    Delpo and Safin were at the net chasing drop shots.. Safin hits a beautiful backhand crosscourt volley.. Delpo runs to get it and is caught in a bad position to hit any proper shot.. guess what he did.. he hit it like a between the legs shot.. but around where his backhand would be!!.. Amazing innovative shot for sure...

    Has anyone seen this shot before?

    Hopefully someone can post the clip...

    Well, sure it was a nice shot but Safin should have put it away easily but somehow missed his dropshot. Im not sure if its worth making a new thread for though.

    there was a lot of action on that racket for that shot lol, I think I would likely twist my wrist trying that.

    He's not. He just said it was against Safin two days ago.

    But heck, that between the legs lob was awesome. I can't get enough of it :)

    ya .. not that one.. but wow.. what a shot! :shock:

    ..its very similar to the one Tipsy hit on the other link by Starwind ..come to think of it.. tipsy's shot is even better as he hit from baseline and was a outright winner
