    anyone see that shot? he was way out of position on the full run and barely got to it... he held his racquet in a funky grip and hit a cross court winner...

    even his trainer and wife just sat in amazement.

    he totally made up that shot in .025 seconds... amazingly athletic, creative, inventive.

    he's good! twisted evil GOOD! :twisted:

    Pfft she might as well be. If she ever leaves Federer his game will probably drop.

    I saw it. It was amazing. It was godly in fact. Rogi held the racket vertically and whipped the ball cross court for the pass. The tennis Ninja never ceases to amaze me.

    On the contrary, fed should leave that girl and get himself a model.. like Trump's girlfriend or Roddick's girl... With fed's fame, he should be able to get any gold digger out there, and hopefully after a couple years, she'll learn to love him for his money too.

    Hewitt is playing really good tennis even though he's single now.

    Fed's gf runs his entire business along with giving him the occasional coaching tips. She's invaluable to him right now.

    Mirka = diamond
    Model chick = flower

    I'd choose a diamond over a flower anyday.

    It may be more routine for Federer because he's amazing but the shot was excellent. The sharp angle was crazy.
