrong, I am a great federer fan but I wish he had this
weapon, esp. against nadal.

One odd passing shot off the forehand .. almost witht the same motion
as serve..

Its certainly the quirkiest pass I think ive seen.

"Stefan Edberg's forehand was fashioned by a drunk mechanic, but his
backhand was constructed in God's design studio."

That's Becker's racket - looks like 1995 Wimbledon final.
