Federer's amazing shot

You may have seen this, but in case you didn't it's worth a look. This guy is classy and hardly ever shows emotion. He says he actually practices this shot.

Yep, I saw that. Oh well, like the old saying goes........there was never a horse that couldn't be rode, and never a cowboy that couldn't be throwed.

What an amazing shot! Looks like a tough one to practice.

That shot has been around for a long time, and a lot of the players practice it. I remember Yannick Noah doing it back in the early 80s, when I used to watch a lot of tennis. I had met Arthur Ashe back in 1974, and really got into the sport (watching!) for a while. I've lost interest in most pro sports over the years. Still, an amazing shot.
