Just watching the Agassi vs. Federer USO Final, Federer did the same exact thing off that dropshot return that he hit. Agassi then hit a dropshot back, and the point ended up as Agassi's.finchy said:
i concur word for word... i never saw that live (that was my 15 year or so tennis haiatus(sp?)... but i've seen the replays... amazing...finchy said:
I remember seeing a much better shot by Rafter: an over the shoulder OVERHEAD (with the back to the net, while located quite far from the net) in a match with Sampras; kind of a reverse sky-hookKobble said:Agassi's over the shoulder shot comes to mind quickly. It had the two main characteristics of all great shots, completely unexpected, and unusual.
4] Andre 1995, the over the shoulder winner against Alex Corretja on the way to the final against Pete....in which they had an amazingly long point to finish the 1st set.finchy said:
Is that the shot which bounced on Hewitt's side, and then spun back over the net to Federer's side?Steve Huff said:Jimmy Connors was at the net. His opponent (can't remember who it was) hit a topspin lob over him. As the ball sailed over, Connors threw his racket into the air at the ball. It hit the ball about 10 feet over Connor's head and fell to the other side. Even though it was illegal and Connors lost the point, it still had to be one of the greatest. As far as "funny" goes, Hewitt reaching way over the net to just tap the ball against Federer, and NOT GETTING CALLED FOR IT, has to rank up there too.
Hilarious signature, man."SuDan: I have played for a long time w/ Continental Grip. Now my new coach says that I should change it for the Western Grip. I can't find them anywhere so can anyone of you please tell me where can I buy them."
That was an incredible shot. I turned the TV on and that was the first point i sawFeña14 said:I liked Kiefer's squash forehand against Federer at this years USO. That ball clipped the baseline at top speed.
The match was as good as over by then and it was a total fluke but it still put a smile on my face.
right that was wimbley semi though.ginger said:Federer-Roddick Wimbledon final, Fed running into net, has to hit a half volley. Instead of bunting it, he takes a full swing, picks it off the ground with extra topspin, and hits it for a short angle crosscourt winner on the line. On set point. Roddick had to laugh, it was so ridiculous.
yeah, Sudan's thread is still alive, but he is nowhere to be found :mrgreen:slice bh compliment said:Hilarious signature, man.
Anyway, tell SuDan to check out the grip selection at Western WEARhouse. Calfskin, ostrich, chamois...you name it. They even have boots to match. Sidenote: back when I had longer hair, I'd get the best bandanas there. Tons of colors and great prices.
Ok, Steve.Steve Huff said:Deuce, the ball never hit the ground on Hewitt's side. It never made it to the net. Even the commentators were talking about it, one saying they didn't make the call "in the spirit of the competition", whatever that meant.
