Roger Federer to improve his 'SABR' tactic in 2016

Roger Federer has promised to keep honing his chip-and-charge sneak-attack tactic as he prepares for 2016 season.

The 'SABR', short for 'Sneak Attack by Roger', involves rushing towards the net at the moment of a second serve and chipping the ball back, shortening his opponent's response time.

Federer, 34, who was in Singapore for the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL), successfully employed it against Novak Djokovic in the Cincinnati final and against Richard Gasquet in the US Open quarter-final at Flushing Meadows.
