I've pulled what I consider incredible shots in practice and in my matches which have given me great satisfaction, but of course, I've never been filmed pulling shots off.
These guys are to be commended for doing it in the semifinal of the US Open where the prize is big with the big match nerves and everything that goes with it. So yes, you make a great point, its nice Edberg had the opportunity to make it happen so soon after Lendl did it.
