    I haven't seen Federer hit that whip forehand in a while, so nice to see ( at 2:37 )

    When Fed hits it like that, no-one can match his racquet head speed and how PERFECT it looks

    I was watching Rafa hitting these against Rosol. It seems the shot is most doable when the opponent drops a ball short, the ball bounces very high but remains shallow and doesn't gain additional depth from any topspin.

    Wow, no-one can match that pace, not to mention the spin he probably put on the ball. I'd break my wrist on that shot.

    Of course you'd break your wrist, you're a panda!
