Video of the "hook"
In this compilation of passing shots there are a few examples of the "hook" shot. Rafael Nadal is second after Roddick and there is a slo mo of exactly how to hit this shot.
Around 2:40, Federer hits a nice "baby curve" on the backhand side for a winner.
I was thinking 4 8.3 oz cans of Red Bull at 88 mg (352 mg total) of caffeine would be ok. I'd have him drink it 2 - 3 hours before the match, and drink a mystery potion at each changeover. His eyes would be wide open and ultra alert the whole match.
I believe the max allowable caffeine limit...
Federer needs to get "geeked up" on about 4 Red Bulls and come out with the eye of the tiger. This cool, nonchalant attitude isn't going to work with Nadal. I'd tell Roger to go out and punch him in the nose.
My services come cheap. $250,000/year and I'm your motivational coach, Roger.
I saw tears well up in McEnroe's eyes. McEnroe was the one getting emotional and thanking him for the best match he's ever seen. Federer said it hurts, but seemed more pissed off to me than being about to cry.
