Last week Roger Federer hit a tennis ball through his legs to the delight of Michael Jordan in attendance. That shot didn’t count, but this one certainly did:
The best part is that his opponent, Marcel Granollers, kind of just watches him in awe. “No way this 33-year-old dude covers this much court and still gets his racket down in time to — ahh damnit!.” This running save was the highlight of an otherwise shaky match for Federer. But after a first set, which got delayed a day by lightning and saw Federer give up 10-straight points, he won in convincing GOAT fashion.
The way Granollers stood there in disbelief brings us back to this Federer gem from the US Open in 2009.
