If you were making the perfect viral tennis video then Roger Federer and a between-the-legs wonder shot would be two of the elements to add to the mix.
And why not throw in some Michael Jordan as well?
What are we talking about? This impossible shot that the Fed Express pulled off in his US Open first round clash against Marinko Matosevic.
With his opponent having decided the point was won after sending a lobbed ball to the baseline, Federer was able to show remarkable speed for a man his age and chase it down, before pulling off a spectacular ‘hot dog’ shot.
To rub salt into Matosevic’s wounds, the ball hit him in the back as he strolled away.
‘His Airness,’ who was sitting in the crowd, could do nothing but applaud and laugh.
