Fed is human, right? Cause I think he might really be a Jedi in disguise. The force was with him :shock:

I love how Murray does nothing after he hits those amazing shots but when his opponent hits an unforced error he screams as loud as he can

I'd like to nominate these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0MH9pyrfw4 because they were hit in the same match as well.

Hahaha imagine Fed or Nadal wearing a legionnaires cap during a match hahaha


P.S. I reckon Murray's 'round-the-net shot is just as good as the one's Federer has done, but they're good for different reasons. Murray's shot is one of the most impressive gets I've ever seen, and to top it off when he reached the ball he hit it 'round the post for a winner. Some of Federer's backhands 'round the post were much more deftly placed though, astounding accuracy.

I love this one, when Edberg hit it, it was like a slap in the face to not try it again, and then love Lendl's humor at the end as well.

do I need to go into this again?

That's been posted. And Murray's around the posts are by no means as crazy as Fed's many, see first post on third page.

So because it has been done before, it mutes the amazingness? So Federer's tweeners aren't good because Santoro was notorious for making lots of them? I don't like Murray either, but that was an incredible get, especially on the run for a winner that far away from the court

Yes its true the shot are different and being a Fed fan i like more the Federer's one, but Murray's shot was very impressive, Cilic almost hit a return winner very angled that ball was very hard to reach let alone hitting a screaming winner.

no, it is amazing, just not as impossible as the shots that Federer made...

It looks like it hits his back from that perspective but if you watch closely on the replay you can tell that the ball just landed short and didn't touch him at all

Nice.

You should really post more often

Yeah I had to watch that one a few times going wait did that ball hit him? But then I realized it bounced off the court. It really looked like it bounced right off his body the first few times I watched it.
