Just saw a slow motion clip of Federer serving on day 1. It appears he had his eyes completely closed on impact. Now he's just showing off !;)

Sorry, it was on Fox Sports TV coverage in Aus. While I'm not suggesting he hits his serve normally with his eyes shut it was unusual to see a pro do it, especially one of his calibre. Probably turned out to be an ace anyway !;)

Very crazy indeed. Since the eyes are such an essential part of the power transfer from the legs.

Pronate the eyes at contact to achieve maximum racquet head speed folks!
