I think it's real. Many pros could do that. And besides even if he missed a tennis ball dosen't hurt you that much even if it's hit at 170 km/h.

It sure does if it hits you in the eye. That guy was facing the shot.

Federer's Slice forehand shot which bounced in his own court and allowed Murray to break again in the first set was more unreal.

IF you want to see something really stupid watch this. The first guy got hurt and had to leave the stage. Look at the second guy's face. He's really scared. The action starsts from 4:00

Truth!

But this is 100% fake. Imagine the lawsuit & liability if Federer had slammed the guy in the eye. Federer nor Gillette would risk that. The crew guy might (payday!) just not them.

Federer could do that easily.
Maybe this isn't real, but I would think he could do that.

I'd beg to differ.
