    I was having dinner with my family and my brother in laws family.

    I had conveniently sat in a seat where I could see the TV although it was on silent.

    When I saw that shot, I jumped off my chair and started screaming. Everybody started looking at me like something is wrong with me.

    I grabbed the remote to turn up the volume and told everyone to shut up and watch the shot.

    Upon replay, everyone was very impressed.

    Add to that, my nephew who is only 4 and knows only one tennis player by name, roger federer, turned around and asked me "is that roger federer?"

    I just looked at him and said yes and gave him a high five.

    highlight of my day right there.

    Awesome shot but quite a bit of luck involved there.

    Love Troicki's reaction though. :)

    Delightful. It's nice to see a kid with a bit of flair to him. I hope he can convert this to some results soon.

    Great shot...pity his previous shot sucked, which forced him to hit this ridiculous winner.

    He should just have called it "Federer hits shot of the year" and it would have 2 million views. It's a shame that these sort of shots get overlooked just because someone isn't in the top 10 or that well known.

    Just call it "Baby Federer hits shot of the year". Problem solved, without deception!

    Are you being serious? That shot is nothing special. Me and my buddies hit this shot on a regular basis at our tennis club. I don't think most people on this forum even play tennis.
