You people have no idea what you are talking about. This is the greatest RF point.

Lob from backhand wrist flick with his back to the net and lunging. Sure, some luck in that shot but I don't think I've ever seen anyone else pull of this shot:

That was a good example of what prime Fed could do. He was same age as Novak is now.

This is the winner, everyone should know this by now.

Still it's fun to try and find others that are lesser known.

The one in the op was awesome, need to be crazy coordinated to pull that off. I'd forgotten how well Canas played in that match and how crazy quick he was.

I am with OP, the first vid is toughest of the bunch to pull, the timing is incredible.

I've seen people mistake this for a backhand before, but it's actually a forehand or a tweener type shot from the backhand side, which is what adds to it's greatness.

While I agree this one is better than the OP's, like you said there was some luck involved... I mean, I honestly think he didn't wanna do that, he just wanted to get the ball to the other side of the net...

On the other hand, the OP's shot, he had complete intent of doing that. He knew exactly what he had to do to make that ball go down the line.

Sorry, my bad, not the OP, the second vid, the one against Guga.

Pretty sure it's a BH, and not anywhere near his best shot ever. It's good hustle, great even, but a little lucky.
