  • the greatest tennis shot ever?

    Go to YouTube and search Federer.

    The look on both his face and Djokovic's is equally priceless.

    Federer should know - he's been on the receiving end of one of those shots at the Open.

    Search Santoro + between the legs(youtube).

      Yes, I couldn't believe this when I saw it. The context - The US Open, makes it even more impressive. He's not just jacking around, but sincerely trying to win. Amazing.

        Wow! Those through-the-legs shots are fairly common, used for chasing down lobs, but to hit a sharp passing shot winner like that is awesome.

          Sabattini used to do it so much Mary Carrillo started calling it the Sabatweenie.

          Fed has another ridiculous shot. It was a backhand overhead as he was going backwards for a winner.

            A close second in the shot of the day was Woods third shot from about 200 yards from behind a tree on the 600 yard par 5 9th hole yesterday. Up and down for a birdie.

                Federer has his hands full today with Juan Martin del Potro. Federer appears beatable.

                  Yep, and he just let an s-bomb fly on the umpire. He's rattled.

                      Or not . . . and if anything, that late challenge has totally focused him on playing even tougher.

                      later . . . now I AM worried.
                      del Potro is playing to win; Federer is playing not to lose!

                      later still . . . is del Potro running out of gas?

                            Never heard of Del Potro until this tournament. I wonder when the last time was an Argentinian won a major on hard court? Probably never. I think when Vilas won the US Open it was at Forest Hills, which I believe was clay surface. When Vilas won the Australian, I don't think it was hard court, either.

                            But Del Potro, coming from Argentina, must have a lot of clay court experience. I wonder how his 6-6 frame and skills will play on that surface?

                            Might we have in our midst yet another tennis GOAT?
