As I was looking for Federer/Lu highlights on youtube..they were only clips of this shot. Probably the best running-backhand-down-the-line-around-the-post shot I've ever seen. I think he had a couple other ones, but this one seems to top them. Almost hit the ball boy in the face.

Yes, usually I don't get exited over "around the post" shots( just because it's around the post doesn't mean it's difficult to make, just rarer to happen) but his one handed BH made this one look really good.

lu's backhand was actually great...didn't think federer would still get it when I was watching it live
