    Did anyone see his running forehand vs Federer yesterday in Basel? It made federer giggle and was the best running forehand I have seen in my life but the producer did not run the replay of it... :/ Anyone got it on video?

    It was down the line with Federer quite close, but it was too hard for him to reach it.

    As far as my memory goes, yes! :) But it was so strange, the commentators were going crazy over it but the stupid producer missed it somehow and no replay was shown :/

    The Eurosport commentators were not going crazy over it. In fact, they just said "Korolev can show that to his kids."

    IIRC, the shot wasn't that spectacular...he got there in plenty of time and he just hit a flat, hard shot. That was probably why they didn't show any replays or have youtube videos of it...

    The one Federer hit against Seppi in the same tournament was remarkable. He went full speed from one side of the court to the other (the ball was reeaaal low) and he hit a banana type shot just barely over the net as he reached super low to get the ball.

    Here is the Federer FH against Seppi

    That one has more feel to it, and might be more impressive. The korolev forehand was still cooler to me :)
