“I think I would take Federer’s serve,” began Azarenka. “Because I think sometimes that it is a bit underestimated how good it is with the accuracy, maybe not necessarily with power where there are other players who are dominating that area but the precision is.”

Vika is definitely a big fan of Federer and his service. As a result, she stated that even though the 40-year-old doesn’t generate much power in his serve, he hits the ball with some great accuracy and precision- which is enough for creating huge problems for his opponents.
